Speakers make buzzing/hiss/grinding noise and internet drops until sound stops

Question: Speakers make buzzing/hiss/grinding noise and internet drops until sound stops

So this problem seemed to come out of nowhere, I have no idea why it started. Basically, when I use my internet, eg: opening link, loading video or downloading randomly my speakers make a grinding noise and until the noise stops (can be 1-10 seconds) my internet drops (the internet icon on the bottom right shows it is still connected but nothing loads until the noise stops. Even then, the noise can drop in and out like 10 times in a minute and is constantly messing up the internet.

If someone could help, it would be much appreciated, my speakers are Logitech (doubt that makes much difference as I doubt the problem is linked to them and my LAN card is some Ralink thing, nothing special.

Here is a low volume recording of the noise, turn up your speakers to hear it well.

I'm using a laptop and when I turn on the speakers and turn up the volume, I hear buzzing, the higher I turn up the volume, the higher the buzzing sound goes. Here are the technical specifications of the speakers:
Model no.: SL-8020/8021
110 Watts P.M.P.O., 2W RMS
Power supply: ~ 230V
Controls:
On/Off switch
Volume control
Frequency range: 110 Hz-13 kHz
Dimensions (WxDxH): 84x84x160mm
Loudspeakers: 2x2,5", magnetically shielded
Impedance: 4 0hm
Audio input: 3.5 mm stereo jack

What do I have to do to get rid of the buzzing? Also, my audio driver is SoundMAX HD Audio 0. So could the audio driver be the problem, should I get a different audio driver?

Answer:desktop stereo speakers make buzzing noise

Electrical interference. Move it away from the laptop, or any other electrical appliances you have. Move it around till the buzzing subsides/stops

My speakers work fine when plugged into my gf computer, but when plugged into mine, I get nothing but buzzing. No music or anything else. I have not made any changes to my computer. I tried rebooting the computer didn't help. Not sure what to do.
 

Answer:No sound other than buzzing noise from my PC speakers

Try other speakers or headphones. The audio jack might be broken.

Hello, I was wondering if anyone else had experience with an issue I am having.  I just got my new Y510p laptop and a fan has been making a constant buzzing noise.  It sounds like the fan is loose in the housing or ill-fitting and grinding aginst its housing.  I have a y510p with 2 x NVIDIA GeForce GT 750m graphics cards in SLI configuration, with 8gb ram.  The noise is coming from the fan on the left hand side of the computer.  The fan (and noise) starts as soon as the laptop is powered on.  From experience with previous laptops, I believe the CPU is located on the left side and this is a problem with the CPU fan. I consider this a serious issue, and will be returning the laptop in a few days if the problem presists.  I hope that the fan may "break itself in" over the course of time and the issue resolve itself. Best Regards,Erik

Answer:Lenovo y510p Fan noise : grinding / buzzing

I have recently brought 12 Pcs of IdeaPad Y510p to sold out in Nepal. One of my customer told me he is ireeted while working at night in Peace place due to the Buzz sound which produce in Laptop. After this i checked in my rest of the Laptop and hear the same problems, what is the problem, is this Factory Dafult or some thing.

While playing some games like Left 4 Dead 2, Fallout New Vegas and Age of Empires III Asian Dynasties, the computer crashes and I have to press and hold the power button for it to turn off. It happens frequently in AoE III Asian Dynasties and never happens in Team Fortress 2 for example.

The screen goes black and the monitor light starts blinking, and the speakers make a really annoying loud buzzing sound.

I've tried everything, various video card drivers, disconnected all USB devices, clean OS installs with no extra software on the background...

The PC is ~3 years old.
Windows 7 SP1 64 bits
I've had BSODs before but not since the last format.

I found this thread using Google, looks similar.

Answer:Monitor goes black and speakers make loud buzzing sound

Your symptoms reek of hardware failure. My initial suspicion is your video card. Though let's run through some testing.

First thing's first: some initial troubleshooting. Check inside your PC for any dust or slow/stopped fans. Ensure that proper airflow is taking place (cold outside air in, hot inside air out). While you're inside, go ahead and re-seat your video card, as well as your memory sticks, and reconnect your drives' power and data cables (both drive and motherboard ends). Check things after all of this, and see if the issue has been resolved or has been very noticeably reduced. If not resolved, continue onward.

Before the testing, we'll want a couple HWinfo logs from ya. Set it to Sensors only at startup, then have it log two instances: one for idle, and one for high load (gaming, etc.). Make sure each log records a decent amount of time (~15 minutes). So we can get some good solid averages and discover trends going on.

Once that's done, on to the hardware diagnostic tests:

GPU: MemtestG80/CL - If your video card supports either of the tests, run twice.
RAM: Memtest86+ - Run 7+ passes.
CPU: Prime95 - Torture Test, Large FFTs, 9+ hours.
Disk: Seatools - All basic tests. No Fix all or advanced ones.

Note that these tests (besides MemtestG80/CL) are available on the UBCD. It's also preferable you run them on there as it offers a light, reliable environment to run them on. Note that Prime95 is called Mersenne Prime Test in the UB... Read more

Sony Vaio laptop (DxDiag attached, hoping that gives necessary info on hardware and software)

Fairly new laptop, has been in for repairs TWICE due to bluescreens. The SSD and ram has been replaced.

This time the error occurs when watching videos/playing games (it does tend to happen at random, but when gaming it doesnt need more than 20-30 mins before crashing)

The error is the same every time: The screen goes black (but is still lit), while the speakers makes a constant buzzing sound that doesnt stop until I turn off the computer by holding the power button.

I have been without the computer for over 9 weeks for repairs, and this time I want to hear with you guys if there is anything that can be done to avoid that.

Thanks in advance. Please inform me what I need to do in order to help you guys help me!

Answer:Unknown crash (Screen goes black, speakers make buzzing sound)

DxDiag won't provide us anything on what we need to analyze this crash. You'll want to run a jcgriff report as instructed here.

I want to note that the reason why they replaced the SSD and RAM is because those are the only parts they're willing to replace. If this thing is new as you say, then my initial diagnosis is that we got a mobo or graphics issue (most likely mobo). Either case means replacing the whole laptop.

