High-pitched Noise from Speakers

Q: High-pitched Noise from Speakers

My PC (Win XP, HP Pavillon Desktop a1340n) has been repaired several times, and the last time I got it back, I plugged the speakers to the sound card (not onboard sound) and there's a high-pitched noise coming from the speakers. It's not a mic problem I don't believe, since the line-in is muted. I left the speakers unplugged for a while and when I went to plug them in the noise wasn't there, but it's recently returned.

What should I do to remedy this?

Do you have any other electrical equipment, wireless router etc near your speakers? If so, try turning them off one at a time and see if there is an improvement.

A:A high pitched buzzing noise on my PC speakers

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

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

To the one who offers help god bless.

I own an HP Pavillion DV1540ca laptop that is just under one year old. At about 10 months of age, I started noticing a high pitched, irritating humming noise. What sparked it, I do not know. It is a piercing high pitched toned that is very consistent and the same note every time. It turns on when the laptop is operating at a higher level (eg. running a movie and an audio file at the same time). It is possible it is related to the harddrive spinning or the fan spinning.
However, I do not believe the humming noise is a result of the an inefficient fan or rattling of the casing because when I plug my laptop into my sound system, the humming (unfortunately) comes out of those speakers too, almost proving it's not a rattling and maybe even a software problem.

I sent it in 3 times through staples, 2 of which went to HP, none of which fixed the problem. Staples said they couldn't hear it (although upon start up I showed them the problem), HP replaced the fan the first time (and probably didn't test it...), and lastly, HP replaced the bottom casing, and the main board. All to no avail. I gave specific instructions on how to obtain the hum and I have gotten my laptop back 2 months later in the same condition in which I sent it in.

Now it is Canada day weekend so contacting HP is out of the question, and I think I will talk to some real people who can help me out.

Please offer any advice you can give. I'... Read more

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

A:Speakers making high-pitched buzzing noise.

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

I have a Toshiba Sat Pro U300 and the system itself seems to be working perfectly well. About 3months ago, my laptop began to make a noise, an unbearable constant high pitched noise. The only time that the noise stops is when the laptop is off and for a very brief period when windows starts up. The noise seems to come from the left speaker, but it continues whether I mute the speakers or not. As I always use a speaker connected via a jack cable for audio output, the fact that the speakers didn't work didn't really bother me, but I HAD to stop that sound or I would have thrown the laptop out of the window.
I looked on plenty of forums which all suggested disconnecting the speakers from the motherboard, but I din't really want to have to open up my laptop if I could help it. Since then, I managed to disable the speakers using the 'Hardware' tab of the 'Sounds and Audio devices properties' menu of the control panel.
It was such a relief to find that there was no longer a loud, high-pitched noise. However, it seems to have disabled all sounds, including audio output through a jack connection.
I need to have sound on my laptop but when I turn the speakers back on, the beeping begins again. I am pretty good at finding causes of problems on my own computer and finding solutions and believe me I've tried. It seems that there isn't much information out there about this problem.

If someone could please help me with this, I would great... Read more

Hello forum, first of all, I posted this at 'sound', not sure if it's the right place, please move the topic if it's not. Anyway, here is my problem: my Hp Pavillion g6 has been producing a high pitched noise from the moment I bought it (about a year ago), I throught I couldn't do anything about it and thus gave up at first, but recently I found this: http://asusnoise.blogspot.nl/ , It's a discription for ASUS laptops of how to solve problems with a high pitched noise coming from the laptop. I throught: 'the hell of it, even though it's for ASUS laptops, let's give it a spin'. And guess what? The moment I did the last step (disabling idle processor), the sound stopped. So it's all good in the end? not really.... With this solution the laptop's fan is going berserk, (probably because the processor is always running at max with 'idle processor' disabled) and switching one annoying sound for another ain't really a solving grace as you'll probably understand.  After this I went searching online for another solution (because from now on I had  the confidence that it CAN be solved after hearing it dissappear) and found only this: http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c00965412 . Sadly I don't have this option in my BIOS and I have a feeling it's similair to the idle processor solution anyway. Btw, when starting up the laptop and when accessing the BIOS the sound isn't there either, like you'd expect since it's apparantly a process. S...

Does anyone know what would cause my hard drive to make this high pitched shrill sounding, almost alarm-like, noise???? It does it occasionally and I cannot connect any certain action to it's happening. It definetly is coming from my hard drive, not the speakers. Sometimes it occurs and then overything kind of freezes up and I can't even shut it down, I have to just hit reset. I recently had a new hard drive installed with more space because my pc tech friend told me that was probably the reason, not enough room. But, now I have 30 GB with only 1 GB used, so that's not it. I also had a new fan put in but that wasn't it. Like just now--it started again--out of the blue--my cursor just hesitated and I knew it was coming and then it started. Any ideas? It's driving me crazy!! It's loud and makes you want to scream! Even my dog leaves the room! Help! Thanks! Angie

Basically, I just bought a whole load of new computer parts to build into a PC for my brother (christmas gift). I've done it countless times, but this time I'm getting some bizzare problems. I'll list the specs first.

