PC Shuts down Loud Buzzing noise.

Question: PC Shuts down Loud Buzzing noise.

Before you say its my cooling system.....CPU is low, Fans are working, new thermal paste added, and my psu has been upgraded and replaced.
With that being said, I managed to have this issue fixed until one of the recent windows updates (im assuming because it was fine until then). I believe it reset my settings back to default.

The buzzing is in my headset, I disabled numerous nvidia audio devices that appeared to be replicated. Fixed it, not in my headset anymore.

How did I fix this? I can't remember the path I used. I over rode it somehow to not shut down with critical errors. If I can figure out where I did this, I can reset it back....scratching my head trying to figure it out. So, I came here. I know its not recommended, but it works until I can get it to the shop to figure out what's causing it. I've just been going through file after file looking for it, and my nerves are wrecked.

My PC is Windows 8.1-64 bit. 6 core-8gb ram

BTW...This isn't sleep mode, hibernation or whatnot, I've checked those already. or system recovery's already unchecked.

Question: Loud buzzing noise


I have a year-old Lenovo G500 laptop, and recently it started doing this loud, buzzing sound quite often, even when there's only one program opened. I checked CPU and disk usage the first few times it happened, but they're fairly low. I'm not really tech-savvy, so I'm not exactly sure if the sound is coming from a fan or is it HDD. I do know for sure that the fan isn't dusty, when I brought it to a tech shop they told me there's no need for a cleaning. I'm sorry if the question is stupid, but the frequent loud sound makes me worried and I can't be sure if it's just laptop's normal sound or not. Any help appreciated.

Answer:Loud buzzing noise

Can be coming from a fan, be first thought even if not dirty can be going bad, something is loose and rubbing on it, also can be power supply which also have fans and or the hard drive. Know which side hard drive is on on laptop. This is not coming from the speakers ? How is it when it is plugged in, does this only happen on a battery ?

My laptop - just over a year old now - began making this noise. I of course assume it is the fan or hard drive. I'm glad I did backup for recovery and drivers...but what steps should I take? Any suggestions are appreciated.

I posted sometime back about this noise coming from my fan and overheating. My CPU is only at 37C. Which isn't bad for 775 P4. But when I am using DVD Shrink it gets really toasty, like 50 something (probably because it uses alot of memory that I don't have). I can't seem to figure out what the source of this noise is. My guesses were my lack of memory, 256mb *yikes*. It's 74% of Physical memory usage that I am using. I don't know much about memory, but that sounds bad. I do alot of things with programs, so I was leaning towards memory, but would that really make a buzzing noise? Or, if it was my 400W power supply which has the ability to make noises like that. Any suggestions?

Posted a thread about my HD failing 2 days ago and how to back it up.

I got it all backed up successfully, and with the 500GB in there.
Weird thing though, theres this continues, pretty loud, buzzing/clamping noise.

About 6 months ago, when i purchased this 500GB from NCIX, i tried using it and it made the same noise. Then i went and exchanged it for another new one, same thing. So its not the HD itself i dont think.

Could it be the power? Iv got a 430W in there, with a 500GB HD, Dual Core 3800+ 2GB, and a Radeon EAX1800XL in there.

I didnt hear this noise with my 160GB, n the 500 in there is pretty **** loud and clampy, non-stop.

Is it the power? Is it risky? Should i stop using the computer? Or no big deal?


Answer:Loud buzzing noise from Computer

I know what a buzzing sound is, but what is a clamping/clampy sound?
I'm really not being sarcastic here, I'm just trying to better understand the sound so I can help you.

Could it possibly be a random wire too close to a fan? Have you tried opening up the case while it's running to better isolate where the sound is coming from exactly?

Hi guys

Often, when running intensive program like my games, my computer will freeze up and make a loud buzzing noise. The only way to make it stop is turning off the computer by holding the button. I can surf the web for hours etc, meaning it only happens in games. I thought it was overheating but I have a fan running by my case now, doesnt seem to help too much. I have heard it could be RAM related. I am pretty much clueless as to what it could be. Any tips advice would be very much appreciated. In case anyone asks I have ran virus/ad-aware/defrag etc etc.Thanks in advance.