Send us the generated report, and we should be able to work from there.

Hi there! I've recently acquired a brand new EDGE 13, 0197-6GG (Athlon Neo X2 L325 version). I was very disappointed that in Romania you don't supply the black matte version - only the glossy, but that's another story. It is a great machine, and Windows 7 Pro 64bit runs great on it. However I am disappointed to find that there is some really annoying EMI interference (noise) - on the audio channel and some occasional distortion. It runs even when muted, on speakers and headphones.I am an Electronical Engineer and IT Specialist and I am guessing that this might seem as a design issue, which makes it impossible to apply for warranty, right? I would like to mention that my old 3000 C100 notebook has one of the clearest sound channels (absolutely NO noise or interference of any kind) I have ever seen, and that is an entry level laptop. I am curious to find out if anyone else has the same problems - just mute your volume and put some headphones and try to listen for random hissing and noise. I am waiting for some feedback. Thank you,Ovidiu Cotta

Answer:Edge 13 - AMD - Hiss / Distortion and EMI Noise on Speakers and Headphones

I have this problem too. Exactly as described. I talked to the Danish Lenovo support that told me to get an adapter for the earphones which I haven't done yet. Actually I'm not really sure what kind of adapter he meant, but I guess the problem is a design problem as you suggest but more precisely has to do with my earphones jack being "three-ring" type and the input jack on the EDGE is supposed to be four-ring since it supports both mic and phones in one. I tried connecting my Nokia earphone/mic handsfree (cable) set and surely the noise was gone. The sound anemic and low though which might have something to do with the fact that I used my own earphones instead of Nokia's. Hope this makes sense (I'm not an audioengineer ;-) (my main reason for calling support was because of keyboard flex which was taken care of immediately by sending me a new keyboard (which has no flex)).  I hate that this is my first post here. I actually wanted it to be one stating how satisfied I am with the EDGE. The keyboard is simply phenomenal and win7 is smooth and fast.  (EDGE 13 AMD L625)

I  am getting a weird sound coming out of this laptop's speakers (equipped with Beats Audio).  When I turn up the volume all the way, I get a hissing noise which quickly downgrades to a warbling sound that resembles chirping crickets.  Lowering the volume lowers the noise, turning the volume up brings back the hiss then chirping.  It's driving me crazy.  Help please!

I have a Dell DImension Desktop (not a big Dell fan, but it was free, it's my only PC). Anyway, lately at startup I've been hearing a terrible grinding noise from insode the computer, it usually quiets down a bit later after startup, but a grinding/buzzing noise is always there to some degree.

I immediatly figured it was a HD problem, that the HD was grinding. I went to staples and picked up a new 80GB maxtor HD and installed it (removed the old one entirely). I re-installed windows at that point but the grinding noise IS STILL THERE! The noise is basically identical so I am starting to think that it was neve a HD issue, if it wasn't what else could possibly be grinding like that!? Maybe a fan somewhere? I'm not completely computer illiterate, but I obviously have no clue what's going on, please help me!

i have just changed all the pins. the latest driver of the sound card is installed. latest BIOS is installed. but the situtation is still the same. so pls get me the actual solution
 

Answer:Hiss Sound from Speakers

You will usually find it is a defective speaker or a defecdtive sound card. Drivers usually don't come into play here.
Appears your sound card has been overdriven, and an output chip has gone bad. You will perhaps need to repalce that sound card. But the problem could also be in the speakers, so try another pair to see if they reproduce the same hiss. Disconnect the Woofer. Woofers are often a cause... those by Koss, Altec Lansing, and Boston all produce a hiss when they are burned out. I haven't seen any bad Gravity speakers.
Usually with sound troubleshooting, it is helpful to be able to remove speaker components, and try different output pieces. But sound cards are fragile and burn out easily when overdriven. Even a cheap sound card can give you a quick idea of where the problem lies.

december 2016, at the middle of december, i purchased a new acer e5-475g the kaby lake version, after using it for some couple days, the fan making some kind of grinding sound so i'm turning off my laptop then booting it up again, it gone. after several weeks of usage(almost 1 month approximately) it started making the same noise, but sometimes the sound of it is loud, sometimes not. it usually happened after i left my laptop on cold room at the table overnight, but that sound doesnt show up everyday, only several times. i don't know what's going on with my laptop, many people say it could cause/caused by overheat, but i don't think mine caused any of that or by any of that, because i usually use a cooling pad, which is cooler master notepal x3. i already checked some things such as checking the temperature, i also tried to feel the airflow, but i couldn't really feel the airflow, because almost the whole part is occupied by the copper heatsink, i tried to push the body at fan part a bit, and the fan noise louder if i do that, but after waiting several minutes usually the sound gone. can anyone please help me? or share your experience if this problem have ever occur to you? thanks acer E5-475G-53IQspec:-i5-7200u 2.5ghz turbo to 3.1ghz-4gb 2133mhz ddr4 ram-nvidia geforce 940mx-1tb toshiba hard drive

Answer:acer E14 E5-475G fan make weird grinding noise

Sounds like in your description that the fan rubbing chassis. To keep cost down they used plastic which flexes a bit too much for my liking but normally functional. I'd open it up and check the fan for alignment and screws snug.  Easy to do really.  Remove bottom screws, slide out DVD tray, 3 tiny screws under that. Remove ram cover, unplug speaker wire (near edge white connector) then start with video port side work bottom loose (snap locks so small flat screw driver to loosen) toward the DVD side.  Once bottom off you see everything including fan.  Examine close, remove and reseat it.  This whole procedure everyone basically needs to handle or have someone that can. Maintenance- depending on use and environment you need to blow out the dust (canned air) and redo thermal paste on CPU/GPU and lube fan.  The fan brushless but does require upkeep now and then but this soon sounds like blades rubbing chassis. If you suspect fan itself pull sticker and under can access center spin bearing/bushing and few drops of lite oil (3in1/sewing machine oil) to free it up. Let us know how it goes.

