Q: computer making strange noise when playing youtube videos and startup.

hey everyone, so my pc is making a very strange noise when playing youtube videos, or any kind of flash videos, they also play slower. The noise is like some kind of distortion and I hadn't heard something like that. This also happens when I start my pc but only for a while.
I tried reinstalling the audio driver but nothing happened.
my laptop is a Toshiba satellite m55

any help would be appreciated!!

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

I am new on here and still figuring out how to navigate the forums, so I apologize if I'm posting a question that has already been asked (also english is not my first language so bare with me haha). I can't find any article/forum that explains my problem so I am posting here hoping to finally finding out what is causing this sound and how to fix it.

The sound happens almost always when I access my second HDD in windows explorer. Sometimes it happens when my PC is working harder than usual (HD streaming for example) and sometimes (not so often) seemingly random or when I am not even using my PC. It is hard to explain but it is a quick high pitched spinning sound followed by what I can only explain as a clicking sound. It is very quick only about 2 seconds I would say. Previously while playing The Sims 4 the same sound happened right before the game always froze/crashed.

I only know a few things here and there about hardware components, just the basics... I have read somewhere about hard drives "spinning down". Does this mean the drive temporarily shuts down and starts back up when you access a file from it? Or what does it mean? Could this be what is the problem? Or is it something else? I don't want to take my PC in if it is a problem I can fix myself, I am pretty good at following instructions to troubleshoot. I have already run tests on both of my hard drives with a program that checks the health of your hard drive and both my disks are still in e... Read more

Videos will not play - sometimes they will start and then they stop. I have downloaded Adobe player but it doesn't seem to work. The sample videos that came with the Windows 7 system play beautifully. What can I do? Is it possible that the Abobe player is not installed properly? I have uninstalled it several times and reinstalled again but no difference in playing videos.

I just discovered this problem. I make video files using Corel VideoStudio Pro X2 and save them as MPEG (.mpg) files and store them in My Videos folder in my computer. I upload these files to YouTube and they ALWAYS play normally without any problem. (As of this moment, I have 75 videos in YouTube).

Today, I was trying to watch them in my computer using Windows Media Player 11. Some of the files are playing normally (both audio and video part), but in SOME only the audio is playing but no video (black screen). These are ALL made in the same way, saved in MPEG format, made by the same software ... basically they are all same kind of files. They, of course, are playing in Corel (the software used to create them) and also in another media player called Final Media Player.

I tested WMP in various ways ... played other videos with it and also DVDs (both commercially made and home made by me using the above named Corel software). Everything seems fine. So why it is not playing SOME of my video files created exactly the same way as others?

I tried to research in the mind boggling land of "Codecs". I, of course, don't understand much of the technicalities of the Codecs, Decoders and stuff, but I discovered an utility called "Sherlock" created by a Microsoft MVP engineer. With this amazingly easy to use utility I printed out a 11-page long list of audio and video codecs installed in my computer, in case some Codec Expert wants to know if I have a particular ...

I don't know if this is the right place to post this, sorry if it isn't.

So, basicly whenever i'm viewing a video on youtube (expecificly music videos) my headphones start going crazy and doing alot of background white noise (i think that's what its called) whenever there is a strong bass sound, as if they were broken.

The problem is, this only happens when viewing said videos on youtube. I've tried downloading a couple and listenning to them while not on youtube and they don't give me any problems at all, same goes for similar videos on other websites such as vimeo.

I've also tried with other headphones and nothing changes.

The only thing i've installed lately (and I think this started happening after the instalation and a computer reset) was the AMD Catalyst Control Centre, which I have no idea how it could possibly affect sound. Looked around in the CCC control panel and there is nothing related to sound.

Any help would be gladly appreciated seeing as listenning to some videos on youtube is actually kinda painful.

If it's specific to Youtube, it's Flash or the Flash configuration. Check the volume control in the Flash player.

