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.

After my computer did its usual updates, I've noticed a sound issue whenever I've been trying to play games/watch videos. At regular intervals the audio will freeze/skip for a second and make a loud grinding noise, then resume. This happens with music, streaming videos, games, pretty much everything. If I'm watching a video or playing a game, the screen will freeze for a second, then resume.

I'm using a Dell Inspiron N4110 laptop with Windows 7

I assume I need to install a new driver or something, but I am pretty computer illiterate and don't exactly know what I need/where I need to get it from/how to figure out what I need.

Was hoping someone could help here.

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".

Sorry about the title, I don't know what to say.

When playing any game or watching any video (on hard drive, dvd or streaming) or playing any game (2d simple, 3d intensive) my computer gets lag spikes and stutters, the sound kind of freezes every time it pauses.

My PC has never had this problem before, it started a couple of days ago.

My graphics card drivers are up to date and I have no idea what to do.

Hi there this isn't really for me - I Ient my girlfriend's old computer to a friend and he's been experiencing problems with sound.

When using winamp sometimes after a while the sound stops working. But winamp appears to not actually be playing songs. Like you'll click a song and equaliser bars go flat and don't measure sound like when a song is playing with the bass/treble or whatever going up an down with regards to what's happening in the song.

So it's not like the song is playing and no sound is coming out - the song is refusing to play. This problem is worse when playing pro evolution soccer on mute with winamp in the background.

He says when he's playing COD2 that the sound stutters and does it with increasing frequency and then eventually stops. This mostly happens when there's a lot happening on screen.

Restarting the whole machine seems to sort it out with regards to winamp but sometimes just restarting call of duty fixes the sound issues.

I remember having similar problems with operation flashpoint about 7 years ago but can't remember how I sorted it.

He has:

windows xp home SP2
p4 3.0ghz
onboard graphics
onboard sound

I told him it might be an overheating issue and to take the case off the computer and clean the dust out, could it be slightly more serious like the northbridge cooler gone bad?

Or is it a windows/driver problem?

I know there's not a lot of info here I'll ha... Read more

A:Stuttering/disappearing sound when playing some games or using winamp

Well the onboard sound is actually controlled by the South Bridge chip I believe; from what it sounds like (no pun intended) the drivers could be out of date. Winamp is usually super-reliable so I would check which version he is running and maybe give that an update, which is free. Also, make sure DirectX is up to date and have him run dxdiag to run the sound tests. START > Run > type dxdiag in the bar...

Personally, I would just invest in a dedicated sound adapter. You can get a decent Creative card for around $30 now and the sound quality would be much better anyways.

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

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

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

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

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

Hey,

Basically started last Friday, i installed crisis and played it for a bit and everything worked fine. I then installed black and white 2 and after 20mins of playing it the screen went blank and there was a buzzing noise coming from my speakers.

I then restored by PC to a a couple of days before I installed crisis and Black and white 2 but its still happening whenever I play LOTRO, but this time the blank screen is not accompanied by the buzzing noise from the speakers.

Hi everyone!
I have a Dell Inspiron 15 7567 gaming laptop, and today I noticed, that my laptop makes very quiet ticking sound when it is plugged in. This is strange, because the sound very similar to a HDD's head movement ticking. The only problem that there's no winchester in this laptop, only SSD-s (1 X M.2 NVMe PCI-E x4, and 1 X SATA3 2,5") working in my laptop. In this series there's no optical drive, so the only mechanical units in this laptop the 2 cooling fans. But strangely the ticking is exactly can be heard, when the fans stop. So when the fans don't spin (0 rpm) the quiet ticking sound can be heard.
The second strange thing, if I unplug the laptop from AC, the ticking slows down. After i plug in it again, the ticking continues faster...
Do somebody sensed the same? The ticking comes from under the keyboard, if I lean forward, I can hear it well. I think, that this ticking might caused by one electical unit, and I worry that my laptop will go wrong, although now there's no other problem, just the sound...

