Hi

I have recently bought a new PC. 64bit AMD Athlon, 512mb ram. Has worked fine for first 10 days or so then thsi morning when I turn it on I get a loud high pitched screeching noise coming from the CPU. The PC works fine but my ear drums now do not. I have a blue panel on the front which shows the temperature etc but now all the lcd bits of that diaplay are lit at once so I'm guessing that's something to do with the problem. It's driving me insane. Anyone any ideas? Much appreciated, thanks.

Hey,

I think this topic should be in the hardware problems forum, but anyway.
If the PC is under warranty I'd get whoever you bought it off to take a look at it. If it's new like you say it is it shouldn't be doing that. What kind of PC is it, a custom PC or a brand PC?

Agreed!  Take it back.  They should either fix it or replace it.  Do it now before your store warranty expires.  I don't know about in the UK, but most stores in my area of the US only allow returns/exchanges for a short period of time....then you are stuck sending the sucker back to the manufacturer for repairs.

Don't try to fix it yourself, this may void the warranty.  Just take it back.

Good luck to you,
