Well I reset my bios last night. I’ve yet to hear the sound or see any errors. I watched the movie Heat almost all the way to the end with no problems. I’m wondering, or maybe just hoping, it’s just that other movie I was watching. That’s doubtful, but who knows anymore.
I’m not going to reinstall my sound drivers until I hear it again, but I don’t think you all understand the issue. The sound isn’t the real issue. The sound is a symptom of a much bigger problem. Before I removed my 3rd
hard drive, that sound was like a code saying “your system has frozen, or such and such program is about to crash”. It got to a point where it would crash any game I played, and freeze when attempted to play certain ones. It also made the sound on every movie, which would eventually freeze the video. I would be unable to move my mouse to try anything, so I would be forced to manually reset the computer. I also received several blue screens, which mostly tells me this is a hardware issue. One of these blue screens killed my Corsair RAM, which is one of the reasons I believed it was a memory issue a long while back.
I hate to tell you to just replace parts until you figure it out but I can't think of much else to try that is free.
This is what I may need to do…
If it is your power supply grab a corsair it's the only way to go. Kingwin are garbage the only reason I've heard of then is I've just read how crappy they are.
The power supply is just the next logical step in replacement rounds. I replaced my RAM after this evolved into an even more common thing, and eventually blue screened multiple times, killing my old RAM. Since the issue was gone for a month, I believed it was either the power supply was not giving me enough juice, or the hard drive is seriously messed up. I don’t need a 3rd
hard drive though, It was just a carry-over from an old system so I could transfer some things.
Since your system is so heavily air-cooled, my money is on a bad fan for the moment until you get back with a new update... Your system is left on 24/7, so that would seem resonable--I skimmed your old threads on the same problem...
I have 3 monitors. The 3rd
monitor is on the other side of the room, and is much larger. I use it for movies and sometimes games. Because of that, if I sit facing my other 2 monitors and the computer, this 3rd
monitor is at my back. That’s where I have my speakers as well. The sound is coming from behind me at that point, meaning the computer is not actually near the sound. Unless the fans are drawing too much power for some odd reason, I don’t think it’s the source of the problem.