First post, hope I'm doing this right.Hi guys, about 3 weeks ago I purchased a Lenovo ideapad 110. It's a great laptop, however, about a couple weeks ago, the laptop started making a loud grinding/buzzing sound when playing audio. The sound only lasts for second, but it's quite jarring, to the point where I have to take out my earphones and take a break from what ever I was watching/listening to. It also happens without earphones, so those aren't the problem. YouTube is when it mainly occurs, however other sites with audio have it too. I've tried playing with the audio settings and updating the drivers, it worked for a few days, but the sound has returned. My previous laptop, a hp did this too, but never this frequently, so what exactly is this? I'm not very tech-savvy, so I have no idea.Here are the spec if it helps.15.6-inch (1366 x 768 pixels) TN displayIntel Pentium N3710 Processor (1.60GHz 1600MHz 2MB) with Intel HD Graphics4GB RAM (up to 8GB), 1TB HDDWindows 10 HomeBuilt-in DVD Recordable DriveStereo Speakers with Dolby Audio, 3.5 mm Combo Audio JackUSB 3.0, USB 2.0, HDMI, RJ45 Ethernet and 4-in-1 Card Reader (SD, SDHC, SDXC, MMC)Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi 802.11 acDimensions: 378 x 265 x 22.9; Weight: 2.2 kg24WH batteryThanks.

I have an XP machine. When I play music through the speakers from the sound card I here a high pitched buzzing sound.

Also when I plug my headphones into the sound card I still here the buzzing. Can anyone help?

Answer:Buzzing noise through speakers

If your system is Enabled for Digital Playback you may still have the audio lead from one of your drives connected to onboard sound or sound card.Also check out the Volume Control panel (double click on the Volume icon) that there is no unnecessary Muting (or Enabling!), plus the Sounds and Audio Devices configuration from Control Panel.

I have a straight connection from the sound card (green headphone jack) on my computer to the phono (red & white) input on an amplifier. The cable is stereo to phono (1.5m long). When I have the volume low on the pc and turn up the volume on the amp I get a really bad buzzing sound on my speakers, espically the center speaker (I've a 5.1 setup). When I play music on the pc this noise is very bad. I get this noise both from the onboard and PCI sound cards. This is no conflict of sound cards on the pc as this occurred before I instlled the new sound card. I also tried a different stereo to phono cable but the noise is still there. Any suggestions on the cause of this noise or how to eliminate it?

I recently purchased a new laptop, an HP Pavilion dv7-4083cl. It was everything I needed for under a grand and so far I am very satisfied with it.

One of the features I was excited about was the new 'Beats Audio' sound system that came standard with it. Unfortunately, it has given me the most problems.

Now I do not know if it is the sound card or rattling within the laptop, but every time I play video or song (or really any type of sound) at higher volume levels, the right side of my laptop buzzes, or rattles. It seems like it is only buzzing when higher notes are being played through the speaker. To sum it all up, it is extremely annoying and I can not enjoy videos or music.

It sometimes helps when I grab the right side of my laptop, which is the reason why I think there is some rattling going on and it may be a hardware issue, but it is still an issue I want to address.

I am taking all the steps I can before I have to eventually get on the phone with HP so ANY help will be greatly appreciated!

Answer:A high pitched buzzing noise on my PC speakers

Hello Shannon
My experience with noise in the speakers is that it usually is coming in through the speaker's power adapter, although defective audio cables may also cause the problem.

I would suggest... (in this order)
1. Swap your surge protector for a known good, and see if that resolves the noise.
2. Swap the audio cable (the one that attaches between your speakers and the audio out port on the computer).
3. Swap speakers for known good.
If none of these solve your issue, then it could be a bad sound card in your computer.

I performed a system repair and a scan; scan showed no corrupt files.

One night I come home, and I hear a consistent noise coming from my speakers, which are built into my monitor. I was too tired to deal with it so I turned off my PC and went to bed. Next morning, same thing. After a restart, the problem seemed to magically disappear. Now, after another night of my monitor being turned off, problem re-appears. I've tried rebooting the PC and monitor, plugging it in and out, nothing helps. I can still hear all sounds perfectly, they're just accompanied by the noise.
Also, just muting my system doesn't make the sound go away, so it's not a software thing I suppose...
And if my PC is turned off, or I switch to, for example, TV or HDMI input, the noise isn't there.
Any ideas?

Answer:Speakers making high-pitched buzzing noise.

Do you have a different set of speakers, or even headphones that you could try in the same port that the speakers making the noise are plugged into? I would check this first. Next, do you have a wireless router, or cordless phone sitting close to your speakers? If so, try moving those further away.

I put my headphones in the jack today and heard a weird background noise. When I removed them, the computer speakers were making a loud buzzing noise as well.  The buzzing noise comes and goes and disappears if I mute the computer's volume.  I cannot hear any audio on my computer now (no music, videos, noise at start up/shut down, etc.). I have tried updating the sound drivers and restarting the computer several times, but to no avail.  I have also tried to get sound with and without external speakers attached, with and without headphones in, etc. and I can only occassionally get the loud buzzing noise which is coming directly from both of the speaker vents on the bottom of the computer.  Thoughts on a solution?

Hi,
 
I've been having the above problem for a while now. It occurs randomly and unpredictably, having just now had my first crash in over a week. The PC becomes unresponsive and requires a hard reset via the power switch. Temperatures are fine - The CPU rarely exceeds 45°C, and the GPU appears to plateau at around 70°C. There are never any bluescreens, and as far as I can see, the only errors in event viewer are standard kernel power errors.
 
I have tried: 
 
-Fresh install of video drivers
 
-Fresh install of sound drivers
 
-BIOS update
 
-Chipset update
 
-Removal of third party sound drivers entirely
 
-Several passes of memtest86
 
-Several hours of furmark stress testing
 
Any help would be amazing. Thanks in advance for your time.

Hello all,

I've been having this problem for a long time now (2 years) and no matter what I do I can't get rid of it.

My PC will freeze and make very loud buzzing noises a few times a day,even when left idle in the middle of the night it will sometimes wake me up with the buzzing sounds coming out of my headphones.

