Installed new ram and loud buzzing?

Installed 2 new 1gb modules into Dell dimension 4400. Loads and runs great, sees 2 gb of ram installed but now there is a loud buzzing sound coming from computer case. Is this permanent, will it harm my computer, what do I do?

Re: Installed new ram and loud buzzing?



RAM memory shouldn't be causing any type of "buzzing" sound.  I'd recommend making sure that you do not have any wires hitting a fan.  If this does not resolve the issue, for testing, try taking the new memory out to see if the sound goes away.  If it does, try the new memory alone in the system.