Hello All

I have an HP Pavilion p7-1254 (at least started as that, had some stuff upgraded, explained below), AMD A6-3620 2.2Ghz Quad Core with AAHD2-HL board; save you the time of looking it up if needed. What happens is the system with will just freeze. Occasionally the audio that was playing with stutter infinitely like a skipping CD. Rarely I notice the system will stutter once or twice before totally freezing, happens in a couple seconds. But mostly, it just stops. When it freezes, the only option is to hard reboot.

I have had this problem for quite some time, probably about a year or two. At first I really didn't notice any consistency in the crashes, seems totally random. Some times it would freeze while browsing any random page, be it videos, forums, ad ridden or ad free. Any browser as well; Chrome, Firefox, IE. It also crashes when playing some games although not other games that have higher requirements; e.g. Guaranteed to crash, probably within 10 mins, if I play '8-bit Boy' on Steam (about as low res as implied) but I can go on 4 and 5 hour binges on Elder Scrolls Online or Skyrim with no crashes. I have recently noticed that YouTube videos (any video) is a guaranteed crash within a 20-30 seconds.

I have tried everything I have been able to find to do, to try and fix this issue; but none have worked. So far the hardware parts that have been replaced with new components are the RAM (now 2x4GB GEIL Enhanced Corsa PC3-12800), HDD (now 2TB WD Cavi... Read more

I've had this computer since March and I'm using the stock heat sink it came with. Recently I've noticed that sometimes programs will be unresponsive for 4-6 seconds and then it will go back to normal. The same thing can be said about the mouse, sometimes it doesn't even move. I took apart the side panel of my case and noticed that the CPU fan was making the noise. It sounds like a dial up modem, but a lot more silent. This noise can only be heard up close and eventually it goes away before starting to make the noise again. My CPU temps are normal, 31 on idle and usally 45-50 when I'm playing a game. The stock fan never stops spinning either. Maybe the motherboard has something to do with this? I haven't changed anything or added any new hardware since putting it together in March nor have I replaced the thermal paste because the temps were always low to begin with.

Hello this is my first time here and i hope i am posting in the right section. I checked the search option but couldnt find the same problem as mine.
So lets start i spent last night(about 12h) rendering images on my pc(which is less than 2 years old)
so after it was done evrything functioned nicely and i didn't notice any problems when i turned it off.
After around 3-4h i turned the PC on again and it started making some strange noice like crawling or whirling or something not sure how to describe it correctly. So i opened the PC and while it was all running and making the noise i used a screwdriver to block all of the fans for like a sec just to see if it is them (i read that from some other forum suggestion).
So anyway when i stoped the PSU fan the sound stoped and when i released it did not start immidiately. The sound does not start as soon as i start the PC it takes some time for it. Also the fan seems to slow down when it happens. Now i left it on like 10mins with the fan making the noise and slowing down and after like 5-10min the noise stoped and the fan started turning fast again. It has been several hours on since than and it is working normaly, i read that the problem could be dust/a wire out of place/a insect flying in etc. My concern is what i should do, is it the PSU failing or just the fan or maybe something else?

Hey guys, this is my first post here so if this is in the wrong place, then forgive me, I checked around and this seems like the best place for this kinda prob.

Ok the problem is that my fan on my graphics card (Radeon 9600XT) has started making a weird and very annoying buzzing/whirling sound.

It all started after I did my monthly clean up inside my system. Getting rid of all the grime and stuff and checking to see if everythings just all right.

Well i plugged everything back together and a strange whirling sound started coming from my system. It's hard to describe really, it's kinda intermitent. It comes on for 5/6 seconds then theres a pause, then it's on again for another 5/6 secs etc. It doesn't seem to be related to any sort of activity the computer is engaged in, ie it makes the same kinda noise when just sat there on desktop as it does when Im downloading stuff, browsing the net or playing games.

