Nintendo Switch review: Hands-on with the intuitive modular console and its disappointing games…
I wondered if there was anyone who could help me solve a problem, which has been driving me mad for ages. My PC runs pretty quietly but has a habit of emmitting high-pitch chirps and tones during certain operations. Certain things like scrolling through a DOC or PDF file with the mouse-wheel cause it to start chirping away like a little insect, as does opening web pages. These things would be only minor annoyances to me but the biggest problem comes whenever I use a music sequencer like Cubase or even Wavelab - opening any programme designed to record audio input to the hard-drive causes it to emit quite an audible constant high-pitch tone.
I've ruled out the following possible causes:
- its not the CPU fan or any other fan, I've stopped them all for a few seconds and the sound is still there.
- its not the hard disk, I changed it and the problem continues. Also, the sound does not appear to be coming from the vicinity of the hard disk in the case.
- Its not the soundcard, I used it on an older machine and it works just fine.
I'm really fed up with this problem. I love PCs and I'd love to be able to use mine again for music but I can't stand this problem anymore. I'm considering buying a Mac for my next upgrade if I can't sort this out.
