Silence Is Golden Ė How to Quiet Your PC (Part 1)

By Mohammad Yousef | July 2004


From the moment I press my PCís power button, I start to hear noises that seem to be coming out of a micro-factory. By now, most of you mustíve become so used to the noise that you donít notice thereís any sound at all, until turning off the PC. Does this mean you should put up with the noise and do nothing about it? Of course not! And in this article Iím going to tell you everything you need to know in order to hush up your PC.


Tighten the screws: the vibration of your PCís components could be causing the noise. In this case, all you need to do is unplug the PC, remove its cover and carefully tighten the screws of parts such as the power supply, motherboard, drivesÖ Beware not to over-tighten the screws either as this could damage some parts.


Move your case: if you have a case thatís vertically sitting on your desk, try to move the case to the floor. The quivering of your case might be bringing about a vibration with the surface of the desk. This method can help reduce your PCís noise especially if the roomís floor is carpeted. Another thing you could do is move the case far away and use extension cables to connect the monitor, mouse, keyboardÖ Although this method will totally eliminate the noise, itís an impractical solution because CD/DVD drives wonít be easy to access and the long wires might be a problem too.


The two methods Iíve just described donít cost any money (unless you want to buy the extension cables) so you can try and see the results. If these steps arenít enough, wait for my next part where Iíll list some devices that you can buy to mute your PC for good.
