it's either your Power Supply or Memory, Kingston doesn't have a very good track record with this board, and Aspire isn't any brand i'd depend on..

i'd pickup a quality PSU, like the Enermax I have in my sig.
and also get a stick of Crucial memory..

  • could well be be, especially given the buzzing etc., that you describe :-D)
    unplug them,
    reset bios :-

    How to clear the CMOS

    1) disconnect the power cable.

    2) push the power button to drain the capacitors

    3) Move the CMOS jumper to the clear position, from it's original 1-2 position to 2-3

    4) Wait a minute to be sure the CMOS has been cleared. Take your Time

    5) Return the CMOS jumper to it's original position 1-2

    6) Plug in power cable.

    7)restart computer

    8) enter bios and select load optimized Bios defaults - save & exit

    9) let pc reboot, if you have any settings you want changing do them now.
    like hard disk boot order etc.,

    10) hopefully youll boot
