    after i get to the windows loading screen my mac just throws out a consistent high pitched sound and shows a black screen, i can only get into bootcamp windows when i unplug the computer and start it up with the running windows normally option. is this a virus?

    p.s. macOSX works perfectly without problem.

    What type of mac?

    Are you sure the squeal is coming from the mac and not the monitor. Some monitors if you send them an unsupported resolution, they show a black screen and squeal like they're going to die.

    Probably not a virus.

    I've got an intel 24" imac, cant tell if its the mac or the monitor since they r the same thing lol, i dont think its the resolution tho, it has been fine for half a year until i installed assassin's creed II on it, but then it didnt happen right after i installed it, it happened after like a few days after.

    If you go into Safe Mode, does the noise continue?

    I have the same problem. It's only in Windows - both when I boot directly from the bootcamp partition and from VMware. Has anyone figured this out?
