There may be several reasons for this like software conflict or may be a hardware issue.
Kindly let me know when desktop produces weird sound, I mean does this happen when you open any application or something..

But in the meanwhile, you can try the following :-

Step 1 - If you are technically sound then try to open computer tower,open sound card from the slot and put back in.

Restart your machine and check results,Kindly post your results..

Yamaha DGX 640 - keys make odd sound

I don't think that is correctable; if it is under warranty, have it repaired or replaced. The yamaha keyboards are great when they work partly because they use sampled sounds; getting extra sounds indicates a bad chip.

Kenmore washer model 110.22432100. Just started making loud clunking noise in spin cycle, all of a sudden. Drum is just moving ahead an inch at a time, not spinning as it should. Noise is very loud. ...

Sounds like it could possibly be the transmission. You may want to have a technician come out to check it. (I know the whole point of fixya is so you don't need a tech but a problem like this is hard to diagnose without a video with sound or being at your place) sorry I couldn't help more.

Odd creaking sound from front end

It can be a C-V joint or other suspension part. The reason for the brief sound is the slack in the joint until it jams into position. Jams being the keyword here. There are bearings and rollers in the joint. When they disentergrate, there is space. The bearing rollers pile up and JAM together so the C-V shaft turns. It can only work like this for a limited time, then come apart.

Another possibility is a strut joint or balljoint. The weight shifts under acceleration and the part rocks in the loose fitting. It seizes into a driveable position, but only for a limited number of times under it lets loose.

As you stated, "Like it is pulling itself apart" is pretty accurate for what is happening in the C-V joint.

Dell Inspiron 531 (desktop) won?t turn on/boot

You've either got a bad motherboard or a bad processor (I'd lean to the motherboard being bad). I would honestly take this into a computer repair shop and have them check both.

Rumbling sound

It sounds to me like you have a bearing going out in one of the rear wheels. Get it fixed soon. It's pretty pricey but it will cause a lot more problems if left unchecked.
