I have a problem with a new computer. Customer complains about a hiss noise. I know the sound, you’ve probably all heard it before. If you have headphones, plug them in the on-board audio port and turn up the volume and render some 3d graphics.
The problem is, the noise is not comming from the headphones, but from the computer it self. I’ve tested PSU, GFX + turned off fans. Thats not it.
I am running out of ideas. Can anyone help? I have never heard this noise comming from the actualy computer before. Well once, but it was the GFX card that was the problem there.
The noise is usually there after windows boots. However it’s also there when you reboot the system after it has been turned on for a while.
The system specs:
Asus M2N32-SLI/Deluxe, nForce590 SLI AM2
AMD X2 4200+ AM2
Corsair TWIN2X2048-6400C4, 2x1024MB
XFX GeForce 7600GT, 256MB, PCI-E
Chill Innovation CP-520A3, 520W, ATX2.2
WD Caviar SE 1600JS, 160GB, SATAII, 8 MB
Thanks in advance.
