Does the noise occur at startup or is it continuous? Have you tried installing the correct driver?
If your using XP here is a driver for it:
Hello, here's my problem.
I've had an onboard graphic card for the past few years, yes it suck, but didn't had the money to upgrade it.
During a sale I've come across a ATI RAGE 128 GL PCI still in-box (without driver cd).
To my best surprises, my PC detect the card, on my control panel -> systems -> material-> There's my onboard card, and the new one there's a huge yellow " ! " and there's a message "This peripherique (sp?) doesn't work as intended (Code 10). After some search, I saw I would have to turn off my onboard, and put it on PCI. After going in Bios turning off onboard then putting it on PCI there's a really weird noise and even if I connect my screen on the card input still nothing.
I will REALLY appreciate ANY help. Well, except info like "lawl ur pc is teh sux get a new one" I don't have thousands nor hundreds of dollars to put on this PC. I want to enjoy my game, without having to pay 4000$ for the latest bomb. Thanks.
