    Unhappy Whats up with my gpu/graphic card ? Explode or somthing?

    Hi!

    So like a month ago a weird not that loud noise came from the Pc and i looked, and it came from the gpu, i didn't bother do anything because it was gone the next morning..

    But now like a week or 2 ago it came back and now even louder! Seriously, for every day that has Went, the sound is louder and louder.

    The noise itself comes when I start the Pc and then it slowly starts to stop after 40 seconds, after that it's all quiet,

    I sincerly hope it's not a warning that it's gonna explode



    Pc specs,

    Acer
    Aspire M3900
    Pentium(r) Dual-core CPU E5800, 3.20 GHZ
    6 Gb Ram
    Gtx 420 if im not misstaking..

    Yes i know its a very bad and old computer (like 2010 maybe.. :P), but it has Always worked for me and i have never had any troubles playing games with it!


    Video to sound:


    Bai!

    No, your GPU is not going to explode

    I think that a cable is touching the fan, which makes that strange-known noise. You can disassemble the case of your GPU to have a look in it, this is 5-10min work so it's not a big thing


    But yeah, it doesnt affect your GPU in any way.



    Or it could be the ball bearing of the fan... That would be not good
    enjoy please

    Sounds like coil whining to me. Does it get louder under higher loads?

    It came when i started up the pc and it slowly started to go away, after 1 minute its all gone, but i took out the gpu and saw that an Cable was lyin pretty Close to the fan, which i assume was the case. And the sound is gone now

    Maybe should start look for a newer pc anyway.. wouldnt hurt
