Hello! Registered to ask help with this problem. My computer has been making odd buzzing sound under stress for some time now. It happens usually when I try to play newer games but sometimes just using web browsing or Youtube induce lesser sounds. I've changed CPU cooler, GPU and memory sticks during this time, and that hasn't changed the situation. Here's a recording of the sound: http://vocaroo.com/i/s0lzb1fnc9RK

I moved the phone around to locate the source of the sound and I think it's coming from bottom half, below GPU, possibly near PSU. Is there anyway to test if it's the PSU?

I'd appreciate the help, this has been bugging me for quite some time. I know I shouldn't wait around with a computer making disturbing noice, but what can I say.

(One detail I noticed is that Speccy gives my memory sticks speed as 933MHz when is should be double that.)

I bought a W541 with 4gb of ram and 1 750gig HD with the intention of upgrading the ram to 32gb and installing 2 hds in raid myself. After I got the computer i found out that if I didn't order it with RAID it wouldn't support it, so I ordered another of the same computer with RAID to replace it. While I was waiting for the replacement I installed the ram in the computer and it worked fine. Now I have the new computer, the only difference is that it has the RAID chip, and thats working fine, but when I installed the ram all the computer would do when you turned it on was make a high pitch buzzing sound. I thought maybe it had gotten a static shock while I was switching it so I sent it back for another 32 gb kit. Today the new kit came in, and its the same thing, all the computer does is make a high pitched buzzing sound.  Any ideas? TL;DR: W541 with raid will not even post with 32 ram upgrade. I bought the G.Skill Ripjaws 1.35V F3-1600C9Q-32GRSL, but that shouldn't matter as it worked in the first computer.

Answer:32 GB Ram upgrade, computer only makes a buzzing sound

I have not used that RAM, but it should work. All I can suggest is that you make sure you have the latest BIOS. Looking at the change log, at least v 2.09 fixed a memory detection problem.

Computer Freezes whilst gaming and makes buzzing sound this has happened for the past few weeks, i have tested the ram using mem test and replaced each chip but its still happening and im un sure why


This might be solved already but im insure where to go from now, i have also tried underclocking the ram and underclocking the cpu but im still having the freezing issue.

Answer:Computer Freezes whilst gaming and makes buzzing sound

A buzzing sound may mean a capacitor going bad. Open the case and get a flashlight and check them visually until better advice is given.

Search Google images for "bad capacitor" to see how they would look like.

Another thing that comes to my mind is the buzzing is a faulty fan? Get HWInfo and check CPU and GPU temps.

Back around the first of the year I sent my xps 17 L1702x back to the depot to replace a bad motherboard. Ever since then I have noticed a buzzing sound in the speakers when the volume is half way up or louder. I can press down on the top of the hand rest area, and the buzzing stops Has anyone else experienced this problem? I would hate to have to send the computer back to the depot for this but it's driving me crazy!

As of a day ago my pc won't start. I hit the power button, lights turn on on the tower, the monitor shows nothing, and there is a very quiet repetitive buzzing sound coming from the speaker on the motherboard. I think it buzzes six times and then nothing. I can then hit the power button again and all the lights instantly turn off.
Yesterday I opened it up and blew it out (it was VERY dusty) but that didn't help.
Any ideas?

Hello Team,
I just recently purchased a brand new dell XPS 15" corei7 I am pretty happy with my system but it is making a silent but annoying buzzing sound while browsing the web, scrolling over the toolbar or opening a web page with moving graphics on it and even opening a new folder or file makes a buzzing sound.
I tried to search for a solution over the net but wasn't helpful. If anyone can help me hear please.

So my acer labtop makes a tazing (buzzing sound) when i watch videos in vlc or youtube i use iptorrents its a private tracker and is not supposed to have as many virus's due to the fact that the uploaders on the site scan the files before putting them up, ever since i downloaded a movie pack from the site my labtop has been doing this ive also uninstalled vlc and reinstalled it and it still does it if someone could reply and let me know how to fix the problem to get rid of the noise that would be great.

Answer:Acer Labtop makes tazing (Buzzing sound)

Hi which laptop is it?  I just got the new vn7 792g and am finding it makes an electrical buzzing sound sometimes.  Does changing your power plan settings make any difference?I believe it is known as coil whine or coil noise.  If that's what you have then it's nothing to do with viruses or anything, it's inductor coils on the motherboard vibrating depending on what power your cpu or gpu is drawing.#I'm thinking of talking to acer support about it as it is really quite irritating.

Answer:W520 Freezes and makes loud buzzing sound

Hi, zackh123
 
I would recommend checking the logs in Event Viewer, which can be found under Control Panel ? Administrative Tools. Once in Event Viewer, open the folder Windows Logs and check out the System logs. Try going back to the last time this occurred and check for any errors or warnings that may lead to the system freezing like this.
 
Also, what is your operating system? And from where does the buzzing sound seem to come from?
 
Thanks in advance,Adam

Answer:My PC freezes and makes buzzing sound in game or when watching HD movies

Are you overclocking the CPU or GPU? Example would be using the AMD Catalyst software (under AMD Overdrive) and increasing clock settings? Maybe played with the BIOS settings and overclocked the CPU? It sounds like you are putting too much stress on the GPU portion of your AMD A8 3500M chip, and it may just be heating up too much. If you haven't yet tried, install CPUID HWMonitor to check on the temps as your gaming or watching movies to see how high the temps get.

