Guest TheBand Posted June 28, 2012 Share Posted June 28, 2012 Hello everyone, I wanted to post on here and pick some brains about what I had encountered today. I went to start my comp up and during start up I got my Bios beep, my mobo boot screen, and then when it began to boot my drives and periphs, my fans began to hum at a lower frequency and the screen went black. Fans would hum higher frequency and then lower freq as if they were hunting. Sounds almost like a power issue to me. When I went to hard reset the computer she powered up for a second like she should normally (all I can say is the sound of my fans coming on) however this time no BIOS beep, blank screen and the fans immediately dropped rpm (lower freq sound). I heard two audible clicks, not loud but still clicks almost like a line contactor or an electrical switch that was trying to close but could not. I turned the comp off and flipped the power switch on the PSU and began looking into how far into my warranty I was to send the p.o.s. back. Just for snitz'n'giggles before I unplugged everything and hooked my oooooooooollllllllllllllldddddddd comp up I decided to give it one last parting shot. Turned everything back on and she booted fine. Weird, but I'm still venturing a guess that something is lurking just under the surface. I recently had the thing repaired and parts replaced about six months ago for a similar issue. They replaced and upgraded my PSU, replaced my MOBO and Gfx Card. From what I had done research with online it sounded exactly like a PSU problem which fried my mobo and card. But seeing as it was still under warranty I didn't bust out my multi-meter and start checking voltages. I can't say that this is the same thing here, but that is the most recent work done on it/history. I appreciate any comments or questions that you may have for me and I thank you all for your consideration and time replying and helping me out.
