High pitched whining sound from new EVGA GeForce GTX750 1G

Q: High pitched whining sound from new EVGA GeForce GTX750 1G

I just installed my new EVGA GeForce GTX750 1G G-Sync video card and it works great, but I'm getting a really high pitched whining sound from it.

I know the older versions of this card had noisy fans but this one is quiet except for this high pitched noise. I saw threads in the EVGA forum for similar problems on other EVGA cards.

I think I'm going to return it but would like to know what is an equivalent card for a similar price. I paid $102 for it and I now see it for $109 so something in that price range would be great.

I'm not a gamer, just wanted a decent video card with a DVI output so I could use my DVI KVM switch with my two Desktop computers.

Back in 2007 I had a noisy fan in a brand new desktop. And (after considerable angst) the source was the NVIDIA GeForce graphics card. Turned out there was a white wire touching the GeForce fan under the card, and that was the source of the noise. I moved the wire and restarted the machine. It was totally quiet. Perhaps a quick look at your fan to make sure nothing is touching it?

Hello Guys. Recently i bought a brand new aspire aspire V nitro.The problem is that there is a irritating high noise coming from my laptop very frequently when i am using it.Also, the fans start blowing really intensively sometimes, and then suddenly they are very quiet. I was wondering if you guys have any idea what the problem might be.The thing with the fans is not that bad and i can handle that, but the high pitched noise is really annoying and is holding me off using my laptop sometimes. Thanks in advance, Karsten

Hi all,

Looked over some older threads here after searching for "high-pitched whine", but didn't find anything that addressed exactly what I'm experiencing.

I am hearing a high pitched whine which sounds like it's coming from the tower (or maybe the monitor?) The strange thing is, I ONLY hear this whining when an application is maximized.

If I minimize my Opera window, so it only shows on the task bar, the noise stops. When I maximize the window so I can continue typing this, the whine immediately starts up again. Weird...


A:High Pitched Whining When Windows Are Maximized

It could be the monitor and it only does it when the screen is bright. I've seen that with a few CRT monitors before.

Hi, hopefully someone can help me as I've messed up my laptop somehow.

It's an Acer Travelmate 290 model CL51

Trying to make it run faster, I tried installing 1gb more of ram, clipping it in alongside the existing 256mb unit. However, when turning the computer on it does one of two things. 1 - emits a high pitched whining noise and does nothing else until the power supply is removed. Or 2 - starts up with no noise, but the screen stays completely blank.

When I fitted the RAM I followed all the instructions, touched metal before touching the chips, removed the battery and the power cord, placed it in carefully etc. I've also tried taking it out again, or running the laptop on only the new RAM, but all combinations lead to the same whiney noise or blank screen.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance

A:High pitched sound

Thats an odd one, I would say it was the HSF (heat sink fan) for your CPU but since it happens when you move your mouse, it must be either the mouse or the CPU itself... Try using a different type of mouse (ie PS2 or USB). If this doesnt solve the problem, check to see if everything is plugged in properly (actually you should do that before mouse)... And if that doesnt work, see if you can swap your CPU over with another one to see if this is the problem.

My dad was the last one to use the computer and now he's gone out so I don't know if this problem was there when he was on it, although he didn't say anything to me.

But now that I'm on it, I've noticed the sound output sounds different. When I loaded Windows, the traditional Windows login tune played...but it was all high. It's not the volume settings, it's actually a higher sound, and this is actually affecting every single piece of sound coming out of the speakers on the monitor.

I tried playing a song and the guy's voice is all messed up - high-pitched because of this.

I don't know why it's done this or how to solve it. If anyone can help I would be very happy! Thank you in advance!

A:Huh? My sound is all...different and high-pitched...

That's actually kind of hard to say what that might be. Believe it or not I've had my computer do the same thing, and after doing a spyware/viral scan, it straightened out. So it could be one of many things....just some insight.

I'm sure the more seasoned folks can help you more than I can, but I was just giving some insight.

Figured out a fix to make it stop, but still trying to find out the source of it.