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 just got a brand new Lenovo Thinkpad 430 and whenever I insert a DVD into the DVD player and it starts playing, it makes a loud buzzing noise and the whole laptop starts to vibrate. It seems as if the DVD player is working really hard to get the disc going and I am definitely sure that while it may make some sound while playing the DVD, it is not supposed to buzz this loudly and make the whole laptop shake this much. Is it possible I can get this fixed? Or should I go get this replaced? 

Answer:DVD player makes whole laptop shake and vibrate with a loud buzzing sound

go into your BIOS menu, under config -> power -> Optical Drive Speed -> Choose normal or silent mode. Now retry.

Whenever I go to turn on my computer in the morning, it makes a very annoying buzzing sound that gets even louder and more annoying as the time goes by. I have no idea what is causing this. I've opened my case and looked around trying to pinpoint the noise but have been unsuccessful. I have a feeling it might be the hard drive or maybe the PSU but I really don't know, those are just guesses. I've tried turning off a few of the case fans and even reduced the speed of my HSF but nothing. I really don't think it is the fans anyways. I really don't know what to do, I really hope that this noise isn't a warning sign that one of my parts is going to fail.

Also, I just want to mention that this noise doesn't occur whenever I shut down the computer and then turn it back on again. This is what I've been doing pretty much everyday now. I turn the computer on, listen to the annoying buzzes for a couple minutes, shut down, turn it back on and then use my computer normally.
 

Answer:Upon startup, computer makes buzzing noise

A buzz.
Yes, maybe something in the way of the power source fan.

I installed 7 about 2 weeks ago and I love it, cept now every so often my computer makes this intermittent buzzing sound (not from the speakers from the actual computer). Is my hard disk dying? it sounds like it's coming from the front of the case (it's either the hard drive or the fan)

Answer:Computer makes random buzzing noises

Check to see if anything on the case is loose and buzzing. I had an intermittent buzzing on a Dell desktop that drove me crazy until I finally found a plastic bezel on the front was slightly loose and causing the buzz.

Otherwise open the case and with the PC powered on maybe you can figure out where the noise is coming from.

So a few weeks ago I was in Sony Vegas editing a video and suddenly my mouse and keyboard both became unresponsive and a loud buzzing noise started coming out of my speakers. I left it for a few minutes but nothing happened, there was no blue screen of death, no error message,nothing. so the only thing I could do was force a restart.

Over the next few days the problem continued in graphical/CPU intensive programs (such as photoshop, Vegas, fsx, etc), and all I could do was restart. Not once did I see an error message. I did originally think that it was due to an overclocking (4.4 GHz) however I checked my temperatures and they didn't ever peak above 60-70. Neverthelss, I underclocked back to 3.3 but still experienced the problem.

I read online that I should do a clean install of windows so I did that, and up until now I thought the problem was solved. And a couple of minutes ago I was playing age of empires and the computer froze and then The buzzing started again.

Here's video I recorded of the sound: youtube.com/watch?v=JiyAqeuGreU

I'm really clueless to what it could be. Ive reinstalled NVIDIA drivers, cleaned out the registry, reinstalled windows, what can it be?!

I think it might have something to do with my graphics card or drivers or something along those lines, as the problem only occurs when in games or video/picture editing programs. However, my computer and all the components are new (about a month), and I can't think of any possible meddling I ... Read more

Answer:Computer freezes and makes buzzing noise, no BSOD?

I would say its a graphics card problem, I have had the same happen to me before but that was due to me putting a heavy overclock on my card. I have also had the same happen with a couple of old graphics cards that died.

Although the computer is new, it is know for graphics to fail at any time, if you have the chance you can prove it by testing your pc with a different graphics card, if you don't have access to one then I would either take the pc back to where you bought it and get them to test it, or if you built it yourself I would RMA the card.

Ideally it would be good for you to try another card in your PC first to make 100% sure it is the card, but it certainly sounds like it to me.

So today i finally finished gathering all the hardware for my custom computer and got it all hooked up and booted up.

Everything has been going good, got all drivers and what-not installed.

Lastly i installed Half Life 2 on it, and noticed that only when im playing the game that i hear a high pitch buzzing noise. Its loudness decreases when the game is paused and goes away when i close the game. I first checked all fans to see if that was it and checked for rubbing cords, but after discovering it gets louder and quieter depending on the load, it sounds more electrical. Cant tell if its coming from the CPU or GPU or if its either. Any ideas what could be causing this?

System specs:
Asus P5Q Pro
Intel E8400
Corsair TX650
Corsair Dominator PC2-8500
EVGA Nvidia Geforce 9800 GTX+
Seagate Barracuda 500GB
 

Answer:Computer makes high pitch buzzing noise

That can be just about anything... bad speaker or speaker with torn sound pad, electronic radio wave interference from another device, etc. It can take a long time tracking it down.
Often, however, the cause is merely a mechanical vibration from a cable or plug vibrating against the case, another hardware item, or touching the blade of a case fan or heatsink fan.. If the frequency goes up and down, it can be a fan blade, or dirt on a fan blade. Clean all fans with a que tip and denatured alcohol. Use plastic slip-ties to tie down anything loose.
You might also want to use a cheap AM/FM radio as a detector. Move the radio around the case when it is tuned to a weak station, to see if there is a change in volume or frequency of static.
Defective sound cards, damaged by too much high volume can also result in unwanted sounds, as can wear to a video graphics card, any cooling fan wearing out, optical drive gears or motors.
Remove components, or remove and replace, are the only practical ways to find some such problems.

Recently my computer has been freezing at random times and a buzzing sound is emmiting from my speakers.
 
