    Do you have the 4 pin connector connected to the card? I know that if you don't it will scream like the dickens.

    Hi

    Thats exactly whats happening. Thats an alarm to let you know..
    You need to give the card a molex power plug, same used on your ide hdd's.

    ya it doesnt say it in the manual(cheap nvidia bastards use one manual for all of there types of video card, i mean how muck does it really cost to......)but you need to plug in the four prong power cord.
