Don't know if something like this was posted already, thought it was good info to share on speeding up Windows XP boot times;

Expert Strange Sound

09 August 2006 - 06:39 AM

Hi All,

I noticed this past Monday a strange sound from my PC when I turn it on, I appear as thought the Fans speed up 3 times then a click sound, it repeats this pattern 3 times before it finally goes to POST and boots to windows, it sound more like “whoosh, whoosh, whoosh, click” and repeat itself 3 times.

I thought at first it was my DVD drive going out since I noticed the click sound from the drive so I completely disconnected it and the problem is still there but now I don’t here the click only the whoosh sound.

By process of elimination removed all HD’s one by one, still the same behavior. Finally removed all internal cards and installed a spare video card and still getting the same whoosh sound.

Then removed all fans except CPU I used the OEM fan that came with the CPU still the same behavior with a single fan (CPU). I then gave it a CMOS clear for about 2 hours first that didn’t help, then another 14 hour CMOS clear, but still the same. Also tried another PSU (Antec TP 550).

Any thoughts on what may be happing here?

Unable to read XFX 7950 Temps

27 July 2006 - 06:26 AM

Hi All,

I’m running the 7950 and wanted to monitor the temps just to make sure the case is circulating properly, but for some reason it doesn’t show in the control panel, I’m using Driver 91.33 and also have coolbits installed using the A1 option. I also installed MBM5 per instructions using nVidia driver 7.22.

Any suggestion would be appreciated.
