Default Re: Overheating and buzzing

What brand power supply do you have and the watts on it? Maybe your power supply is about to die and is making the buzziing sound.

Take out your new video card and use the integrated one, does it still make the noise?

Is the new video card installed properly with the integrated graphics disabled?
Was the old video drivers uninstalled so conflict don't occur.

If you still can't find out where the buzzing is coming from, disconnect everything except for the bare minimum to narrow it down.

Yes, the old video driver was uninstalled. Doesn't that mean that I can't use the old card any more?

My new GPU does work - I can play TF2, which I couldn't with my old card.

I have no idea about the power supply. I bought the PC premade.

Bloody lovely - my computer is now making a clicking sound, kind of like the one you hear during a hard reboot. Does anyone have anything?
