I have recently discovered a whining noise with my PC when it boots up. I have checked the PSU fan, CPU fan, Internal cooling fan, and my Graphics Card fan, but am unable to determine where the noise is coming from. I will add that after the PC has booted up, (about 2 minutes), the whining noise disappears. I have a Mesh Matrix AMD XP3000+ running WinXP, 512MB, MSI Nvidia FX5600 Graphics card, Sony CD/DVD ROM drive and DVD-Rewriter drive (DW-U10A). I have not noticed any problems with performance. And my PC is less than a year old. I would be very grateful for any help
I suspect the answer lies in the PSU unit. Recently when I tested the PC with the side panel off I re-booted the PC twice, and on the second re-boot the whining noise did not occur. Therefore, it seems to occur from cold boot up only. I have checked the rear of the PC fan and the temperature is often warm. Now I will have the ineviable task of trying to get Mesh Computers to rectify the problem. (I would rather ask for my money back). I will keep the Forum informed on the problem. Thanks again to all. Kind regards Rogmur
