Question I accidentally my TF2 cartridge.

Basically, TF2's been occasionally making weird screeches and low growls (like from the HHH or Monoculus) when I'm playing, like if you took an N64 cart out a little bit while the game was running.

I'm not sure if this is just factored in because of my crappy 2006 mac, or the new updates, but it's not been picture perfect on my end, that's not to say the game is unplayable..
Is this happening to anyone else? Is this because a RAM chip is loose or something?

Most likely a fan. Maybe one of your hard drives is going out. That's really the only "loud" parts of a computer.

No, but I'll try that.

I had that issue a while back for seemingly no reason. I never did find a fix for it sadly. But one new computer and a fresh install later.... it was fixed. (I assume that isn't what you wanted to hear)

Unplug Game Genie and blow into the cartridge. Put the cartridge back into your NES and plug the Game Genie back.

You sure it's not haunted? Run into any magicians lately while job hunting?

I'm pretty sure it's coming from my speaker, but I'll check later.

Oh. Check your audio cables then. Maybe drivers.

I don't have any cables connected, and I don't have any external drivers installed. Everything seems normal. I'm verifying as I type, so only time will tell. It's stuck on the 100% now, so I'll just wait.

if its not your speakers then a fan could be dying and it only makes the sound cause when you play a game it starts spinning faster

what do you mean you dont have audio cables connect, if you didnt then there would be no noise like music.

and by drivers he doesnt mean a hard drive or HDD. drivers are basically things that tell you PC what to do with your hardware, graphics drivers tell you PC how to use your graphics card and same with your sound card, just look up driver for (insert sound card here) on (insert OS here) thats if they are broken, just play some other games and music and if they make noises then it could be drivers or your card just breaking, i had a laptop that when too much sound came through it would make a horrible noise but it was just a crappy card that couldnt handle much

you have to pull out the cartridge at the intro at the right time otherwise you end up with a backpack filled with ocarinas.
