Which two components in a system might give out a whining sound?

Two components in a PC that might make a whining sound are power supply and disk drive. Noise from a power supply usually means it is time to replace the power supply, however, it might just mean that the fan is dirty and the dust needs to be blown out with some compressed air. If your hard drive is making any unusual noises it is time to make an immediate backup of your data and replace the drive.

What could cause the transmission on a 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan to make a shuddering sound while the engine is idling but it stops when accelerating?

This vehicle is notorious for a "whining" noise. The slower you drive, the louder it is. At first I thought our power-steering pump was going, or the transmission was whining. Two mechanics told me it's normal. Just a quirk with Dodge/Chrysler products. I had that whining noise and it was the alternator making the noise through the radio. even when the radio is off. Just a thought.