I haven't found a cause for this, sometimes it happens when I'm watching videos and sometimes it happens when I'm playing games,
 
I will attach a copy of my DxDiag log here.
 
Please help me!
 
Thanks in advance,

Answer:Computer Freezing and Buzzing Sound

With regards to the buzzing, I have come across the odd video where this happens, and my usual cure has been to stop it and restart it.
 
As for the freezing, you say 'recently'. How recently ? If it is a matter of a week or two, I would suggest trying restoring your Windows using a restore point that dated from before this problem occurred. Be aware that if you do this, you will have all the updates to redo from that date, and as it is possible that one of them triggered the problem, re-install them one at a time.
 
If the buzzing is associated with the freezing, and the wording of your post does not make this clear, then I wouldn't worry about it.

Answer:Computer randomly freezes with buzzing sound.

When a PC hangs up or "freezes" such as happening to yours, the sound can produce as low buzzing sound. It is not a sign there is a problem with the sound. There is some other problem, not really associated with sound.

Did Gateway provide any hardware diagnostics? and if they did run them to see if anything shows up.

Hey guys, im new here at tech support, and im here to mooch of your past experience with similar issues
English is not my native language, so excuse me if there is any typos, there shouldnt be though. just incase

I dont know if this is the right forum, i dont know if its hardware or software thats causing it.

So what happend is that the pc was doing just fine the first 2 - 3 weeks, then 2 nights ago i was playing a game called Bloodline champions, after a 3 hour'ish session my computer freez and i cant move the mouse and the keyboard is noninteractive.
I also hear this buzzing sound(from the speakers), and the fans inside the case still run, i dont know if the cpu fan was, i havent tried this with an open door to the case yet.
I had to reboot it with the power on button, i rebooted it after 10 - 20 seconds, there was no BSOD, i imagin there might be one if i just let it run for a while, maybe?.

And last night i was watching a series using VLC, after about 30 - 40 minutes the same thing happens.

The last time it happend i was monitoring GPU and CPU temps and they were fine, cpu around 40 - 45 (i cant remmber exactly) and GPUs in mid 50's, although at idle GPU 1 is at 38 and GPU 2 idles at 47 - 51, i dont know if thats normal or not.
So its probably not heat, right?

Hi there, I just got this new HP laptop and it works smoothly but the fan makes a constant buzzing noise from startup. The fan doesn't seem to be running very fast and I think the noise sounds abnormal and is unlike anything I'd ever heard from my old laptop. I turned off the fan constantly running setting in the BIOS (and now the laptop is completely silent) which is a temporary solution but I'd like to know if this is  fault that I should get looked at.

Hi,I have had my HP laptop (the model is Notebook- 15-r237nl) for about a year and a half now. Usually, it was making a very strong buzzing noise in the beginning, when I was switching it on, which I found out is normal. Then, it started making softer buzzing noises; however, if I turned the laptop off and on again, they were going away.Now, it is a couple of days that it keeps buzzing quite loud, and it doesn't go away when I try to switch it off and on again. Can anybody help me? Also, it should be some kind of assurance or assistance included for the first two years, right? Thank you very much!!!

Answer:Tower makes buzzing noise

Twice in the last few months, after a blue screen and a re-start, the tower started to make a fairly loud buzzing/whinning noise. Upon another re-start this stopped. Do I need to worry?

Hi all,About a week ago I began to notice that under load (playing resource intensive games, CAD, full HD video playback, running multiple VMs) the system stutters every 5-10 seconds for about a second and a buzzing sound comes through the speakers which will interrupt any music or other sounds playing.  A few times it also seems this will also happen momentarily if the system is trying to multitask.  Prior to this, it ran fine for months since I built it.  Resource Monitor doesn't show any spikes in any equipment during stutters and SMART statuses are all good.Initially, I was concerned about display drivers, but after re-installing twice from different sources, the problem continues.  Given the heat we've been having here I thought something might be running too hot, but SpeedFan says otherwise.  I opened the case and dusted everything to be sure.  As there was still no change I considered that the problem may in the power supply, as I've heard of similar symptoms occurring with failing PSU.  Switched to a known good PSU and I'm still experiencing the same problem in the same circumstances. I'm hoping I can get a little input before I'm forced to completely troubleshoot everything.  I haven't installed anything or made any significant changes to software in the last week, so I'm inclined to believe it's a hardware problem.-klifford This system:OS:            &n...

Answer:Computer stutters and produces buzzing sound under load

You already did the most obvious thing. Next try a different graphics cad, You may find the buzzing noise is from the graphics card.

Hey,

Basically I'm really stumped here and need some help! For Christmas I bought myself a new Motherboard bundle (specs below) and installed it and everything has been working fine, CPU has been running between 40-50% and there haven't been any general problems at all.

However about a week ago I was playing a game and my computer just crashed, no blue screen, no minidump...literally nothing. However i did have headphones in and i could hear a buzzing. Took them out and turned my speakers on and the buzzing was still there. I had no option but to hit the reset switch on the front of my case.

And just now (hence why I'm posting) the same thing happened. I was watching a film and it just crashed, once again nothing on the screen, just nothing to even indicate a potential problem

So i have come here in hope that someone will be able to help me with this. Funny enough i'm an IT Technician myself, and I have never come across this problem, so i wouldn't even know where to start. Please any advice is welcome, I just want to get to the bottom of this.

Thank you

Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-880GM-USB3
Processor - AMD FX Bulldozer Quad Core 3.6Ghz

Answer:Computer randomly crashing and making a buzzing sound

What your are experiencing is commonly referred to as "crashed to desktop". This is directly related to your GPU. Have you gone to AMD's website and downloaded the latest driver for your 4600 series GPU? That's where I would start at.

