Plants vs zombies battle for Neighborville

★★★★ Novice

Whenever I open the game my pc makes a soft whistling/whining sound. It last for a few seconds then stops. I don’t know if I should be worried about this because the noise only happens when I start up the game. I would like to know what’s going on, and if I need to post my pc specs as well. Thanks in advance.

Hey @Zhire123 it sounds like coil whine which is not something that you can really do anything about.

 

Coil whine is a noise creating by an electronic component vibrating as power runs through it.

That's an odd one @Zhire123. Could it be the fans kicking in or going a little faster?

 

It could be coil whine which is quite common. It is possible to record the sound when you hear it?

Hi @EA_Darko ! Thanks for the reply. I've managed to record the sound, but it kept saying the file is unsupported so I posted it on Youtube instead. Sorry for the bad quality audio. Thanks again!

Hi again @EA_Darko ! Does this harm my computer in anyway? Should I be worried about it? Thanks!

If it is coil whine then it's nothing to really be worried about @Zhire123. It won't really have an adverse effect on your PC and won't cause any issues in relation to the performance or longevity of your system.