I took the back off my case to see what it might have been and found out it was my graphics card, because when i held my card the pitch of the buzzing would lower a bit, so I took the top of my fan off my g-card and cave it a good clean out because i thought maybe there was something stuck in the fan that was making the noise. The fan is now totally crap-free but it's still making the noise.

Grrrrrrr

If anyone has any suggestions please help It' so very annoying and starting to give me headache. Oh and if I've left out ne information ... Read more

My PC runs Windows 7 x64 and is basically an Asus H97I+ M/b, I7-4790K CPU & GTX970 GPU. There are two SSDs for hard drives...

Whenever I am running MS Flight Simulator, I get a strange, high-pitched 'chirping' noise from what should be a silent PC, fans apart. After Googling I kind of decided it was coil whine from the GPU:

GeForce GTX 970 Coil Whine Concerns | PC Perspective

but having opened up the case and listened more closely (literally) the noise seems to be coming more from the CPU. If so, what could it be? Pretty sure it's not mechanical (i.e. fans).

Oddly, as I say, I don't get the noise other than when I run MS Flight Simulator (I don't use this particular PC for much else). I tried stress testing the CPU with Intel Burn and the GPU with this:

https://unigine.com/products/benchmarks/valley/

..also copied large files from one SSD to another. None of which caused any noise at all. It's only when running FS9 (haven't tried FSX). Makes no sense to me. Recording of the noise is here:

Hey everyone.. New here have a critical question!

I was in the middle of playing some game about 20 minutes ago and my harddrive started making a strange buzzing/humming sound. To confirm it was my harddrive I unplugged it, and turned the computer on. The noise was gone when I did so. So I have it back in and everything and it "seems" everything is running a lot slower. Things are locking up, ect.

I'm wondering if anyone could give me an idea of what this problem is, and how long my HD might have left in it. I'll be monitering this thread so I'll try to reply fast.. Don't want my HD to die before I find an answer.

Trying in a different browser will help us determine whether it is a problem/setting in IE, or if it is a broader issue with your computer/OS.

The other thing I would try is to reset IE.

When i play video on youtube in minimum screen or middlesized one videos are normal, but when i play it in fullscreen video is oversaturated (too much contrast and light). The same happens at ANY video online (not just youtube).

It also happens when i play any video with windows media player at any size, but when i play movies with other players (like mpc,VLC player etc) its fine. I think some settings for online playing and media player are screwed up

A:Help with contrast when playing videos on youtube or wmp?

No I don't think so, there are no such settings, also contrast has nothing to do with your issue, looking at your sample, it seems like in full screen, the number of colors supported is lower so you are getting the next best thing. Check to see that you have the latest video drivers installed, also if you are using either the NVidia or the ATI center, you may see if there is something you can tweak there. But the monitor itself could be the issue, so see if you can borrow a monitor from a friend and reproduce the problem.

So yeah, I have this problem where every time I start to play a YouTube video, my screen will flicker a little then go black, permanently. I then have to force a power off to get Windows working again.

I can't figure out if it is Windows, FireFox, the Nvidia driver or the Flash plugin that's causing the problem.

A few times when the screen flickers it does come back on, with a balloon message saying the Nvidia driver has crashed and restarted, which would obviously point to the drivers. But only today I updated to the newest version (266.58) but still the problem occurs.

I removed the video driver, FireFox and Flash. Reinstalled all drivers cleanly, but I'm still having all the same problems. I can't for the life of me work it out.

And this only happens on YouTube. Any other video streaming sites play absolutely fine, but YouTube? Nope.

Can anyone out there give a little help to this problem?

Oh, it's Windows 7 64-bit, on a Dell XPS M1730 with Nvidia GeForce 8700m GT

and instantly the BSOD screen comes up saying its going to restart in a moment. the first code i got was 0xa0000001 . I wasn't able to write down the second code in time.