Hello,

I never had an issue with my pc untill couple days ago, it started to freeze and make buzzing sound for couple seconds about every 10 minutes while playing games or watching a movie!

PC specs:

? CPU : Intel? Core? i7-4790K Processor @ 4.00 GHz
? Videocard : EVGA GeForce GTX 970 SSC ACX 2.0+
? Motherboard : ASUS Z97 Deluxe
? RAM : 32 GB

Answer:My computer sometimes freezes and make buzzing sound for 1-2 seconds!!

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.

Also try a clean startup - Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

So I built my first computer! What an experience!

For those interested in what parts I bought, the link is here

Step A to Step Z in assembling computer from ground-up

I have ran into a problem. It seems like there is a buzzing / cracking noise in my computer. At first I thought it was my friend's mic in Ventrilo but then he was off and the sound was still there. It becomes more apparent when I turn on a game like Warcraft III (for DotA) and the buzzing / crackling noise is there. Even while playing Starcraft 2, that same noise is there.

To prove that that noise is not in-game or that its a speaker problem; I verified by playing both SC2 and WC3 and it still emits this noise. I tried using headphones, speakers and such and it still has it.

I plugged in and out my HD Audio. Should I start using th AC 97? My computer MB says its HD Audio so I plugged in that as it says in my motherboard that I only need to plug in one or the other.

Answer:Newly built computer, buzzing / crackling sound?

That should have nothing to do with it. Try to clarify where the sound is coming from. Could be anything

It could be the fan off balance, I could be the hdd not securely fastened, or hdd crackling, whic is very bad.

My elitebook 1030 seems to occassionally makes these small but definitely noticeable and very annoying "buzzing" sounds.  I've noticed that it makes these sounds when I'm activating the trackpad, scrolling, browsing, basically when there's active movement on screen.  Could this be due to the SSD, or the graphics card, or something else? Also, I find that rebooting the machine gets rid of the problem, but if I leave it on sleep for a while, and then use it again, these noises come back.  I also own an elitebook 1020, so I know for a fact that the machine (fanless and SSD) should be completely silent.  In fact, this is the reason I went with the core M over the more powerful cpus, so these noises are really bothering me.  The machine is within warranty, but I hope there is an easy fix.  Anyone with a similar issue?  Is this a known issue? Thanks!

Hi,I bought the laptop from amazon.com on July 23, 2016. Currently, I live in Armenia and as I know Acer does not have official service center here (the nearest one is in Russia).I have some problems with the laptop. It makes strange buzzing noise or some sort of quiet coil whine whenever I move the mouse, scroll a page or anything. The noise comes from the upper left corner. I've tried to use the laptop wifi card, HDD and DVD removed, but the noise is still present. I am sure that that noise does not come from the fans. The noise is very audible in silence. During the recording process, I was scrolling the Google Chrome page which was causing the buzzing noise and also an install wizard was running.It will be difficult for me to send it for a repair as it is connected with big expenses. I need a piece of advice about the part causing the annoying sound. I would like to replace the part myself.You can find attached the recording of that noise. Also, find enclosed the image indicating the area that the sound comes from. I understand that helping without diagnosing the laptop is not easy, but still, any advice will be greatly appreciated.Thank you in advance!Regards https://soundcloud.com/jamesthomson90/record20170226193151https://soundcloud.com/jamesthomson90/voice-009 

Answer:ACER VN7 792G makes buzzing noise

Firstly look at this: http://imgur.com/a/kykBkThe noise you recorded is most probably a coil whine. Area highlighted on the photo is the CPU area. Most probably, sound comes from the one of CPU power coils.What you can do:1) Try to unplug USB devices. Maybe it sounds strange, but unplugging a device from the left USB port and plugging it to the right port (or vice versa) can help sometimes.2) Try to set minimum CPU state = 100% or maximum CPU state = 99% in Windows advanced power settings. Sometimes the coil noise appears only on certain CPU load level or certain CPU frequency range.3) Try to boot Windows in safe mode or boot any Linux distro from USB flash. This can help you understand, can your issue be resolved in software level, or it cannot. Sometimes the coil noise appears only when CPU is loaded by certain sort of software tasks. (E.g. one of my laptops whined with VMWare services running in background.)4) Forget about warranty and go to the nearest well-respected service center.

hello
problem =
5 year old 32 inch crt t.v makes a high pitched buzzing noise, this happens randomly, it goes away if i put a little pressure on the top, or if i bash it, but it soon comes back.

any thoughts ... thanks
 

Answer:T.v makes a high pitched buzzing noise

Open the back of the old CRT television and carefully clean the dust and dirt away from the high-voltage components, usually located on the right side of the chassis looking at the back of the TV. The CRT holds a high-voltage charge where a big red or black wire connects to the glass tube so be careful. The area around the red wire rubber cup can be cleaned using a spray bottle of window cleaner, but again be careful not to get shocked... 25,000 to 30,000 volts can be present on the CRT

Its a giga-byte 8IEXP in the system I built 2 months ago, first one i've ever built. About a month ago I began to hear a buzzing noise occasionally,its gotten more frequent. I thought it was the CPU Fan but after reseating it tonight I listened to it closely and its the Mobo fan. a picture of the mobo is here:

http://www.anandtech.com/mb/showdoc.html?i=1672&p=9

Its the golden fan to the left of the CPU slot, anyways there are 4 screws on top which dont appear to hold the fan the mobo, but instead hold the fan together. Ive tried tightening them but they're pretty much as tight as can get. There appears to be 2 screws holding the fan into the mobo, but they're are like plastic caps on top of them I'm kind of afraid to try and pry off, at least until someone tells me to do so. Does this sound like a defective mobo or just something that needs some tightening? Thanks.
 

