annoying buzzing sound

Q: annoying buzzing sound

I don't know which category this question belongs to but..

Ever since a couple of days ago, there's been this annoying buzzing sound that's playing over all my media files. It doesn't always persist but seems to go on and off every 30 seconds or so. I did some searching but as the problem is very vague, I wasn't able to find a definitive answer on whether it's the hardware or what not. There HAS been a similar problem posted here back in janurary that I found with google though, and the original thread is here:

http://forums.techguy.org/multimedia/671776-annoying-buzzing-sound.html

As you can see the problem was not answered. And like the previous person, I don't think the media files were damaged in anyway as videos also exhibit the same problem. At first I thought i was because of lag caused by bittorrent, so I restarted my computer. However the problem persisted. I've run adware and virus scans dozens of times and they can't seem to pick out the problem either.

As for the suggested solutions:

What's the difference between directsound and waveout? If that's the problem, how can I change it?
As for EMI, that's probably not the case either since both my cellphone and DS lite are turned off. Please help me out if you know what's causing this problem because, as the title suggests, it's VERY annoying. Thanks in advance.

--------------------

On a side note, I've first noted the problem after I installed win-amp. Is it possibly caused by (my best bet) winamp settings? Because the thing is, I've tried using windows media player and it has the same buzzing sound. However this could also be caused by the installation of winamp and changing the sound output settings (?)

---------------------

On a side side note, i'm using a hp tablet pc and my OS is vista. i'm also using realtek high def audio.

Are you using a desktop computer with external speakers? Or a laptop? I heard laptop speakers can blow pretty easily and not be able to output certain notes from the music. Same things goes for external speakers im pretty sure.

for a few days now my computer's not been playing songs properly, there is frequently a distorted buzzing sound over them, it seems to go on and off when different notes or tones are played.
and i've no idea what's causing the problem, whether it's because of hardware or software.
ive cleaned out the whole pc, and re-installed the sound driver (reltek high definition) but nothing has worked so far.
i dont think the tracks are damaged in any way because the audio is also distorted on games and video's as well.
it's not the speakers either becuase headphones play the buzzing sound too.

if you have any ideas on what could be the problem or what component might be causing it, please let me know

Hey everyone,

I just got a new rig about 2 months ago and ever since I turned it on for the first time, on startup it has really loud annoying beep and buzzing like

beeeeep....ZZZZZZZZZZZ...beeeeeeep...zzzzzzzzzz

all the way until I click on the user account I want.

I could not figure it out!

Thanks in advance

You have a hardware problem, consult your owners manual. It's a new rig and should still be under warranty.

Greetings all!

I'm new to the forums and thought I'd ask about my little issue here (was recommended by a friend!).
I bought a new GPU some time ago, an MSI R9 270, which works great. The problem is that now whenever I'm playing games, there's a buzzing sound on my headphones. The buzzing gets louder or quieter depending on how much activity is going on the game. When I quit out of the game, there's still a buzz but a very quiet one.

I've unplugged my headphones from the back audio jacks and used the one at the front instead and there's no buzzing noise.
Is there something wrong with the audio ports now? But it didn't do this with my old GPU.

Any ideas?

Thanks for reading.
Ian

Just built a new computer, and everything went smooth except that a small but sometimes very noticeable buzzing comes out my headphones. I cant really explain it other than its a high pitched buzz, that changes frequency depending on whats on my screen. On the desktop, or web browser its very fast, while when I go into a game it slows down but becomes louder. And when something is loading, as in when i bring up firefox, it pauses for a second, then continues buzzing, or when loading a game, at the loading screen it is completely quiet, then when I am in game, it continues. Another wierd thing is, if I am scrolling through a long webpage or text file really fast, the buzz will vary depending on how fast Im scrolling.
I actually had to take my sub woofer out because i t was amplifying the buzz probably almost 20-fold, so I'm going straight from headphones to the computer.
Also, changing the sound volume on the computer does not change the buzz.

Now, as far as I know, i have the latest sound drivers, I went to my motherboards website, and downloaded the audio driver for the gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L. Other than that I dont know what else it could be.
Here's a dxdiag, if that helps.

A:Buzzing sound on Pc fan

It could be that something (like a wire) has found worked its way near the fan and is just touching the fan blades. The fan itself could be on its way out.

I would suggest, opening up the case and starting the PC to identify exactly which fan is causing the noise. Have a look around it and make sure nothing is near / in the fan blades (clean out the inside while you are there).

When I change the volume using f6-f8 (which on my laptop are volumeMute, volumeDown, and volumeUp), I sometimes get this strange buzz like sound while the volume is clicking up. It will just be counting up and then go --buzz---. If I'm watching a movie or listening to music, it interrupts the music for a short time to buzz and then goes back.

Hello everyone im having issues with my motherboard soundcard because i have recently purchased a new keyboard that had the cables to connect into the soundboard, when i plugged them in the volume increased and a buzzing sound was noticeable. I downgraded the soundboard to another driver and the volume went low again and the buzzing sound almost dissapeared but still there, you can notice it when you use the volume from windows, from 0 to 1 there you can notice a little buzzing sound, and my question is if its a electric failure or ai can fix it with anything else. Thank you for your support.

