Power supply fan starts and stops, why?

The fan in the power supply on my PC has been briefly cutting out, about once every 30 seconds. This makes the sound kind of annoying. Do I need to replace the entire power supply or can I just replace the fan? [more inside]

Two computer problems

So I've had this problem since I built my computer a few months ago, it is completely sporadic and seemingly random. Sometimes my computer won't freeze for days, other times shortly after start up. When it freezes everything stops, the keyboard and mouse are unresponsive (no Ctrl-alt-del etc.) and if sound is playing there is a sort of "glitch" then silence. I don't know yet whether this is hardware related or software related. The other problem (separate then the freezing) I've been having on startup: I can't use it normally at all, because when I start a program like firefox or anything it else it freezes and I have to hard restart every time, or I have to wait 30 minutes and then firefox or other programs will start. Or the other issue arises where no programs will start and I'm forced to hard restart again. I can only run it working in safemode with networking, which prevents me from doing what I built it for, gaming and videos etc. Running chkdsk /r fixes this problem, but it sometimes returns. This is a secondary problem unrelated to the first. [more inside]

I need to be reminded that my current apartment situation is finite.

Renter's Remorse Filter. I moved into a new place and I cannot stand it (upstairs neighbor sounds like an elephant, asinine condo regulations, horrible parking, etc.) Is there a countdown timer utility (Mac OS 10.6) or email service that I can use to count down the weeks I have left to live here? Ideally, I would like to receive an email at the end of every week, saying I have X number of weeks left.

How do I stop a hardware beep in my desktop PC?

My IT Help Desk is stumped - can you help me? My computer is making what I can only describe as a hardware beep that I can't turn off. Muting Windows and disabling all system sounds doesn't work. Yet the beep only happens when I do certain things with the software - at first, it was only when trying to save a document into my virtual system in Word, but recently it's every time an email arrives in Outlook, which is just awful. This didn't used to happen, but once, many months ago, I accidentally pressed a random combination of keys and it started. I have no idea how to turn it off - and neither do the IT people. System details inside. [more inside]

What is best approach for measuring cloud network latency?

I would like to know what is the best approach for measuring a cloud provider's network latency and jitter e.g. Amazon EC2. While a single ping on the command line can achieve a round trip latency snapshot for that one moment, I was looking for something more comprehensive and thorough. Are there any software tools out there that are particularly recommended and hopefully easy to use for measuring at intervals, network latency & jitter, preferably in Windows? Is round trip latency or end to end latency the best metric to consider? Ping provides roundtrip although if the packet came back the same route it came, then end to end could be found by dividing by 2. Latency and jitter increases in proportion to server load. How could I ramp up server load to let's say a specified percentage? Many thanks!

Standing-height TV tray?

We have a computer hooked up to our TV and I would love to have something like a TV tray, but taller, so I could stand up behind it with the wireless mouse and keyboard and compute for short periods of time and then put it away. Know of any tallish tv trays or folding tall card tables or even something on wheels that would allow me to do something like this? Ikea is unfortunately not really an option, and I'm looking for something pretty cheap.

Best monitor for photography under Linux?

I am currently (still) using a CRT monitor and would like to move to an LCD panel. My primary usage is for photography and web browsing. I have spent the last three weeks or so researching monitors and have found out that (1) I will need to buy an IPS panel, (2) having looked at monitor sizes in the store I really would prefer a 27 or 30 inch monitor and (2) I have resigned myself to the fact that I should expect to pay at least $1,000 for a good monitor, possibly closer to $2,000. What monitor would you recommend? Is it really worth upgrading to a really high-end monitor ($2,000+)? More questions and details inside. [more inside]
