PC crashes and high pitch noise from speakers when playing game?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm not sure where to put this but this is an active forum and I do have NVidia.

Any game I play causes my computer to crash (without a BSOD) along with a terrible, loud, high-pitched noise from my speakers. There seems to be no certain amount of time it takes. I have tried reinstalling my drivers but it still happens. I checked my temperatures and they are all at safe levels. Also, strangely, I can't just use the reset button or hold the power button before I restart. I actually have to turn off the psu before restarting to get past the POST. I am absolutely stumped. Anyone have a clue?

i used to have the same problem, i had to install the latest drivers, i use a different graphics card now, but are you running a overclock on any parts of your system?

Something is overclocked too far. I can pretty much guarantee that is the problem (given that I've experienced it dozens of times on dozens of systems, and gotten it to go away EVERY time by reducing a clock or two somewhere ... GPU or CPU OC, both can cause it). It's not likely to be heat related specifically, at least, not in such a way that you can detect it given the limited temp sensing capabilities that cpus and gpus have available.

If the 6 pin power isn't connected to my 8800 gt it will let out quite the squeal.
