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.

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?

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.

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.

Hello, my name is Bradon. I built this computer about a year ago, and the past few weeks it has been crashing 4-5 times a week, though it never BSOD. When the PC does crash however, it completely freezes with buzzing audio. This forces me to push the restart button and when everything does come back up, the machine is incredibly slow for the first 10 minutes of use.

? What was original installed OS on system? custom machine, first OS I placed on
? Is the OS an OEM version (came pre-installed on system) or full retail version (YOU purchased it from retailer)? Technet Key
? Age of system (hardware) ~1 year
? Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS? ~1 year. I have not resorted to reinstalling OS yet.

? CPU i7-3930k
? Video Card MSI 7950 2PMD3GD5
? MotherBoard ASROCK x79 extreme6
? Power Supply - brand & wattage XFX 1000w fully modular

Let me know if there's any other info you need. PSU and GPU is 3 weeks old and the freezes were occurring seldom before i had replaced it.

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.

I recently bought the HP Pavilion 15ab570TX, I've had it for only a few days before this problem arised. I was watching a series on the laptop when suddenly the sound went away, and a buzzing sound from the laptop (could be fan or from audio itself) replaced it. Now, whenever I turn on the laptop, a loud buzzing sound appears. I went on youtube to check the audio status but I couldn't hear anything eventhough the speakers icon says the speakers are okay and the sound is well above 66. What is the problem? I don't understand how it can be dust issues because I've kept the laptop clean and covered most of the time. It's been approximately three days since I received the laptop.

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. ??

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.

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.

A:Audio buzzing/stuttering during videos/games

Since the screen will "freeze", suggests the sound problems are just a result of whatever is causing the PC to hang up and not directly a sound problem. Thus another forum section would be more applicable than the sound section.

You can run the Resplendence Latency Mon program and that may help, if you can figure it out as it gives you "information overload".

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.

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 all,

I'm posting in the Windows forum because the exact source of the issue is unknown. If we come up with a more precise cause I would be happy to move the discussion to the appropriate forum.

The problem is a brief sporadic stuttering or digitization noise (very similar to some elements of dubstep music actually). It sounds like a quarter-second of audio is repeated at high speed and then it goes back to normal. This happens with variable frequency; sometimes once every minute or two, sometimes as long as 45 minutes between occurences. The frequency seems at least partially dependent on the graphical output being used, but it's hard to tell for sure. The problem is quite immersion-breaking, and it extends to all uses (local music, streaming, gaming, movies, everything). I suspect that the entire computer (not just the audio) may be pausing/stuttering along with it, because sound effects never get desynced with video; for example when people are talking in movies their lips never get out of sync with their voices, despite the audio pausing while it stutters.

This problem started about 3 weeks ago, and I had not made any hardware or software changes that I am aware of.

Possible solutions I have already tried, without effect:
New GPU (same model as old one)
New PSU (same model as old one)
Disconnecting HDMI
Running only 2 monitors
Adjust NVIDIA settings for performance not quality
Rolling back GPU drivers twice to different versions, then updating

I recently purchased a GTX 580 and after installing it and rebooting my computer, once windows fired up I noticed my speakers were making a high pitched noise, along with fluctuating static. Upon further investigation I realized my audio was also not working. Here are some things I have tried to remedy the situation:

- Checked the speakers: They work perfectly on another computer, likewise I still get the noise when I tried a different set of speakers and a set of earbuds in the problem computer

- Tried changing the video card out with the old GTX 460, didn't work

- I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling both audio and video drivers using these instructions (http://www.evga.com/forums/tm.aspx?m=586183&mpage=1) with drive sweeper, again to no success

- I have swapped out PSU's and still get the problem

- I have tried doing a fresh windows install with a spare HDD and I still get the noise as soon as windows boots

I have figured out that if I go in to Device Manager, under System Devices and disable one of the 'High Definition Audio Controller' (there are two, but the other is associated with my video card) then the noise will stop.

At this point I am pretty perplexed as to what is causing this. Could something on my board have been zapped? I'm out of ideas for a fix, any help/ideas would be greatly appreciated!

