My computer makes a high pitched (whining) noise that sounds very much like ringing in the ears. This can't be normal can it? I already suffer from tinnitus so this is adding insult to injury. Can anyone tell me why this is happening? Please e-mail me directly at: drks4849@cs.com I have an
HP Pavillion Model: 8655C Thanks for any help. Debby

Hi,
Mine does the same thing. I'm not an expert, but I'm working up the courage to open it up and give it a good cleaning. I have a feeling that will help.

Hi

I had same problem last year...it turned out that my internal fan was shot to hell, when I got hte high whining sound, my computer would slow down to a crawl, then seem to fix itself for a while...I took the opportunity to trash it and get a new puter *smile*

I have had the same problem with my computer (and tinnitus too). If it is very high pitched it could be your monitor. A solution could be to degausse which sounds sort of like an electrical discharge snap when you do it. I find a degausse option on my monitor setup. Try some of the buttons on your monitor and you might find how to do it - or try your manual.

Also you can try to change the refresh rate of your monitor. I have Win 98. Go to Control Panel, Display, Settings. In mine, I then click a button called Advanced, and then go to the Adaptor tab. On there you can change the refresh rate - check what your manual says about doing it. If you set the rate higher it may kill the noise.

Good luck. !:o)