Hello,

First off, thank you to anyone who takes the time to read about my problem. I am not expert in computers, but I can usually hold my own. This problem has me completely baffled and I will appreciate any and all help.

I am running Windows 7 professional 64-Bit (student version, pretty sure it is retail), and I having some trouble with my PC. As the title says, I am having completely random BSOD's that are getting progressively worse over time. At first i thought it was a motherboard / RAM issue but I have performed every test I could think of and they all test out fine. Unfortunately, I do not have any known good RAM or another motherboard to test with.

I am pretty sure hardware is causing this issue, I just cannot determine what hardware it is. I have run memtest 86+ without any issues. Memtest86 gave 250,000 errors on test number 7 but after poking around the internet that seems to have an issues with modern CPUs.

I have also ran PRIME95 blend test for about 12 hours trying to coax a BSOD out of the sytem, but it stayed rock solid the entire test. Same thing when I tried to run windows driver verifier (although it was for more like 2 hours, not 12 with verifier).

I use Bluescreenview to look at the minidumps, but I am at a complete loss at what could be causing it. The most common cause is the kernel itself, with the NTFS.sys causing it as well sometimes.

A couple of days ago my pc started to behave weird. It would turn off when I'm playing games. But the weird thing is that the blue light on my pc would not go off, only my monitor would. But I could hear that the tower was making no noise at all. I thought it would be overheating so I oponed my case and cleaned it (it was really dusty). After I cleaned it it worked fine again but the next day I got a weird buzz and at the same time my game stutters/freezes. This happens every few seconds and then stops for maybe 10 minutes and then repeats it self by stuttering/freezing for like 10 minutes again. It's really annoying but I can't rule out overheating because I downloaded HwMonitor and it said that my Geforce GT 320 gets to like 104 degrees while playing games. I cleaned it but I just can't get it to lower. I know the graphics card isn't good but I can't upgrade due to the size of my case.

If anybody knows how I can fix my problem please comment.

A:Buzz sound and freezing when playing games or watching videos

Hi, Welcome to Seven forums.

If it's a constant buzzing sound or a ticking sound I would go with something like a wire brushing against a fan, or possibly a dead hard drive which makes like a grinding squealing noise. It could also be the CPU fan, if it's a really cheap fan and the blade is spun while the fan is not on the motor can burn out. This will usually either stop the fan from moving at all or it will still spin a little and make a grinding hum.

All of these aren't good, like if you were to keep watching YouTube, freeze, reboot, YouTube, freeze, whatever part that isn't liking this WILL die completely eventually. If it's the hard drive, your files may be at stake, or if it's the CPU fan you may need a whole new computer, so this is why I'm letting you know. So I would stop watching videos if you don't have to.

First, update the drivers for your graphic card. Download the latest drivers for the card and Driver sweeper. Uninstall the old drivers, run driver sweeper. It will clean the leftovers of the old driver. Install the latest driver.

Keep the case open and see if the temps goes down. Are you saying 104 C? if yes, you might fry the card.

My old laptop has been having a stuttering problem with games for a couple of years now. It?ll stutter for around five seconds, run smooth for around ten seconds, stutter again for five, run smooth for ten. It?ll keep doing that until I stop playing and close the game. It doesn?t start doing the stutter the second I start the game, it?ll start maybe around five minutes into the game and not quit its pattern. It doesn?t matter what game, how old it is, it does this to all.

It also does this while watching online videos. I can?t watch anything on, for example, Hulu, or Gametrailers, without it doing the same stutter pattern.

I didn?t always have this annoyance. It started little over a year after I bought my laptop. During all this time, while putting up with the problem, I?ve done several clean installs. I?ve tried to solve this myself, but never could find anyone with the same exact problem.

really man?

there are so many factors involved.

it could be the power plug you have plugged into.. the wall outlet/socket.. that causes buzzing..

plug the headphones into other sources and if you notice buzzing.. cdplayer/iphone/ipod..

then when did this start? is it all headphones? have you tried different headphones?

there isn't much to do inside windows but tweak sound settings.. and make sure your sound drivers are the latest... if you have a Realtek audio card etc.. which of course you like many others don't tell us what you have..

