Display freezes/Buzzing audio

Q: Display freezes/Buzzing audio

Hello, When ever playing a game or movie, there will be short moments of freezing and a strange noise as if it were stuttering. Then it will just go back to normal. But then it will come back again momentarily. Can anyone help me? Thanks!-Denny

Hello,


Starting about a week ago whenever any audio is being played through my computer (speaker or headphone) I will hear a buzzing sound and occasionally the audio with skip. This happens weather I am playing audio that is being streamed from the internet or that is on my computer directly.

I have tried several things to fix this problem including installing all windows updates that are available as well as updating my audio drivers.

I am running windows 7 home premium 64 bit. My computer model is hp pavilion dv7t quad 6100 and I have IDT high definition audio codec driver version 6.10.6381.0 which my computer says is the latest driver version. Updating to this version has not solved the problem, however.

Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated. If there is additional info that is neccesary, please let me know and I will post it.

A:IDT High Def Audio, buzzing sound when playing any sort of audio.

Unplug the speakers from the PC and see if you still get the buzz with headphones. Some "buzz" problems can be related to "AC power ground loop" problems if some separately powered devices are connected.

Noise and skipping are problems that have been posted here before. There is no "one fix" for that. There are possible hardware problems, drivers (including video drivers), Interrupt issues, Wi Fi caused, etc.

Skipping can be because the other device that is on the shared Interrupt that the sound is on is interrupting the sound. Sound is always on a shared interrupt (IRQ) with a higher priority device. You can try this: go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the entry for the IDT and then LEFT click "Uninstall". DO NOT check the box to uninstall the drivers. Then restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect the sound and reinstall it and some times put it on a different shared IRQ.

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 rester 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.
 
SPECCS: 
Motherboard: Gigabyte P55-US3L
CPU: Intel Core i5 750 @ 2.67GHz

Hello,

Over the last several months, I've been experiencing my PC hard locking and producing a buzzing sound through my headphones. The only 'solution' at the moment is to manually reset my tower to get back to the desktop. It's been very difficult to isolate how this begins; I've had this occur when I have 1-2 monitors, whilst doing work/PC on idle, watching a video on youtube/streaming, etc.

I took the advice in a previous thread (Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD) by going through msconfig and doing a clean start-up on Windows but I still experience the lock-ups. However, the only program I did not disable upon start-up was my anti-virus program (Avira Internet Security) and the problem reared its head last night. I've never had a problem with this on my previous machine so I doubt that this program would be a problem..?

My system specs are as follows:

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
Intel i5 3750K
ASUS Z778LK-V mobo
1 TB WD Caviar Black
8 GB Ram (I believe this is Corsair Hyper X, is there anyway I can check this without pulling out the sticks?)
ASUS GTX660 2GB (331.65 older drivers, was experiencing intermittent black outs on my screen)
Corsair HX650W PSU

I was wondering if there if anyone had any suggestions on whether this could be software vs. hardware based, since I haven't really changed the programs I've used since the same majority of programs with my previous rig. Would there be any benchmarks that could be recommended to test my comput... Read more

A:PC freezes and produces buzzing sounds

The stress test would probably be a good way to test the cpu. I would give that a shot. Also; since you said you have lock ups; I would test the ram using Memtest86+ using the following link to see if there is any issues with your ram possibly:

I bought my computer new from Dell about 2 years ago. It's an Alienware Aurora R3. It's suitable for high graphics gaming. My computer freezes at random times. While in this frozen state, the keyboard and mouse are unresponsive and there is a buzzing sound coming from the speakers if a video, song or game was interrupted by this freezing. I have to turn the computer off and then on to get it to stop. I have read all the other threads describing the same problem but they are all inconclusive. Some say it's hardware, others say it's drivers etc.

But there is one interesting thing I found with my problem. When I was playing World of Warcraft (an MMORPG) I was able to reproduce that frozen state. It may be difficult to understand if you have never played the game. My character has the ability to fly which adds a dimension to it's movement. When I fly against a certain doorway in the game my character struggles and I get a fast intermittent buzzing then it locks into the above mentioned frozen state. So I guess I'm using "higher" graphics when I do this? I may have narrowed it down to the graphics card.

