DELL XPS 15 makes buzzing sound

Question: DELL XPS 15 makes buzzing sound

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.
Kind Regards

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

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?
 

Answer:PC won't start and makes buzzing sound

Try another power supply.

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.

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!

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

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.

Hi guys

I have a problem with my hp dv7 with amd a8 3500m and more specs there :

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.

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?

I've recently taken delivery of an E7240 with the FHD touch screen option. I am generally quite impressed with the laptop except for one thing, the touch screen buzzes. The sound is similar to a hard disk working, a bit random .. not a constant noise.  The sound will immediately stop when I put a finger on the screen though which makes me think it's related to the touch screen itself. 
Rebooting etc. makes no difference... shaking the laptop, smacking it (gently) etc. has no affect.....
I realise these laptops are new so perhaps there isn't much experience out there.... any help or suggestions would be appreciated

Answer:Dell E7240 and buzzing sound

Dear AndyOT,

the problem you described in your post does rather well apply to the E7240 I've bought much more recently. I wrote myself a post last week about it:

Hello all, this is David!

I'm having a problem with my laptop speakers. When the PC arrived they were all magic and the sound was great but now there's a buzzing sound when the PC volume goes 50%+ or even lower. I can't really tell much more. I only happens with some songs, not all. And it's really annoying. This are supposed to be good speakers, but it happens everywhere, with or without ac adapter, home not home... I don't know what to do since I don't know very much about audio.

Thank you very much, I hope you can help me!

This problem has been pointed out in previous posts (link above)
Dell just replaced the main board of the unit but the problem still exists.
I just also noticed that this noise issue only occurs when the main unit is connected to the keyboard dock.
When the two units are separated, this annoying noise immediately stops and I no longer hear any buzzing sound.
With that said, has anyone tried replacing the keyboard dock unit?

I doesn't seem like it's coming from CPU which is located on the top side of the main unit. This sound seems like it's coming from the very bottom of the main unit of from the keyboard unit.

Answer:Dell Latitude 7350 2in1 buzzing sound NOT fixed after repair

This exactly represents my problem: the noise seemingly stops when disconnected from the keyboard. Also, I have noticed the sound with sometimes be louder in accordance to me scrolling on the mouse pad or using the touch screen to use the scroll bar.

Hi guys!
When I turn off the laptop by using shut down or hibernate there's a loud white noise in the external  active speakers which are connected via audio/jack cable.. Using my old laptop for 5 years, that never happened. What could be the solution to the problem? Aside from turning off the speakers - I always need them on so that I can use them with Chromecast audio connected to Aux-in.

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!!!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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

Acer Aspire M5802

Graphics Card: Nvidia 9800 GTX
Sound Card: Realtek HD Audio (Not Surround Sound)

I have checked that there are no loose connections inside my PC, and the power is plugged in properly
Any help will be appreciated!


Does the buzzing sound come from inside the compute or from the speakers? Is there a message from the bluescreen error? Do you have any .dmp files in the C:\Windows\Minidump folder?

I have an ASUS LED monitor and an MSI motherboard. When the computer goes into hibernate the blue LED indicator on the face of the monitor blinks. When it starts blinking there is a slight buzzing noise that is emitted. Since my computer is in my bedroom I was hoping to be able to change this so at least it doesn't make a noise when I am trying to sleep. Is this possible?

Thank you for posting...

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.

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.

I think I have the exactly same problem, also tried to follow the steps but I must admit. It's a little to advanced for me. I also saw that this was suggested: Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

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.

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 :(

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?!

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.

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.

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.