For the past couple weeks I've been having trouble with a very loud staticky buzzing noise coming from the bottom left corner of my Aspire VN7-791G (left of the touch pad below the keyboard) when the machine is under load (working in game engines and playing games, mainly). I've had this laptop for a little over a year and never had this issue before. On the software side everything seems fine, I haven't noticed FPS drops or freezes/lockups or anything of the sorts. I do get an occasional blue screen but those are very uncommon after all the driver and BIOS updates (power state failure or something like that). The buzzing seems to get louder depending on the work load. If I close all active programs the noise tends to still stay constant for couple few minutes, then it dies down gradually until it's silent completely.I tried recording the sound, and when I listen through headphones it sounds a lot like the real thing (just not as loud):  Also: I haven't tried replicating this yet but earlier I was running a game on battery battery power by accident. The machine was completely silent. After a while I got a message saying battery was low, so I plugged in the charger and...instantly heard the buzzing at maximum loudness (not a gradual increase like normal). Could it have something to do with power saving settings maybe? Or more likely to be a hardware thing? T... Read more

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

Ever since I built my rig a year ago, I've been plagued by these issues:
Random freezing (often times accompanied by a loud, scratching/buzzing noise coming from the speakers/headphones)
Random restarts
Power cycles a lot before POST.
Freezes at "Preparing Automatic Repair" and PC promptly restarts automatically; sometimes freezes at Windows logo (need to manually restart)
Note that these issues don't always appear. Sometimes I can go for a week without issues. Sometimes I get 5-10 power cycles in one day. When they do happen, they cause a minor 2-3 minute inconvenience. But it is annoying since my games work is interrupted.
Things I've tried (not in order):
Set CPU speed to stock, issues still present. No problems running prime95. OC is also stable with prime95. Tested GPU with Unigine's Heaven, temperatures were fine.
Monitored temperatures during freezing using HWiNFO. It's stable, but it's also hard to simulate the conditions for freezing/crashing. It's completely random.
BIOS update to v1.9 aggravates the freezing/random restarts. v1.8 keeps freezing/restarting at startup. v1.7 is what I have and is "stable".

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

Anyone had this? Machine only a couple of months old. Just desktop usage. Has happened about 3 times now.

Suddenly makes very loud noise - more like a road drill than anything else - then crashes.

Answer:Satellite Pro L850 - very loud buzzing/drilling noise before crashing

Is this noise produced by cooling fan or HDD activity? Maybe both of them?

Of course it is not easy to say what is wrong there but I presume some background activity may be responsible for that.
Or have you noticed that some application that you use ends with system crash.

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

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

Answer:xonar d2x sound card loud buzzing noise problem

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

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

Hello all,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hi, I've had my T400 (2764-CTO) for 9 months.  It came equipped with the standard 4 cell battery and 90W adapter; I've also picked up a 9 cell battery and 65W travel charger. Here's the skinny: when I plug the adapter in to charge the battery, the laptop emits a buzzing sound for a few seconds - it's not the CPU whine issue, CD/DVD drive motor, CPU fan, or hard drive; the sound can be best described as a kazoo.  I've tried both batteries and both adapters, and can replicate the noise when the battery is at <95% (charge point), and is being plugged in. This has been happening since day 1, and I figured that it was normal.  After much searching and testing others' T400s, I'm finding that it's not. Does this "kazoo" buzzing noise sound familiar to anyone?

Answer:T400 - Loud buzzing noise when plugging in AC adapter & charging battery

Interesting that it occurs with both batteries and both AC adapters.   To be clear, the sound occurs only when the battery has less than 95% and is charging?  (We reduce the charge rate at around 95-96% to "slow down" the charging and take it easy on the battery).  
Does it matter whether the computer is on or not while charging?  Does it make the sound only when on, only when off, or in either case?
If you stretch out the cords so as to move the AC adapter "brick" away from the system, can you tell if the sound is coming from the PC or the adapter brick?   If from the PC, generally where on the PC?   Does your configuration have the CCFL or LED?
Best regards,

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).

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.

Something strange happened to me today (well the day I posted this thread). I was watching this: "" My laptop monitor broke one day so I had to connect a external monitor. The laptop monitor is plain black and doesnt work 100 (and 1)% of the time. Anyways what happened is that I watched that video then at some point the audio started looping causing buzzing and my external monitor shut down/went pure black without saying "Monitor going to sleep" or anything like that. The computer was on when that was happening. So I shut it down to stop the buzzing and the blank screen. Then I switched it on. Logged on, created a account on this website and so here is this thread. Is this normal? Should I be worried? Does this mean anything?

