I am troubleshooting my home PC. It is failing, but I can't find source of the problem.
- mobo: Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H (rev. 2.0)
- CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 Black Edition 1090T, 3616 MHz (18 x 201)
- GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460
- HDD: WDC WD5000AAKS-00UU3A0
- PSU: Thermaltake Evo Blue 550W
- RAM: Kingston 9905471-001.A00LF (2GB x 2)
The motherboard manual has no information about 1 loud and non-stopping buzzing noise (it sounds more like buzz then beep). It seems like an uncommon situation. Sound is coming from the motherboard speaker.
It makes this buzzing noise and everything just freezes during this noise. This noise may or may not randomly stop. If it stops then everything unfreezes and Windows continues to work normally.
Checked HDDs, replaced one because of too many bad sectors, but the second one seems fine. It has some bad sectors, but just 0.2%.
Tested some components with HeavyLoad and Furmark. Everything seems fine under a heavy resource load.
I can't simulate this loud buzzing noise behavior, it just happens randomly.
Sometimes the computer won't turn on after rebooting after that sound, POST is silent. I have to wait a bit before trying to turn it on again, then POST produces 1 short sound indicating all is fine and loads BIOS and the OS.
What should I try to figure out what's going on?
