There is a noise when the computer starts up that comes from the cpu. It's not the fan because I have switched out fans and the noise is still there. The noise will stop for a moment when i move the cpu around. The computer will not boot all the way up either. I have tried switching out cpu as well. It's an AMD Athlon 900 MHZ Socket A(462) CPU Thunderbird.

Thanks ahead,

ok if you've tried more than one cpu and it still does it then it sounds to me that there is something wrong with the socket itself or more importantly the motherboard. I'm not sure exactly what would cause something like that especially from a mobo but never know...I'd suggest taking it to a tech shop so they can run tests on your mobo.

Or replace the MoBo itself...

The last time i had a very similar problem the motherboard has a short in it somewhere. The only option was to replce the MB. I have seen this once before in a motherboard that the memory had gone bad on it. Replacing the memory on that one fixed it.