P4 3.0E

512 RAM

ASUS P4P800 SE motherboard

Thermaltake 400w Powersupply.

Radeon 9600 Pro.

120 Gig Seagate SATA HD.
Now, with the stock powersupply *Came in the case, not the Thermaltake* I plugged it into everything and the computer booted and ran fine EXCEPT the PSU had a burning smell that was not to my liking (300w). So I put in my 400w Thermaltake Powersupply and it makes this odd high pitched noise when it's on the on position at the back, but the computer itself not switched on. Yet, if I lay the computer on its side, it runs and the sound goes away... EXCEPT if I plug in the keyboard, it makes the sound again and the computer doesn't boot when the sound is on. I *KNOW* the power supply works. What could be the problem here? I'm seriously stumped =/ All the components seem to be functioning as they should, but there's no way a 400w Powersupply should be overloaded like that.

Thanks, in advance.

I have a set of turtle beach Earforce PX21 headphones that I bought for my PS3. My PS3 crapped out on me and I didn't really play games on it anymore any way and decided to use the headphones on my PC. When I hook them up I get a high pitched noise coming out of them the whole time. I didn't get that noise when I used it on the PS3. I have an Asus P8Z68-V Pro board and I'm just using the audio from it. I don't have a separate sound card. I've hooked them up directly to the board, I've hooked them up to front of my case(which has a plug for the headphones, and my keyboard has a setup for hooking in the headphones and they all have that noise in them. If anyone could help I would appreciate it.

Hello everyone, I'm using AMD FX-8120 (125W) with Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3. I've been using this CPU on the MB even on the F3 bios version, even though the CPU is not officially supported (only the 95W version, and only from F7a bios). So here is the problem, I ran OCCT test and after about 10 minutes or so, there is a constant high pitched noise coming from somewhere around CPU area, which lasts for around 30 seconds then stops. When that happens, I can hear the CPU fan slowing down, and temperatures decreasing which would normally point to throttling (the temps are very low, so it's not that). After 30 seconds it just comes back to normal, the test is still running and after a few minutes it happens again etc. However, the CPU usage, frequency, and voltage all stay unchanged (I've checked in OCCT, CPU-Z, and AIDA64 at the same time), and that is a bit confusing since I don't even know what's happening. Could be some safety instructions from the mobo because of the high TDP processor? At some point I tried overclocking, and I got to 3,9GHz with the stock voltage, but I can't go any further, even with the voltage bumped to 1.43V, but that's not my primary concern (even though it could be that I got a bad cpu example). I just mentioned this because the problem could be related, as there could be compatibility issues, but the CPU is working fine, while it shouldn't work at all, considering the mobo manufacturers compatibility list!?

It's inaudible if there is other background noise (from a TV or music) but in a quiet place like the library, the noise drives me up the wall. Is there anything I can do about this?

I just purchased a Dell 2330 All-In-One, and the computer is emitting a high-pitched noise. It's extremely annoying. Does anybody know how to fix this problem? 

A:2330 All-in-One High-pitched noise.

Can you provide some additional information?  
1.  Does your system make the noise as soon as the system is turned on?  Is the system touching something that is making a vibration?
2.  Is a disc in the optical drive?  If so, does removing it make the sound go away?
3.  Can you describe where the sound is coming from?
4.  Do you recall what, if anything, you were doing when the sound began?  For example installing any new software (especially third-party software) or did you connect any new hardware to the 2330.
5.  Have you updated your software?  Have you restarted your system?
6.  Was the system purchased directly from Dell or someplace like Best Buy?  
If you're unable to isolate where the noise is coming from, I'd recommend taking the system to an authorized service provider.  If you're not comfortable tinkering with opening the system (who'd want to do that on a newly purchased computer?), take it to a service provider.  If it's newly purchased from Dell or authorized seller... you're covered under the hardware warranty.  Please provide more info if you can.  Without more information, no one can make an informed recommendation how to fix "noise."

My laptop started making a high pitched noise every time the keyboard backlight is on - this issue began as soon as I unboxed it. In my excitement of receiving the latop, I chose not to care but over time this issue has become increasingly annoying. It hasn't gotten any louder but every time I need the backlight on (I keep it off most of the time due to the noise) it;s frustrating. Also, if I have an external screen (e.g. TV or monitor) plugged in, the issue will sometimes reverse and the noise will only occur when the keyboard backlight is off... Any suggestions as to why this may be OR ideally, how to fix this?! I fell gutted knowing I spend close to $2500 for a laptop that squeaks when I have the keyboard light on...  On another note... sometimes the scroll function on the mousepad won't work (when you use two fingers on the tracker to scroll) and I have to use the pull bar on the side of the screen. This isn't as big of an issue to me, but is pretty annoying sometimes too... Any help would be great!

