No noises came from my old graphics card, nVdia GeForce4 (128MB) [spoilt...], which was replaced by a new MSI Radeon 9550 (128MB)graphics card, of which produced strange noises when the VCORE +V12 value crosses 14.00*C (checked CMOS earlier on).
When these noises continue for about 10 seconds without stopping, then my monitor screen just blacks out.

At first i thought that it was just my computer being overheated, of which i opened part of my CPU cover to aid the cooling, but it didn't work and it continues to produce those strange noises.

Any help would be greatly appreciated...

Below is my computer info.

HeY! I just bought a new comp a couple days ago and I got weird noise from mine the first evening it ran also!!!

Is it a faulty part. I have a HIS Exalibur 9250 radeon 128 mb video card. The sound was kind of like a vibrating spinning wheel getting dragged or caught. or could it be my hard drive is no good.

Dont know, just thought Id let you know. If the problem continues, I am taking it back for them to check it out for me.

Hi Missy and welcome to BC.
It sounds like something is caught in one of the fans. If you bought it very recently that would be an excellent idea. If they can't find the problem or even if they do POST back to us. We would love to know what the problem was, so we can pass it on to others. If they can't, we will help you fix the problem.
Hope to hear from you soon.

Not too long back I have a motherboard with a bad capacitor. It would start to whistle then the computer would reboot. I was told a captor on the board for the power to the processor went bad. I scraped board and tested. It was bad.
The point is that a capacitor on the card may be going out or the card is getting to hot. Is the card very close to another card or compontent?

Thanks acklan... for taking your time to reply to this thread.

The MSI Radeon 9550 is 1 slot away from my sound card, and it's heat sinks are facing down in my tower chasis(base at top, pointy ends at bottom).
I'm presently using a external fan to blow at my tower to ease the beeping noise a little. This sorts of help the VGA card cool down a little i guess...
Nothing is caught within the heat sink (i took it out of the chasis to check yesterday afternoon).

By the way, after blacking out, the music will still be playing (if it was playing -just found out yesterday), and it doesn't reboot.

Please mention if any other information is needed...
More information on when it starts and stops beeping:

I though you would like to read the link yourself.
I would have thought the fan would turn a little faster, about 3000 to 3600 rpm.
Nova do you have anti-virus and anti-spyware installed and update on you computer? If not the te following..

AVG 7 Free Edition (I personally use)
or
Avast Personal Edition (freeware)
Adaware SE freeware
Spybot S&D freeware
Ewido Security Suite 14 day trial

I will also recommend cCleaner. It is a great little utility that will automaticly clean out you temp internet files and cookies. I would recommend using the default mode if you are not an advanced uaer.

Yeah...
I've got Spybot S&D, SpywareBlaster, and my antivirus is NOD32, with a firewall from Sygate.
That's all...

By the way, just now when i was starting up the computer, my monitor didn't respond and there were also beeping sounds. the monitor only responded after a few reboots(soft power off and on again).
Is this problem getting more serious?


I would have thought the fan would turn a little faster, about 3000 to 3600 rpm.

How can i get those fans to go at a faster rate?

It seems like my fans are running at 100% efficiency already...

Is it that there's something wrong with my motherboard; or
is it just a cooling problem?

I just installed speedfan on my computer, and just started logging the speed of the fan and the +12V value. will be posting it up soon... i hope... (because it's already beeping, even for now)

Ok... this is my +12V screen shot, but it's not very clear...
Hope this helps

Posted Image

It's concurrently 14.65V for the +12V value, and rising steadily...
Is that too high/low? If so, how do i rectify this problem?