Fix was to go into "Speakers Properties / Advance", and change the default format of 16 bit, 44100 Hz (CD Quality) to another, then change it back.

When I run AVG or any other malware/spyware software or trojan scans, the PC starts to give out a high-pitched oscillating sound...similar to European police cars. It doesn't happen all the time, but more often lately. I have noticed that this sound occurs near the end of the run and stops when the scan is completed. The sound doesn't come out of the speakers, but out of the tower. I don't get the sound when I'm running anything else. I have found other posts about a similar sound, but the circumstances are quite different.
Is this some kind of a warning sound? What's happening???

Hey, I'm getting some sort of feedback from my speakers. It seems to only happen when there is no music/sound playing. Where does this come from? Is my sound card picking up feedback from moving parts inside the box? Is there a conflict with the onboard sound device (if so, how do I disable this or even check to see which one is "running the show")?

Things I did since the last time I can remember not hearing feedback:

Upgraded motherboard ASUS A7N8X Deluxe
Added wireless headphones (nice ones from Sony - about $180 - but not sure of the model)
Upgraded to WinXP Pro from 2000

Hi RunOrDie,

Does noise stops when you disconnect the both mouse and keyboard. If possible then directly connect them to the system without using the USB extender and let us know if the noise occurs.

Also, if it is whirring noise then it could be from fan and you should check for vents to clear any dirt blocking the fan.

Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.

It starts when I open a window or a program, but when I minimize it it stops or becomes almost non-present. It is not all the time though. The problem is that I don't know if this is a problem and should I be concerned?

Never mind, I found a simple thread on another forum and one of the replies sugested it was from improper refresh rate. And that was exactly it. Few days ago I played GTA: San Andreas and it usualy changes my screen refresh rate to 60 hz but I forgot to change it back to 85 hz. Problem solved, thank you for this forum.

A:High-pitched sound from system(almost inaudible)

Turn off or unplug your speakers first. All sorts of spurious responses to whatever is going on can cause odd sounds from sound system. Then use a piece of 1 inch rubber hose or tubing to listen (as in a stethoscope) for noise from the power supply fan, or cpu fan. Check also the video graphics card if it has one.
Take a can of difluoroethane gas (dust off, or similar) and clean the cpu heat sink and fan of dust and hair.
Look over your wires inside the case to be sure none are hanging loose and intermittently touching the inside wall of the case.
Look for sound or video changes from some of your installed software, and particularly with games.

My wife's Samsung LCD computer monitor (which has a laptop attached to it) recently started making a high-pitched, mosquito-like sound. It comes and goes, but is there most of the time. If we shut the monitor off and back on, the sound goes away for a minute or so. We've moved the laptop away from the monitor, in case it was some sort of interference noise, but that didn't help.

I hear a really high pitched sound coming from my computer, specifically my PSU.
I can only hear it from certain angles, but it is really annoying after a long time of putting up with it. How do i diagnose where the sound is coming from and if it's the capacitor or the fan?

The sound goes away when the PC is off.

Any help would be appreciated.

A:Annoying high pitched sound coming from my pc?

This sort of high pitched noise is usually a vibrating coil. Unfortunately coils (aka inductors) are common components on motherboards, graphics cards and PSUs.

Are you 100% sure it's coming from the PSU ? If so there's not much you can do except try to ignore it or get another PSU.

It could also be a worn fan bearing. Try to locate it exactly.

The laptop in this case is a Acer Aspire 5050 (bought at Walmart about 3-4 years ago).

I turn the volume up and when i get close to about half way on the volume bar, i start hearing this high pitched whistle-like sound which gets louder the more you turn it up. The sound is continuous so I am not able to turn up the volume up higher than 50% or so which is not loud enough.

So what is the problem here and how can I fix this? Please Help...

A:Getting a high pitched sound when i Turn Up the volume?

The whistle is either heterodyne noise or your picking up sound from a microphone type source.

Do you have a microphone plugged in? If so try tapping on it and see if the tapping comes across the speakers.

Try taping the unit, do you hear the results through the speakers?

