Machine Making Noises

Hi,

I recently updgraded my machine and installed a new HD. The new HD is an 80 GB WD drive set as primary. I placed my old 40 GB drive as slave.

The machine is now making a low humming or buzzing sound. Its not continuous but a pulsating tone.

I am wondering what is causing this? I have a floppy drive, 2 CD-Rom Drives (one is a burner) and 2 HD off a 250 WATT power supply.

Could the power supply be making the noise? I diconnected the old drive and the noise stopped, but the drive never made the noise before.

Any ideas?

Yeah it could be. Can you tell where sound is coming from?

also it could be a fan on the way out
or something as simple as a spare power lead or similar vibrating on the case

It could be just the drive vibrating against the case. Put a few more screws in it.

Hi,
Check..
•      Your system casing proper pack.
•      System internal power cable or data cable are touching your processor fan?
•      Make confident that your system power supply fan is working fine, some thing not touch or lose in power supply.
•      What is system position, Desktop or tower caging, is proper system position?
•      Check your mother board back body, your mother board is touch system body?