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)

This has been a problem since the first time I tried to take my laptop in my room. Due to this problem, I am forced to do everything on my living room aka no privacy. I'm begging for a solution.
I did not buy this laptop, it was a gift from someone from what I remember. It used to have a hard drive which broke (had this problem with the first harddrive), so we changed to another harddrive, then that broke as well and now i'm using a Kingston SSD, and the problem is still here.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hello everyone im having issues with my motherboard soundcard because i have recently purchased a new keyboard that had the cables to connect into the soundboard, when i plugged them in the volume increased and a buzzing sound was noticeable. I downgraded the soundboard to another driver and the volume went low again and the buzzing sound almost dissapeared but still there, you can notice it when you use the volume from windows, from 0 to 1 there you can notice a little buzzing sound, and my question is if its a electric failure or ai can fix it with anything else. Thank you for your support.

Answer:Sound buzzing

Many wires and cables and more chance of electrical interference. It also depends on signal to noise ratio, top notch device have it high and other ones so-so. Make sure cables are not close to power cables and other inductive stuff.

Question: Buzzing sound

Occasionally I'll be on the internet and the hard drive makes the sound it does when it reboots, then it starts buzzing- the buzzing stops once I begin to shutdown.

There was a message during bootup, something about something being greater than the BIOS.

I assume its the hard drive but I'm also wondering if it's a fan.

Any ideas? It's a Compaq P4, recently upgraded the ram and video card.

I dont think HDD will produce that kind of sound. DVD produces some noise, so do fans. There is absolutely nothing to worry about.

Answer:Why is there a fly buzzing sound on my PC?

Try replacing your cables or use headphones for a while and see if you get the same sound coming out. This way you can at least try some minor trouble shooting and weed out the issue a bit. "The great mass of people ... will more easily fall victim to a big lie than to a small one" A.H

Question: Buzzing Sound

Can anyone help? I turn on my computer and the sound works fine for about 30 second. Then all of the sudden all i get is a constant buzz, there no music or coherent sound behind the buzz just a buzz. I checked it against my headphones and the same sound is in the head phones. My speakers work fine on other computers and my ipod. i have deleted the drivers and reinstalled them, i also have updated the drivers,  I have had all the old registry cleaned out. i have taken out the old sound card and unistalled it and  put in a new one. I don't know what else i can do to fix this problem. please if anyone can help me out that would be great! thanks

Answer:Buzzing Sound

Make sure the you're plugging the cord into the correct hole on the sound card (the green one) and that it's going in all the way.

Question: Buzzing sound

Right, so I have a cable that has a headphone plug on one end (for the laptop) and an RCA AV end to plug into my receiver or amp. I get a buzzing sound everytime (with some recognisable noise). Not likely a hardware issue, but I was curious as to know whether or not someone would know the cause of this sound.

Answer:Buzzing sound

I'm not an expert in this  but maybe it's an earth problem - have you tried a different cable,  or plugging the cable in to another amp ( or another input on the same amp?)

Answer:Buzzing sound

What's your graphics card? Mine makes some noise too. It appears to be the voltage converter....

After i click a link which was sent by my friend, Then suddenly my pc fan come out so loud like buzzing sound while running the fan, I tried to off the pc and on agian, it still have it. If anybody know how to deal with this. Help pls
 

Answer:Buzzing sound on Pc fan

It could be that something (like a wire) has found worked its way near the fan and is just touching the fan blades. The fan itself could be on its way out.

I would suggest, opening up the case and starting the PC to identify exactly which fan is causing the noise. Have a look around it and make sure nothing is near / in the fan blades (clean out the inside while you are there).

Question: Sound buzzing

Hello everyone im having issues with my motherboard soundcard because i have recently purchased a new keyboard that had the cables to connect into the soundboard, when i plugged them in the volume increased and a buzzing sound was noticeable. I downgraded the soundboard to another driver and the volume went low again and the buzzing sound almost dissapeared but still there, you can notice it when you use the volume from windows, from 0 to 1 there you can notice a little buzzing sound, and my question is if its a electric failure or ai can fix it with anything else. Thank you for your support.

Answer:Sound buzzing

Many wires and cables and more chance of electrical interference. It also depends on signal to noise ratio, top notch device have it high and other ones so-so. Make sure cables are not close to power cables and other inductive stuff.