It's most likely something power wise causing buzzing.. do you live in an old house?

or the components inside your computer are interfering... from bluetooth to the fan running inside the computer..

I'm guessing power but How to do anything with power except set grounding and voltage levels? which you definitely shouldn't do with your computer..

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

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

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

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

Hello. This is the audio hardware test for the laptop's internal audio hardware. It works differently from the other tests. If no sound is heard through the laptop's right speaker during that test, then the cause is hardware failure. If it passes, then it's software.
If it is software, then download and install a fresh copy of the audio driver. Get it from your model's support page, or I can give you a link. Installing a fresh copy will re-set the audio settings, which would fix it if the cause is mis-configuration of the settings.

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

Hi guys,

First of all merry christmas

I have a weird issue where when I play games my computer, including audio and video, sometimes hangs for 1 second and then resumes again. This seems to happen in every game I play and it's very frustrating.

I checked my processes and I do have a 'System interrupts' process that sometimes pops up. I run Windows 8.1 , have 8GB ram, and use a GTX680 with the latest nvidia drivers.

Attached you can find my DXDIAG report.

I ran CCleaner and also did some virus scans, but no luck.

Any thoughts guys?

A:Stuttering while playing games

well be a scientist and start experimenting!! come on man..

1. turn off all sound in game.. run game. does it stutter?

2. disable sound in your actual windows 8.1 - go into device manager etc.. then run game.. stutter????!!

3. when running a game, (if it doesn't crash it) press shift,ctrl, and ESC. Look for whats using hard drive and look through performance for any % like disk usage..

4. what games are stuttering?

i mean your problem is so in-general (lag in games) its so hard to determine where to start.. but yeah, drivers are a must..

video drivers, hard drive updates, windows updates, sound driver update a huge one....

but if your sound and video hangs.. its hard drive or memory trying to sort it out..

you usually should run games in a clean environment meaning you disabled all services and background apps you aren't using because you are playing a game.. and when you restart your computer all your services will come back anyway..

if you dont know how to do this post here again..

I just bought this laptop the other day refurbished from NewEgg, it was supposed to be a basic setup ( No DVD-R/W, BlueTooth, nVidia Graphics, Camera, Fax, the better resolution screen, etc). But lucky me they sent me one with all those features for the price of the basic model, my point being I REALLY don't want to send it back for a replacement so please try not to suggest it.
 When I first got it I checked the battery and charger to see if it was Dell brand but unfortunately they were replacements like I expected (but the charger is the right voltage). My problem is when I plugged it up to the charger to activate Windows and install updates, after which I started to turn down the brightness from the Fn / arrow keys and when I got to a certain level of brightness the screen went black, after unplugging it and a restart I plugged it in again and it did the same thing again without me touching anything. So for a couple days I just didn't use it while it was charging.
Today I decided to update the BIO's to the latest version incase that was the problem (from A5 to A21 or something like that) and that requires the charger to be connected so I did which gave me the same result, only this time I realized the screen wasn't off it was the backlight  that was off. So having to use a flashlight to see the screen I updated the BIO's and while it was updating the screen was visible again but after it restarted the screen still stayed on but was flickering ...

A:Dell Latitude E6420 screen flickers with charger plugged in?

Good day ,
Here in this situation the issue is prominent when the charger is connected .
Try working on the system with only battery connected to see if the issue is seen only when the charger is connected then its faulty charger issue.
I would suggest you to test the system's display in safe mode with networking as safe mode uses very minimal graphics .
Else update the video drivers on this system to do so go to support site .
Kindly confirm the video card installed on your system is NVS 4200M if it is then you can install the same by clicking on this link .
Also check if the issue is seen on an external monitor with and without the charger connected (This is done to confirm if the system board is working fine ) and initiate the LCD BIST (Buit in self test ) on the system by pressing the D-KEY while turning on the system (if solid colours are seen on the screen along with flickering then its a faulty screen ).
I would request you to try these steps on the system with and without charger .
Hoping to hear from you soon .
Kindest Regards ,

For the record I now how a legit copy of Windows XP which I've just done a fresh install and updated up to SP3.