You may be picking up cross-talk through a poorly filtered circuit, this may be caused by poor circuit design.

Try going to your audio properties and adjusting the line-in volume to see if this noise changes in pitch.

Make sure you do not have any wires or devices close by that are connected to or in the direct location, that can be causing the white-noise issue.

Broadcast Radio stations or continuous carrier devices can cause this issue to happen, it is RF interference.

You could have the device near a televison or other device with is emitting RF interference.

Make sure the electrical wiring in the house is polorized and grounded properly.

Kind regards.

Video recorded with the odd sound. you may need head phones and a lot of volume to hear it clearly. The dominant sound is just the GPU fan spooling up.

Strange sound from my GPU during ATi tool run. - YouTube

I know its something electrical but other than that I have no idea. It doesn't seem to hurt anything but it is annoying. Its also exclusive to ATi tool and [email protected] Games and graphic benchmarks don't produce the sound.

Hi, i just bought some new logitech x-240 speakers and The trouble is, the sound pitch is too high. we've just connected to the Internet and even live radio sounds as though it's being spoken by Pinky and Perky (famous in the UK as two talking puppet pigs who delighted generations of children by speaking in speeded-up voices)if i go on youtube and put on a song, the sound of the musik is fine but then when the singer/artist starts singing, ther voice is squeky and if they have a high pitched voice already then i cant hear them at all Does anyone know what the problem is, and whether it can be fixed? Many thanks. I'm an IT Trainer and know how to teach people MS Office etc., but I know nothing about the elves and goblins who live in that box . some one please help meee!!

This notebook (less than 3hours out of the box) emits a very faint but annoying high-pitched noise.

A google search suggests this is not uncommon in Toshiba's notebook range but I've not found any 'fixes'.

Any ideas? Thanks for any help.

A:Satellite Pro S - High-pitched sound from left of touchpad


What Satellite notebook you have exactly?

It?s not easy to say what the reason is for this but sometimes that sounds are caused from the HDD. So maybe you should check the HDD using Drive Fitness Test or you start the notebook without HDD and go in the BIOS. Do you hear the sound without HDD too?

Hey there, I'm having this problem with my computer. Sometimes it will randomly go black and freeze up and also high pitched sound similar to a tv but louder emits from any and all speakers that are on including headphones. I think this is a problem with the sound card but I dont really know what the problem is so I didnt know what to ask support. BTW my card is the Sound Blaster Audigy Platinum eX 24bit.

If you want the rest of the specs..

AMD Athlon 64 3500+
MSI K8T Neo 2 Mobo
ATI Radeon 9800+ Pro
Thermaltake 400w PSU
2x 512 Kingston ValueRam
Windows XP Professional SP2

I hope someone can help me on this because this has happened to me once or twice while I was playing Counter-Strike, and CAL is coming up. I don't wanna get dropped in CAL.


A:Computer freezes up, screen goes dark, high pitched sound

Check the fan on your processor and video card. While the system is powered down, you should be able to spin the fans, and you should feel no real resistance. If they're tough to spin, then there's your problem.

Hey guys I've got a problem. My GPU GTX780 GHz is making a buzzing / whining sound at very high fps and I mean 300+. I tried to google it but most buzzing seems to be made by PSU however PSU has nothing to do with fps. And I assume that the power consumption is roughly the same when playing Crysis 3 120 fps or Dead Space 2 400+ fps.
Yes I know I could use v-sync but sometime it causes noticeable input lag.

Is it normal? Safe for the GPU? Does it go away?

Thanks for info

A:GPU buzzing / whining at very high fps

What is you PSU make and model? When was the last time you cleaned your system out (physically powering down, opening the case and removing all the dust - especially on all the fans)? Do you monitor your internal temps when you game - if so what are they when you game? Have you overclocked anything?

Whenever I record through my line in socket on my sound card there is always a high pitched squeeling noise in the background. Ive used programs to remove it but that also reduces the quality of the sound.
I thought it might be the cooling fans causing it. that is the only thing i can think of other than the card is no good.

