Thread: Computer Buzzing What is it?

  1. #1
    So if a computer starts buzzing when you start up and it stops after a while wheres the sound coming from? I'm thinking its the fans since my case for 60 bucks, came w/ 3 fans and a 420 watt power supply... any ideas?

    Most likely a fan. You can stop one at a time with your finger to find out which one.

    There may be a bee-hive inside.

    Open it up and have a look.

    stop it with my finger while its moving? Well, i took the fans out and put them on the floor and then started my computer and one of them started moving across the floor, would that be the one?

    The buzzing fan would be the one making a buzzing sound. Put your ear near each in turn to find out.

    Yes. They are very easy to stop. Just put you finger on the center hub.

    Is that a common computer problem?

    Sounds easy lol but the thing is it stops after a while, like if i turn on my computer and then it buzzes i shut it and then open my case and then turn on my computer it stops buzzing, I think it maybe 2 or 3 of the fans broken since i've taken out one fan before and it still buzzed, If i take the fans out of its rack it stops buzzing, so thats another werid thing once i put it back it starts buzzing again

    I'm gonna take a shot in the dark here.....
    perhaps the mounts are making the noise?