Answer:Computer monitor shuts down. And audio loops, causing buzzing noise.

Update your Audio driver in Safe Mode with Networking, from the PC's Support Downloads webpage for your tag number.

If no newer driver then in Device Manager uninstall and restart the PC so it reinstalls the driver.

If this isn't sufficient work through the Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 starting with establishing a Clean Boot, checking for Malware, checking System Files, and the other steps.

Hey, I've had this problem for a while that when a play a game or watch a video in any quality my computer can randomly freeze and cause a buzzing noise in my head phnes. The computer shows no indication to when this will happen and when the buzzing starts it's over. The buzzing lasts for about 3 second and then stops making the fan inside the pc the only noise. When it freezes it has no response at all and I cannot do anything but forcefully turn off or "choke" the computer. I'm writing this now after it happened twice in 15 minutes which is a new record therefore i fear it is getting worse. I got the computer for Christmas and I've had the problem since like 10 of January or so. It is no bad program that i've downloaded and i have tried to "restore" the computer from the windows 8 settings.I have the 'Hewlett Packard Envy 15 notebook' laptop with:- AMD A10-5750M APU processor- Radeon HD Graphics 2.50GHz- 800 GB RAM- 64 bit - Windows 8.1I restored the laptop for 3 days ago and it hasn't helped, I'm really in distress and i have yeat to try (and will soon) take my computer to Elkj?p (Electronics store) to have them take a look at it.I appreciate any information on the subject even a, "Yeah i have the same problem" and help will be extremly loved.

Answer:PC freezes with loud buzzing

That's a lot of RAM for a laptop or even any computer. It could be an over-heating issue but usually the computer would shut down if that were the case. Try using something like  speed fan just to make sure that it's not a temp issue. Run the program in the background and do whatever it is that makes the computer crash and note the temperatures. If not then come back to us with as much information you can give.

Every 4 to 8 hours the tower of my desktop computer will begin emitting a very loud buzzing noise. It's definitely louder than a normal conversation, and it's loud enough that it if was a TV I'd turn the volume down.

It continues until I shutdown or go to standby. When I power back on or awake from standby the buzzing doesn't start back up for about another 4 to 8 hours.

The noise occurs even my my speakers are completely off. I'm using Windows XP but I have Windows Defender and Avast running at all times, and I only use Firefox, so there's probably not a virus or something activating the internal speaker.

So what is this most likely? Is my hard drive beginning to fail? I've successfully copied several large files around to backup a few things, so it isn't completely gone. I'm really surprised at how loud it is.

Several times now, my screen has suddenly gone black and instantly my t400 makes a loud, buzzing sound. The first time this happened was while I was playing Starcraft. I believe the other two occurences happened while watching videos. I don't know if this is related to the video cards or if it's overheating, but I'd appreciate any ideas! I have updated my bios recently and yet the problem persists. Thanks!

Answer:Screen goes blank and loud buzzing

buzzing sound? that could be the inverter... do you have a LED or CCFL backlight version of the LCD?

New Inspiron 17 7779 2-in-1 with combined audio port and Waves MaxxAudio
Logitech Z130 powered external speakers.
I have noticed, if I have external speakers connected and playing music, the sound works fine except for the volume fading in and out.
But a situation has developed where if the music stops or I pause it or shutdown the player, the speakers will start producing a loud static type sound about 30% if the time.  It sounds like what might happen if a speaker was being plugged in but not yet completely seated.
Muting the sound does not cause this.
It is very annoying and means I cannot leave the system playing music if I go out of the room.
Since I have been checking the sound fading situation, I have the latest drivers.  When I plug the speakers in the popup appears and I select medium external speakers.  No problems with this part of the operation.
This could be related to just these particular speakers but I have no other wired external speakers to test.  Limited testing with headsets does not appear to exhibit the problem, but of course, they are not powered...
I am thinking, the utility which sets up the combined audio port for different devices is somehow loosing contact with the plugged in device and allowing those connections to be changed.  Resuming the music stops the noise immediately it does not reoccur during play.
If I am correct, this would appear to be a driver of whatever sets up the combined audio port..

Hi, i own my u430Touch 3 Weeks now and the system fan is real buzzing direct after starting the system, is this normal ? while the Noise comes from the upper right side (near the Powerconnector), i think this must be the Systemfan. There is no other Programm startet. any ideas please ? 