I have been reading around about other threads I didn't quite get an answer... ok I just got a brand new vaio I have been having various problems with it just small trying to work it out... just about everything is fixed except when I run a program I get a high pitched noise... I don't mean just any program I mean programs such as counterstrike, or sometimes a virus scan, I know it's the fan speeding up to keep cool, but is it supposed to make a high pitched noise?

A:CPU fan high pitched

The smaller the fan you have, the higher its pitch.

And a high RPM 80mm fan is pretty high pitched.

The 40mm ones are just unbearable, as I found out today. But I can't remove it as its in my new 24port switch.

Try rolling back the sound driver from within Device Manager, joebeaven. If this is not an option, uninstall the sound driver and reboot. If the driver is not automatically reinstalled after reboot: "Drivers can be installed from the c:\applications\drivers folder and utilities from the c:\applications\tools folder." This info was taken from here.If your issue started recently, there may have been some form of corruption that has occurred.

Hi, I'm getting a ridiculously annoying high pitched buzzing coming from my speakers. The buzzing seems to mimic how hard the hard drive is working at the moment. I'm prety sure its not the speakers because i get the same sound if i plug headphones into the slot, but I'm pretty sure its not the built in sound card either because I still get the buzz (although not as loud but still annoyingly audible) from my other USB sound card.

I use an MSI K7N2g Nforce 2, and my harddrive is a 160gb hitachi (cant remember exact modeL)

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Sounds like the speakers may need to be shielded or you need a new set of speakers. Could be the EMF noise is originating from inside the PC as well if the sound card components are not shielded well enough.

A:High Pitched whir from rig

Hi ghostops117 and welcome to W7 Forums

The source of the noise is likely to be coming from a fan or from a floppy/optical/HDD drive. Unplug your machine (always do this when connecting/disconnecting internal cables) and disconnect all drives and fans (except for the CPU fan). If you have a graphics card and have also got on-board graphics, temporarily remove the card and use on-board instead. With everything disconnected, power back up. Don't worry about missing OS system prompts. If the noise is no longer present, reconnect one component at a time and retest. If the noise returns, verify by disconnecting the last component connected and test again.

Please let us know your results.

Hi there, hopefully someone can help. So far I have not been able to diagnose the problem, maybe someone out there can.

even at the lowest volumes, i have a high pitched whistle coming from my speakers. As you can probably imagine this is highly annoying.

so in my attempt to find out what could be the problem i have changed the following components.

Processor, Power supply, Sounds card, Speakers, Video Card, Memory, Operating system, Network card, Cable modem, DVD-RR, heyboard, mouse and Heatsink

so, apart from the HDD, I have changed everything inside this machine and its effectively another machine entirely and its still whistling.

Ive tried muting various inputs (and all of them) but the whistle remains. The only time it goes away is when i mute the speakers.

any ideas at all?

My T530 laptop has suddenly developed a high pitched whine after using it a few years. Using JGFFTViewer on my iPhone shows that there are peaks at 8khz and 15-17khz. The 15-17khz frequencies are most annoying as they are right at the edge of my hearing. Plugging in a mouse or keyboard into any of the USB 2.0 ports makes the sound louder. Moving both to USB 3.0 reduces the whine. Even without the mouse and keyboard the whine is still audible. I've recently upgraded my bios to 2.67. Could that have caused the issue? I've tried disabling power management in the bios with little to no difference. 

A:T530 High Pitched Whine

I found another app SpectrumView that does a better job and attached a screen shot: Notice the peak at 16khz that approaches the level of the office air conditioning. There is also a peak around 20khz but that is probably inaudible to the human ear.

I just purchased a Dell 2330 All-In-One, and the computer is emitting a high-pitched noise. It's extremely annoying. Does anybody know how to fix this problem? 

A:2330 All-in-One High-pitched noise.

