Preferred Solution: Buzzing noise from laptop when plugged in playing games.

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.

Hello All,

I have built my own PC and I've been facing random freezing with buzzing sound issue while playing almost all games (Battlefield 3, Assassins Creed II and Revelation, CoD - MW 3, and Black Ops, Batman Arkham City and recently Saints Row 3) this freezing issue is really random and can happen anytime during gameplay.
I've updated all drivers (graphics, sound, BIOS etc). One thing to note is some of these games work without freezing for hours when I set Affinity to two CPUs but when I start playing Saints Row 3 with Affinity set to 2 CPUs the games becomes very slow and if I increase CPUs then it freezes after few minutes. I've tried to reseat the heatsink with thermal paste added two cabinate fans one blowing out and one in but this has not solved my problem.
I ran HWiNFO64 tool and saved log file of various readings while playing Saints Row 3 when freezing issue happened and I do not see any heating problem.

I would really appreciate any help to solve this issue.

The problem still exists even after Dell repaired the laptop. It took two weeks to get the repaired laptop back from Dell.

The problem is:
When I plug or unplug the charger while playing music/video on laptop, the laptop is freezing with buzzing sound for 1-2 seconds when the laptop begins charging. Even after Dell repaired the laptop, the problem still exists.
Tried installing the updated drivers, the laptop works fine only for a short period and then after some time the same freezing with buzzing sound problem comes back.
Also, if the laptop is restarted it works fine for a while and then the same freezing with buzzing sound problem comes back.

Not satisfied with the Dell and Dell repair services.

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...
I tried installing, uninstalling different version of Realtek HD Audio drivers. Whenever I'm uninstalling the built-in my I was talking about starts working, but then I restart my computer and it stops working.
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.

I finished building my first PC, and it seems to be doing pretty great for the most part. But when I was playing a game, I noticed a light buzzing sound coming from my PC after a while. I then closed the game and the noise went away after a couple of seconds. A little while later I restarted the game, and after (if I had to guess) 15-20 minutes, the buzzing noise came back. It's not super loud or anything, but definitely noticeable and kind of annoying, and so far only seems to be coming up while running a game.

(updated my PC specs on my profile to show what I'm using.)

This is a recent problem for me, my PC is only a year or so old and generally performs very well.

But just recently whenever I play a game, it randomly BSODs. It seems to happen mostly when there is some sort of cutscene or audio, although in the game I'm playing (Max Payne 3) there are more cutscenes than gameplay so it could be a coincidence. Basically it locks up, the screen freezes, and an awful grinding buzzing noise appears followed by a BSOD (uncorrectable hardware error). After rebooting, I copied the error information and it said this:

So I'm on the same setup I have always been... Nothing was changed. On Windows 7 I had no problem, on 8.1 it started and now on W10 I still can't get rid of it.
Anytime I'm in game, no matter what game, I get this weird buzzing/humming/screeching noise that won't stop. It happens both on my built in speakers of the screen I'm using (Samsung SyncMaster P2770HD) and on my headphones (Razer Kraken). I even tried to plug my Sennheiser ear-phones to see if it has anything to do with that. Still noise.
I tried switching plugs, uninstalling Realtek Audio Drivers, reinstalling Nvidia drivers, playing with all kinds of settings in game and Windows-wise. I just can't figure out what the problem is.

My specs:
i5 - 4460, GTX 970 G1, 8GB Ram, Gigabyte H97 Motherboard.
I'm on the latest Windows 10 version with the latest drivers installed.

Thanks in advance!

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

A: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.

Lenovo T430 Laptop, Window 7 sp1, 64 bit

Just today this started. I haven't had any issues before. When playing anything audio (e.g., YouTube, ZeroPunctuation, MP4, MP3, any audio) there is the occasional buzzing/static/cracking noise (kinda like what you'd hear fiddling with a headphone jack) coming from the speakers. It happens regardless of volume (hardware volume, or software setting), or whether I'm using the laptops speakers or headphones (I've tried with various headphones, including some quality BOSE) making me conclude it's not the tweeter or cone of the speaker itself.

So far I've tried updating all the platforms like Flash to see if the issue was that. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Realtek driver, disabling/renabling through Device Manager and restarting, and even using the Troubleshoot Audio Playback.

This is driving me insane as having good audio is a major component of my daily activities. Thank for the help

So recently a terrible buzzing occurs when ever I leave a web page with a video running. This also occurs (for anyone familiar) with League of Legends after the game ends and the game closes and boots back to the desktop client.

This began occurring after I downloaded RegClean Pro. I did it half by accident, half by stupidity. ALL I did with the program was let it run, it said I had X numbers of registry errors, tried to make me pay for it, I did not, and then I simply uninstalled the program.