There are 2 recent unusual events that took place before this started happening. I had malware and downloaded Malwarebytes. Malwarebytes successfully removed the malware. I uninstalled Malwarebytes after discovering it may conflict with my McAffee antivirus. I also bought a new wireless mouse and keyboard. These events may have nothing to ... Read more

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:
Processor
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4700HQ CPU @ 2.40GHz

Video Card
Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600

Video Card #2
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M

RAM
8.0 GB

Operating System
Microsoft Windows 10 (build 10586), 64-bit
 

A: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've had this computer in 4 different shops in the past year and nothing has been fixed because they cant recreate the phoblem im causing or thats the excuse i get.

My computer will blue screen and scroll some jibberish. I have to manually turn the computer off with the switch in the back. If i turn it on right away it will usually freeze on the Windows loading screen. If it makes it back on it will BUZZZZZZZZZZZ during the majority of the windows loading screen.

If i have too many pages open in a browser it will BUZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

Hi,

Uninstalling the Intel display driver and using the Microsoft Windows generic display driver stops this buzzing from occurring, but that also stops the screen brightness hotkeys from working so it's not really a solution.

Hi, I have problem with HP 8770w with DreamColor display and quadro k4000m. The display flickers (white flashes) with some tones of gray/black. It also flickers when accessing Win8 right hand side panel. The flickering is visible when playing video content : but it is present constantly on the same part of the video (the flickering is not visible on external monitor with duplicate display or any other computer - with same media), it is also visible for example in Photoshop when adjusting curves to image, when you reach certain point of gray/black shadows/colors.I have taken the laptop to service, they changed motherboard, lcd panel, graphic card and the problem is still present.Before taking it to repairs I  have tested it with different drivers (official and 3rd party), different OS and the problem persists.If anyone has any news or solutions I would be more than happy.Thxp.s.does any of you with DreamColor panels notice buzzing noise from top right hand side of the panel. It stops if lcd panel is on standby (not active) and it changes in intensity if you change brightnes. Anyeone?

I don't know if this actually belongs here, so forgive me.
Since the past couple of months, my computer freezes at completely random times. However, at every instance it froze, there was always some kind of sound being played, and when it DOES freeze, a buzzing sound comes from the speakers. The buzzing sound's volume can be adjusted using the knobs on the speakers. I could be wrong on this since I haven't actually tested it out, but it appears that the volume of the buzzing seems to match whatever the sound clip was. For example, if I'm playing a really quiet sound clip, the buzzing is also quiet, and if it's a loud clip, the buzzing is louder.

After this happens, I just hold down the power button to turn it off, and then turn it back on again. When it turns back on, Windows is able to recognise that there was a problem and asks me if I want to boot in Safe Mode, which I haven't tried yet.

Most recently, however, the process was a little different. Instead of the computer suddenly and abruptly freezing, first, the sound stopped working. I thought it might have been the video I was watching, so I went to open another video to test it out... and then the computer froze (no buzzing sound from the speakers).
I originally had two audio drivers; Intel(R) Display Audio and Realtek High Definition Audio. When these problems first began, I turned off the Intel(R) Display Audio, hoping that the problems might have been caused by a conflict in the drivers or something, but eviden... Read more

A:Computer randomly freezes with buzzing sound.

When a PC hangs up or "freezes" such as happening to yours, the sound can produce as low buzzing sound. It is not a sign there is a problem with the sound. There is some other problem, not really associated with sound.

Did Gateway provide any hardware diagnostics? and if they did run them to see if anything shows up.

When I'm loading Civ 5, Sims 3 and Sims 2, I can hear loud buzzing/screeching form inside my case. It only occurs when first loading the games, not like when I'm actually in a household in Sims or moving units in Civ, and stops if I bring up another window when they're loading. As soon as a switch back to their window, though, the sounds start again. I'm well above required and recommended specs for the games that cause the buzzing, and I had the same problem on my old computer, which was also above recommended specs. Is my onboard sound trying to play some of the game's audio? Or is it just some weird error I have to deal with?

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.

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.

So a few weeks ago I was in Sony Vegas editing a video and suddenly my mouse and keyboard both became unresponsive and a loud buzzing noise started coming out of my speakers. I left it for a few minutes but nothing happened, there was no blue screen of death, no error message,nothing. so the only thing I could do was force a restart.

Over the next few days the problem continued in graphical/CPU intensive programs (such as photoshop, Vegas, fsx, etc), and all I could do was restart. Not once did I see an error message. I did originally think that it was due to an overclocking (4.4 GHz) however I checked my temperatures and they didn't ever peak above 60-70. Neverthelss, I underclocked back to 3.3 but still experienced the problem.

