I wonder if anyone can help?
I have an AMD1700XP with cooler master fan. Plextor CDRW, 16 Speed DVD drive, Gforce2 MX400 (with fan) & 2 HDD. When starting the system from cold there is excessive noise, like vibration for 30 seconds or so then it stops!!!! At firsrt I thought it was the power supply so took the plunge and brought new 400 Watt ATX supply. Still the same. I have disconnected both CD drives, secondary HDD and CPU cooler fan (briefly) but still the noise persists when cold. My friend seems to think that my ATX case may be slightly distorted and this may be the problem. I am pleased that the CPU fan is OK, can be worrying & also CPU running OK at about 45C, will shut down at 60C anyway. If anybody has any suggestions or come across a problem such as this before I would love to here from you!