Question: Buzzing Sound

I have a Lenovo ideacentre 700-27ISH AIO.  The computer has been working fine until recently when it developed a "buzzing" sound.  I've run a hardware scan on the storage devices and they passed all tests. About the only thing left that I can think of that might cause this sound would be the fan, but there are no tests for that component that I am aware of. My unit is still under warranty. Should I file a service request? Has anyone encountered this buzzing problem and if so, what was the solution?

Answer:Buzzing Sound

 Hi fairmarketvalue ,
 
Greetings.
 
Would that be a constant buzzing noise or intermittent?
Would it also be heard in BIOS ?
 To access the BIOS restart and tap on F1  ,
 
There also would fan on the power supply unit aside from the systemboard to consider .
Is the sound coming from the back or more at the inside?
 
You can run a temperature test if the noise would also happen on a particular teperature using this .
 
Having those above check would help identify needed parts for repair .
 
You may call tech support for the recommended repair service.

Question: A Buzzing Sound

This has been an ongoing problem for the last month or so.

I've been hearing some irregular sounds from my computer lately. An unusual buzzing sound. I'm thinking that it's from the fan and the computer possibly overheating.

Also just tonight, the computer shut down by itself. I checked the power light, and the light was blinking on and off.

I wanted to know what the problem was.

I'm running an HP Pavilion 6370Z/Windows '98
 

Answer:A Buzzing Sound

Take the side of your panel off your computer case and look at your fans. You may need to clean the dust out of your computer or get new fan(s). The computer probably turned off because it over heated.

HELLO,
I have a HP t650 UK Pavilion desktop computer that has been upgraded to Microsoft Windows 7
The mother board is the ASUS K8N8X-la and the sound chip is a Realtek AC 97 Audio. All the audio works fine with the exception of the Microsoft Studio Life web cam. When this is connected to say Skype or Messenger the audio is fine and at the correct volume, but there there is permanent buzz and crackle on the speakers and earphones.
I know the web cam is ok as it works perfectly on other computers I have checked in the device manager and the Motherboard and the sound chip drivers are up to date.
I would be grateful if anyone can help me with this problem.
Thank you
Jaysto

Answer:Buzzing sound using web cam

Using the inbuilt audio in the Studio Life web cam, if you are getting the crackling sounds, my first suggestion would be to turn down the sensitivity of the web cam. As you say it works fine on other desktops, it is probably just the software on your desktop that is making the sensitivity too high (picking up background noise).

Another thought is that noise might be from your desktop, if the web cam is sitting on the desktop. Trying moving it away from the computer.

Question: Sound is buzzing?

When I change the volume using f6-f8 (which on my laptop are volumeMute, volumeDown, and volumeUp), I sometimes get this strange buzz like sound while the volume is clicking up. It will just be counting up and then go --buzz---. If I'm watching a movie or listening to music, it interrupts the music for a short time to buzz and then goes back.

Answer:Sound is buzzing?

Make sure you have the volume turned up to max on your sound volume. Then control volume from function keys.

I very recently purchased a xps 13 9350. I unboxed it last night and out of box I noticed that it would make a buzzing noise seemingly randomly. So I will list all the symptoms here and the troubleshooting I have done and maybe perhaps someone with more electrical knowledge than myself will be able to help.Symptoms
As I said there is an electrical buzzing noise coming from the top left part of the chassis, it is most audible near the escape key but it is in that general area. Escape key, the 3 key, the R key, and around the tab key.
If I were to describe the noise I would say it sounds like an electrical buzz similar to when something is shorting out or an arc is made. I would also say it is very similar to coil whine or the noise a mechanical hard drive makes when the read write heads are moving. It is also vaguely similar to the noise a cicada makes.
The noise also seems to happen randomly, sometimes it is present and sometimes it is not. The same is to be said for its intensity, sometimes the noise is VERY audible (can be heard no matter where you are in the room) or sometimes it is very quiet and can only be heard if you but your ear right next to the places I listed earlier.
Furthermore the noise seems to intensify when there is a lot of movement on the screen. If I scroll up and down quickly on a page the noise will become more present and get louder. In fact as I type this it seems to act up randomly when I press keys or it will occur even when I am not touching t... Read more