A:Audio buzzing problem when watching twitch.tv or Youtube

The Latency Mon can overwhelm with data and sometimes hard to interpret (at least for me).

However, one thing I see reference is "High Definition Audio Bus driver, which suggests you do not have the correct sound driver installed. In most cases if the generic, basic function, Windows installed High Definition Audio Drivers (Codec) is installed that says the correct sound driver has not been installed. The High Definition Audio can also be installed for HDMI Audio (if you have HDMI) and that can also indicate the correct HDMI audio driver has not been installed. You specific model uses RealTek for the PC audio and can have either Intel or NVIDIA for HDMI (depending on optional video).

Considering the audio does not appear to have the correct drivers, install the proper drivers and see if that makes any difference as a first step.

Good evening.

I am writing you all tonight because I have become incredibly frustrated with my newly built gaming rig. I have had my computer built for maybe two or three weeks, and have been getting the Blue Screen Error 133 (DPC Watchdog Violation) and LiveKernelEvent code 141 as my most common crashes/errors. I typically get an error while gaming, and have froze / crashed in the following games: Counter Strike: Global Offensive, League of Legends, and Dark Souls 3. I have also crashed (Blue Screen crash) while watching a YouTube video, and shortly after launching Overwatch for the first time.

Another weird thing to note: While playing Dark Souls 3, I have this weird light flashing glitch. Here is a link to the video I recorded earlier today (best seen between 1:05 - 1:25 in the video):

Besides blue screening and that weird light glitch, I also occasionally get a freeze where a horribly buzzing noise fills my headphones. This either leads to a blue screen, or my game unfreezes moments later. In addition to this, occasionally my game will freeze for a split second, looping whatever the current audio is (without the horrible buzzing) before continuing as normal.

I would also like to mention that the Blue Screen crashes appear to be happening at random. I can play for hours, and then I'll get a Blue Screen, or I could play for a couple minutes and it could happen.

If this problem has been solved already, please link - Thanks

A:Realtek HD Audio Manager, Buzzing noise in playback

Do you get the Buzz with speakers (only) too? If you hear it with the speakers, physically disconnect the speakers from the PC and then see if you hear it in the headphone - with the Headphone only connected, not the mic.

Do you have any other AC powered device (other than a monitor) connected to the PC?

For the past couple weeks I've been having trouble with a very loud staticky buzzing noise coming from the bottom left corner of my Aspire VN7-791G (left of the touch pad below the keyboard) when the machine is under load (working in game engines and playing games, mainly). I've had this laptop for a little over a year and never had this issue before. On the software side everything seems fine, I haven't noticed FPS drops or freezes/lockups or anything of the sorts. I do get an occasional blue screen but those are very uncommon after all the driver and BIOS updates (power state failure or something like that). The buzzing seems to get louder depending on the work load. If I close all active programs the noise tends to still stay constant for couple few minutes, then it dies down gradually until it's silent completely.I tried recording the sound, and when I listen through headphones it sounds a lot like the real thing (just not as loud):  http://vocaroo.com/i/s1cZvjzHgHs5.  Also: I haven't tried replicating this yet but earlier I was running a game on battery battery power by accident. The machine was completely silent. After a while I got a message saying battery was low, so I plugged in the charger and...instantly heard the buzzing at maximum loudness (not a gradual increase like normal). Could it have something to do with power saving settings maybe? Or more likely to be a hardware thing? T... Read more

Suddenly after starting the computer and going online there was a loud buzz on my stereo output. The output goes from my optical audio. This has never happened before. I flipped the receiver to radio and it's fine. Typing on my backup computer now. The sound from this computer to a different input on the same receiver is fine.

The mouse and keyboard are fine here too. But none of my mice or keyboards work on my main computer. I have a wired mouse and keyboard bridging the two computers with a KVM so they can share the same screen too. On the main computer I also have a couple of mice and a keyboard attached wirelessly. This setup has been fine for a long time. Years.

But with the mouse and keyboard unresponsive (I've unplugged all but the wired one), there's no way to shut it down safely.

Can someone provide a plan to diagnose the problem or tell me how you solved a similar problem please?

