Solved Computer makes whining noise after Bios update

January 23, 2012 at 16:09:25
Specs: Windows 7
After I updated the bios, the computer starts making whining noise during start up and keeps going. When it's loading something like a program or game, it stops and when it stops loading it starts again. It's not very loud but it's like high pitch spinning sound. Any ideas?
The computer is new and was very quite until then.

The BIOS (setup) is accessed at start up by tapping the keystroke displayed on your screen to enter the setup. Will be an F* key. Possibly F2.

Once in the BIOS screens read the screen help to learn how to change values. The PgUp/Dn, arrow keys, Tab, Exc, and Enter keys are the most commonly used.

Why did you update the BIOS?

What problem were you hoping to solve by updating the BIOS?

What are the specifications for this computer?

not really have reason but cuz the new bios says it improves system stability.XD I thought it may help with the static noise during playing a game. I did found several solution post. Seems like its caused by idle CPU. anyway, when I restart the computer the noise has somehow dissapeared.
It's asus motherboard. I5 2500k.GTX 560.

The noise is most likely the CPU cooling fan. After you updated the BIOS, did you run thru all the various BIOS settings? I'm guessing the fan noise has to do with a change in the cooling settings.

Do you have a disk in the CD drive?

When you updated the BIOS did you then immediately enter the BIOS screens (setup) to reset values as needed? You need to reset the date, time and possibly the boot order, at the very least. Be sure to save when exiting after making the changes.

Thanks for replies.
OtheHill, I didnt reset the date, not sure how... but I used Asus software to do the update.
riider, I didn't know I could check the new bios update, how do I do that?
Now the noise has come back and I'm trying to disable C1E overspeed protection. Some has suggested that it solved the CPU idle noise. But I can't find how to disable the C1E... anybody know how?

The other solution I saw from another post that worked immediately is disable CPU idle in advanced power option. But the person also said it will disable turbo.. so I'm trying the solution above which is disabling overspeed. Thanks!
