Whining noise comes from pc

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I don't know if this is the right place to put this but whenever I load up a game mainly Dragon Age a loud whine comes from my pc. What could it be?

Most likely capacitor whine on your GPU.

What does that mean like will everything be okay or is something wrong?

You should be fine.

Almost all of the GPU's that I have owned have this symptom.

Here's a vid\\sound clip of my whine, this is from the GPU, seeing as you have a Radeon it's more than likely that, but listen to this to verify.

Okay thanks for letting me know. Wish it didn't happen though it's an annoying sound.

Yes... quite annoying (eventually one gets used to it).

If you are so inclined, Here is something to read about the symptom.

Yar, that sound is what led me to switch to Nvidia.

Yup. My 1st 4870 did that while folding. It wasn't very loud, though; I really had to listen to hear it.
