I bought a secondhand RX570 4gb a month ago and ever since I installed it into my computer it started randomly making the same noise as how it starts booting up (fans spin faster, a beep noise) it doesnt do anything to the computer - things dont hang or shut down and after it makes that bootup noise it goes back to normal. It also doesnt happen while gaming. Whats going on? Thanks ahead

Specs:
Intel i38100f
GA H 310M H Mother Board
16GB 2400 DDR4 RAM
120GB SSD
320gb HDD
Rx 570 4GB Video Card
550 Watts True Rated PSU
4 generic cheap rgb fans
and its plugged into a 650 Backup-UPS

that seems a fairly common error with GPU drivers, both AMD & Nvidia.

have you tried reinstalling drivers?

My gpu was turning off randomly 3 years ago and cause ended up being something completely different. So do you have any old USB devices or speakers that might be cause as USB & PCIe are on same controller chip. A dying mouse or keybaord can trip the gpu drivers. Just a thought since you not actually getting a BSOD.

Oh I actually do have a keyboard that dies every now and then, windows gives me notifications of it being not recognized and then recognized. And I've updated my drivers, but I havent tried reinstalling yet.

That keyboard could be tripping the gpu over, might think about getting a new keyboard. Or just borrow another one and see if problem continues.

I spent 4 months trying to work out why my GPU kept turning off and its not like we didn't try,. I eventually got a shop to test PC, it worked fine, get it home, plug in mouse and it started playing up again. replace mouse and it never happened again. Only in hindsight did I remember I heard the usb disconnect noise when it first happened. I was sort of distracted as my screen had turned off.

Only 2 problems I had with that PC were caused by peripherals, my speakers and my mouse, both of which were old. Now oldest part of my PC set up are my speakers again.
