G'day Macarius, and Welcome to BC.

 

 

A stray wire being touched by a fan blade ?

 

Something caught in the fan under the graphics card ?

Thanks! Glad to be here. I forgot to mention my computer freezes then crashes whenever the sound comes back. It's kinda intermittent but somewhat frequent

omg....sounds like a truck !!

 

I am thinking a hard drive.

 

Need someone with better hearing than me, and knowledge in that area.....

 

Seeing it freezes, crashes, and probably blue screens....I will see if i can get the topic moved to that area

Yes it does freeze, crash and blue screen. I suspected the hard drive but it just seemed too loud.

That's a very weird noise try and open the case and move the recorder closer to the hard drive and see if it sounds louder by my experience that noise sounds very loud like a big clock going fast.

That sounds quite likely,,,open the cd drive, and leave it open.

 

Does the noise still persist ?

Would the cd drive cause the computer to crash? It wouldn't go blue screen because of it?