Answer:Lenovo U430Touch + loud buzzing fan

hi Adrenochrom,
Your right, the system fan is located on the right side of the unit.
- Link to picture
If the buzzing noise is loud and doesn't stop then this isn't a normal behaviour. Did you noticed this out of the box or it just happened recently?
If the issue started happening out of the box then it might be a thermal configuration in the BIOS that's making the fan spins at a high RPM (in normal conditions, the fan tries to dissipate the heat out that's comming from the CPU/GPU -- which causes the buzzing sound).
Otherwise, it's most likely a malfunctioning fan. In this case, I recommend you contact lenovo and report the problem.
Things that you can check::
1. Temperature of the system (eg. via HWMonitor or similar software)
2. CPU load (eg. via Task Manager)
3. If applicable, the Fan speed (eg via HWMonitor, Aida64 Extreme, or similar software)

So for the past week, I've had a major annoyance. Whenever I try to do anything, be it music, YouTube, gaming, Discord, or anything else that isn't sitting on the desktop or using Google, my computer often locks up several times in a short time frame. It even messes up my Discord, so I cannot speak or hear anyone. It buzzes during the duration of the freeze if there was audio playing at the time. This problem is driving me crazy, and a solution would alleviate the pain.

Here's the specs:

Answer:Short Freezes With Loud Buzzing

This sounds like a problem with your sound card or audio drivers. Most likely audio drivers. If what you hear sounds sort of like machine gun fire, then could you inform us of your current audio drivers / sound card?

I have a noise-related issue with my X220 and I wonder if someone here can confirm that it is normal. There is more electrical noise coming from my laptop than I am used to. I'm referring to the slight buzzing coming from the computer's mainboard. It varies with the load on the laptop, and happens regardless of whether it is plugged in or not. All laptops have this sound, but it would normally be very quiet and masked by hard drive noise, particularly since they both vary with load so will increase at the same time. In my machine there is an SSD so no hard drive noise, so I would expect to hear the electrical noise more clearly but I am still surprised at the volume of the buzzing. I just tried comparing it to a netbook I have by booting the netbook from a USB flash drive and then spinning down the hard drive so it was silent. The electrical noise on that is only audible if I put my ear to the keyboard. By contrast I can hear the noise clearly while just sitting at my X220 (i7 model) in a very quiet environment (when the fan is at a low speed). Can someone please confirm whether this occurs with their machine? They will probably need to have an SSD or spin down their hard drive, and their fan will need to be at a fairly low speed and put the machine under some light load. Thanks.

Answer:X220 loud electrical buzzing? Is this normal?

For the last week or so Ive been having a problem while playing Darksiders. After about 15-30 minutes of playing, my computer crashes and it goes to a black screen, along with a loud buzzing sound from the speakers.

Ive googled the issue, and what I came up with was to try using MemTest 86 and Prime95 to see if there are any hardware failures. I even ran HWiNFO32 to see if maybe my cooling was awful, and it was the cause. But the temps seem within the realm of what it should be.

Ive run MemTest 86+ for over 2 hours without it recognizing a problem, as well as running a stress test with Prime95 for around 4 hours, all without any results. I havent been able to find any issues with my hardware using these tools.

I even upgraded my driver for my Graphics card, and that didnt help any either, although it did seem to let me last a little longer before the crash.

Anyone have any other ideas?

Here is the zip of my log from my HWiNFO32.

EDIT: My Hardware specs are in my Signature.

Answer:Black Screen and Loud Buzzing Crash

Few things since the provided info so far is not much help and I will explain why:

Crash log is useless. Its 314 KB of text.

MemTest is an ok test but you can do it faster by removing one stick of ram, then swap them to see if the error repats.

Hwinfo32 info seems weird. Heat is most likely your issue. I would look for a tool specific to your motherboard to do some monitoring of the heat and see if you can log the temp when it crashes, not while simply running a test. It's when the game fires up that you are getting heat issues so you need ot monitor temps while playing.

If it's a laptop be sure it is venting properly. If it is a desktop check the RPM of the fans while running. YOu might need to replace a fan or even add a fan for additional cooling.