Answer:My mobo fan makes the most horrible buzzing noise....

Seems to me like the thing just needs a little grease It's easy enough to do. Just remove the fan, take the sticker off the front, take off the little round cover with a flat-tip screwdriver or something of the sort, then add some type of grease (WD-40 has even worked for me, if you can get it in there without a mess) to the little the hole. Put the little round cover back on, re-apply the sticker and screw it back on.

Or, just buy another chip fan thats the same size, they're pretty cheap.

Hey guys and gals,

I just built my new system and am getting a strange skipping or buzzing noise every 5 seconds when playing music, the files were fine on my old computer, and I have tested it with the onboard sound and my sound card, sadly to say it happens with both.

My system is:
Intel Core 2 duo 2.4 gig
2 gig 800mhz
Asus board with the P35 chipset.

I checked the task manager an my cpu useage isn't spiking, I really don't know where to begin, occasionally the mouse will stutter as well.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Answer:[SOLVED] Getting a 'buzzing' like sound every few seconds, fresh install new computer

Dear Curt2k1 ,
A few questions first:
1. from where are you getting the Buzzing noise? try to follow it.
are you hearing it from the speakers? maybe the speakers are broken, need external power supply.
2. there are a few things that can make buzzing noises othen speakers: fans (CPU, Tower, power supply), HD, CD, that's it- things that move.

wish you all the best.

Hi,

I got a new system assembled in September this year. Since the last two weeks, there is a weird buzzing sound [like that of a bee] emanating from inside the system at random intervals. It lasts for 4-5 seconds, and then stops only to occur again. Initially, I ignored it. But when it continued this way, I opened up the CPU while the system was running.

Now, there are two fans inside my CPU: a big one mounted vertically at the back [kind of like an exhaust fan] and a smaller one screwed horizontally on a heat sink [processor fan I suppose?]. I discovered that the sound was emanating from the processor fan. How did I know? Well, I waited for the buzzing sound to occur again and when it did, I placed a finger on the center of the fan. The fan stopped rotating and so did the buzzing sound.

The fan is screwed on to the heat sink. Initially, I thought that it might be due to friction/ fan rubbing against a rough surface. So I unscrewed it and took a peek underneath. But it seemed fine to me. Then, I cleaned the fan with a hair dryer. It didn?t have much of dust anyway as it?s just 2 months old. I also used the hair dryer to clean the top of the heat sink, then screwed the fan back on, and started the system. It was fine for a couple of minutes and then the buzzing sound materialized once again! And this continues to occur at random intervals even now.

I have experienced ?noisy? computers before and I do understand that it?s normal for computers to be sl... Read more

Answer:Computer fan creates an irritating buzzing sound at random intervals

I'd say the fan is defective. I'd just replace it. I doubt it would be worth it to return the CPU, heatsink and fan just to get a new fan but I suppose you could if you wanted to.

My computer is a few years old, but it has NEVER crashed until today. I was in a game of League of Legends, and out of nowhere the screen froze, and a loud buzzing started coming out of my headset, I couldn't alt+tab or ctrl+alt+del. There were no signs of it coming (such as lag). I thought oh well, that's odd and turned off my PC by the front button and then turned it on again. I finished that game without any problems...
An hour later I am trying to launch the game Aion, and my computer freezes again during the launch of the game. This time, the monitor shut off when it happened too... I turned off my PC with the button and left it off for around 30 minutes... I turned it back on, but unplugged my headset to see if maybe for some reason that was the problem. (I read to do that online by one person).. I got on Aion, played for 15 minutes and them boom, crash again out of nowhere.
As of now, I am just on my computer again and I haven't tried to play any games, because that seems to be the only time when my computer crashes... I am not super tech savvy, but I am willing to try anything you give me instructions on how to do.

My brand new toshiba laptop is constantly producing a strange buzzing/static noise which appears to be coming from the fan.

I am not sure if this is the case with all of these models but it is quite annoying and I am worried that something could be wrong with the laptop.

Please can anybody help me on this one?
What may be causing the strange noise?

As I said it appears to be coming from the fan but I am not 100% sure.

Answer:Satellite C50-A-1DV makes strange static/buzzing noise

Did you notice this buzzing/static noise while heavy fan rotation?

To me it?s very difficult to say if it?s a ?common? fan noise or unusual noise which could be related to cooling module problems.

At the other hand you are not 100% sure if this noise is coming from the fan? so I think we are groping in the dark?

From my point of few the notebook is new and if you are unsure if there is some hardware problem, you should ask a service engineer for and check.

Sorry mate but at this point i have no other "solution" for you :(

Hi, There is a strange, very loud intermittent buzzing/screeching noise from the fan of  HP Pavilion TouchSmart 15-n024nr Notebook PC (Model #:F4G16UA). A few days ago the fan started running very loudly. Now suddenly the fan is making a loud noise as it turns on, then it stops (& its silent), then again the noise of fan running and suddenly the loud screeching noise comes from the fan. When i put my hand on the bottm of the laptop on the left side, i can feel the vibrations during those loud buzzing/screeching noises. I ran the system diagnostics quick test and everything came out ok. I also did the components test. All components tested ok except 2 USB ports (which had stopped working earlier, so it was not a big surprise). Can someone help me fix this isue. This laptop is more than 3 years old, so there is definitely no warranty on it. Hope i can understand what is causing this strange noise from the fan. Thanks in advnce.

