Default new noise!

i have a squeeling / Jingle sound that happens only when the car is first started after not being driven for a while, and a load is put on the electrical system. For example i start the car up, and everything is fine. no noise, but then if i lower two of the windows while having my foot on the brake the noise happens. or if i lower all four windows at once. I am currently running a set of GFB pulleys which replaces the alternator and crank pulley. I have not had any problems with them until this noise, i have had them on for about 4 months. I have added a 100 watt amp with two 8 inch subs in the trunk recently but this is a very low level setup and should not be causing me problems. This noise only happens when the car is first started after not being driven for a while, and like i said, its not constant, i only hear it when i put a load on the electrical system.

It could be the load you are putting on the alternator. I don't know if it would be the alternator though. I would first check the crank pulley and alternator pulley for any signs of belt wear. See if there are any black deposits building up in the grooves... the belt may be slightly slipping when you put that much load on it cold. If that looks ok, you might want to get the alternator looked at. I'd check the belts first though.
