Hey everyone,

Something inside my desktop computer is making a long beep/buzz combo noise. It doesn't happen until after I log in and it starts doing some sort of process. It doesn't happen every time, but I can seem to force the noise more constantly when I play a video. The noise will start and stop and can be of frequently different lengths. I've never heard of a noise like this happening while the computer is on, so I'm not sure if it is something like a CPU or the video card dying?

When I try to get my ear near it, it doesn't sound like it is coming from the power supply, but around the cpu and video card areas.

Thanks everyone!

Have you checked to see if it is one of the cooling fans going bad. They are speed controlled.
