Multiple motherboard failures


So I think you can conclude the that the first motherboard was actually ok, so don't trash it :)
Just to more certain about your PSU you might test it with a PSU tester, from $20 upwards from Amazon or ebay. This won't actually tell if everything's ok with your PSU, but if there's something wrong, it may show it (fail=something wrong, pass=there might be something wrong).
OK Brian, I have two ideas, which you may have already eliminated.
The first idea is that the problem is thermal; that maybe your processor was overheating. This idea is made less likely by the fact that the second m/b also shows a problem, but does not eliminate it entirely. The TIM on your CPU may have become old and developed voids in the first case, in the second, is it possible that you didn't do the best job in mounting the CPU heatsink ? You are obviously competent to remove to remove a motherboard, and so I expect you thoroughly cleaned your PC of dust, including the CPU heatsink and PSU where possible in static-sensible fashion. You should install some temperature monitoring software to check this hypothesis. Quasi-real time monitors include Speedfan (which also has a graphical display showing temps for the past 15 minutes, but it can be difficult to work out what the readings mean), and coretemp, but I'm sure there are others. Sandra will give you temperature but takes a couple of minutes to update, Speccy might give your CPU temp but it doesn't give mine (HP specs for this model do not give a unique CPU) . Look up your CPU's max. allowed temperature on the AMD website. You might also try CPUworld.
The second idea is that your PSU is overheating (some PSUs have thermal sensors which shutdown the PSU if it gets too hot), or that your PSU simply not upto the job. It depends what you are doing and what your system configuration is (including peripherals). According to http://www.anandtech.com/show/2630/6 the system under test with HD4350 graphics card, which is one of the options for your model, draws 165W at idle and 195W under load; this should be compared with your PSU (which if it's the original) is rated at 220W. Put a couple of extras in that, and take into account that the PSU isn't able to give as much power as when it was new, this scenario is looking like a possible candidate. You can eliminate this by trying a different, working higher power PSU if you can find one that fits - about 500W (true, not claimed or peak) capacity (to estimate the wattage the PSU you need for your system, see http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp (newegg and some PSU manufacturers also have them).

Of course it might be one of hundreds of other causes,,,

You might try posting your problem in the HP support forum, and hope that some HP guru picks it up.

How to fix loud whine from gigabyte ga-f2a55m motherboard


This particular main board doesn't have the video integrated into the mobo, so it's got a video card. Often the video card has a fan. The fan could be causing the noise. Have you tried briefly unplugging the processor fan to see if the noise stops?

Loud Continious Alarm noise coming from the Piezo buzzer


You are definitely looking at a hardware problem. Your son did not cause this problem.
On the problem computer, disconnect everything but the video, power supply, memory, CPU, mouse, and keyboard.
Now try to start it up. It should start and tell you there is no boot device. If the noise continues, remove the memory and try to start it.
I'm not sure if you have an integrated video card or not, but if it's an add-on, you could try to remove that to see if you can quiet the system.
Once the system starts, plug things back in one at a time to get it working.

I am getting problem with audiwhen ever i start a movie or game driver, i recieve a humming noise from my system


That humming noise may be coming from your graphics card fan. Try taking the case off your computer and giving it a gentle vacuum. Try also using "canned air", you can purchase cans of "air" at electronics and some department stores.

If the humming noise continues, it could be voltage fluctuation coming from the power supply. In which case, you would need to

Loud Whining Noise from Motherboard on Startup


Whining noise is something in motion or moving.Does the graphics card have a onboard fan?Is it clean and free moving.

How about the processor fan? clean,free from wires or anything hitting it.?

Disconnect hard drive and see if you get the sound.

Whining noise from pc tower


No transistor will make such noise... The problem is not in your M/B. The problem might be due to the fan that cools your processor. So clean dust around the fan thoroughly.