I read online that I should do a clean install of windows so I did that, and up until now I thought the problem was solved. And a couple of minutes ago I was playing age of empires and the computer froze and then The buzzing started again.

A:Computer freezes and makes buzzing noise, no BSOD?

I would say its a graphics card problem, I have had the same happen to me before but that was due to me putting a heavy overclock on my card. I have also had the same happen with a couple of old graphics cards that died.

Although the computer is new, it is know for graphics to fail at any time, if you have the chance you can prove it by testing your pc with a different graphics card, if you don't have access to one then I would either take the pc back to where you bought it and get them to test it, or if you built it yourself I would RMA the card.

Ideally it would be good for you to try another card in your PC first to make 100% sure it is the card, but it certainly sounds like it to me.

Hey guys. I've been having this problem on and off and with various games now. At some point during playing a game, my laptop will freeze and make a buzzing sound through the speakers/headphones. I have a Dell XPS L501x laptop with Windows 7 64bit on it. I have an Intel Core i7-2630QM CPU with 6GB of RAM. My video card is a Nvidia GeForce GT 540M.

I've contacted Dell about this and they replaced my motherboard 3 times and the problem persisted. However, the replacements were about a year ago when this problem occurred while playing League of Legends. After Dell not really being able to help and their flawed and pointless circle logic became more of a nuisance than the buzzing problem, I decided to just endure the issues. The buzzing sound and the freezing did stop happening however after a few more times of encountering the problem. I didn't change anything or update anything to my knowledge. It just stopped happening.

However, recently while playing Skyrim, I've been facing the same issues! The screen will freeze and a buzzing sound will play through my headphones. If I disconnect the headphones while it's buzzing, the sound doesn't come through the speakers though.

Dell Support wasn't fully able to get rid of the problem, but maybe you guys can help me find the root of it. Let me know what other information you need and thank you all in advance!

So, my computer was working normally and then it froze in the middle of my game and the speakers produced a loud buzzing noise.

I restarted my computer by pressing the holding the power button, but it wouldn't load all the way. Sometimes it would freeze during the windows loading icon, sometimes it's just a black screen, sometimes I'm able to sign onto my account but freezes again.

I performed a system repair and a scan; scan showed no corrupt files.

Hi,

I feel like a regular on here with the amount that goes wrong with my pc, but anyway. I've been getting random computer crashes where everything freezes and the audio speakers emit a very loud buzzing noise and the only way i can carry on is if i hit the restart button..

Now originally i thought this was an overheating problem but now I'm not convinced. I just started it up after the crash and got a bios message of DDr3 unganged mode and asking to go into the bios settings to run setup ?

Please help.. kinda getting annoying now

So I am having this problem for a while now.. Every time I play a game like Minecraft or Borderlands 2 my computer freezes without having the ability to move the mouse or anything else.. I can't use the task manager or lock the screen.. It's a complete freeze.. And it happened once when I was listening to music without opening anything else, I seen that case before but not with PCs I seen it with Playstation 1 when a game doesn't work properly.. I doubt there is a dump file since it's not being able to save anything after the freeze.. It happened more than once about 6 times.. I would like to know what is wrong with it, I asked few people and they said it might be a memory leak, but I don't believe this is the case.

P.S my windows 7 is a dual boot with Ubuntu 12.10 using WUBI (I don't think it's the reason since my laptop is the same settings)

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.

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

Hello forum!

I have been struggling with this buzzing for such a long time and at this point I think I've tried nearly everything.

When plugged my two cables into the rear end of my PC (The pink and the green), it has imense amount of buzzing. A minor fix for this was: install Realtek Audio Device Manager, and put the output stick from green to the blue. This fixed the issue from constant buzzing, but now, when I play games, any game at all, there is a buzzing matching when I play (Probably synchronized with the FPS).

I tried using my front sticks, which fixed the sound issue for a small amount of time, untill the stick stopped working completely(I also would like very much, if my back sticks actually would work properly). The audio cable to the motherboard(the one in the lower left cornor of the board), was plugged in the AC '97. I tried changing that to HD Audio. Same problem. In the end I even tried disconnecting the cable completely, since it apparently just was the connection from the front sticks, and the might have an effect on audio if unused.

Of course, I also tried reinstalling drivers. (Currently AMD High Definition Audio Device and High Definition Audio Device are installed).

None of this worked. I really need a permanent fix on this. Nearly every part of the computer is farely new (maximum 3-4 months old).

