My XPS 410 has been freezing every time I log on to my name, even in safe mode and as the admin. When it freezes i can still move the mouse but cant click on anything and a high pitch buzzing noise is emitted from the tower. I took the side off the last time it was buzzing so i could figure out where it is coming from. It is coming from a little black speaker on the mother board. I cleaned out the fans and ran multiple virus/malware programs (malware bytes and avira antivir) and still it freezes. i dont know what to do and i need my computer because i am a student. Thanks so much!!

Try another key board, I had one that had gotten junk under the keys after a cleaning it was fine. You can check my theory by unplugging the key board when it starts to buzz!

If it is a PS2 keyboard it is not recommended to hot swap.

If it is a USB connected keyboard then there should be no problem.

Correct a PS2 will not re make its connection but it is simple to shut it down then reinsert the plug.

Have seen PS2 ports fail after hot swapping. Just an FYI. They were never intended to hot swap.