The buzzing from my speakers seems to be getting progressively louder. When docked, I have to lower the volume when I am not playing anything because the buzzing is loud enough to be stressful. When undocked it is a similar situation, only because the speakers are not as loud as the supplemental ones I use when the machine is docked, it is less noticeable. I recently had  overheating problems and the local shop opened my case, blew it out and put some heat absorbing gunk on the fans. The overheating is no longer an issue. However, it seems like the buzzing has been gradually increasing ever since. I am pretty unsophisticated about computer repair and diagnosis. I am wondering if I have a fan problem, a sound card problem a software problem or a "it is time to sell this laptop and get a new one" type of problem. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Dave OS Name Microsoft Windows XP ProfessionalVersion 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3 Build 2600System Model 9450GBUSystem Type X86-based PCProcessor x86 Family 6 Model 15 Stepping 6 GenuineIntel ~2326 MhzBIOS Version/Date LENOVO 7FETA4WW (2.22 ), 10/19/2007SMBIOS Version 2.4

Okay so my computer has been having this weird buzzing sound, which I think is coming from the video card but it hasn't really affected anything until now. When I started playing a game, it started making a really loud buzzing sound before eventually BSODing.

I'm still relatively newbish to computers so I have no idea how to troubleshoot so I'm sorry if I'm doing things wrong.

Here are my specs and attached are my error files:

? Windows 7
? x64
? Original OS installed was Windows 7
? OEM version
? Age of system (hardware) ? 2-3 years old?
? Age of OS installation ? 2-3 years

? CPU ? AMD Phenom II X4 940T
? Video Card ? HD Radeon 6870
? MotherBoard - H-RS880-uATX
? Power Supply ? Apevia ? 680W

? System Manufacturer - HP
? Model Number ?p6787c

Let me know if there's any more information needed. Thank-you beforehand.

Answer:[SOLVED] Loud buzzing sound and then BSOD


All of the attached DMP files are of the CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION (f4) bugcheck.

A process or thread critical to proper system operation has unexpectedly exited or been terminated.

There's a hardware problem with the boot drive, or a device driver has a bug or a critical service was stopped.

We can see from the dump -

IO_ERROR: (NTSTATUS) 0xc000000e - A device which does not exist was specified.

FAILURE_BUCKET_ID: X64_0xF4_IOERR_C000000E_IMAGE_hardware_disk

MODULE_NAME: hardware_disk


Overall, possible hard disk failure. However, it could be device driver related as well. Let's do some software related things first -

1. Update to Service Pack 1 ASAP: Learn how to install Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1)

2. In your loaded drivers list, dtsoftbus01.sys is listed which is the Daemon Tools driver. Daemon Tools is a very popular cause of BSOD's in 7/8 based systems. Please uninstall Daemon Tools. Alternative imaging programs are: MagicISO, Power ISO, etc.

3. I recommend temporarily removing and replacing Norton with Microsoft Security Essentials:

Norton removal tool -

MSE - Microsoft Security Essentials - Microsoft Windows

If the above does not help, run hard disk diagnostics:


There are various ways to run Chkdsk~

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! I am new to the community and decided to try as a last resort to post my problem specifically as I have tried an assortment of fixes from other threads that had issues similar to mine but not exactly, to no avail.
To start let me post my specs:

CPU: Intel Core i7 3770K
GPU: Gigabyte Windforce GTX670 OC
RAM: Corsair Vengeance Blue C9 1600 DDR3

HDD: Western Digital 1TB 7200RPM 2x500 disks.
To start with I find this problem very peculiar since from what I have read on other threads it would appear to be a hardware issue. I find this hard to believe because as of last week the computer was working better than fine. It was fantastic! I was playing all my games and getting frame rates above 60FPS on everything at 1080 resolutions. Prior to this however I had been experiencing crashes on the game Battlefield 3, which then started making my other games Crysis 2 and Shogun 2 crash as well. What I had done to remedy this particular problem was to throw in a couple new entries into regedit, update to the latest REALTEK drivers for the onboard sound, and fiddle with the sound settings in the mixer as to the specific instructions of those on the Battlefield forums. These steps combined worked like a charm and I enjoyed a blissful week breathing the biggest sigh of relief over the idea that at the very least nothing was broken in my machine, it had simply been a driver issue.

I found this thread using Google, looks similar.

Answer:Monitor goes black and speakers make loud buzzing sound

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hello there,i really need you help !

