    PC making strange buzzing noise

    When I have time in the weekend, I'll try disconnecting the fans and seeing what happens

    There's actually a strong probability that its a fan, thanks for pointing that out. This case has 2 fans at the front with barely any airflow.

    PC making strange buzzing noise

    Hello forum, My PC is making this strange buzzing noise about every 15 seconds. The buzzing noise has a duration of about 20 seconds. Placing my hand on the PC case will dampen the noise quite a bit. I am experiencing No issues with the computer itself, everything is working fine. Is this normal? Hard drive about to die? should I be worried? This video is a recording I made of the sound so you can hear it for yourself: I don't remember when the PC first started doing this, that gives some idea of how long this has been going on. Asking now since I have the funds to replace parts if need be. PC specs: CPU: i7-7700 GPU: RX580 saphire nitro+ RAM: 16GB 2133 DDR4 Mobo: ASUS H110M-A PSU: Zalman Goldrock 550W Storage: 1x kingston 240GB SSD 1x seagate 1TB (ST1000DM003-1SB102) 1x seagate 2TB (ST2000DM006-2DM164)

    AMD Radeon settings not launching

    Ok, I did that. Problem still not solved. Still has the exact same behavior as before. Launch the program, it briefly shows up in task manager then disappears.

    AMD Radeon settings not launching

    Hello forum, Whenever I try to launch the AMD Radeon settings program on my computer, the program immediately crashes. This means I'm unable to access Graphics settings and features like ReLive. The last time I know for certain that the program was working was back in late April. My PC has an RX580. The card itself works fine, and can still play games and stuff. It's just the program that doesn't work. I've tried the following fixes (none have worked): -Uninstall + reinstall AMD Radeon settings (using the uninstall tool, which does still work) -Go back to earlier version of the program The video below shows the program crashing in action. It will appear very briefly in task manager before disappearing: Also of note: now when I launch my GPU overclocking software, I get this error message Any help with this would be appreciated

    Any speakers worth buying for >$70?

    I ended up getting the Logitech z333 for free using a customer loyalty program, problem solved. Can't really complain about quality since I got them for free.

    The shipping here is $50, yikes

    Thanks for the help, it's worth noting that amazon shipping to NZ murders the price so I'll need to look if I can find these from a different retailer

    I'm more just looking for something that will make some noise rather than good audio, already got my headphones for that. I'd mainly be using them for when it gets too hot here or if I'm watching videos or something at a distance.

    Any speakers worth buying for >$70?

    Hey forum :D// I'm looking for some speakers to get so I don't always have to wear my headphones for when it gets too hot or I wanna listen further than my headphone cable can reach. I'm not really an audiophile so they don't have to be particularly good, but it's also possible that its just junk at this price range so hence me asking.

    Saving HDD from dead PC

    Thank you for the advice, since I'm not familiar with migrating data from an old drive to a new drive I'm going to recommend to my friend that he take the HDD to a professional for getting the data back. I'll help him choose a new PC to move on to. When doing tests like seeing if I could enter BIOS I disconnected the HDD so provided it wasn't damaged beforehand it should be OK. In the days leading up to the PC's failure, it was experiencing image degradation similar to this. We did try multiple monitors and saw the same effect on both.

    Saving HDD from dead PC

    I don't have an alternate PC to look at the drive - I think I'm going to point this to a professional and consult my friend on getting a replacement PC.

    I tried disconnecting the HDD and turning it on and still saw heavy screen corruption, I think the Video card is damaged