I'm clueless at this point as for what to do,I replaced my Motherboard,my network adatper, I disabled my sound card,played around with the BIOS settings and nothing works.

There is one way which seems to consistently recreate the freeze & buzzing sound and thats only when I run low graphic games and let me explain:

I can play heavy 3D games with demanding graphics and the PC wont freeze (Actually don't think it ever froze while I was playing a 3D game) however It will freeze after less than 10 minutes if I play a low demanding game like Stardew Valley,League of legends or even when the PC is just Idle or while listening to music on youtube.

I ran Memtest86 and Prime95 and didn't find any errors and the event viewer errors seem to just say its Error 41 which is an unexpected shutdown.

I would really be greatful if someone can help me solve this annoying problem for once and for all,I've been living with it for so long,it makes me paranoid when I'm gonna hear it while listening to music (the sound gets you jumped every time..)

Hello,

The hard drive has started to make a buzzing noise on my A30, I guess this is not good news, i.e. it is Kaput?

I downloaded HDDLife which tells me the hard drive is all ok, but I don't feel very confident.

I have backed up everything, and am thinking about a replacement hard drive.

So I have two Q's:

Should I get a new hard drive?

& if so, then would one of these be compatible?
http://www.tfc-computer.de/index.php?details=737&suche=___

Thanks

Answer:Satellite A30: HDD started to make a buzzing noise

Hi

These are not great news.
3 month ago my HDD went dead. It was a simply head crash.
A day before it happened I have noticed strange sound coming from notebook inside.
But I was not sure if it?s a HDD sound.
So day after I wanted to start the notebook but? the BIOS has not recognized the HDD.

So I have replaced a hdd and all was ok.
So take care. Maybe the same will happen to you.

I don?t know if the 80GB will work but as far as I can remember some A30 was delivered with a 40GB HDD.
SO maybe you will be able to use a 60GB but I?m not sure about the 80GB. You have to test it, you know?

PS. The notebook should support the enhanced IDE (ATA-5) interface

Hi all

I recently built a new gaming rig but recycled an old Antec truepower quattro 1000w that I had in my 5 year old gaming rig as it still worked fine.

I was making the wires in my new system all neat and the next day when I flicked the PSU ON/OFF button ON at the rear of the PC it started making the crackling/buzzing noise that you get when you don't fully plug in a kettle plug cable into a psu except this time mine was fully plugged in.

The noise stops after a about 5 seconds but it seems to be happening whenever the PSU is turned off and then turned back on again.The PC Runs fine and there are no odd noises when its on.

Is this a sign that I should get a new PSU before something bad happens to the other parts of my system?

System Spec

I7-3770K
GSkill 16GB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 4gb ddr5
Corsair h100i
one Samsung SSD 250GB
3 normal 7200 rpm Sata HDD's
1 dvdrw drive
5 120mm fans
1 large 220mm fan with LEDs

Thanks in advance
 

Answer:PSU makes crakeling/buzzing noise when I flick the rear switch on but then stops

Welcome to Major Geeks!

Given the money you have invested in the other parts, I would err on the side of caution and replace the PSU. If the noise is an impending short circuit, serious damage could occur.

Trying to source the problem on a second hand laptop someone passed on, shame really as externally it looks clean and no marks. I no the HDD is failed but thats all.Problem is when you power it on using the supplied power apapter I can hear a faint crackling from within. It has a little green light on it and the laptop just powers on for say 3 - 5 seonds & no fans spin then it powers off.I have tried powering on with no Battery, No HDD, No DVD Wtr being fitted one by one and no change.I have also replaced the Motherboard CMOS Battery.The only things left are the power Adpater, Memory damaged when my friend had a go at removing back panels or motherboard failure.Its a Fujitsu Amillo Laptop.Re the power adapter buzzing/crackling answer would be a start.

Answer:Do Laptop Power Adapters Make any buzzing noise?

Some adaptors are noisier than others, in my experience (which amounts to about half a dozen!)I assume the battery is dead, as you mention the problem is one of the laptop not powering up with or without the battery. I had a Fujitsu battery fail after 18months but it ran on the adaptor OK without the battery fitted.One of my 2 Dell adapters makes a buzzing sound when it is on, but it is not noticeable if it is on the floor when I am working.A longshot - try connecting a monitor and see if you get anywhere. One of my Dells only powers up if an external monitor is connected. It did exactly the same as yours - HD started, lights flashed on then nothing, it works perfectly with a monitor plugged in. I think it must be something to do with the screen. It is limiting though, considering a laptop is supposed to be portable. Good luck with the fault finding.

I have a brand new Inspiron 7560 and I've been having a lot of issues with the audio and video sort of lagging and making a buzzing noise and stuttering, it happens every 15 minutes when watching something or listening to music.
I had this issue and then got the laptop replaced because I had no idea what the issue was. I don't like returning items but it was brand new and cost a lot so I was worried there was a bigger problem. It happened with the first one from the get go but with the replacement it started happening after a few days of use. It started off with static noises every so often roughly within the first say 30 minutes of turning the laptop on, and then it started doing the buzzing and lagging every 15 minutes like the first one I had. I've also noticed a static noise whenever putting the charger in or out.
I had a look on the internet on how to fix it before I got the first one replaced but none of it worked, I've had another look now and came across a thread but it was from 2011 so thought the fix may be outdated now. I thought my best bet was to just come straight here to see if anyone could help.
I'm really hoping this is a known issue and it's easy to remedy as I really don't want to return this one after already returning one. I'm sorry I haven't got much information about the issue, but I hope someone will be able to help me. If you need anything else I will try my best to answer any questions.
Thanks very much

Answer:Audio and Video make buzzing noise/stuttering every 15 minutes

Different folks have problems for different reasons.  I would suggest you open at least Task Manager to watch the performance on the system to see if anything pops up every 15 minutes which is using resources.
Keep an eye on Processor speed and utilization.  Also the drive usage.  I can't think of anything which goes on a 15 minute time interval, but possibly some setting you have set up such as checking for mail..
Using Resource Monitor would be even better,  but the software/browser you are using could also be involved.

