installed RAM

So I just installed some ram in my old machine.

I went from one stick of 512 pc2700 to two 1gig pc3200

Everything works fine, but now the computer is making a high pitched, for a lack of a better word, Electrical buzz and its not any of the fans.

Any ideas??

Sounds like maybe a hard drive

To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kind of scary. I've wondered where this started and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus, and a clown killed my dad.

Thats what I've been thinking. Seems to get louder near there, but I really can't tell where the hell the noise is coming from.

Welp, I better start copying shit.

Haha, I knocked the system fan plug out. That was causing the buzzing.

I need to do the same thing to mine. You notice a difference with the additional RAM?

Yea, I ended up doing the same thing. Upgraded from 512 to 2Gb. Definitely helped. Next will be hard drive and video card upgrade.