Hi all,

I recently brought a hiper 580w type-R PSU around a week ago, i have fitted it and it has been fine for a week, all of a sudden it has developed a buzzing noise coming from round the back next to the 80mm PSU. I have done some troubleshooting myself and found that if i shut down my PC there is still a small (annoying ) electrical noise coming from the PSU. I swith the main switch off from the PSU and the 80mm fan stops and the noise goes (obviously) when i swith JUST the PSU back on the noise reappears. Fan stays off.

Now if i turn my PC on the noise becomes slightly louder, it also becomes more louder when i am scrolling, mainly in Internet explorer when i am on the internet.

Is this a PSU fault? there is a 3 year warrenty on the unit so i'm not to worried if it is faulty, but i don't need the hassle of sending it back and waiting for a new one, especially if they want all the cables and stuff back!

Answer:PSU buzzing sound, is it faulty?

that buzzing sound is the capacitors or the resistors from ur PSU or from ur CRT monitor. What it does is it vibrates and creates a buzzing sound. BTW why does ur fan still spin while the system is off?!i!? To me sounds like its surged by a electrical spike and its gonna fail soon.
I would sent the PSU back A.S.A.P.

For some reason, when I booted up my PC this morning, it was going quite slow, in comparison to yesterday, and there was a strange buzzing sound coming through my headphones. I shut down my PC, and booted it up again. Then I got the message that recent Hardware or Software changes made my computer not boot. I clicked further through the options I got from then, and it booted regularly. It was still slow, and I was still getting a the sound.

I also got got a strange crackling sound through my headphones the last week while booting up (when the white text on black screen goes away, it started, and when everything was running, it stopped), but that's gone now.

I switched my headphones for my boxes, and I still got it. After some research, I came to the conclusion it might be that I'm getting "dirty power" or something, but I have no clue what that means. This is the first time this happened.

I have not changed, added or removed any hardware in my PC for the last 4 months, and the only recent application I recall installing was the video game Dragon Age: Origins, 2 days ago.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Nolton.

for a few days now my computer's not been playing songs properly, there is frequently a distorted buzzing sound over them, it seems to go on and off when different notes or tones are played.
and i've no idea what's causing the problem, whether it's because of hardware or software.
ive cleaned out the whole pc, and re-installed the sound driver (reltek high definition) but nothing has worked so far.
i dont think the tracks are damaged in any way because the audio is also distorted on games and video's as well.
it's not the speakers either becuase headphones play the buzzing sound too.

if you have any ideas on what could be the problem or what component might be causing it, please let me know

I don't know which category this question belongs to but..

Ever since a couple of days ago, there's been this annoying buzzing sound that's playing over all my media files. It doesn't always persist but seems to go on and off every 30 seconds or so. I did some searching but as the problem is very vague, I wasn't able to find a definitive answer on whether it's the hardware or what not. There HAS been a similar problem posted here back in janurary that I found with google though, and the original thread is here:

http://forums.techguy.org/multimedia/671776-annoying-buzzing-sound.html

As you can see the problem was not answered. And like the previous person, I don't think the media files were damaged in anyway as videos also exhibit the same problem. At first I thought i was because of lag caused by bittorrent, so I restarted my computer. However the problem persisted. I've run adware and virus scans dozens of times and they can't seem to pick out the problem either.

As for the suggested solutions:

What's the difference between directsound and waveout? If that's the problem, how can I change it?
As for EMI, that's probably not the case either since both my cellphone and DS lite are turned off. Please help me out if you know what's causing this problem because, as the title suggests, it's VERY annoying. Thanks in advance.