 I just bought Lenovo IP510IKB earlier this week, and I really like it, but I think something is wrong with the speakers, when I play music or any kind of audio there is some kind of distortion or vibration at certain frequencies, I don't know how to describe it, it's like there is something vibrating inside the laptop. I tried installing lenovo Harman drivers but the problem is still there, I also tried Windows generic drivers and other softwares like FxSound, but nothing helped, something that I also tried is muting the left speaker and the right speaker, at first I thought muting the left speaker fixed the problem but after a while I noticed the same distortion but not as much. I tried living with this annoying problem as it's not always there, but it really appear when listening to piano, but I can't live with it anymore it's driving me crazy and I can't find any related topics about this problem in the IP510IKB. I live in Egypt and I bought this laptop from souq.com (something like amazon.com) about a week ago, and I don't think I will be able to return it, is it even something that the warranty covers?

My build:

Intel i5 3570K
MSI Z77A-G45
8GB Corsair Vengeance
Corsair SSD Force 3 120gb
ATI 7850

So the problem is when I move windows around in Windows 7 or I'm in specific screens in certain games, there are buzzing sounds coming from the mobo's onboard sound (any of the inputs cause it except line out). The sound from dragging windows around on the desktop is different from the sound in-game. No clue what any of this could mean but for some of you this must be a pretty dead give away I hope.

edit: Turning the mouse polling rate from 1000 to 125 gets rid of the problems on the desktop, but it doesn't affect the in-game buzzing at all.

This issue has been going on for a week since I built this machine. The first GFX card I had was a Sapphire 7850 OC edition which was faulty (display driver kept crashing) so I got it refunded and got a Diamond 7850 instead. So I think we can probably be fairly certain that it's not the GFX card at least, although I have the new 7850 OC'd, taking it off doesn't change the buzzing sound.

Thank you for the help.

Hi, well the buzzing sound can be a problem with the hardware, update the drivers for audio from hp.com and connect external speakers or headphones and check if the buzz persists on the external speakers too , if there is no buzzing sound in the external speaker , then its the hardware problem , call hp for repair , if there is a buzzing sound on the external speaker too , then it must be a software problem , run a recovery to check  steps to run a recovery power down the note book as soon as you hit the power button , keep tapping the esc key on the top left corner until a new window opens up(the start up menu ) choose the option f11 and choose the option trouble shooting, and run the option called recoveryNote: recovery  will cause all the data to be lost on your computer and makes the computer to go back to day 1 condition , try and back up the data before you run the recovery

Hello,Since yesterday the desktop speakers (conveniently plugged into the back of the pc) have been making a very annoying buzzing sound. I'm not sure what caused it. On Sunday, the sound was fine. On Tuesday, it was non-existent.Now I've done all the things that I think I should do: I uninstalled and installed the soundcard (built onto the motherboard), I installed new drivers for the aforesaid soundcard, I've even installed a new sndvl32.exe, I've opened it up and gave it a good dusting (because it needed one anyway) and I've tried to get sound out of the cd rom itself (with no results).I'm wondering if it's not just the plugin port (where the speaker plug) goes that's broken (but how?). If not, can you suggest anything else? Is it worth just disabling this soundcard and installing a new one (into one of the expansion slots)? Any help? Please?

Hi, I have an Hp Pavilion dv2700 special edition laptop. I used to have Vista, but now I have windows 7 after I got the computer fixed. I downloaded and installed some programs, but I didn't like the effect they had on my computer after running them, and so I did a system restore to a previous date, which changed the settings back to when I didn't have those programs. Ever since, Windows has been installing updates to my computer, and some of those updates were obviously for the audio device installed in/on the system.

My question is for some reason, (and I can't really discern when the problems started arising), every time I try to listen to something on my computer like songs or videos, etc.-- with moderate volume level--and I try to load something else and/or the hard drive is active, the sound coming out of the my speakers starts to crackle and make weird electric-like grinding noises. This never happened to me before with vista, and it's irritating me a great deal now. Is there any way to fix this problem? Or am I just stuck with this?

Oh and I forgot to mention...when I plug in my headphones the sound continues to play on my speakers rather than within my headphones, any explanation for this? And what I could possibly do about it to fix it?

Thanks for the help in advance; truly appreciate it .

Answer:Speaker sound crackle or make weird grinding, electric type noises

I just checked the HP website and they do not support Windows 7 on the Pavilion dv2700, meaning they don't have any drivers for Windows 7.Evidently you didn't check that out before installing Windows 7 on it.Drivers for HP laptops are custom-made for the manufacturer (or at least some of them are) so that they match the custom-made components.Furthermore, although HP do have Windows Vista drivers for your Pavilion dv2700, they are not guaranteed to work properly on Windows 7.I'm guessing that's the cause of your current sound problem. Go back to Vista & you will almost certainly have no such problem.If you want Windows 7 buy it pre-installed on a new laptop which has been designed to run it, or before upgrading the OS in future, check that suitable drivers are available from the laptop maker's website!If you were led to believe that all Windows Vista drivers will work just as well on Windows 7, you've been misinformed.

Hi everyone,

I have an interesting problem: On my laptop (Lenovo Y510p) I can hear a buzzing/whistling/noise sound while my headphones are plugged in. The problem goes away when I mute my sound, but this buzzing can be heard while booting as well.

This led me to believe that my problem is simply a hardware issue, but I have a dual-boot setup with Ubuntu Linux on another partition where the sound works perfectly (i.e. no buzzing/whistling sound), which is interesting because it is using the exact same hardware.

I've tried: Reinstalling the audio driver and using different headphones. Neither gets rid of the problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! I'd be happy to provide more information.

Answer:Noise/Buzzing Heard in Headphones when Sound Unmuted

Do you have the correct sound driver installed? If you only have the "High Definition Audio Codec" installed, that is only the generic Windows installed sound driver and not the correct one. Although the driver is not an issue when booting.

I'm kind of lost, i've tried everything i can to my knowledge.

