Sounds to me like you need to have some hardware looked at. Have you tried opening your case and dusting it with a can of compressed air ? If there is a lot of dust there, then it won't allow heat ( and there is a lot of it ) to dissipate. So you want to keep that area relatively clean.

Also, if your powersupply is going bad, it is time to replace. If you are smelling a strong odor, something is burning. You want to figure that out.

My Desktop PC assembled is emitting quite a bit of noise. Whenever an application or a download is started, the cpu usage shoots up and the noise / vibration also increases. What can I do?


I would think the SMPS fan, sounds like it's not keeping your computer cool. CPU fans usually never cause much trouble, but maybe you could look into getting quieter fans.

How to get rid of screen interference


Have you ever had a wired interference on your screen:
alonmln.jpg
NOW IT ENDS!
There are couples of easy steps that will solve your problem!
1. Look out for any Electromagnetic field emitting devices next to your
monitor and move themaway(like phones, big magnets, speakers...)
2.Make sure that the monitor's plug, is well plugged and notmoving around.
3. On some systems, it is possible to reset therefresh rate of the monitor to line frequency (60 Hz) without serious sideeffects. More often, though, this will result in a sacrifice of resolution, andin almost all cases, the jitter will have been traded for flicker (the refreshrate has been increased by the monitor manufacturer to avoid flicker - the eyecan detect a refresh of the image at 60 Hz). Further, if the backgroundmagnetic fields are strong enough, even setting the refresh rate to 60 Hz willnot remove all of the jitter.
4. If all above doesn't work, and you can't stand the interference simply buyand LCD screen and never have these kind of trouble again.

A sound appears to be coming from my computer but i hear nothing.how can i fix it?


Since you reference "appears", you might be referencing seeing your volume display showing sound emitting. That would probably be either your microphone is turned on and it's picking up noises, sounds, ambiance.

Or you might have a device plugged in or connected via Bluetooth that is emitting audio.

Or you might be hearing the hard drive spin occasionally while other times it is idle. In addition, your power supply fan will turn on when you start up your computer. Some fans will automatically turn off if the power supply is cool enough.

When I awaken my computer by moving the mouse the LCD light on the monitor keeps blinking off and on for over a minute before the screen comes on.


Delays are common for systems coming out of sleep mode and it isn't only the system box that must wake up but the monitor also samples its input to determine if a signal is present before it comes out of a power saving mode.
If the monitor is a CRT unit, the jug needs some time for the heater to warm up and emit electrons again, if an LCD, the fluorescent backlight and its circuit can have delays too.

Admitted, a minute seems a bit long but may just be the combined characteristics of your system and monitor.
It still beats booting up from scratch.

Machine emits continuous high pitched bleep and power light flashes blue/red


If working OK, probably means that the temperature alarm goes off because is getting hot the PC. I suggest to check why is that happening. All fans working OK? is the CMOS temperature alarm set too low? check your motherboard instructions booklet- It will tell you what the beeps mean probably in the last pages. Good luck