I bought my Yoga 700 about a year and a half ago and up until about a month ago it has been working without a hitch. It randomly started making a very high pitched noise that I thought, at first, only occured when I plugged in my headphones because it was extremely loud when I wore them. However, I soon realised it was also coming from the built-in speakers in my laptop but at just a quieter level. It does not happen when I have my volume on mute but any louder than that and it turns on. It is particularly loud when any audio is playing (eg. youtube and spotify). Does anyone have any solutions? I've tried reinstalling my realtek audio drivers, changing my microphone and speaker settings, etc but nothing seems to be working. I would be so greatful if anyone had any suggestions because I'm someone who adores listening to music and watching videos and it makes me very upset when I cant do that. Thank you

I've noticed, recently, that my computer makes a high-pitched sound, but there's more to it than that. It only seems to appear whenever the monitor is displaying a large amount of white or bright pixels. I'm talking about having notepad open, visiting this website, anything that uses bright colors. This is by far the most weirdest thing I have come across, yet. Even more so than my browser disappearing when I change it into windowed mode. Can you give me some tips on what I can do on this really strange case? Thanks in advance.


EDIT: Actually, it does something different. The monitor kind of "gets used" to the pixels on the screen, and when the colors drastically change (i.e. opening up other windows with dark colors), I get the noise again. So, now it's "used" to the bright colors. If I visit my darker website, it starts making the noise, again. So, what do I do about this?

I recently got a replacement XPS 13 due to my first one having issues with high-pitched noise coming out from somewhere inside. Technicians and Customer Service couldn't point out the culprit so they replaced the laptop altogether. And now I am having the exact same issue on my replacement machine. I see from different forum posts that this issue was discovered as early as May/June 2012 and it is still out there. I assume this might be "standard", but people don't notice it due to the frequency. 
For such a premium machine with a pricy tag on it (the model I got: i7, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD (1080p edition btw) was priced at NOK 10495 with standard options) you'd expect such issues to be non-existant, if not fixed by now. 
I LOVE the XPS 13 in every aspect possible; the lightweight construction, premium feel and solid performance. But I'm often in very quiet areas with this machine, and the noise drives me insane. (I'm a student)
What to do?

Hi Karl Sindre Baath Engelstad,
I am sorry about the frustration. I suggest that you flash BIOS from the following link:
Note: While flashing BIOS connect the Ac adapter and make sure the battery has minimum 15% charge as this needs uninterrupted power supply. Do not use the system till it restarts and comes up to the desktop.
In case issue persists even after flashing BIOS to the latest version, kindly send me a private message with the system service tag. Click on my name and click Start Conversation to send me a private message.

Hey guys

Need some support so found this forum, hopefuly it will help!

For a few months now i've been having a high pitched squealing from my PC case.
I've tried to hear what it is, changed PSU and its still continued, doesn't seem to be a fan as i've stopped them with my finger and it continues.. or would it anyway?

I've thought maybe its one of my harddrives but can't pinpoint it with my ears.. weirdly enough.

Strange thing is it does it on certain things.
For example Emule, if emule is on my taskbar and i click it to maximize, i'll get the squeal for a second, same with maximize and minimize, but not when I maximize it from next to the clock.
Also recently I installed Virtual Pool 3,
In a window the squealing noise will go on constantly while its my turn yet when the computer player has their turn it doesn't... this doesn't happen in full screen at all.
It does also happen randomly during the day, just a random squeal sometimes quiet but then may escalate and be loud, but end up stopping and coming back. Odd practice I know but sometimes i'd kick the PC case and it would just stop.. or lift it up and move it a few inches and it would stop also, but of course come back later.

It really makes no sense to me! Emule is on a different drive to VP3 too..

I'm just chucking info at your guys hoping you can help me out.

So i've had this computer for about a year (Windows 7) now and although its specs are falling off it does what i want it to do, basically last generation gaming such as "League Of Legends". around 4 months ago i first encountered this problem when running a video game or even just watching a youtube video, basically anything that would be using the graphics card above basic capacity would cause it to freeze and a high pitched loop would come through either my headset or speakers depending on what i have plugged in.

The problem has come and gone, i had a lapse of around a month where it didnt happen this was after a move of house but i had already tried cleaning the inners for dust with compressed air, regardless the problem has returned.

