Question about Computers & Internet
Sounds. They are very high pitched when the computer powers up and decreases as it gets going; however, this seems to prevent the monitor from getting a signal so I end up manually restarting the system. I think these manual restarts with the power button are harming my system because it frequently will error. Says something is missing or whatever. That usually requirs still another manual restart. A friend said to get a big magnet and extract the static that way. Do you think that would work? Where would I get a magnet like that? Thanks.
Try reinstalling the audio drivers, go into device manager and uninstall the audio drivers, restart the PC, if the high pitched noise is still there before the computer re-installs the drivers, that will mean that there is feed back coming from somewhere, if there is no high pitched noise after this you know it was a bad sound driver.
Good luck and post back with the results please.
PS make sure the audio jack is pushed in properly too!!

Forget the magnet. Noises like the ones you describe are usually because of a few things: 1) the hard drive is going bad, 2) a fan going bad, or 3) the CD drive is making noise. I'd like to know what the error message reads. And yes, you are correct that restarting the computer with the power button will sooner or later harm your computer.
