As the subject mentioned. There is a high pitched sound when the TV is off or when when I switch to a different input. Even remoting into the computer using GotoMyPC makes the squeal stop. Any suggestions on fixes? It didn't do it right away but started after only about two or three days.


Windows 7 64 Bit

Intel DGI45ID

Radeon HD 5450 1 GB DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16

I'm fairly certain it's from the card itself. It happens when the everything is off but the computer so that rules out all the other non-pc sources. I unplugged the external hard drive this morning to make sure it wasn't that.

Sounds like a bad capacitor?

I'm just going to send it back. I wish there was a local place to buy stuff like this. Between shipping costs both ways I'll have paid half the price of the card to have tried the defective card for less than a week.
