The voltage is usually regulated in the PSU so not sure exactly what you mean.

Do you really have a Voltage regulator - if so what type - or do you mean an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS).

Are you in the UK - the use of Voltage Regulators should be pretty rare in the UK I would have thought.

In any case, it shouldn't be making cracking noises. Can you run without it? In the UK you should be able to.