So i bought a new graphics card,the Radeon R9 290 and i have the following problems

1)When i post up the pc instead of the BIOS image i am getting those random artifacts

2) In random times my monitor freezes with a buzzing sound coming from speakers and it wont respond until i force restart.This might happen once a day,twice a day,10 times a day or it might not happen for 2 days.It mostly happens when i am gaming or watching movie,but it also happens when i am just browsing.

I have ruled out the RAMs cause i tested them a lot,and i have also ruled out anything else related to hardware because when i am running with my old graphics card the computer runs fine without any problems.

So i decided to RMA the card.They called me after two days and asked me to go there,so i went.They told me that the card runs fine,there was no artifacts in post and no freezing when they tested 4 different benchmarks and 2 different games.So they gave me back the card.He told me that the problem could be my PSU or that i run the card with VGA to HDMI adapter(Analog to Digital).

So i really don't know what to do now,what would cause this problem ? Is it possible that cause my monitor does not have Digital input(HDMI,DVI)so i have to use VGA To HDMI adapter this could be the problem ? Or it's simply my PSU ?

Microsoft support said it was a heat problem so I took the cover off, gave it a full clean with canned air. However the problem still exists. As i type this with Netflix on in the background the audio is freezing slightly. I clicked to proceed to the next episode and it locked up with the circle spinning but no movement in the mouse, keyboard etc. Any other ideas?

Answer:Loud buzzing from speakers, and freezing even after restoring to factory settings

Hello Welcome to TSF!!! Clean out all dust out of any air vents on the side and under the laptop with a can of air. Update all drivers Graphics, Audio, and wifi adapter from the manufacture of your computer's website. Update Silverlight and Adobe Flash Player.

Also if the laptop is not under warranty if possible take off the panel underneath the laptop and clean out any dust around the heat sync. Your issues could be an over heating problem.

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.

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
Have you checked to see if the card is loose?  If it isn't then a graphics card shouldn't be making this kind of noise which means it needs to be replaced.  I would recommend you contact Lenovo Support for warranty assistance.  I would see if Lenovo can send you a replacement card instead of sending the whole system in.  You can then send back the noisy one to Lenovo.
Lenovo Support - USA1-877-453-668624 hours a day 7 days / week
An alternative is check with your local Best Buy store to see if they are an authorized service center. You could then walk it in for the replacement.
Here is a link to your model's Hardware Maintenance Manual.  It will explain how to replace the graphics card if needed.....

A friend of mine recently started to have speaker/microphone issues (sound would cut out at times for her speakers and mic, had to position herself perfectly) and eventually the speakers completely died. She got a new set (Earbuds + microphone on the cord) and that worked fine for a few hours. Eventually, there was a buzz on her end and her volume (voice) got considerably lower. The buzz wasn't that bad, so we just changed the volume/mic volume to fix it, and the next day it was gone.

Sadly, at the end of the next day, the mic started to buzz again, except worse this time. It was nearly impossible to hear her over the buzzing sound, but we both went to bed soon after that. The next day was the same thing, but again it got worse. This time her voice would sometimes distort into static/robotic sounds. When it was loud enough, it was at least somewhat understandable.

On day 5, and her mic started off buzzing today. She switched to the old microphone (plugged the yellow cord into the yellow jack) and her voice was fixed for a few hours.

So this problem has been going on for awhile. Thought completing a system upgrade I had been planning would do the trick but of course not. I can play games from anywhere from 5-15 minutes before my computer completely locks up. Virtually any game, I've tried them all: BF3, WoW, Far Cry 3, MW3, etc. Black (sometimes green) screen, loud sound coming from the speakers as if it is frozen on a gunshot repeating, and also if you watch the video card it ceasing functioning.

It should be noted that this is the second video card this has happened on, first on an old 5750 and now on my brand new 7850, so I know it's not the cards. I just [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]installed[/COLOR][/COLOR] Windows 8 along with a new SSD drive, so in the last 24 hours I have completely wiped my old system, started up good as new again with a new OS, and still this keeps happening.

Being that my OS, HD, and SSD are brand new and fresh, the only critical error listed is from when the game crashed, below:

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.

Thanks for any replys.