It doesn't happen always, only when my computer emits a noise such as somebody talking in skype or music. When the computer is meant to be silent, it stays silent. When it is meant to emit sounds it emits the usual sounds but then emits this loud static along with the sound.

It's not the speakers because i had the same problem with my previous ones.
My drivers are all up to date and i have no sound card.
It's not my rear audio jack because when i place the speakers in my headphones slot, it still emits the same noise.
I'm not sure if it is interference because i don't have anything near my computer or subwoofer other than a lamp.
Could the computer be interfering with subwoofer/speakers?

I'm really lost and this has been a very annoying problem...

Any thoughts?

Hi,

Problem:
Mostly when I play games, or use my webcam or in screensaver mode my computer freezes and there's a strange buzzing static noise coming from my speakers and all that I can do is shut my computer down with hitting the back on/off button and reseting the whole comp. Sometimes, I can play games all day and nothing happens.

I'm having some trouble with my laptop's sound. Every few minutes, it sounds like the audio skips and buzzes for less than a second. It sounds like interference or something. I was certain it was a fault with the speakers, but the problem exists when listening on headphones and even on the TV connected through HDMI. Also, it happens in Windows Media Player, Adobe Flash, or anything that has audio. Is there a way to fix this? Thanks.

Answer:Sound Buzzing in Speakers/Headphones/HDMI

I'm still not having any luck. After doing some tests, I determined that the mouse and keyboard are affected too. Every 30 seconds, on the second, everything stutters for less than a second. In addition to the audio problems described, the keyboard stops taking input and the mouse automatically clicks a link if the cursor is hovered over it. Any ideas on what's going on?

Hello everyone.

My speakers are MS/ML-T508, and when I turn them on, they are humming very loudly. This problem appeared only when I woke up today and turned on my PC. Everything was fine yesterday.

I included the model of my speakers and the sound they are playing in the attachments (I recorded the sound with my phone, so the quality is kind of bad. If you can't hear anything, turn up the volume on your speakers). Please note that my twin stereo output speakers are fine and the sound is coming from the big box in the middle (Don't know the name of it), and the sound is playing whenever I turn it on (It doesn't matter if it's plugged in the PC or not).

Thanks in advance and if you need any more info on the problem, I'll share it. And feel free to move the thread if it's in the wrong sub-forum.

Answer:Strange humming/buzzing sound in speakers

Hello and welcome PP mate first up please follow this System Info - See Your System Specs as it is very hard to help not knowing what one is working with. For example I do not know whether you are using a sound card or the board audio.

I am using xonar d2x sound card and it has been good until recently when I played videos on youtube and games it gives a loud buzzing noise. Even sounds made by windows sound produces the loud buzzing noise. It also happens on sometimes when playing videos. Other than that it works fine. I tried to use realtek sound but can't find the driver on device manager, even after downloading & installing the drivers. I tried reinstalling my xonar sound driver but it didn't fix the problem. I reformatted my pc and installed the xonar sound card but the problem is still there. I then tried installing the update for it but my pc crash (blue screen with driver_IRQL_not_less_or_equal error). After restart, there's no audio output device detected. Device manager shows Marvell 91xx Config ATA device not installed.

I'm really frustrated now. Is there anyone that can help me? Thanks alot.

Answer:xonar d2x sound card loud buzzing noise problem

First, don't have two sound devices enabled, as that can cause conflicts.

Is the buzzing caused by something attached to the sound card? e.g. a "ground loop hum". Remove anything attached to the card and then just connect a headphone and see if you still get the buzzing. If its gone then what is attached to the card is causing the problem. If its still there the first step is to "reseat" the card (with the PC powered off, remove the sound card then reinstall making sure its fully and correctly seated).

Hello all,

I hope someone can help me get to the bottom of this infuriating problem.

My desktop randomly freezes up, and a buzzing sound emits from my speakers. This can happen anytime, when writing a Word document, watching a movie, playing a game etc.

The reset button on my front panel will not reset the computer, the only thing that works is for me to hold in the power button for a few seconds, to switch PC completely off, wait a few seconds, then power it back on.

All drivers are up to date, and my motherboard has the latest BIOS installed. Dump zip is attached.

Many thanks,

Andy

Hello,

My Qosmio F20 has a strange problem. After turning the notebook on, the speakers start to make a hissing noise. You can hear it clearly all the time. Toshiba just has replaced the mainboard but tis hissing sound is still there. Is this normal for the Qosmio F20? When I turn off the sound in Windows the hissing noise is gone, also after putting in headphones (there's no hissing sound in the earphones...) the sound is gone.

Thanks for any hints!

So basically I've had this problem for a while now but it has always been fairly uncommon. Recently though it has become much more common and there are a few games in particular which will always have this issue occur. I've searched around an seen some posts saying that it may be GPU overheating so I monitored the temperature on it and found that in the various freezes it never rose above 60degrees. I also ran memtest a while back which came up with no problems so I'm really not sure what the problem is. Is it possible that my PSU does not provide enough power maybe? Any help appreciated.

Hello, I have a
Satellite A100-998
Part Number : PSAA9E-0PP044EN

My speakers make a horrible high pitched noise when the laptop is plugged into the AC power, but not on battery. It happens through my in-built soundcard, my external soundblaster card, and the headphones ports on both, and they all have the latest drivers anyway, so the problem is elsewhere. The noise doesn't show up on the windows output waves, i.e. muting everything doesn't stop it, nothing is "generating" the sound like a program running in the background.

Can anyone help? Here's a link to the noise, I recorded it with the headphone port linked to the microphone port, it's quite quiet, you might have to turn your speakers up to hear it. Link:[http://rapidshare.com/files/114859161/noise.mp3.html]

I'm guessing it's some sort of interference but I'm a software guy, I don't know about these sorts of things.

Thanks

Answer:Satellite A100-998: Speakers make noise when on AC power

I doubt software could cause that kind of thing, sounds like it could be an earthing issue or a component on the mainboard.

This isnt a headphone problem its a computer problem anyone know how to fix it?