A:Buzzing on audio output and loss of mouse/keyboard:can't shut down

First up is the machine listed in system specs the problem machine? Also have you tried other mice or keyboards wired or not on the problem machine.
Even if you can get at least a keyboard to work you can safely shut down using that.

Now the set up I do have a problem imagining it in my minds eye it sounds quite complicated. having said that if it has gone for years like that then maybe you have some serious hardware problems with either the plug in devices, the machine components or both.

Now I have Googled KVM (never head of that abbreviation and never used one) and find it is a piece of equipment too that could be going south?

I have a brand new Inspiron 7560 and I've been having a lot of issues with the audio and video sort of lagging and making a buzzing noise and stuttering, it happens every 15 minutes when watching something or listening to music.
I had this issue and then got the laptop replaced because I had no idea what the issue was. I don't like returning items but it was brand new and cost a lot so I was worried there was a bigger problem. It happened with the first one from the get go but with the replacement it started happening after a few days of use. It started off with static noises every so often roughly within the first say 30 minutes of turning the laptop on, and then it started doing the buzzing and lagging every 15 minutes like the first one I had. I've also noticed a static noise whenever putting the charger in or out.
I had a look on the internet on how to fix it before I got the first one replaced but none of it worked, I've had another look now and came across a thread but it was from 2011 so thought the fix may be outdated now. I thought my best bet was to just come straight here to see if anyone could help.
I'm really hoping this is a known issue and it's easy to remedy as I really don't want to return this one after already returning one. I'm sorry I haven't got much information about the issue, but I hope someone will be able to help me. If you need anything else I will try my best to answer any questions.
Thanks very much

A:Audio and Video make buzzing noise/stuttering every 15 minutes

Different folks have problems for different reasons.  I would suggest you open at least Task Manager to watch the performance on the system to see if anything pops up every 15 minutes which is using resources.
Keep an eye on Processor speed and utilization.  Also the drive usage.  I can't think of anything which goes on a 15 minute time interval, but possibly some setting you have set up such as checking for mail..
Using Resource Monitor would be even better,  but the software/browser you are using could also be involved.

I have an Inspiron 17 5000 series with Windows 8.1.  Recently, when I plug an external speaker line into the audio jack, as we've been doing since we bought it about a year ago, there's now a buzzing ticking sound. The music will play, but not without the ticking.  And sometimes when I plug into the audio jack, there's a high pitch squeal that lasts a second. But, the ticking noise doesn't stop.  I've updated drivers and it says they're updated with the latest and greatest. Any solution on fixing this??  Thanks!   -- Russ 

A:Inspiron 17 5000 series audio jack buzzing noise

I have an Inspiron 17 5000 series, having static sounds when I plug in my speakers or earphones.  Problem happened "overnight"  one day all was well, next afternoon, static.   Did a system restore, thinking some auto update messed up the driver, but that did not help.  Internal speakers still sound really nice, but need to have the audio jack work correctly
If I cannot get a fix for this, will have to send it back.  Got too much data, pix, and music  loaded and too many programs to reinstall.  Really Really don't want to do this.   
Please help!   and Thanks!

Hello, the problem i have is peculiar. I tried googling it, but i had problems describing the problem, so i will try to do that here. I hope that someone will be able to help me.
Recently i decided to upgrade my CPU so i had to replace the mobo as well. After reinstalling windows 7 everything seemed to work fine for a week or so and then one morning when i started the computer i noticed that all sound was replaced by buzzing. Constant buzzing noise coming from my headphones. I thought that my headphones were broken.. so i pulled the headphones from my Z-2300 audio jack and the same sound came from my logitech speakers. I then tested the speakers on my laptop - everything worked. So the speakers nor the headphones are not the culprits. So i restarted my computer and i was so happy when i heard the windows startup sound, but soon after when i went to youtube i noticed something very weird. Some bits of a song that was playing went quiet.. so the problem persisted. As i listened to the track i noticed that the sound came back at random times for a while and then went to buzzing/static noise. The way the audio disappears is very strange, the audio starts to disappear from the left speaker and then it disappears from the right speaker and gets replaced by buzzing noise which isn't very loud.
I thought that maybe it's some kind of adobe flash problem, because moving my mouse on the music video sometimes managed to get the audio working again, but i have concluded that it... Read more

A:Solved: Problem with audio - it disappears and is replaced by buzzing noise at random

Sounds like the audio chipset is faulty/failing. You could try using a different audio port (ie: front panel, rear panel, digital optical, digital coaxial, etc.), just to rule out a port issue.

