squeaking noise dg45id

Recently I bought a DG45ID with c2q. However, I've been experiencing the problem since the day one. I can hear a strange high pitched squeaking noise periodically. I've even noticed that this noise starts when the pc boots up completely. I've checked by plugging off all the fans, changed the hdd and the smps. I've turned on my pc with bare essentials, (500gb seagate barracuda, 2gb ram,) even then the noise didnt go. There is no power issue as I my pc is on a ups and properly grounded. I think the problem is either with the motherboard or with the processor C2Q.

Any one pls help.

    The problem could be related to the driver installed, you may need to check a different version of the driver and see if the issue persists either the driver from the Installation DVD/CD or a previous one and latest one on the web site.

    Additionally you may follow the indications on the following site:

    Furthermore, this can be affected by the memory installed; I would recommend you to verify that the memory installed complies with all the requirements listed on the web link below:

    -          Specially make sure that the memory is rated for 1.8 volts

    Hi there,

    I have been in that situation a few times.  Since you have verified that none of the fans are causing the noise, I believe you will find the noise is coming from the power supply.  It usually means that it is going out when it starts doing that.  If you put your ear next to the back of the power supply, you should be able to hear the noise quite well.  I suggest going with an Antec.  I have had some Antec power supplies die before but they were under the 3 year warranty and the company replaced them without any problems.

     

    Good luck.

    Another possibility is you are experiencing the "inductance noise" issue on this MoBo.  This is a known potential issue with this MoBo.  The BIOS version 0113 addresses and fixed this problem.  I have not had this problem.  As suggested above, attempt to locate the source by opening your case and listen carefully to find it.  This may not be easy but well worth trying.  Intel's BIOS update procedure where you download a new BIOS to your HDD and run the .exe file is easy and worked great for me.  There are more posts regarding this issue in the Support Community, you may want to check them out.  Good luck!

    im experiencing this "inductance noise" also. I made sure it was not coming from other parts inside the cpu by using the microphone and turning it up real loud with the boost. You can clearly hear that it comes from the board. I have the AA 310 version and updated the bios to version 0131. Still have the same problem. I was able to eliminate this problem before by grounding  but now that I added another ram, it wont go away anymore.

     

    Thanks,

    So what is your current memory configuration and what RAM sticks are you using - is it all Intel approved and according to the manual? Have you tried unplugging the PC from the mains to isolate the power before moving the sticks around into other memory slots - especially if not all the sticks are identical? It sounds like you're describing a constant noise, which in my experience with the inductance noise issue is not typical of the issue with some DG45ID boards - the noise comes and goes depending on facturs such as CPU load and temperature.

    I just solved mine today by  accessing IDT audio settings.

     

    Go to recording tab and select either REAR MIC or MICROPHONE settings. toggle ON the LISTEN TO THIS DEVICE, PLAYBACK THROUGH. This eliminated the noise in my board. I hope this will solve the problem on your board too.

    Sorry I wasnt able to reply to your message. I havent came back to this discussion for a while. I use the kingston value rams. 2pcs of 1GB and 1pc of 2GB. Ive tried a lot of things already to make the problem go away. Just today I was thinking of having the mobo replaced at the store. As I was getting ready, I plugged in a separate microphone to the rear jack in order to check the source of the noise (this is what I had in mind to demonstrate to the store) and made the settings for the mic. I accidentaly stumbled on the solution. Please see my other post today. (Rico_PH).

     

    Thanks,

    Hi,

     

    I also have here in our company an Intel DG451D motherboard. I have updated the latest BIOS and it still makes this horrible noise, I have even made an AWR and had the board replaced still doesnt help.

    Any other ideas?

    Take it to a computer shop and let an expert hear it to make sure it's the same very high pitched noise referred to here. In my case a replacement board (of AA revision ending in 310) made the world of difference and I hardly ever hear the noise now. The rest of what you (or the shop) should check (eg memory compatibility etc) is in the rest of the thread. In my case no mic is plugged in anywhere at all.