I will be playing team fortress 2 and suddenly get several second stutters like the HD is chugging or something. It specifically happens when there is some action on the screen.

It also happens when I am watching steaming video. The video will stop for a couple of seconds while the audio continues and when the vid starts again it jumps to meet the audio.

Also when I am scrolling down with the mouse it will get jammed for a second or two then jump down.

Another thing I just noticed while writing this is when I type that too will jam for several seconds then jump.

What's going on here?

Like I say fresh install and it didn't happen before on my previous install. My drivers are all updated (all the common ones).

Hello All,

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

I would really appreciate any help to solve this issue.

Hello,

I've been scouring the web for a while now and haven't found the answer yet.

I'm running a Sony Vaio VPCEB laptop. I used this for gaming a year ago, and have started using it again. Now though, every few seconds while playing a game, the game will stutter or freeze for a couple seconds, then resume. It's made gaming impossible on the machine.

Using PC Wizard, it tells me my graphics hardware is the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD. This is no problem since all the games I play are old or emulated. I can't seem to find a driver for it either.

OS is Win7 x64. Any help you can offer would be great!

Hello,

I'm having some problems for about 3-4 weeks now.

Up until the first BSoD I could load two games at the same time and feel like nothing was wrong or slow. Now when I try to do this (for w/e reason), the 2nd game I start either freeze or loads but when I'm moving the mouse it stutters to 1fps movement, sound too. This happens in both games, exactly the same.

If I don't do anything, main menu animation, music runs just fine...

When I try running a game, for example CS:GO. It works fine a bit, then randomly freeze + loop sound and can't tab out. Only after I End Task the program it goes to normal, or so it seems. Then after I try to reenter the game, it freezes again and I get BSoD.

Another thing I found is, while a game is open and I'm tab out in firefox for example; scrolling, general movement of the browser is not fluid and has some stutter. It lags even when I try to drag something on desktop.

Ran multiple malware scans, even in parted magic (virus scaner) on flash drive boot, nothing of note was found.

Thought the problem was because of some part of the video driver, so I uninstalled it. Rebooted in Safe Mode and ran Display Driver Uninstaller to be sure nothing was left from the previous one, reinstalled the latest one and the problem still persisted. Reinstalled Windows with fresh drivers, same problem.

plz help..... before all those updates it was playing just fine... system restore is out of the question cuz it takes up memory on HD so i deleted it

A:stuttering while listening to music and playing games

Audio is on a shared IRQ (Interrupt) with a higher priority device. Thus the higher priority device can interrupt the sound if it needs to do something and thus you can get the stuttering. There can be other reasons but this is one to consider.

Uninstalling the sound, restarting the PC and then when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound and sometimes Windows will install it on a different IRQ and help with this problem.

Go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the entry for the sound and then LEFT click "uninstall". DO NOT check the box to also uninstall the drivers. Restart the PC.

Been researching this problem (stuttering or chugging lag) for last few days. Unfortuneately I can find nothing conclusive solution wise and am a complete newb when it comes to PC tech stuff. I know enough to get around on my PCs (have 2) and install and play games etc. But when it comes to techincal stuff I am lost. So I finally broke down and decided to try some posting....

