over the past few days sticking is getting more and more frequent. that may be beacuse school term has finished and im on my pc more. however i've notice that before sticking what sounds like a hard disk or disk drive, make a boot sound (like when you first turn on ur pc your drives grumble) and then sticking happens.
Also there is a sound inside my pc which happens when the pc is sticking. It's a very quiet sound, I tried recording it to put it on here but background noise gets in the way and my phone aint sensitive enough. Every time the pc goes for one of it's 'sticky runs' the sound inside the pc accompanies it. So i set all the high powered fans to zilch and it seems to be coming from the CPU area, not the gfrx card or hard disk area (i've tried putting my finger on hard disks as sond comes out and could feel no real vibration). I though maybe its the CPU fan, but it moves to fast to tell. I tried resting my finger on the frame of it and can't feel no sudden vibrations nor when i blew compressed air on it could i hear any difference in the air stream. Hmmmmm? I will wait till it next goes sticky on me and experiment again to see if there is something i missed. Could it be the CPU? Does a CPU without a fan make a noise at all?
Also I've been checking the CPU and GPU temps when the sticking occours and they seem normal.
done the disk defrag (what i could as i don't have < 15% free) but the sticking still happens
my microphone is working in back port, haven't tried it in front port. FFront port audio out isn't working it seems I put my headphones in and i just get statically noises that contribute to what the pc is doing... if i scroll in a window i get some kind of muffled high pitch static etc.
what do we think it is?
