any thoughts on this one?
I can hear the whirring of my CPU fan through my speakers. I thought it may be something else in the car but the same sound is coming through the TV speakers when I plug the machine into my TV at home.
I have grounded the case in the car with a fairly decent sized cable, however I didnt think this would work considering the sound is also being heard at home through the TV speakers.
Any help on this one pls?
Try an external sound card.
Are you using DC-DC or an Inverter?
Either way try powering the fan from somewhere else. If it is connected to a MB header try a molex one instread or from the 12 volt line to the DC-DC/inverter.
D201GLY2, DC-DC power, 3.5 inch SATA
Yes, you should search... and Yes, It has been covered before!
Read the FAQ!
try another fan? maybe yours is faulty?
( does unplugging fan fix problem )
im running a DC-DC. ill try running the fan from another power source.
the fan isnt faulty, its a brand new one.
im looking to buy an external sound card, but dont have the money as yet
ive had many a faulty new fan - if the suppresion inside isn't correctly fitted it will cause you no end of problems...
I don't think it is your fan. One easy way to check is to put your finger on the center of the fan and alter the rotation speed slightly by breaking it with your finger. Does the pitch of the sound change when you do that? If it does, then it is your fan. If, not then you have other things going on.
Oh yeah: Be carefull. Count your fingers before and after the test
