FIRSTLY if you have warrenty use it if not use the following steps .Open up your computer DONT TOUCH ANYTHING INSIDE , discharge yourself by touching an unpainted surface then proceed, turn on the pc Sound can vary one way that you can determine the source of noise is stoppping the fans whilst it is on one by one to determine the source.you can remove the cd /dvd from any optical drive (dvd cd drive) .And 2nd you could tell if the hard drive is crashing if you hear a reoccuring clicking sound or a whirr of which the hard drive is crashing.Depending on your manufacturer of hard drive download their hard drive diagnostics program and check for bad sectors if there is an increasing number of it occuring then your hard drive would definately be in trouble.Any sign of this vibration can be caused by vibration so try to keep all the screws tightened .

You have gone on at length describing your problem, however you have failed to indicate what the Operating System is? I assume it is XP, and prey it is not Vista or Win 7? Or worse a 64bit version of those? Anyway, I sincerely doubt that the fact that the PC is "Dual Core" has anything at all to do with anything? Most likely it has to do with the transport driver layers and the Widcomm Bluetooth drivers almost without a doubt. Bluetooth whilst a great platform, is indeed fraught with problems.. It doesn't even work all that reliably on Cell Phones and Headsets, that it was designed for. Packet loss and corruption invariably is due to outside interference and, depending on Operating System, bad USB handling and interfacing, what with USB & Bluetooth together we always have problems. One way is too mitigate problems is to increase the Output Power of the Transmitter and buffer and error check at the receive end. Again I would try "Other" Bluetooth "Stack" such as say, Bluesoleil or Toshiba's one. This project indeed sounds like a challenge. I also think that one shouldn't be to fixated on things like Dual Core's & P4's and the like, I have never had an issue, such as you describe, with processors, the problem I am sure is elsewhere, use Occams razor.. and do not get side tracked. Good luck, If you were in NZ I would get hands on with you.. could be entertaining challenge to say the least. Good Luck
dell has a good deal on a studio desktop pc Core 2 duo quad core but even without the monitor its 550, then you have to add a good video card, integrated cards are garbage and so is intel, so the good ones are anout $100-300 intel and amd
to keep cost down you could also go with a core 2 duo (dual core) but stay away from celerons they **** for gaming check staples/office max/best buy/circuit city or dell dot com for good deals
some dell studio's are slim desktops and unless you get a video card from dell they can be hard to find(near impossible)