Nothing seem to work, please help

A:Realtek Audio Driver buzzing

The "buzzing" sounds like a "ground loop hum". What else do you have plugged into the computer? Also, is it properly grounded? Improper or no AC Power ground can cause that. Even a defective power cord from the power supply to the AC power receptacle. Even remotely, if the PC is powered into a power strip, the power strip could be defective.

The HD Audio connector should be used as it provides some jack sensing that the older AC97 does not have.

So I just updated my Toshiba laptop from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 and now I'm having audio problems. At first after I upgraded I had no sound. I fixed it by uninstalling and reinstalling my Realtek audio driver. Now thankfully I got my sound back, but now whenever I play audio the sound isn't clear anymore Especially when I use YouTube. I updated my Realtek audio driver from version 6.0.1.7541 to 6.0.1.7586 and I still hear the buzzing! I tried audio troubleshooting and it said the problem couldn't be identified. What do I do?

A:Continuous audio buzzing but with sound!

Hi there and welcome to the forum

Have you checked and confirmed you are using the correct audio playback device in your audio properties?

Have you got the speakers (and other settings) configured correctly in audio playback device?

Have you also checked to confirm whether running the driver in combination with Toshiba Audio Enhancement stops the speakers buzzing?

Have you tried an earlier driver version? For instance 6.0.1.7023 for example.

Thank you very much for your time.

A:No BSOD, crashes with audio buzzing

Hello there and welcome to TSF (it's a wonderful community, I like it here).

It is possible that something has changed in the past few weeks that triggers the crashes, after about a year of flawless performance, unless this has occurred before, but at a lower frequency. Did you install any hardware components just before the onset of this problem? Perhaps added some more RAM? Talking of which, how much ram have you got and what's the make and model of ram modules installed? Kindly provide more information on your storage setup. Any SSD drives, raid setups etc.

You mentioned sluggish performance after a crash, does it happen only after a crash or is it always this slow at startup? 10 minutes is a long time to wait for a pc of your specs to be ready for user operation. Could it be some task is scheduled to run after logon, a backup task perhaps? A quick look at Resource Monitor should tell what processes are taking up resources during those ten minutes.

Recently, my audio quality has taken a leap of faith and landed two-hundred floors below splattered on the pavement. The speakers play the sound itself alright, but it is accompanied by a buzzing. Like as if someone is talking into a microphone, but the microphone is way too close to their mouth. I've found that this problem can be temporarily fixed by going into my playback devices, speakers, properties, advanced, and then randomly changing the sample rate and clicking apply. This lasts for about 30 mins to an hour. That time can be shortened even further if I am watching a YouTube video (which I am, all day every day) and I pause it. For whatever reason, when I go to play it again, the sound goes back to basically blown speakers. I don't get it. I know the laptop is covered by warranty, and considering it's directly affecting the experience I'm getting from it, I think a free repair/replacement is in order. I've only had this thing for 3/4 of a year. I've never dropped it, I don't listen to the volume on full blast (seldom higher than 40), and quite frankly, this is bull****. I've updated every driver to the latest version, so don't try to tell me that's the problem.

A:My PC freezes and makes buzzing sound in game or when watching HD movies

Are you overclocking the CPU or GPU? Example would be using the AMD Catalyst software (under AMD Overdrive) and increasing clock settings? Maybe played with the BIOS settings and overclocked the CPU? It sounds like you are putting too much stress on the GPU portion of your AMD A8 3500M chip, and it may just be heating up too much. If you haven't yet tried, install CPUID HWMonitor to check on the temps as your gaming or watching movies to see how high the temps get.

A buzzing sound may mean a capacitor going bad. Open the case and get a flashlight and check them visually until better advice is given.

Search Google images for "bad capacitor" to see how they would look like.

Another thing that comes to my mind is the buzzing is a faulty fan? Get HWInfo and check CPU and GPU temps.

Hey guys. So I finally got finished with my Cosmos Mod (which I hope to have up and posted on the forums soon ) but I'm having some trouble with buzzing and crackling with the headphones plugged into the front jack.

My Cosmos case comes equipped with the HD Azalia front audio connector in addition to the AC '97 audio connector. When completing my wire management and sleeving, I decided to remove the AC '97 connector since I only needed the HD Azalia connector, which is attached to my Creative X-Fi Extreme Gamer sound card. So I simply cut the AC '97 connector off. I did not cap each of the exposed remaining wires as they were very small in diameter and I figured I would just sleeve over it and try it.