I have looked around online and found other problems similar however the jumble of information has not lead me to a conclusion or a solution.

i would very much appreciate anyone who has solved the problem or someone with the knowledge to diagnose it and help solve to provide as much insight as possible. Thanks alot

A few weeks ago I noticed a high pitched noise from my PC speackers. I checked them found the noise was being picked up from the computer. I added a sound card to move the wires farther away, but it did not help.

I isolated the noise in the upper left hand corner (by using a paper towel tube). I check all fans and they are not the problem. I swapped out the Power Supply, and it the noise was still there. It is a very high pitched noise like a ringing in your ears (drives me nuts!!!). It seems to e coming from right around the CPU (again I check the fan, and it is not the problem).

As of 2 days ago, I have started getting Boot up problems. I power up the PC and everything runs, but I get no Post test Beep, and windows does not load. I cycle the power a few times, and eventually I get the beep and it works. (so now I need to leave the PC on full time with this noise!!!).

Any suggestions? This is an older PC (2 years or so), and I use it to house some applications, and store file on my network. Here are the specs:

Athlon 1300
768 MB PC133 RAM
Geforce FX 5200
Diamond 5.1 Sound card
Chaintech AJA7 MoBo
350 Watt PS

Please help!!!!

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
Mobo: MSI B75MA-P45 MATX
CPU: i7 3770 3.4Gh/z (oced to 3.9)
RAM: 16GB Kingston HyperX Blu

A:High pitched noise only when playing games?

Welcome to SF. Could the noise be coming from the Twin Frozr?

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

A: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

Hey, I'm getting some sort of feedback from my speakers. It seems to only happen when there is no music/sound playing. Where does this come from? Is my sound card picking up feedback from moving parts inside the box? Is there a conflict with the onboard sound device (if so, how do I disable this or even check to see which one is "running the show")?

Things I did since the last time I can remember not hearing feedback:

Upgraded motherboard ASUS A7N8X Deluxe
Added wireless headphones (nice ones from Sony - about $180 - but not sure of the model)
Upgraded to WinXP Pro from 2000

Anyone out there have ANY ideas?

A:High pitched sound from speakers?

Hi there, hopefully someone can help. So far I have not been able to diagnose the problem, maybe someone out there can.

even at the lowest volumes, i have a high pitched whistle coming from my speakers. As you can probably imagine this is highly annoying.

so in my attempt to find out what could be the problem i have changed the following components.

Processor, Power supply, Sounds card, Speakers, Video Card, Memory, Operating system, Network card, Cable modem, DVD-RR, heyboard, mouse and Heatsink

so, apart from the HDD, I have changed everything inside this machine and its effectively another machine entirely and its still whistling.

Ive tried muting various inputs (and all of them) but the whistle remains. The only time it goes away is when i mute the speakers.

any ideas at all?

My laptop seems high notes. When the laptop is plugged in it is all good. If the laptop is running on battery it seems different high-pitched sounds. It is very disturbing because I work in silence. I checked if it is not a problem with the screen, but it's hard for me to judge. When the screen is turned off, and connected another monitor that everything is okay. It is independent of the operating mode and brightness. Squealed as I work without a cable. Maybe it's the fault of the power supply? In my opinion, the hardware is faulty, but if the complaint is accepted and the error is corrected? Laptop has three days ... Sorry for my english... PS: This is not hdd for 100% I konw how it sound...

My laptop is 6 year-old (Hp pavillion zt3019ea) and for few weeks now, has started to make this high pitched noise (like a mosquito!) only when connected to the charger.
I replaced the charger with a new one.Same thing. Then that new charger (8 days-old) died yesterday.

I thought I needed to get a new battery but at the same time is it really worth it for a 6 year-old laptop? (the hard drive has been replaced in March)

Thanks for your help!


A:High-pitched noise when laptop connected to charger

For future reference dont ever buy hp again. And the charger will keep dieing and yes a new battery is a good idea.
If you want a new laptop i reccomend an acer timelinex for 800$

Hi, I'm having a problem with my 8800GTS video card, it seems that after I boot up the computer, minutes after going into windows, something in the computer makes a high pitch sound and the screen becomes extremely distorted, I'm unable to do anything on the pc and I have to reboot. I've checked the temperature of the video card with ntune, and it remains under 50C. The fan in the video card stopped working a bit ago, and I rewired it to run from the power supply. I believe this keeps it running at 100%. My power supply is 450 watts, but it did come with my case, so I'm not sure its the best quality. Would this be a power supply issue? Unfortunately I don't have another pc to check the equipment in. Any help would be great.
P.S. I don't think I can return this one, as I just took it off my friends hands, and of course the rewiring doesn't help in that department.

A:Video card high pitched noise and artifacts

What PSU do your have?

450watts is right on the edge to power such a card - and not exactly recommended.

A low-quality PSU will have problems.

Need your brand and model of your PSU. It has that info on the label. If you want, provide stats on its 12v rails.