Can you provide some additional information?  
1.  Does your system make the noise as soon as the system is turned on?  Is the system touching something that is making a vibration?
2.  Is a disc in the optical drive?  If so, does removing it make the sound go away?
3.  Can you describe where the sound is coming from?
4.  Do you recall what, if anything, you were doing when the sound began?  For example installing any new software (especially third-party software) or did you connect any new hardware to the 2330.
5.  Have you updated your software?  Have you restarted your system?
6.  Was the system purchased directly from Dell or someplace like Best Buy?  
If you're unable to isolate where the noise is coming from, I'd recommend taking the system to an authorized service provider.  If you're not comfortable tinkering with opening the system (who'd want to do that on a newly purchased computer?), take it to a service provider.  If it's newly purchased from Dell or authorized seller... you're covered under the hardware warranty.  Please provide more info if you can.  Without more information, no one can make an informed recommendation how to fix "noise."

I can not decide between these two cards. The Evga is just barely faster than the PNY and I know Evga's a really good company for video cards, but so is PNY, and right now I have a PNY 7800GT. I just don't know which one to buy. I've read some reviews of people saying that the Evga is loud and uses a lot of power. As of right now I'm leaning toward the PNY.

The question would be why? What do you want for it?  A particular game? Of concern is the i3-4170 processor.  If it's a game, go to game-debate and do the "Can I play It".The GTX 950  peaks at 90W. Your system would require a minimum of 350W. I would recommend a Corsair CX 500, provided that your processor is sufficient (which I really doubt).

I've recently encountered an odd problem with my computer I'm not sure what I've done to have this with high-pitched Crashing/Freezing sounds affect on my computer but here's what usually happens I leave my computer on at night for a little white noise when I sleep Next day I get on the net and after a few minutes of browsing my computer freezes up and my speakers have weird high-pitched sounds coming from them regardless if I have sound playing or not I tried the Reliability Performance moniter but it shows nothing except the Disruptive Shutdowns that I have manually done to get out of the freezing Then I thought it had been my computer overheating because when I built it the Graphics Card took up Crashing/Freezing with high-pitched sounds too much space and I had to relocate the secondary HDD to a fanless spot So I took off the cover of my computer and let a fan run on it all night My computer's starting temperature was C with the fan on and my computer on for a day it was C with the case on it's C I had then thought of my browsers being teh cause of the problem I mainly use Opera but have Firefox and IE as a back-up incase the webpages are browser specific My IE loads EXTREMELY slow so I tend to use Firefox if Opera fails I've crashed using both Firefox and Opera so I doubt it's a browser problem Sadly that wasn't my solution so here I am asking for help If there's any other information I can contribute please let me know

This had never happened to me before, but ever since I installed new drivers for my Soundblaster live! value card, my speakers give off a VERY high-pitched noise when I turn the volume up around halfway to the maximum volume. This never happened to me before. I have no idea how to fix this. Anyone?

My system components were perfectly stable under Vista without a reset for days or weeks at a time DxDiag txt attached for components But with Seven I'll leave my system on sometimes downloading and in the middle of the night we'll be woken up by what sounds like a smoke detector The PC has gone black no BSoD and something inside a Dell XPS is emitting a deafening high-pitched squeal I think it's on-board audio like a system beep crash pitched Bad during high squeal sleep, gone mad not a hardware component Anyway I have to force-power down then upon starting it doesn't Just a black screen no BIOS What usually fixes it is unplugging for a minute plugging back in starting then waiting for a LONG time until it sorts itself out amp comes back on What in the hell could be happening with this Thanks in advance Other facts This was a custom clean install Same thing happened with the betas on a different partition both and -bit Latest BIOS no custom settings nothing else unordinary

Hi Karl Sindre Baath Engelstad,
I am sorry about the frustration. I suggest that you flash BIOS from the following link:
Note: While flashing BIOS connect the Ac adapter and make sure the battery has minimum 15% charge as this needs uninterrupted power supply. Do not use the system till it restarts and comes up to the desktop.
In case issue persists even after flashing BIOS to the latest version, kindly send me a private message with the system service tag. Click on my name and click Start Conversation to send me a private message.