Have 2 PCs, older one runs my usual games fine, no apparent lag or problems. Newer one (bit over a year old) seems to have had lag problems ever since I bought it. At first I just assumed the lag was zone lag on the game I was playing (Everquest - online mmorgp) possibly because I was running three instances of the game (multiboxing) and perhaps just didnt have enough ram, but as time went by I noticed that:
1) the lag stutters and chugs
2) is somewhat intermittant - appears and vanishes at seemingly random times for no apparent reason/s (usually the lag issue isn't as bad at night - or if I stay in a certain zone for long periods of time, frequent zoning seems to make it worse - neither of these appear to be very consistant)
3) seems to affect any online games I use on 2nd PC (and thus far that is all I use it for)
4) is present even while one instance of a game is running

While it doesn't actually stop me from what i'm doing it is very annoying, and i'm very tired of having to deal with it.

Hi!
I have bought a Dell Inspiron 15 7567, and yesterday I noticed, that my laptop makes very quiet ticking sound. The sound very similar to HDD's head movement sound, the only problem is, that in my laptop there is no HDD. I use just 2 SSD (1 X M.2 PCI-E x4 [Samsung 960 EVO], and 1 X SATA 3 2.5" [Samsung 850 EVO]). In this model there's no optical drive, so the only mechanical part of this laptop, that coud generate this sound, if it would be mechanical sound, is the fan system. but strangely the ticking sound only hearable when the fans stop spinning.
So I don't think, that the fans would create this sound, because when I can see in AIDA64 that fans speed is 0 RPM, the ticking sound exactly then hearable.
Additionaly strangely, when I unplug the laptop from AC, the ticking sound almost stops (It not stops, but the click sound becomes rare)... After I plug the AC back, the ticking continues...
Do somebody sensed the same? Is it normal? My opinion, that the sound caused by on of the electronical units bad groundings, or something. Although there's no power or other issue with my laptop now, but I don't want to wait until it gets bad...
Thanks!

Hello sevenforums Community,
since about month im getting Bluescreens, which never happened before in 4 years.
It usually get the when i watch streams on twitch (which didnt happen since 1 week on my account though) or currently while playing League of Legends.
But they dont come every game, so i can for example play 4 games in a row and nothing happens or i get 3 one them in one game. Also they can come at any game time. It is kind of random to me how they appear.
The last two days I got about 7 so i really need help from u guys.
In the last two weeks i always got this message (STOP : 0x00007A (0xFFFF6FC50023598,0xFFFFFFFFC000000E,0x000000002A991880,0xFFFFF8A0046B30BE) ) without a sound and the pc didnt instantly reboot.
But the last days the Blackscreen stayed like 4 second so i couldnt see the error message on it, so i dont know if the error changed but there was this buzzing sound.

I really appreciate help (and sorry for my english skills ^^)

Well, this started about a week ago. I thought nothing about it. I thought it may have been a bad driver. So I updated my graphics driver, stuttering is still there. So next I tried to update my hard drive firmware, but the stuttering is still there. Next I tried, to update my bios, that didn't help it. Any ideas?

I am experiencing a buzzing sound when I play music online.  I primarily listen to music through the microblogging site Tumblr.  For example, if I had a song playing for a minute or so and opened a new tab I will hear a buzzing sound for anywhere between 2 to 10 seconds.  Other times, particularly during songs that are longer, the audio will fail and I will get an error message with a red x on the song I clicked.  Neither of these problems happen all the time.  The buzz is more prominent and seems to happen more frequently when I am opening and closing tabs.  
 
I have narrowed this down somewhat.  It does not happen when I play an actual CD in the drive.  It does not happen when I listen to a song on Youtube.  It does not happen if I play an mp3 that I have saved on my computer.  It does not happen when streaming a podcast.  I have listened to podcasts that are over an hour long and did not get the buzzing or failed audio message.  It does not happen in Internet Explorer.
 
This seems to be related to tumblr sites and/or Chrome.  I have pasted a link as an example of a song where this occurs.

You can safely remove flash players re-install, I think your plugin may be out one version... should still work though, but might help. Updating Shockwave is also a good idea as sometimes the technologies are interdependent.
 
Could be a Tumblr bug also... I doubt it is Chrome. Have you looked at the Tumblr support? (if there is such a thing)

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