I have no idea how to isolate the problem. I went to do a System Restore but I have only 1 restore point listed, which occurred after RegClean Pro had been installed/uninstalled.

EDIT: Also (NOT sure if this is related) but when I hover over taskbar icons now it shows a "drop down menu" style display as opposed to "window previews." No idea if this is even relevant, just digging for information .

Thanks!

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

Hello! As the title says whenever I'm playing a game it'll randomly freeze for a couple seconds and buzz/loop the current sound through my speakers. Sometimes it won't recover and I'll have to shut off my computer manually. Sometimes after a long freeze it will say Display driver crashed but recovered, I've tried updating my drivers multiple times but nothing. I'm honestly not that computer savy, I've cleaned my computer multiple times and clean started it. Works for a bit but then right back at it. It could be that my graphics card isn't strong enough for the games I play? Doubtful but I'm not sure, especially since I turn down all the graphics. It usually only occurs if I'm playing a game and have a tab open or something. Also did a computer info scan that I'll attach. Thank you for your time! Truly do appreciate any help you guys can give me.

I have an Acer VN7 791 laptop, it's almost two years old and within the last 10 or so months it's been making a buzzing/whirling noise.It only makes this noise when I'm running a game that's pretty resource intensive.I've pinpointed the noise to the front end (closest to the user) of the laptop but I can't really tell which side it comes from. It often sounds like it's coming from one or both sides. The two internal components on the left and right side, respectively, are the battery (it's internal) and HDD.I've used applications and tested both of these components. The HDD seems like it's fine but I dunno, it sometimes sounds like the noise comes from it's side of the laptop. The battery died the other day for the first time, it wouldn't charge and the Acer care problem reported the battery was "damaged due to long term use" but ever since then the battery has been fine and hold a charge. Thing is this issue had occurred for almost a year now and the battery was fine back then.The longer the use of high resource games when the buzzing is occurring the louder the buzzing seems to become.So can anyone help me pinpoint what the issue truly is? Thanks!Also, here's a video of the buzzing, turn the sound up as it's kinda hard to hear. The buzzing is slightly louder in person my phone camera just didn't record very well.https://youtu.be/TnIMyXVUFcI

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

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

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

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

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

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?

If I tilt the laptop to its side, or enable tablet mode, the sound disappears. As soon as it goes back to default position, with the bottom of the laptop flat on a surface, the noise comes back. I ran the hard drive diagnostics, both quick and extended, and it says it passed. It gets really annoying when I'm in a library, and having to use it in tablet mode.

A:Routine crashing with buzzing sound when playing video games.

All except last one showed up a WHEA error stating that there was a timeout failure of the northbridge bus between CPU and RAM. Commonly this is due to a mobo, RAM or CPU failure. Just to make sure, if you believe your system is stable enough, you can attempt updating your BIOS for your mobo as that can commonly fix things. In most cases however, this is a problem that will only be resolved by swapping hardware.

If you wish, you can run some hardware tests as followed in the order given:

RAM: Memtest86+ - 7+ passes
CPU: Prime95 - Torture Test; Blend; overnight (9+ hours)
GPU: MemtestCL - Run twice (if any of the tests work on your GPU; ATI cards will need to install the ATI APP SDK as it requires OpenCL)

All of these (excluding MemtestCL) are included in the UBCD if you prefer a Live CD environment (which is the best environment to test hardware on). Note that Prime95 currently does not work on the latest version of UBCD. Also, please provide us temps/voltages using HWInfo with Sensors only option checked. Log two 30-minute instances: one for idle, and one for high load. If you can get the system to crash during high load logging, that's even better.

Hi,

I hope I'm posting in the rite place.

So here's the situation,
Laptop : Macbook White (2.4Ghz Dual Core)
TV : SONY Bravia 42"

I prefer working on a bigger screen, hence my laptop is constantly connected to the TV Screen. I use mini-DVI to VGA adaptor for Video and M-RCA to M-RCA through the headphone jack on my laptop for audio.

When the laptop is connected to the charger, it causes a buzzing noise and disturbances (horizontal distorted lines) on the TV Screen. Disconnecting the charger completely stops all of these problems.

So far so good but this is very inconvenient as I can only work on battery power.

Is there a permanent solution so that I can keep my charger connected without getting these screen artifacts and buzzin noise from my TV?

Some ppl have suggested an inverter but I wanted some reliable advise before I start buying anything.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

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. I know its not a harddrive issue, just stating that the problem still ... Read more

Hello everyone, I recently facing problem with my CPU I think. When I start to play a game (Elder Scroll V: Skyrim) , my CPU suddenly became so noisy. I don't know if the game will crash or what will happen to it, so I just close the game and everything back to normal. No noise from the CPU anymore.

When I'm listening music, running other program or anything, my CPU doesn't have this annoying noise, but when I'm playing, the noise started.