I noticed my HDD has been making this strange noise when running on battery like its trying loading something for a quick second but once it is plugged in charging the noise is not there, What could the possible problem be. I'm not sure if any of this could cause such as updating the BIOS and fresh install of windows 7

My computer running windows xp 64bit has been freezing. When it freezes it plays the last half second of sound played over and over very quickly, sounds like a machine gun. It happens both when gaming and doing nothing. Usually it unfreezes after a few minutes, only to freeze again. After roughly 30-40 minutes of this, the freezing usually stops.

Sometimes it does not unfreeze, and I have to hardboot. Windows will freeze when booting several times, safemode freezes after loading SPTD.sys, even after hitting escape to cancel loading.

AVG free, Avast, Clamwin, and clamtk (scanning my windows partition from linux) all pick up no viruses.

This happens with both windows xp home, windows xp pro 32bit, and windows xp 64bit. Linux does not seem to have any problems.

I've tried updating all my drivers, fresh installs, everything I can think of.

Anyone have any ideas?

A:[SOLVED] Strange Freezing - Sound making machine gun noise

No, it isn't a virus. It could be (1) temperature or (2) voltage—among other things.

Do be sure to check your temperatures in the BIOS in any case, because you want to be sure you're okay there. If the temperature is 30? C or anything like that, you've ruled that out. It's in the BIOS under Health, and look at the CPU and the System temps.

If your voltage is, say, 0.1 too low for your needs, you could have trouble. Overclockers can often help "ordinary guys" tweak their voltage settings the way that is exactly right for your RAM.

Then there is the possibility that a drive is not doing things just right. It would not have to be the drive you are using. For example, a CD-RW that works just fine might nonetheless have an operational problem that upsets the system, especially if it were on the same cable as the hard drive. You might never to think of looking for a drive that isn't in use at the time. Therefore some people would try subtracting all the hardware you are not using, piece by piece, to see if it goes away.

There is also the question whether it happens in Safe Mode. If your drivers are okay, I would guess it DOES happen in Safe Mode. But because Safe Mode installs just what you really need, it can sometimes suggest a solution in a backwards-thinking kind of way.

Finally, you mention quite a few anti-virus/firewall programs there. You are running just ONE firewall and you are running just ONE anti-virus program, right? If you are running more than ... Read more

The last few days or so my Acer laptop has been making a strange clicking sound (even when I have all sounds off) when I jump around buffering bar on Youtube videos or click on a youtube video as it begins. I reinstalled flash, firefox, chrome, to no avail. I updated my graphics driver and it seems to have only reduced how often it occurs. The sound seems to be coming from the speakers, but it doesn't come through any plugged in speakers so it seems like it might be mechanical. The issue doesn't seem to appear when watching videos downloaded my computer, or games, etc.

I disabled my Realtek High Definition Audio in Device Manager which seems to have stopped it, but of course it also disables all sound on my computer. This leads me to believe that it's Realtek's fault. What action should I take next?

Acer Aspire v5 laptop, Windows 8.1

Edit: Just noticed the sound section. Can a mod move this thread?

A:Strange popping/clickingsound when watching youtube videos

UPDATE

I went to device manager and uninstalled the Realtek Audio Device, also checked "Delete the software for this device", and restarted. Now, my computer has replaced it with "High Definition Audio Device". The sound seems to be working and the popping seems to be gone! I don't know what is wrong with realtek drivers, but I will update this thread for future knowledge if anything changes.

I've seen a lot of ways to make YouTube videos auto play, but no one else seems to want to prevent them from playing unless I click on them but me. I have limited bandwidth, so I'd rather not play videos unless I specifically choose to. I used to have an option to "stop download" when I right clicked, but for some reason on these that automatically start up, that option isn't there anymore.

What's the trick to keeping videos on blogs and other such websites from playing automatically?

Thanks!

Hello anyone who gets this message!

