    Hi everyone, should I be worried.

    My Intel Imac (20" 2.0 ghz) started making a humming sound about a week or so back. I bought the computer when they first came out (February?) and it had been perfect up until now, at first I thought it was the fan kicking in cuz it has been hot and the computer is not in an air conditioned room but it sounds like a psu humming sound to me.

    Is there a track record with the psu, I know there were issues with the G5 Imac's, should I call apple?

    I don't have an Intel iMac but have sent my iMac G5 back before for a replacement PSU. Try adjusting the screen brightness... if the buzzing increases/decreases with the brightness then it's most certainly the PSU making the sound.
