  1. I recently got my net back on. I did all suggested driver updates. After installing a game and turning off the comp, when I went to turn it on all I got was a high pitched noise from inside the comp along with no use of my monitor mouse or keyboard. I took the video cards out cleaned them and put them back in, Comp ran fine till I put the game back on the comp. I am now in the same position of high pitched noise along with no keyboard, mouse or monitor.
    I have a
    Dell 630i quad core
    GeForce 8800GT x 2
    OS- Windows XP

    I have removed each of the video cards and tried running the comp, but still not working same high pitched noise.

    Please help!! I want my comp back in working order

    Personally, I would call Dell on this one. Who knows, maybe you're still under warranty and you'll get a free motherboard replacement. :D

    Is the noise really high pitched or does it sound more like a jet engine taking off?

    it's a high pitched noise. One long beep.
    and the mobo was replaced a year ago :/

    the fans start on the comp and video cards that is it.