Hello, just recently joined the forums, yay!

I'll tell you about my problem, if anyone could help I would really appreciate it.

My computer is from 2010 Custom made. It's been working like it should been for the last years while upgrading different parts for more demanding games. Everything except the motherboard and the CPU is upgraded.

I don't know exactly but 3 months + ago my computer suddenly started to freeze and sometimes make a buzzing sound. Mark my words, this only happens when I play computer games. I noticed the freezing when I were playing Rome Total War 2, after 15 - 30min the computer freezes and I need to force shutdown/restart. Then I stopped playing it for months and then I wanted to play the game again, and yet again it happend.

Today I bought and installed Civilization Beyond Earth and after 8-12min of gameplay the computer freezes. Don't know why this happen, but I thought my computer only freezed because Rome Total War 2 is such a big game and is demanding performance and my computer can't handle it. But when civilization is on 2-4GB well.. I don't know.

I have been following this case from 2012: PC Freezes and makes Buzzing Noise when Running Programs but no luck.

Answer:PC Freezes and makes Buzzing Noise when Running Games

well first thing which would be the simple way to go is to completely uninstall those 2 games using revo uninstaller which will not only uninstall the games; but also uninstall the windows registry entries windows puts in when something is installed. What that hopefully will do is sort of create a fresh clean slate on which to reinstall those games. here is the link to revo uninstaller:

Download Revo Uninstaller Freeware - Free and Full Download - Uninstall software, remove programs, solve uninstall problems

download, install, and run it and select the 2 games; let it uninstall them; then reboot; then try reinstalling the games again. IF that does not do anything; the next thing i would do is take a look at how much ram your system has. Your system ideally should have at the very least 8gb ram to run games but i would reccomend 12gb as the more ram there is the better the system performance will be. if no results still; post back and we can go from there.

Whenever I run a certain video game, 5 minutes into it, an internal speaker repeatedly makes two annoying beeps, the first one is a high pitched beep followed by a lower pitched beep. It sounds like an old police siren. If anyone can tell me how to stop this I would be very grateful.

Not really suited for the security forum so pm a moderator and ask it to be moved to hardware as it may be a heat issue on the processor.

Here lately when I turn my computer on, it makes a different beeping sound than usual. Sometimes it will not stop at all. This may have to do with overclocking but not sure. I was trying to reach 3.4ghz but never really could get it stable and that seems to be when it started. Right now I am at stock settings and it still does it. Does this mean there is a problem with my cpu or memory?

I also just reinstalled Windows Vista if that helps any.

When i start playing a game (any game) and my temp. reaches 41 it starts beeping. My alarms are off in bios. I have a thermaltake skull case with the temp. sensors and i did unplagged it from power but the sound was still on. The weird thing is when i minimize the game, the sound goes off right a way, eventhough the temp. is still the same. The sound seems like to come out from the part where dvd and harddrives located along with my sensor thing.
Can anyone suggest what actions can be taken.

Hi and welcome to TSG.

What is the exact make and model of the PC assuming its a 'big brand' name like HP, Dell, Acer etc?
If it is a self / custom build what is the make and model of the motherboard, RAM, CPU, GPU, power supply etc?
The more info the better.

Does this only happen in LoTRO or do you have the same problem in other games?
How old is the PC?
Have you ever changed / upgraded any hardware since you got it?

Hi, I have a problem with my laptop. It was in service at the end of August with the cpu stuck at 0,8GHz problem. They fixed it with the replacement of the motherboard. This problem is fixed, but after the service a new problem came. My left speaker started making buzzing noise when I start playing games(CS:GO or GTA V tested on both). Feels like as my laptop getting hotter and hotter the noise gets louder and louder. If I close the game there is still buzzing noise, but as the laptop cools down it starts getting quieter until it stops doing it. I tried to uninstall and install the audio driver(latest from the acer website), disable or mute the speakers, but nothing help. I'm always using my laptop with headphones. Thanks for the advices in advance.

Hi everyone, new to the forum here.

A friend of mine built me a PC about 8 months ago. As the tower was getting a little 'warm', I decided to open up the tower and clean the fan using compressed air and also (what I think is the CPU, as it was just behind the fan) a little brush as it was covered in dust (the brush is kind of like the thing old ladies use when dying their hair on the roots, it's like a long black brush and isn't very hard at all, I've read that people have cleaned them using a toothbrush, I'd never do that).

Anyway, since then, my PC is alot louder than usual, it tends to make a noise which is like some kind of scraping sound and the 'beep' sound on startup sounds a bit different (hard to explain, but not as clear or healthy sounding, if that makes sense).

It seems to be running fine though, no problems at all but I am concerned about the loud noise (like a gentle scraping like sound) and how the beeping sound is different from before. It could just be a noisy fan and now that it's clean it's even noisier (especially when starting up).

As I know nothing about computers, I'm somewhat afraid that I've done something drastically wrong when cleaning the inside of my PC fan and the front of my CPU. Or it could have always been that way but I never really noticed it before (I'm very OCD about computers).

I should also mention that I didn't touch the hard drive when I cleaned out t... Read more

Answer:Computer makes different sound when beeping when starting up PC

I would check the CPU cooler to make sure you haven't moved a lead into the fans path. When you say you cleaned it with compressed air, did you stop the fan from spinning as you did it, or did you allow it to speed up as the air blasted it?

If you've allowed it to spin up whilst being blasted with air its possible you've let it go too fast and caused wear to the bearings of the fan, hence the louder noise.

