  1. Does it sound like coil whine? Can you locate where in the case the sound is coming from?
  2. Alright, well the Corsair PSU is dead. Take that out of the equation all together. Test the system with one drive connected at a time and see if any individual drive is causing issues.
  3. Is the sound coming from your speakers?
  4. System idle is your available CPU resource. 10-20% usage while idle is very high it should sit between 0-2% when nothing's happening
  5. It could be. It's just way more likely to be software.
  6. Issue still remains after windows re-install? Did you install he latest drivers from AMD's website? Or did you let windows install it?
  7. Do you happen to have a multimeter?
  8. I'm stumped. I'd reinstall windows and be done with it.
  9. Make sure there is no debris under the motherboard. Like MojangYang said it sound like it's grounded. Contact the the chassis will do this.
  10. Honestly scrap it. Take anything worth salvaging. Like perhaps GPU? (Although probably not) sell the RAM online. Destroy the HDD's they're IDE so no use to you anyway. This way no data can be stolen. If you are convinced you want to pump money into it get a second hand motherboard and CPU. At that point you might as well buy a new low end CPU motherboard and a 4GB ram kit. That PSU probably won't support a modern system so you'll want to replace that, you'll need new drives a GPU if you want to game. Then you don't want to put all that modern hardware in an old case so a new one of them as well. Then you have a new system. If you get second hand hardware and revive it. Don't bother with Windows put like Linux Mint on it. It'll run better than windows 98 and has much more current features.
  11. Download Process explorer. See what it says is hogging resources. Have a look in task manager at disk usage. Reboot into safemode and check again. If it's still happening it's likely a hardware issue. If it's not like @Skiiwee29 said you probably have a virus or perhaps a bug somewhere. You definitely want to reinstall windows on a clean format. Don't just try to repair.
  12. I agree with @Anghammarad. Sounds like a GPU problem. Download DDU. Reboot into safemode. This can be done by opening the run box win+r typing in msconfig, going to the boot tab, check the safemode box click ok and reboot. Run DDU in safemode. Reboot into windows, download the latest drivers from nVidia and install them.
  13. Holy cow. I didn't realise how old the system is. That has a 20pin power connector and no auxiliary CPU connectors. Honestly it's probably not worth trying to fix. Buying parts for that system will cost you an arm and a leg. To get the cooler off you release the black plastic arm under the fan (you do have to apply quite a lot of pressure) once that's released you take the tabs off the clips either side of the CPU socket. My guess is the power supply or the CPU has had it.