Answer:Buzzing noise

Hi there @Callity,Welcome back to the HP Support Forums! I understand that you are getting a buzzing noise when you are playing audio or communicating to someone on Skype. I am happy to assist. Since it is also happening when you are using Skype to communicate, the functionality of the microphone is also being affected, by whatever the root cause is. Give this a try: HP PCs - Resolving microphone problems (Windows 10, 8) Another thing you can try if the previous does not help, is go into Device Manager, RIGHT click on the entry for the IDT and then click "Uninstall". But do not check the box to uninstall the drivers. Then restart the PC. When Windows starts again, it will detect the sound device and reinstall it in Device Manager and may put it on a different shared IRQ. This is assuming that the Audio noise being added to the sound device is coming from interference from another device.  Please let me know how that works for you, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.

Sorry if this isnt the right section, seems like it though.

So recently I bought a new headset, the Roccat Kave 5.1 to be specific. My motherboard has onboard 7.1, but the problem is, is that I want to be able to have my speakers plugged in as well, regardless of if they play sound or not when my headset is active. I have a 2.1 speaker setup, so I have one plugged into the green and one in the black. Problem is is that I dont have room for my headset, being it has 6 plugs. So I went out and bought another sound card specifically for my headset.

Issue is, is that I cant have sound playing from both my speakers from the onboard jacks, along side of my headset (which I would just mute when not in use, and vice versa with the speakers). So as a workaround, I added a shortcut to the speaker setup on my desktop and whenever I want to use the headset, I switch the default device to my sound card, away from the motherboard.

But because my sound card did not have a pink jack for the mic, I have to have it plugged in to the motherboard. It works, but when I am using the steam chat, or even vent, there is this steady buzzing noise. Not loud, and it only seems to be noticeable when I go into a game. Idling on the desktop it doesnt do it at all. But my friend complains about it (despite the irate amount his mic makes from being so sensitive) and it does bother me as well.

So any ideas on how I would go about eliminating this buzzing noise?

Answer:buzzing noise

First of all, try testing to see what is producing this "loud" noise.
It probably is the hard drive since they tend to do this.
It could also be the fan that is broken or dirty or something else.
Try unplugging the hard drive, turning on computer, listen for noise.
Keep doing until you find your problem, then we can see more in detail how to fix that problem.

Hi My computer just started making a buzzing sound (30 - 50 Hz or so). When it is cold, the fan is not running and there is no noise. When it warms up, the fan starts slow and noise is faint. After it runs for ten minutes or so, the fan speeds up and the noise is quite loud. I noticed sevaral fan noise problems apparently associated with BIOS upgrades, but I have the latest BIOS etc. This just started a day or so ago, and I suspect mechanical problems with the fan. Does that make sense, how do I replace the fan and where can I get one?  / ricMessage Edited by Ricaz on 01-18-2009 06:20 PM

Any help? Fix?

Answer:PSU- Constant buzzing noise

Power supplies are still "live" and are putting out some voltages even when the PC is powered off.

Several possibilities, the first being the power supply is loose in the mounting. The second something internal to the power supply loose, a transformer vibrating and finally the power supply "vibration" is causing something else in the PC case to buzz.

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

I've had my Hauppauge for a little over a year now and I've never had this issue before. I know for a fact that every cable is plugged in correctly, considering I've taken pictures of how it should look and have since then stored them on my computer. The noise is only heard when I plug in the white and white-red audio cables into my Viore HDTV. I'm trying to use the HDPVR with my PS3 as I've done countless times in the past. The cables I'm using for the PS3 are component as I've been recording gameplay for Playstation titles on it and have no need for the higher resolution. So, suggestions?


After having tried it with my Wii, I've come to the conclusion that the buzzing only occurs when either the white or black-red cables are plugged into the TV. A discoloration is still seen, however. Nothing is fixed, as I need call cables plugged in for everything to get picked up on playback. Also, I should note that I've used component cables with the TV through my 360 and this was done without the HD PVR, at which time I saw no discoloration, nor was any buzzing present. So, the issue has to lie within the capture card itself or the cables that came with it.

Answer:HDPVR Buzzing Noise?

Try new cables, if they don't work then it sounds like you need a new card.

The problem also occurs when I try to shutdown the computer manually, it hear the click, screen goes black but all the insides stay powered. Last time i could also hear a buzzing noise through my headphones, probably the audio signal turned to shreds.
I run Windows 7 on:
Antex-HCG 750 Watts
Probably some Intel H58 motherboard.
It's an improved Acer Aspire M7811.

First of I'd just mention that Ive recently got a completely new system and this problem has started happening again! The only similarity is that both of my graphics cards were NVIDIA.