Something strange happened to me today (well the day I posted this thread). I was watching this: "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qj6Kg94vPEw" My laptop monitor broke one day so I had to connect a external monitor. The laptop monitor is plain black and doesnt work 100 (and 1)% of the time. Anyways what happened is that I watched that video then at some point the audio started looping causing buzzing and my external monitor shut down/went pure black without saying "Monitor going to sleep" or anything like that. The computer was on when that was happening. So I shut it down to stop the buzzing and the blank screen. Then I switched it on. Logged on, created a account on this website and so here is this thread. Is this normal? Should I be worried? Does this mean anything?

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

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

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

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

First post, hope I'm doing this right.Hi guys, about 3 weeks ago I purchased a Lenovo ideapad 110. It's a great laptop, however, about a couple weeks ago, the laptop started making a loud grinding/buzzing sound when playing audio. The sound only lasts for second, but it's quite jarring, to the point where I have to take out my earphones and take a break from what ever I was watching/listening to. It also happens without earphones, so those aren't the problem. YouTube is when it mainly occurs, however other sites with audio have it too. I've tried playing with the audio settings and updating the drivers, it worked for a few days, but the sound has returned. My previous laptop, a hp did this too, but never this frequently, so what exactly is this? I'm not very tech-savvy, so I have no idea.Here are the spec if it helps.15.6-inch (1366 x 768 pixels) TN displayIntel Pentium N3710 Processor (1.60GHz 1600MHz 2MB) with Intel HD Graphics4GB RAM (up to 8GB), 1TB HDDWindows 10 HomeBuilt-in DVD Recordable DriveStereo Speakers with Dolby Audio, 3.5 mm Combo Audio JackUSB 3.0, USB 2.0, HDMI, RJ45 Ethernet and 4-in-1 Card Reader (SD, SDHC, SDXC, MMC)Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi 802.11 acDimensions: 378 x 265 x 22.9; Weight: 2.2 kg24WH batteryThanks.

Hi,
my predicament is strange,
a few weeks ago my power supply started buzzing slightly when I turned it off,
Then that psu failed, I replaced the psu with another, I thought it was just a dud unit, then tonight the exact same symptoms have started again, I'm worried that this is an inherit problem with the pc, rather than just having two dud power supplies, does anyone know what could be causing this?
jargon can be used I will understand, sorry for any typos this has been typed on a phone. =/ Please advise,

I'm too poor at the moment to be able to afford a new PSU
but I need a temporary solution
I managed to salvage the old fan from an old PSU

my current is DC12V 0.13a

and the old one is DC12V and 0.23a

I just want to know if it'll be alright to replace the buzzing fan with the 0.23a one as a temporary solution until next week when I get paid

thanks
 

A:Buzzing PSU fan

sure. the old one also has higher wattage.

current wattage is 12 x 13 = 156 watts (very undersized)

old PSU is 12 x 23 = 276 watts (somewhat better, but still undersized.) I assume you have an older computer. Neither PSU is sufficient for a new system. Most new systems can't run well with less than 400watts.

Case?

Did you install the motherboard on the same case? Maybe you just need some case fans to cool the processor. Generally two case fans are requested.

Hi, everyone,

I have a 19" LCD monitor by Medion, about 3 years old, and for the last few weeks it's been making a buzzing sound when I power it on, when there's a video signal. There's no noise when there's no signal. It's pretty loud for the first 3 seconds or so, and then drops down sharply in volume, but never goes away entirely. There are no speakers in it. Changing the resolution doesn't seem to help. Is this anything that can be fixed, or is it just not long for this world?

Thanks!
