    I have a Dell Dimension XPS R450 with Windows98SE and a 16mb STB nVidia TNT 3D AGP Graphics Card. Intermittently, over the past 6 months the computer has been humming/buzzing or "vrrr-ing" as my daughter describes it. Just recently, coincidentally or not the screen has been going black, but when I reboot it comes up fine. Sometimes when it goes black if I move the computer a bit it comes back. Sometimes if I move the computer a bit the sound goes away (or gets worse). Any ideas??

    Sorry I haven't responded for so long. I've been away and am going away again, but will check the connections as soon as I am able.