I'm using Windows 7 Professional, a i5-2500 processor, a NVIDIA GeForce 9500GT and Realtek Audio (From the motherboard I think, because I didn't add any sound card?)

Any help would be appreciate

A:Noise from CPU while playing games

I would guess it is the fan on the Video card. Some speed up when needed(when playing games usually, or something graphic intense, to keep the card cool enough.).
I suppose it's a possibility that it is the CPU fan, but usually if it's loud enough to hear that well, it's the fan(s) on the video card.

I have just purchased my OMEN by HP Laptop PC - 17-w033 from Best Buy.  One of the reasons I bought it was the reviews I read about the low fan noise.  Well every single game I have tried the FAN Starts spinning loudly. I have changed the CoolSense settings with no change.  Regular use of the laptop and it is as quiet as a mouse.  Therefore is it the GPU that is installed or something else?  Thanks in advance for any and all help.

I am currently experiencing a loud fan noise whenever I play any games. This fan sound worries me as my previous laptop which is lower spec, doesn't produce the sort of loud sound from the fan. I went through everywhere related to system cooling and thermal framework settings in the power settings but still cannot reduce the fan noise while playing games. I hope anyone would be kind of you to solve this problem that has been worrying me these days. Below are the specs of my laptop.

A:Loud fan noise when playing games

the noise that your fan generates would mean it's working hard to cool your computer.. this is good..

unless your fan is making clicking or sounds/noises that give you the inclination that your fans are broken or somehow screeching or the ball bearings need oil or perhaps there is too much dust in the vents,

then your only option is to deal with the noise of a fan..

For some reason, Laptop manufactures these days are letting go of quality product design and pushing little tiny plastic houses with hot CPU and hard drives and Memory and big hot Video cards..

If you haven't read up on this go ahead and have a loo at Lenovo's and what they are dealing with! I also have a Lenovo laptop and the funniest story is that I literally have to have my fan blasting at full speed.. It's not really bothering me but the sound of air being pushed is there.. but it doesn't kill me.. but thats me..

If I don't run my fan at full speed, my little plastic piece of heat just turns off and doesn't perform adequately.. Your lucky you got HP which hopefully doesn't do what Lenovo does to their customers on $1000 laptops by the way! the injected major restrictions to the laptop which cause it to not be able to even use the hardware inside of it because it's too hot.. hence why my fan is running at constant full speed 24/7.. Lenovo by the way even put a restriction on the way the fan works and I can't use it the way I want to to cool my computer! So the funny story is I cut a wire th... Read more

Hello I have have installed a new Geforce Gtx 660 Ti and now when i open CC or World of Warcraft I get really bad feedback noise but if I downsize it the sound goes away if I open Itunes I can faintly hear it but not as bad as the games (wow is the worst) . it does not matter if the sound is on or off for the games I still hear the feedback buzzing noise? Geforce techs are clueless. 38 days past purchase so i guess i am stuck with this video card. I can use my old video card and it is fine NO noise at all

thanks for any help

I would like to know how do i reduce the fan noise when i play any games. I doubt its because of there are many dusts in my fan. This laptop is just 1 week old. That loud fan is annoying and worries me and i wonder is there any way i can change the settings of my fan or what do i have to do to reduce the fan noise.

I tried advanced power settings in the Intel Thermal Framework Settings and the system cooling policy and it seems like there is no difference.

I am using HP Pavilion 15 ab-071tx

My bios and windows is all up to date. Any help to the solution would be greatly appreciated thank you.

A:Loud fan noise when i start playing any games.

If new I would consider a replacement. Some laptops are just noisy, yours is pretty high end graphics wise and may need the fan to run at high speed when playing demanding games. They generally don't have the best cooling.

Do you have the latest drivers from HP site? There may even be an updated BIOS that addresses the issue.

I've noticed a high pitched whining noise that sounds like it is coming from the power supply/GPU, both being less than a month old. The weird thing is, it only makes the noise when I am playing a game, for instance if I tab out, the noise will stop and if I tab in it will start again. I've mainly noticed this on a game called League of Legends which doesn't have high requirements anyways. It's just annoying me and I'd like to know if there is a fix. I'll list some components below, ask if anymore are required.

GPU: MSI 280X 3GB Gaming Edition (Twin Frozr IV)
PSU: 800W Storm Silent

Hello! I've recently (and for the first time) built a gaming computer. For some reason, however, when playing recent and hardware-intensive games like Dead Island Riptide and Witcher 2, I get through about 5 minutes of gameplay before I start hearing a strange buzzing/stuttering noise through my earphones - accompanied by the screen freezing, making it hard to alt-tab or bring up the task manager. If I leave it in this state for too long, then the computer will bluescreen and restart, with some error along the lines of DRIVER_OVERRUN_STACK_BUFFER.