I was recently trying to watch a video and it would stay on 1% buffer. I left it at this and watched a youtube video in the mean time perfectly, then suddenly the other video started fully buffered. I tested many times and basically all videos except youtube videos must load completely after hitting the 'play' button before actually starting where as youtube downloads and plays simultaneously

Thanks guys!

This is a really annoying problem.
It nearly happens to all youtube videos i play.
The title is self explanatory, the videos keep on playing even though i stopped the video. I have tried re-installing firefox and flash, but with no good results.

Any ideas?

A:Youtube videos keep on playing even when i stop the video

Are you sure those videos run in Flash? Right click on a video and see if it displays Flash settings or HTML5 settings.

As far as my personal experience goes, whenever I install a new browser, or just clear my cache and cookies, then sign in to YouTube again, it seems to enable the HTML5 player by deafult, even though I don't opt in for the experiment. You can go to YouTube HTML5 page. and at the bottom of the page click "Join HTML5 trial" then "Leave the HTML5 trial"; that should fix some videos (with no ads) automatically playing in an HTML5 player.

As far as the Flash player goes, I'm not sure whether this is a Flash issue or something else on YouTube's part because for the last couple of days, I have a different issue where the progress bar doesn't show me how much of the video it has loaded (the gray meter that fills below the red progress indicator) though the video plays fine.

I am recently facing problems in streaming Youtube videos
when I try to watch a video on Youtube,it takes a lot of time to start playing and it buffers for two to three minutes or so
.I have a 2mbps cable connection directly connected to the pc from modem via Ethernet Cable.
I did not experience this problem before i reformatted my pc two days ago.
I have searched many forums to find a solution to this problem but I couldn't find a solution.
I have tried removing Adobe Flash Player and reinstalling the newest version but still it does not work.
I have tried Int Explorer,Firefox,Opera,Safari,Chrome....but all show the same problem.

Kindly Sirs please help me...any help will be greatly appreciated.
 

A:Videos take a lot of time to start playing on Youtube

It does sound like a isp problem unless your connection is being shared.
Is it just YT that is giving you grief or other sites ?
Try turning off the modem for a minute or 2 and see if that works.

You might want to consider contacting your isp to see if there are any local problems.

And btw, welcome to TSG, help yourself to the wealth of knowledge available here.

I recently had issues with Firefox. Youtube would not play any video. Or basically any video on any website. So after updating flash and still having the same problem. I went directly to the main source of my woes.

Firefox help. They have a great tip section in help and what they had me do, to was to uninstall flash 13 to an earlier version of flash. And they provided a link to it as well.

That did the trick. Adobe is obviously updating versions without testing them thoroughly.

So for anyone having issues with playing Youtube videos, try this first. I also tried doing a System Restore, but that also saves the newest version of Flash, so it was pointless. You dont always need to update flash. It may give you more grief then its worth

A few days ago, I made a thread about beeping noise from my laptop, but looks like it's not a beep sound because I went into my laptop BIOS and disabled the beep sound.
 
Now, my laptop is still doing the same noise. It can't be the beep sound because I disabled it. I tried to muted the volume, but it's still doing the noise/buzz/beep randomly.
 
I don't know where that sound come out. I checked drivers' update, they are all up to date..
 
What else to do?

When i got starcraft 2 yesterday i was having problems with overheating so opened up my case an went over everything with compressed air, including blowing the dust out of both fans. When i turned it back on the fan started making a loud noise like it was going really fast (i dont think that somthing had gotten in the blades because the fan it was coming from is in an unopanable metal box with a sticker saying (unservicable parts, do not open).

I stopped the blades with a pen to make sure that it was the fan making the noise and when the fan started moving again it was without the noise it was making before and rebooting the pc resulted in it starting up fine. However, i just started up this morning and the exact same thing happened. I opened up the pc to look for abnormalities and found nothing and hooked it back up and stopped the fan with a pen again and that fixed it and it has stayed fine after rebooting again. Any idea what has happened?