Basically my PC will randomly freeze and a loud buzzing sound will occur if im using any sound related program, if not it will just silently freeze and can last hours when it is idle without a black screen or restart.
As i said this was happening towards the end of my previous computers life (6 years) so after upgrading (Packard Bell ixtreme M3730) when it started happening again i was confused. The only thing I can vaguely think of is my power supply, as in the plug sockets or extension lead im using?

Im at a total loss here as last time it eventually screwed my whole pc up and it wasnt even usable after a while. It can happen at any time... 2 minutes after the pc is turned on or 12 hours, Playing a game, Listening to music, Browsing the net or as i mentioned just sat idle on the desktop with nothing running.

Any help or ideas would be GREATLY appreciated and I can run a DxDiag if that would be of any help?

Have tried tracking it down but seems to be nowhere in particular.

Answer:Irritating buzzing noise

It could be Windows grinding a hard drive endlessly for any of several pointless, counter-productive reasons, and some hard drives seem to do periodic recalibrations or self-tests or something all by themselves, which I've observed to continue even after ejecting a docked drive from Windows. These things can last from seconds to minutes, and I can imagine it being described as "buzzing". Also check that fans are securely mounted and momentarily stop them one by one to rule them out.

Hi all,

If I use Skype's test call service and record my voice, I hear it. If I instead just record my voice with Windows Voice Recorder, all is fine. So it seems to be a problem with Skype.

I've tried different headphones, same problem.

If I use the same headphones in Skype on my Android phone, all works fine.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling skype, same problem.

Dell Tech support installed a completely new motherboard and audio jack, same problem.

If I use a headset with a USB connector, all is fine.

I participate in many Skype meetings so this is a problem.

Whenever I start playing a game, no matter what game, I get weird buzzing feedback from my headphones or speakers, depends on what I use when I play. They both make the same noise at the same places (certain menus, while in-game, etc).
I also can't make my built in mic on my earphones to work. I believe that's all somehow connected since it worked flawlessly on Windows 7.
I'm starting to regret installing 8.1 but I don't wanna go back because I'm lazy. I'm going off topic...

On the other hand, I have a good headset by Razer, which the microphone of these headphones DOES work. I don't know what to make of this.
Anyway, in conclusion: Weird buzzing feedback while in-game, earphone's mic doesn't work, headphone's mic does. I really just wanna solve the buzzing feedback thing, thanks.

Plug the headphone into the rear GREEN speaker jack and see if you still get the noise. If its OK there, there is something wrong either with the front panel assembly in the case or possibly the wiring or how its routed to the HD Audio connection on the motherboard.

Hi all,
I have been having a problem with my PC for some time now. The display regularly freezes and it is usually accompanied by a loud buzzing through the speakers.
This usually (95% or so of the time) happens when I am gaming, most notably playing XCom 2, Endless Legend and World of Warcraft. other "simple" games like FTL and similar don't seem to generate these hangups.
I am happy to change the defective component, assuming there is one, but I don't really know which is the most likely candidate.
I have tried GPU benchmarking programs to stress-test the GPU, but it seems to cope without any problems.
The temperatures were running pretty high this summer, I live in Cyprus and the GPU and CPUs hit 85 degrees C on occasion.
I will list my speccs below and try to video the next time it freezes.
When it freezes I have to press the reset button to hard restart the PC and then occasionally I have bootup issues. Not sure if that is related to the hardware issue or just because I am having to restart the PC in that way.
I have recently upgraded to Win10 and moved my OS onto an SSD. I installed Win7 from fresh and then upgraded to Win10 on the newly formatted SSD
Using MSI afterburner and turning the fan speeds to maximum seems to make the freezes occur less often, but not by a huge amount.

Answer:PC Freezes with buzzing noise

To me it sounds like a cooling issue. Is the front fan with the power cables facing inside the case? That shows it is "in-taking" the air and the fan at the rear should be opposite showing as exhausting air.
The buzzing noise could be a fan overworking possibly. Open the case and give a thorough cleanout of everything including the CPU cooler fins, GPU card and fan, and check the flow of air. Two case fans working in the opposite air flow directions can be disastrous for your cooling.

I have my keyboard plugged into my Audio in which seems to buzz (Tested) but i don't know why, the computer has been fully custom built and is only 1 - 2 weeks old.
It started randomly and it's really annoying, could anyone help me out?

Thanks in Advance.

Answer:Buzzing Noise - Can't find what it is.
