Tell me =] If I don't have to send it back I won't_ Time cost more than money does(well time is money but time is more precious lol)

I only paided 69.99 for it plus free 2nd day shipping =]

Basically get some clear nail polish, then open up the power supply (this voids the warranty). Anywhere you see an inductor:


spread some nail polish on it. You can ignore the one under the heatsink next to the big primary capacitors, and the ones near the output wires (those aren't involved in the +5VSB circuit). The nail polish is non-conductive and has negligible capacitance, so has no affect on the circuit, and when it hardens it will lock the coils on the inductors in place so they can't vibrate.

However, if you're unfortunate it may be the +5VSB transformer's coils vibrating, in which case there's nothing you can do and you've just voided your warranty.