It's very strange, especially since I do not get this error on other games like Mount & Blade: Warband and even Red Orchestra 2 is fine (which is one that I think would cause problems, being quite hardware intensive itself).

Does anybody know what this error from the BSOD means, and perhaps how I may fix this error? One other thing it may be is that when swapping my GPU, i dropped it in quite a cringe-worthy fashion (if you can imagine) - so it might be this.

I'll post my specs here if this helps:

CPU: Intel i7 4770
Mobo: Gigabyte z87-D3HP
PSU: Corsair hx750
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16gb (2x8)
GPU: GTX 660 Ti

For those of you out there thinking of posting "google is your friend!111one LELELE" - I have googled the problem!

A:Help! Lenovo Y700 Static noise when playing games ...

Hi there, Baracka        -
 
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
 
I might also suggest checking with headphones to see if the sound operates normally with headphones.  If not, then it is likely the driver, or the audio chip (but more likely the drivers).
 
If it works fine with headphones, but not speakers, then maybe there is a pinched wire shorting out the speakers.
In that case, I would contact service - they should be able to fix it and would be able to identify what the problem turned out to be.  If it is just one or two random cases, then perhaps exchange makes sense.  
 
Update us how it goes.

Hi everyone,

4 months ago freezing problems started with my laptop and running chkdsk and hdd regenator repaired bad sectors and this relieved my pc health making it better than before, but not totally sufficient.

However in the past 2 months I am suffering from a new set of freezing issues which occur so often and i could not manage to solve or get any improvement. Basically, it happens
1)every 20-40mins and freezing lasts about 5minutes. if I am playing a music video on a website, then the speaker would be forcing itself to play the music for less than a minute which would be heard as buzzing, and then it will stop.
2) Same type of freezing also occurs when a game is open while all browsers and music players are closed in the background.
3) In rare occasions no freezing occurs but skype crashes during a voice call giving an error related to shockwave. I believe this could be a related problem but not sure.

here some more info:
-graphics driver is updated to latest version and downgrading back to the older versions did not help
-no disk errors could be found using chkdsk and hdd regenarator scans/repairs
-Uninstalling flash player and installing/upgrading to the latest version did not work
-cleaning cache using ccleaner, diskdefragmenting using popular softwares, or running popular computer care taker softwares did not help.
-windows 7 has the latest updates.

Hello

I've been experiencing the same crash repeatedly now, while playing any game(it's happened so far in Rainbow Six Siege, Fallout 4 and Just Cause 3) my screen will randomly lock up and there's always a loud EEEEEEEEEEEEE sound until I shut the PC off manually with the power button.

I've tried checking the event logs and there doesn't seem to be anything in there when the lock happens and the PC is completely unresponsive during the lock.

DM Log attached.

DESKTOP-81TOIO5-Fri_12_04_2015_214545_73.zip

A:Hard lock, loud noise crash while playing games.

I am having the exact same problem. Tropico 5, Prison Architect, Battle Field, Guild Wars 2 at this point.

20 minutes or so in and It freezes. The only relevant error is the critical error in the logs related to the hard reboot. I have an AMD 7790. From what I can tell it worked fine before I upgraded to Win10 but I don't want to say that for sure was the cause because I was really busy with work for 6 months and did not play any games during that time (March through August).

I have:

1) reinstalled windows 10
2) ran Fur Mark for 8 hours (no crash)
3) Ran memtest86+ for 24 hours (no errors after 12 passes)
4)removed existing AMD drivers with DDU and installed the beta drivers
5) blown out the dust from every crevice of my PC (there wasn't that much since I have filters)
6) re-seated my GPU
7) scanned for malware with malwarebytes
8)cleaned my registry with CC Cleaner

The only thing that I have not done is adjust my timeout settings in the registry because I have not seen anywhere that doing so would solve this problem on Windows 10 (seems to be a vista/7 solution)

My last resort will be to buy an Nvidia GPU and hope that there are no issues.

This just started happening yesterday and it's aggravating as all hell. Randomly, my laptop starts making a high pitched noise. I first thought it was the external speakers but finally figured out that it has to do with the ethernet cable being plugged in

I know that's the cause because when I check the back of the laptop, the high pitched noise is perfectly synched with the activity light

Has anyone heard of this happening? This has got to be the most aggravating computer problem I've ever run into.

Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forums and Welcome. Thank you for the information you have provided with what you have done with the results. Very helpful. I have looked into your HP Pavilion 15-p077tx Notebook PC and issues with performance  and slow. Here is a document to help with performance being slow.  Some of the Live tiles on the desktop can cause issues with the speeds being slow as they are constantly updating. Right clicking on them and turning them off seems to help. Make sure all the updates have been done. Here is a link to the HP Support Assistant. Just download and run the application and it will help with the software and drivers on your system if any need updating. Hope this helps. Thanks.