I've noticed a high pitched whining noise that sounds like it is coming from the power supply/GPU, both being less than a month old. The weird thing is, it only makes the noise when I am playing a game, for instance if I tab out, the noise will stop and if I tab in it will start again. I've mainly noticed this on a game called League of Legends which doesn't have high requirements anyways. It's just annoying me and I'd like to know if there is a fix. I'll list some components below, ask if anymore are required.

GPU: MSI 280X 3GB Gaming Edition (Twin Frozr IV)
PSU: 800W Storm Silent
Mobo: MSI B75MA-P45 MATX
CPU: i7 3770 3.4Gh/z (oced to 3.9)
RAM: 16GB Kingston HyperX Blu

A:High pitched noise only when playing games?

Welcome to SF. Could the noise be coming from the Twin Frozr?

Recently my laptop had a BSOD after which it restardted my computer, it then kept asking for me to insert a boot disc. I turned it off because I had things to do and really didn't want to worry about my computer, later when I turned it on windows started up with no problem at all. However my computer has started emitting a high pitched sound that is very annoying. This may be a hardware question but the sound only started after the BSOD error.

My computer is a Acer Asipre 5940G is that is any help.

Any help with this matter would be wonderful.

Hello To the one who offers help god bless I own an HP Pavillion DV ca laptop that is speakers out pitched humming noise High of just under one year old At about months of age I started noticing a high pitched irritating humming noise What sparked it I do not know It is a piercing high pitched toned that is very consistent and the same note every time It turns on when the laptop is operating at a higher level eg running a movie and an audio file at the same time It is possible it is related to the harddrive spinning High pitched humming noise out of speakers or the fan spinning However I do not believe the humming noise is a result High pitched humming noise out of speakers of the an inefficient fan or rattling of the casing because when I plug my laptop into my sound system the humming unfortunately comes out of those speakers too almost proving it s not a rattling and maybe even a software problem I sent it in times through staples of which went to HP none of which fixed the problem Staples said they couldn t hear it although upon start up I showed them the problem HP replaced the fan the first time and probably didn t test it and lastly HP replaced the bottom casing and the main board All to no avail I gave specific instructions on how to obtain the hum and I have gotten my laptop back months later in the same condition in which I sent it in Now it is Canada day weekend so contacting HP is out of the question and I think I will talk to some real people who can help me out Please offer any advice you can give I m beginning to wonder whether or not my laptop will be fixed before school begins again Scott Nguyen nbsp

This hum could be comming from the internal DC charging circuits. Possibly from a power conversion circuit board

I recently updated my Bios, and now I get this nasty high pitched whine from my PC speakers and Headphones.

However, it has some triggers.

If the computer isn't doing anything and I am not touching the mouse, the sound is barely audible. Yet, as soon as I move the mouse it comes in and out as the mouse moves.

Similarly, if I open an internet window of a program the whine gets persistent and will not go away until I close the web browser.

System spec's:
Asus P6T Deluxe V2
ATI Radeon 4870 X2 HD
Core i7 920
Windows Vista 64

I have had this computer for a while and no such problem until I updated the Bios in an effort to fix an issue with CoD:MW2 (Which I am beginning to regret buying)

I have an Asus P4S8X motherboard, Pentium 4 2.53 ghz, Enermax EG465P-VE(FM) 431W power, Lan-li Alum. case, & Kingston 512MB KVR333X64C25/512.

I put everything in with the first MB, applied power, and got a high pitched whine from the power supply. Did all kinds of diagnostics, sent the MB back.

New MB arrived, same thing. Called ASUS. (What's up with those support hours - and what happened to toll free???)

ASUS said to assemble outside of the case, so I did - stripped to CPU, FAN, PowerSupply & Video Card. Now, I apply power and.... NOTHING! The power supply fan doesn't even jiggle.

With the EnerMax, does anybody know how to ensure the unit is grounded properly? Could this be the trouble? The only think I have connected is the long cable to the MB & the 12V. Shouldn't this be enough?

I've tried reconnecting everything in the machine but that did not work. any help/suggestions on this would be greatly appreciated thanks.

my system specs are:
Intel Core 2 Quad, Q8200 @ 2.33ghz