When cleaning moving components (fans for example) using blasts of compressed air, it is essential to provide a means of stopping them from moving. For example, using the end of something like a screwdriver against the side of the blade will stop it from spinning. Spinning up fans faster than their designed specifications can cause premature wear to them.

With the side panel off, fire up the computer (do not touch any of the hardware with it running), and see if you can locate where the noise is coming from inside the case. It could be one of the fans, or it could be the CPU cooler fan. Also, have a good look around all of the moving parts and make sure that all wiring is away from fans -- including the GPU (graphics card) if one is fitted.

I recently made the mistake of installing software which contained a tages driver onto my computer, the driver is not compatible with windows 7. When I turn my computer on, sometimes it will make a beeping sound repeatedly, however sometimes it will turn on as normal, and will have no further problems. I have managed to uninstall the driver, but am still having problems turning the computer on. There doesn't seem to be any particular reason for why the computer will sometimes turn on, and otherwise just make the beeping sound repeatedly. Does anyone have any advice?
Thanks!

Answer:Computer makes beeping sound when turned on

The beeping is coming from your PC performing a POST(power on self test).
 
Different patterns of beeps mean different things so next time it does it try to count the number and length of the beeps.
You can check out http://www.technick.net/public/code/cp_dpage.php?aiocp_dp=guide_beep_codes and hopefully show you what is going on.
 
You could also check your restore points and try restoring to a date prior to that software being installed

As soon as I enable it , the first time i use sound or something like the screen saver kicks in the computer reboots by its self. The sound card in a PCI card called Muse XL by hurcules. I dont know if this is and irq conflict or something else but i dont know how to find out either
 

Answer:Sound card makes my computer reboot

Something easy to try first, move the sound card to a differnt pci slot from the one it's in. that should force it to use another irq

to view irq usage go to start/run/type msinfo32 and press enter, left hand frame, choose hardware environment, choose irq's. You will see the irq's usage listed in the right hand column.

I am experiencing a problem again with my computer, a problem I have experienced before. I am hoping for an easier fix this time. Let me explain the symptoms:

1. I turn on the computer in regular mode.
2. After about 1 minute of usage, the computer starts making a repeating clicking noise (I believe it to be the hard-drive? I do not think it is the fan) and then the computer becomes unresponsive.
3. I restart the computer, and we are back at bullet point number one above.

The fix I had that worked was to reinstall the operating system, deleting all old files. So of course I had to back everything up first. I did this by booting in linux. This took me about 24 hours, mostly because my drivers are hell to find and reinstall because I am running windows 7 on a machine that is only supposed to run vista.

I couldn't simply reinstall the operating system while keeping the old files (they call this "upgrading" the OS) because they require you to run the update script while running your current version of windows in normal mode. It does not accept "safe mode". I could not do this of course because the computer freezes if I run the computer in normal mode.

Now about one year later, my computer is experiencing the exact same problem.

If I could just get the computer to NOT freeze for long enough to "upgrade" the operating system (to the same version, so it's not really upgrading), I think the problem would be solved.

I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop, about 4 years old.

I've had this problem for a while now. Whenever I take my laptop inside my bedroom, unplugged or plugged in, doesn't matter, when I try to watch a YouTube video, 10-30 seconds in my laptop freezes and makes a loud buzzing noise from either my headphones or speakers (depends on what I'm using). If I leave it in my room it can take up to 1 minute to recover, while if I grab it and walk out of my room, and go to the living room it recovers immediately. My bedroom is 11-12 meters away from the router (I'm 99% sure this is an internet issue), and I have 3-4 bars of internet connection when inside it.
We also have an old computer (like 2008 or something, but the specs are pretty bad) and when we used to have it inside my bedroom it would never crash (we use wireless internet with the desktop as well, with a usb wireless adapter). Both are running the same operating system (Windows 7)

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.

Hello everyone,

My computer recently has had some software/hardware issue and I need help on fixing it. What happened was I replaced a cell battery in it after I had first heard the sound. Soon after I had put on Artic Silver and the problem was still occuring. I have considered Geeksquad but they are quite expensive and I do not want to go to such lengths just yet. My computer was custom built so I'm not sure if any specific settings were added in or something. As far as my Computer specs go these are what they are:

Intel Desktop Board DQ35J0
X-Fi Sound Card
4GB Ram
500GB Hard Drive {Seagate}

If there is anything else needed to be known about this problem please do let me know. Also I had a keyboard malfunction where it had been typing the wrong keys if you can also help me with this please do post. I do have reason to believe its mainly a power failure but I do not know how to replace/fix it.

Hey guys we recently had power outage and when I went to turn on my computer it made this loud whirring sound 5 minutes after I started it up. Now it does it whenever I turn it on.

So I shut down the PC and I'm checking around on what to do.

Oh and if it is important I don't really turn off my PC unless I have to install some software or drivers or something. I hope that isn't the cause.

I got the computer about 3 or 4 months ago. I don't know exactly what brand it is but I know that the processor is an Intel core duo(the guy who gave it to me told me it was a Quad core) There are no labels on this computer. It has a clear window with blue lights inside it. I know that it is water cooled and has a Geoforce Gt 8500. I was told to replace the coolant inside the PC once every year but I haven't had it for that long so I don't think it is that. I'm sorry I can't exactly identify what type of computer it is.

To sum it up, after power outage computer makes loud whirring sounds when being turned on and I would really like to know what is going on.

Here I took a few pictures of it plus I checked my bios to get more info.