Problem: When I plug any of my three pairs of different headphones to the front panel I have buzzing and crackling whether games or programs are making sound or not. I especially have crackling when I move my Razer Death Adder around, which seems really weird. I've got the Death Adder plugged directly into my Logitech G15. By the way, I've also got my wireless Logitech mouse plugged in and when I move that one around, there is no ill effect on the sound. ??

So, I downloaded LatencyMon as stated in threads concerning people with my same problem. The closest I got to finding someone with my same problem was when they were having problems with usb.sys or something or other, can't recall the exact filename. What makes my predicament tricky, or so I think, is that the problem is being caused by what seems to be a binary file within System32\drivers named DDDriver64Dcsa.sys and another was ACPI.sys, the former having the highest DPC routine execution time (501188) and the latter having the highest ISR routine execution time. (82.5)

From what I'm reading, I'm interpreting it that DDDriver64Dcsa.sys is the cause of my problems. I've disabled ACPI.sys and it has had no effect on the audio stutters. The good thing is that I know what to try next, the bad thing is that I don't know what to do with this other file. It is a binary file within some other package. Systemexplorer.net has it that "This file belongs to product Dell Diags Device Driver and was developed by company Dell Computer Corporation. This file has description DDDriver.sys." I'm a bit scared to just up and delete it, as I'm not entirely sure what it does.

Today i have installed windows 7 on 64 bits and i just cannot get past this problem with the sound. I have a 5.1 surround audio system and have installed the latest Realtek HD audio driver on my pc to get all the speakers going.

After the installation of the driver every sound came with buzzing. The music, the clicking on folders, games, anything, every sound was buzzing, just like the static you get on radio, a blurred sound, if i may call it that way. This was the first thing to install on my PC after the Opera browser. I only have the standard High Definition Audio Driver from the windows, no other audio driver, so i don't think that anything can interfere with the Realtek driver. Can this be because it's 64 bits?

Can anyone help please? I've seen this problem on the net but there was no exact answer. Why is Realtek software acting this way? I tried reinstalling or tried older versions, nothing helped. :??:
Can anyone give any piece of advice?

Hi,

I have been using for a while a Toshiba Satellite c650 laptop. It has been used only to listen to music and to check e-mail via Internet Explorer. Recently, after a short camping trip where rain was abundant, the screen stopped functioning. The computer was working, we could hear the music playing. After shutting it down, turning it back on would make the screen work for anything from a few seconds to a few minutes. The screen then remained pitch black, whatever we did. I finally had the idea to plug in my 27-inch external monitor.
The results weren't as good as I expected. The external screen works fine, but the resolution cannot be set higher than 1366x768, instead of the usual 1600x900 on the laptop. Also, when connected to my Alienware laptop, the external monitor can go up to 1980x1080.
As if this wasn't enough, when playing music, the speakers would suddenly let out a very loud buzzing noise for a few seconds. We have tried to pinpoint the cause, but it happens whenever it seems to want to.

Is there anything we can do about the screen? (without sending it to be repaired, of course) I guess there's a problem in the hardware, because the external screen works. There might also be a problem with the video card, because of the weird maximal resolution..

Please, any help or advice is gladly accepted.

Nazsha

A:Laptop screen not working, audio buzzing

The external monitor cannot go beyond 1366x768 because (probably) you're connecting it to a port that's used for projectors.
Question: If you shine a bright light into the laptop's monitor, can you see anything? (if yes, then it's just the light source that went pfffzt)

Without sending it to be repaired you'd have to repair it yourself. Which means using tools, taking measurements then sending them back and forth through a forum. It'll probably take weeks and it might cause more damage.

This occurred today, Just after I had installed a copy of The Secret World, I was in a skype call and playing Dawn of war 2. I noticed the issue, but dismissed it as the computer was simply using too much CPU or something (I apologize, I am only just starting to get into the specifics with computers, sorta new). So I did the obvious, turn it off then on (via restart). Nothing changed, so I shrugged it off an played one game of League of Legends with minimal success not due to computer problems. I restarted after that with a manually scheduled Disk Check. Did it's thing for three hours, came back, messed around, still the stutter and buzzing. Did some fishing around on the net, did a sfc/scannow (don't know what that did), and uninstalled any background components to Norton and MacAfee if they weren't already gone, and updated my realtek codices.

One forum I read with similar symptoms suggested it was my motherboard going. I just want to be sure.
