Well, if this sound is coming from a power supply that is too weak, invest in a power supply with higher wattages. Or this sound may just be from a power supply that is just on the fritz.

You can't really help it from happening in the future, but what you can do, is buy a good make, which will obviously last you much longer, and be more stable than a really cheap one.

Look for one that has a good 12v supply to the rails, and is as stable as possible, and one that has at least 450-500watts I'd think.

Haha, but remember, if your PC never used that much, it wouldn't run that high

A 1 kilowatt supply wouldn't draw that at all times. It would draw the minimum needed to power your PC

What kind of screeching is it? Is it like a siren?