Intel Core 2 CPU 6600 @ 2.40GHz
Intel EM64T capable

Hi

I'm running XP Home at the moment and have twice installed it within the past week, the first time brand new out of the package. After installation on a freshly formatted drive, doing the updates and finally installing my most used programs (all but cell phone one that refuses to work) it started making the sound you hear upon new hardware detection despite NOTHING being added or connected. I let it go for a few days while systematically checking the installed programs though I've been using all of them for years with no problem. When it still persisted I caved, did a fresh format and install this past Saturday and it's still doing it. It's more regular than any alarm. I'm not totally computer illiterate, mostly self taught though my best friend who works for one of the largest computer businesses has taught me a lot as well. (And no, he hasn't had time to help or even talk to due to the incredible amount of hours he puts in)

What, other than having a Bermuda Triangle built computer, could be making it continue to make these sounds despite nothing being hooked up or unhooked?? The only thing I've used on it since the second install is my digital camera, no webcam installed nor cell phone, haven't even plugged in my USB drive.

Any thoughts, suggestions, help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello!
When my computer comes back from sleep mode, it intermitently makes a whooshing sound. Is this the drive spinning up? It only happens after coming back from sleep mode. If the computer never goes into sleep mode, the problem doesn't occur. Is this something serious or should I just live with it?

Answer:Computer makes whoosing sound after coming back from sleep mode

It will probably be both the drives and the cooling fans combined, in which case that's normal unless it's only recently started making that noise even though you've been using sleep mode previously and the noise did not occur on wake-up.

Provided everything is working okay and you are getting no BSODs or other crashes, all will be normal.

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.

The system I built a few weeks ago (thanks to the help of this board!) is running 99.9% wonderfully, but there's one thing that's annoying me: while playing some games, for lack of a better description there seems to be a buzzing/tweetering noise coming from the case. It sort of sounds like a really soft modem connect, or a higher-pitched cricket...? Hard to explain.

I haven't opened up the case yet to pinpoint the noise, but I'm guessing it's the videocard (9800 GTX+) because it only happens in games; I've never noticed it while in Windows proper or any non-game program.

I first noticed it only when in the menu screen of Crysis, but then once I knew to listen for I could heard it in other games like Neverwinter Nights 2 (only while in the main menu screen), Witcher (menu screen and if I look straight ahead in-game), and Guild Wars (all the time). I can change the pitch or tone of the sound by enabling or disabling graphical elements: changing AA, post effects, resolution, etc. all seem to have an effect on the noise.

Does anyone know what the heck it is...? I've never had a component do this and I'm concerned that I'm damaging the card somehow.

Whenever I try to boot this computer up(Win XP Home SP1(should I have put 2 on? It just came out )) it gets past the Windows XP splash screen and either displays a blank screen and crashes or shows the login screen and crashes. When it crashes, I hear a "click-click" sound coming from my case, somewhat reminiscent of a clock.
I run AVG on it, so it shouldn't be a virus, but I don't trust AVG; it seems very unreliable. I knew Norton should be on it
Previously the computer generally booted up(maybe an 80% chance of booting successfully) and only crashed when I ran a selection of applications. For instance, Kazaa Lite seemed to aggravate the crashing, then a week later Direct Connect started to aggravate it as well. That leads me to believe it may be a problem with my alternate drive, since both of those programs access that drive(mostly downloaded files), because sometimes removing it and booting up will solve the problem.
Anyways, what the heck do I do?

Answer:Windows XP computer refuses to boot up; makes "click" sound.

Were you able to restart your system to Safe Mode??

Hi, I got new problem with my 2nd laptop.
The problem is hard to solve.
My sound card, everything is alright.
I can hear sound very well.
But the problem is, i hear BIOS booting sound-"Beep!"ing instead
of system error sound(like when you type "abcdefg" in run, low piano tone sound comes out with
X mark error msg).
That's all the problem i got.
Only error sound is the problem.
My sound card driver is alright.
How do i solve this problem?

Answer:Buzzing sound comes out instead of normal error sound

Please post your computer model/brand. Usually the manufacturing support site has documentations on beep codes. How many beeps do you hear?

I build this computer back in February and since then it makes a loud buzzing sound at startup for about 45 seconds.  It is an i7 build with a Gigabyte MB.  The sound only comes on bootup and then goes away.  I have a url below to a sound clip of the noise.  The noise is quite loud and the file does not do it justice but it gives an idea of what the issue might be.  I have already ruled out the noise coming from any fans or the power supply.  It seems to be coming from the video card area.  Any help in diagnosing the issue would be great. Thank you!http://www.zshare.net/audio/665884516760588b/

Answer:Buzzing sound on startup (w/sound clip)

Open up the case and see if you can locate where that sound is coming from.If it's coming from the hard drive, I'd back up your data immediately while it still works and replace the drive.It's also possible that it could just be a fan that's faulty. Those are easily and cheaply replaced.

Whenever, I lean on the Lenovo Fle 2 15 to type, on the right where the dvd burner/reader makes a whirring and then a click sound. This is so annoying when I am typing or just leaning on the keyboard.

It's a new Dell and it has been making crackling sound since I got it.
I spent an hour on the phone with a technician who restored the laptop with Windows 8.1 to an earlier point in time and it stopped crackling for the rest of the day, but the next day, the noise was back.
The worst are "ding" sounds, they have more crackle than ding. Video playback is bad but at least we can understand what is said. Youtube is bad. mp3 audio is bad. Crackle is there with earphones too.

Hello. If it made the noise right out of the box you probably should have returned it as defective during the brief return period. 
Does it make the noise only when running on battery power or also when plugged into house current?