Answer:my headphones make a buzzing sound when plugged in

really man?

there are so many factors involved.

it could be the power plug you have plugged into.. the wall outlet/socket.. that causes buzzing..

plug the headphones into other sources and if you notice buzzing.. cdplayer/iphone/ipod..

then when did this start? is it all headphones? have you tried different headphones?

there isn't much to do inside windows but tweak sound settings.. and make sure your sound drivers are the latest... if you have a Realtek audio card etc.. which of course you like many others don't tell us what you have..

It's most likely something power wise causing buzzing.. do you live in an old house?

or the components inside your computer are interfering... from bluetooth to the fan running inside the computer..

I'm guessing power but How to do anything with power except set grounding and voltage levels? which you definitely shouldn't do with your computer..

and then I would NOT particularly tweak these settings but.. things like

Just built a new computer, and everything went smooth except that a small but sometimes very noticeable buzzing comes out my headphones. I cant really explain it other than its a high pitched buzz, that changes frequency depending on whats on my screen. On the desktop, or web browser its very fast, while when I go into a game it slows down but becomes louder. And when something is loading, as in when i bring up firefox, it pauses for a second, then continues buzzing, or when loading a game, at the loading screen it is completely quiet, then when I am in game, it continues. Another wierd thing is, if I am scrolling through a long webpage or text file really fast, the buzz will vary depending on how fast Im scrolling.
I actually had to take my sub woofer out because i t was amplifying the buzz probably almost 20-fold, so I'm going straight from headphones to the computer.
Also, changing the sound volume on the computer does not change the buzz.

Now, as far as I know, i have the latest sound drivers, I went to my motherboards website, and downloaded the audio driver for the gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L. Other than that I dont know what else it could be.
Here's a dxdiag, if that helps.

I'm not sure why this problem exists, but if I play no audio for maybe 1 or 2 minutes, then open up youtube or an audio file to play it, there is a pop before playback even starts. If I attempt to play something else immediately after the pop happens, then that audio does not suffer the same problem. This also is not a problem exclusive to the media player because any sound that is played after about 30 seconds of idling has the same audible noise right before it. It is actually a very frustrating problem. I have reinstalled the Realtek audio drivers multiple times and this still doesn't help get rid of the problem. My speakers are the Altec Lansing ADA745 5 piece set.

Answer:Speakers Make An Audiable Pop/Crackle Noise Whenever Starting Playback

I remember users having this trouble back in the Win XP days on the Dell forums. With an old 4.1 speaker system, this suggests an old PC. Is this correct? (Please fill in the "My System Spec's - it helps us to try and help users).

If the Realtek is Windows 7 compatible, uninstall the RealTek in the Device Manager and also uninstall the Realtek drivers. Then restart the PC and Windows will detect and reinstall the Generic, Basic Function, High Definition Drivers. See if they change anything.

Lately my HP Pavilion dv7 -6135dx has been making a popping noise from the speakers which is independent of both the laptop's set volume and the devices plugged into it. I have checked, and I'm certain that it's not the "Click of Death," as it's not consistent, comes from nowhere near my hard drive, happens independently of memory usage, and will sometimes cause my headphones to "dull" in volume for a brief second. SMART data checks via DiskCheckup also say my HD is working fine, though as I know, SMART isn't always reliable.

The sound comes either from my speakers directly, or from my speaker region at the back of the laptop. Covering the speakers muffles it, so I'm almost certain it's the speakers themselves. The only way I'm able to replicate this sound is to unplug an inserted audio device like a headset. Otherwise it happens at seemingly random intervals. As I said, it's not consistent, but it's happened multiple times in a row before. I think the highest string was five.

My device manager says that the drives are working fine, and this problem has only recently started in the past week or two. I haven't updated my drives recently (at least that I'm aware of) so I don't think it's that either. Google's been of little help as well. The laptop's not even a year old, but it sees a heavy amount of use.

Where the buzzing is coming from, can you pinpoint? A fan, PSU, harddisk, GPU? It may be a bad capacitor. Open the case and visually check the components.

Search Google Images for bad capacitors to see what they look like.

I sounds much like a dial up tone (intermittent or continuous) and seem to only be active when something is buffering or downloading, any internet connectivity etc. The volume of the 'buzzing' isn't affected by increasing the volume and there has been no new wireless devices added to the house in that time.

Anyone have any idea what is causing this bizarre noise? Thank you

I just got brand new logitech Z313 speakers and they are AWESOME except when there's no sound playing through them .. then they are LOUD and ANNOYING because of all the white noise just spewing out of them. It's not bad like if some wires were crossed with feedback but it's loud enough to hear all the time as this constant background noise of hissing static and sometimes popping. My old speakers didn't do this at all. But they were very low quality speakers and they finally died out. So I got new speakers and hooked them up and now I have all this white noise. No wires are touching or too close to each other. I have no idea why this is happening. I have to UNPLUG the speakers to get the white noise to stop. And yes, I'm sure it's the correct audio jack the speakers are plugged into.. I'm not plugging them into the wrong port. I promise.

Is it something with my motherboard sound causing this? Or is it the new awesome speakers? My old pair were like $10 and these new speakers are like $40. BIG difference for me. My sound quality has GREATLY improved but now I have all this white noise to deal with. Any suggestions?

I feel like it has something to do with the motherboard sound card or some kind of wireless interference (I have a cordless phone and a router in the room but not next to the speakers or computer) ... but I am not very knowledgeable about computers so I am unsure. It's just a feeling.

This seem to have fixed the noise issue every time i used to open Steam but, I can still hear a random hiss noise when I'm browsing the internet. I've also just noticed when I goto https://uk.yahoo.com/ yahoo's main page this hiss noise comes on for about 10 seconds then dissapears, no video playing just the main yahoo page. What's going on???

I have had my new pc for a few months now and I have noticed within the past couple weeks or so I get these REALLY ANNOYING audio glitches during music playback. Like a 3 second metallic skipping noise every so often.....maybe once a song. At first I thought it was iTunes but the problem also happens when playing music on the emusic website. I tried uninstalling the realtek audio drivers and having windows 7 reinstall them but no luck. any ideas?

