Hi all, older machine AMD 3200 with MCE 2k5, Asus K8v mobo, 1 gig ram, pulled the entire system apart a week or two ago. Figured I'd try the entire system again, so only hooked up psu, mobo, ram and vid card. when I plug in psu, and turn on, LOUD whine, case fans spin, and nothing. Is this the same mobo prob? Searching the forum, I noted on my last post BB referenced a series of beeps w/o ram installed, but this whine occurs both with and without ram, and its really loud

Thanx for any input.

Joel

Is it from the speaker in the case, or mobo or from a fan? I had an old fan that would whine pretty loud until it got going, also had a little piezo in the case to alert when it was opened, and another on mobo that was pretty annoying sometimes.

Mobo capacitor gone bad perhaps? Is it a high pitched screech like 1 fingernail on a chalkboard?


Do you get any posting beeps at all out of the mobo speaker? Does it even have a speaker (did it beep in the beginning of a boot when it still worked?)

Rather piercing screech, coming from mobo. Its an old board anyway, so I just got a bunch of new goodies at Frys (mobo, X2 7750 CPU, 2 gigs ram and 500w PSU all under $200, woohoo) Hopefully I can get this baby up and running again. Thanks for the input though, if I knew how to delete this post I would. . .

It sounds like "oh god - why do you have to keep pi**ing around with this"


I traced the source to my girlfriends mouth


hah


My whine has gotten better of late - hammered out the kinks. She uses it every day now - it's our only source of media entertainment.

Fan noise, tap your htpc & it should go away.
