14 April 2013 - 10:04 PMRequest: some way to shut up the music on the maintenance screen, the next time you do it.
On my computer, you can set the headphone jack to be independent of the speakers (some weird feature of VIA onboard sound OEM drivers). In most Windows 7 computers you take advantage of exclusive mode which prevents anything else from interfering with your tunes. You could redirect a to different sound card by setting a default and have a program you're using the other device. I say foobar2000 with WASPI plug-in and the ability to switch output devices definitely rocks. Give it a try.
08 April 2013 - 05:31 AMI've been looking for the Dreamcast VGA box for a while, and after discovering that Pier Solar's coming to DC, I decided to go looking again. While this one isn't exactly what I'm looking for, it look like it would work. What do you guys think? Link
Now, on the same site, I found this. What is it? It is just a piece of junk metal or would it be worth it to purchase it alongside the VGA cable?
If I'm totally on the wrong track, can you guys help me out?
I look for the VGA box instead. Also those are VGA connectors in the second link that you probally have to solder in to something. And you're paying to the bank of China with that cable you want to buy.

02 February 2013 - 10:10 AMPut in another power supply and see if the buzzing subsides. You can try vaccuming the vents of the power supply.
Disconnect a hard drive by disconnecting a power rail cable and find the failing one (one at a time), you know if the buzzing subsides, or it maybe vibrating on the case.
Check the video card fans, do as TmEE sugguested, if it stops, replace the fan. Could be a dusty heatsink, clean if neccessory.
Try a different video card.
Check underneath the CPU fan, vaccum the heatsink or a can of compressed air if neccessory.
02 February 2013 - 01:23 AMBad fan on the GPU (graphics card I bet) or bad PSU fan.
Let's see, computer makes loud buzzing for five minutes? Would sound like a bad fan in the power supply unit. If thats not its the probally a bad Graphics card fan as you said the system crashes during a game.
Other issues to look at, bad or dying hard drive (they get louder as they age, its usually a warning sign that platters may cease spinning up in the future). If you have a SATA II hard drive than the motherboard will start it up when it's ready to, to reduce strain on the power supply, otherwise it starts right way when pressing the power button.
You ruled out atleast two other fans, the case fan, and the CPU fan.
One other issue is your power supply rated for the load you're giving it? That can cause problems. Such as the fan spinning so fast it buzzes and it giving out during a game, something to check if you made a recent upgrade.