I'm a new owner of a new L540. Something I wonder about: I plug it in via power plug and go into BIOS or into Diagnostics (memory check e.g.). The fan goes into a high level. So far, so good.
 
But it buzzes. It buzzes very loud. I'm not a native speaker, so I don't know if the word "buzz" is the right word. It is a deep frequent tone noise that changes if the fan goes into another level. If I try to localize it with my ears, I'd say it comes from the upper left corner near the ESC key (where the fans meet) -- but from the bottom of the laptop.Now the thing I don't understand: If I close the display lid fullly, i.e. 100%, (while still being in BIOS or Diagnostics so the laptop does not shut down),  the buzzing sound will get massively quieter (maybe only 10-20% of the buzz noise will remain). The fan noise (swoosh) itself will remain unchanged.
If I don't close the lid 100%, the display will go out, but the deep buzz noise will remain on 100%. So it only will get quieter if I close the display lid 100%.My question: Is this a normal behaviour of the laptop?(I don't have a ssd but the hitachi SATA. Is that the reason? But why does the buzz tone changes with the fan noise level?)(I did not install in the battery yet because I might have to send the laptop back. Could installing the battery help with the buzz noise?)

I have first noticed this issue about 3 years ago, on windows 7, reported it to HP but they couldn't do anything about it so I just ignored it. I then upgraded to a newer pc which came with windows 10, noticed again, the same dim white noise comes up randomly even if the volume level is muted, high or low. It lasts form 10  seconds, and sometimes up to 2 minutes. I spoke to HP again and they just couldn't find a solution for it. I have a HP Pavilion Gaming Notebook - 15-ak113na Windows 10 - Home 64 Bit, i7, 8GB Ram, and Realtek High Definition Audio with B&o. I have tried all the basic steps to resolves this. From uninstalling and using only the generic windows sound, full system reset, muted the microphone and disabled it, windows sound test and troubleshooter, ticking and unticking the two box under Exclusive Mode in the advanced section in the Sound properties, tested it on google chrome, internet explorer and Edge. Anybody else have this issue as well, or is it just me? fix?

Hello. Well like some folks Im having problems with my brand new (Not even a week old) HP Envy x360 15T Notebook.Specs:i5 5200u w/HD5500 Graphics8GB RAM1TB HDDB&O AudioFHD IPS Screen Touch.The issue is: Terrible Crackling Noise, Hiss and Noise problems in Speakers and Headphones.. After doing some troubleshooting myself I pin pointed the issue to the Bang & Olufsen Audio Codec. The issue became aparent when I updated the Realtek Driver to the lastest version last night.. There werent any noises before after upgrading to Windows 10 (The notebook came with W8.1) but after installing the Realtek drivers the noise began. If I unplug the notebook a horrible crackling noise will happen and its in sync with the brightness level of the screen being lower when entering battery mode. If I plug AC the noise will POP and level out. Before installing the Realtek Drivers the only issue I had was ground static in headphone mode, I could hear the HDD spinning on the headphones if there werent any music or sound playing but the noise was muffled If I played anything like music or youtube video.Then with the new realtek drivers the noise was horrible... Crackling Noises and Hiss are completely evident over the music our sound being played, Even on the speakers it is noticeable.   New issues on B&O Audio Codec Control Panel:B&O Sound Enhance Has never worked on Headphones but at least the EQ Worked, After the Realtek Driver ...

Answer:Crackling Noise and Hiss on HP ENVY x360 15T

One thing that did work was disabling multiple audio deviced on the B&O Control Panel that got rid of the Crackling sound in headphone mode... But speaker mode is still affected.

I have had my laptop for about a year or so, and I noticed when I very first turned it on that quite a loud hissing noise came from the onboard speakers. It has always been there, although it sometimes goes and returns for no apparent reason (it doesn't seem to be triggered by a particular application, for example...). I learned to live with it, but I am now using and external USB headphone amplifier for my headphones, and the noise it really quite noticeable and annoying.

The Microsoft website hasn't helped, so I'm wondering now whether it's a hardware problem; has anyone experienced anything similar and solved the problem?

Answer:Satellite A200 - hiss from speakers

Hello

Is your notebook up to date? In this case I mean especially the sound and graphic drivers but also the BIOS. I think you should check the Toshiba website for some updates:
http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com => Support & Downloads => Download Drivers

Before you install a newer sound or graphic driver you should remove the old version first. Then restart the notebook and install the newest version from the Toshiba page.

Answer:ticking noise from speakers and no sound

You did not rule out "BOMB!!!!" OMG run.

Sounds to me you may have radio interference from a nearby source, have you moved any furniture lately ?

Ive recently purchased this laptop brand new as a replacement to my HP chromebook 14. Although a better spec, this laptop is seriously underperforming compared to the chromebook. Biggest issue is the audio quality, any noise played from the speakers is accompanied by a static buzzing/muffling sound.  How do I solve this?

Hey Guys...

So my Packard Bell Easy Note MX37-S-200 has suddenly started making persistent " Crackling " and " Popping" noises from the moment I boot it. The noise is coming from the speakers and the sound is now distorted. I have very recently got it back from the repair shop after having my AC jack replaced... I would really like to rule everything out before I start pointing fingers at the repair guy

Things I have tried - Disabling sound driver - Noise was still there and laptop just installed it again.

Running avast scan through it - Scan picked up nothing.

Played with the sound setting - Nothing changed noise still there.

Plugged in PC speakers - Noise still coming from laptop but sound came out of the speakers fine.

I have noticed also that when the laptop first starts up the noise is louder and more spaced out. I'm wondering maybe whether it is the fan? But I don't no why the noise would be coming from the speakers.

Would really appreciate any help
Thank you
 

Answer:Crackling noise coming from laptop speakers + sound distorted

My guess is that based on the information provided that the wires for the speakers have either been damaged or crossed in some way where they are touching something they shouldn't causing distortion. My advice would be to take it back and tell them whats going on and make sure to have them fix it for free if they opened it and caused this problem.