A:Sound buzzing

Many wires and cables and more chance of electrical interference. It also depends on signal to noise ratio, top notch device have it high and other ones so-so. Make sure cables are not close to power cables and other inductive stuff.

I have a Lenovo ideacentre 700-27ISH AIO.  The computer has been working fine until recently when it developed a "buzzing" sound.  I've run a hardware scan on the storage devices and they passed all tests. About the only thing left that I can think of that might cause this sound would be the fan, but there are no tests for that component that I am aware of. My unit is still under warranty. Should I file a service request? Has anyone encountered this buzzing problem and if so, what was the solution?

 Hi fairmarketvalue ,
 
Greetings.
 
Would that be a constant buzzing noise or intermittent?
Would it also be heard in BIOS ?
 To access the BIOS restart and tap on F1  ,
 
There also would fan on the power supply unit aside from the systemboard to consider .
Is the sound coming from the back or more at the inside?
 
You can run a temperature test if the noise would also happen on a particular teperature using this .
 
Having those above check would help identify needed parts for repair .

This has been an ongoing problem for the last month or so.

I've been hearing some irregular sounds from my computer lately. An unusual buzzing sound. I'm thinking that it's from the fan and the computer possibly overheating.

Also just tonight, the computer shut down by itself. I checked the power light, and the light was blinking on and off.

I wanted to know what the problem was.

I'm running an HP Pavilion 6370Z/Windows '98

Take the side of your panel off your computer case and look at your fans. You may need to clean the dust out of your computer or get new fan(s). The computer probably turned off because it over heated.

HELLO,
I have a HP t650 UK Pavilion desktop computer that has been upgraded to Microsoft Windows 7
The mother board is the ASUS K8N8X-la and the sound chip is a Realtek AC 97 Audio. All the audio works fine with the exception of the Microsoft Studio Life web cam. When this is connected to say Skype or Messenger the audio is fine and at the correct volume, but there there is permanent buzz and crackle on the speakers and earphones.
I know the web cam is ok as it works perfectly on other computers I have checked in the device manager and the Motherboard and the sound chip drivers are up to date.
I would be grateful if anyone can help me with this problem.
Thank you
Jaysto

A:Buzzing sound using web cam

Using the inbuilt audio in the Studio Life web cam, if you are getting the crackling sounds, my first suggestion would be to turn down the sensitivity of the web cam. As you say it works fine on other desktops, it is probably just the software on your desktop that is making the sensitivity too high (picking up background noise).

Another thought is that noise might be from your desktop, if the web cam is sitting on the desktop. Trying moving it away from the computer.

Also after the buzzing sound it turns off then back on then a light buzzing sound for a bout 4 or 5 mins then i think its gone.

Hello, I hear a buzzing noise in my headhones when plugged into the headphone jack of my aspire 5760-6025. I can fix the issue by running the driver update executable file Vista_Win7_R249.exe However when i do this i can see no stereo mix channel under my recording devices on windows 7 64-bit. I need to see this option because I am a musician and I need to record the sound I hear on my computer, in order to capture the effects within the live recordings I do. I can do this if I update the driver with the Vista_Win7_R249 exported to program files folder named realtek then update the drivers through the device manager. However when I do this I get the buzzing noise again. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Edit/Delete Message

A:realtek buzzing sound

Since no one responded perhaps im not asking the right questions. Why would the exe version of the realtek drivers install differntly then updating the driver in the device manager and selecting the unzipped folder? The difference between the two things is this: one is you can see the stereo mix within the recording devices, and the other one is the buzzing noise. When updating the drivers from device manager I have both the stereo mix and the buzzing noise, the .exe driver download i have no stereo mix and no buzzing noise. What makes these install differently? The drivers can be found at: http://www.realtek.com/Downloads/downloads...p;GetDown=false (hit accept to see the latest driver downloads) I downloaded both the zip and exe version for windows 7. If anyone knows the answers to the above questions or knows information about the stereo mix and the buzzing noise, please post, any info might lead to a solution thanks again, cody

RELEVANCY SCORE 49.6

Hi, I am experiencing problems with my speakers. Every time I play anything the sound becomes distorted and there is a small buzz, as if the frequencies/sounds are too much for the speakers to handle. It even happens on system sounds. It started happening about a week to 10 days ago, and I think it was after Windows installed a substantial package of updates. I am also under the impression (although I can't be sure) that it doesn't happen directly when I turn the computer on and play something, but if I am playing something and then a system sound or a sound from another source comes up, that's when the distortion occurs. If I plug my headphones in the sound is great and there are no issues.All my drivers are up-to-date, I manually installed the latest ones two days ago but that didn't seem to solve the problem. I've also made sure that the sound levels (audio output) are not too high.  Any ideas would be much appreciated, as this is becoming very annoying and I am beginning to wonder whether the speakers are somehow damaged. It's barely been 2 months since I bought this computer, so this is quite upsetting.Many thanks

For some reason, when I booted up my PC this morning, it was going quite slow, in comparison to yesterday, and there was a strange buzzing sound coming through my headphones. I shut down my PC, and booted it up again. Then I got the message that recent Hardware or Software changes made my computer not boot. I clicked further through the options I got from then, and it booted regularly. It was still slow, and I was still getting a the sound.

I also got got a strange crackling sound through my headphones the last week while booting up (when the white text on black screen goes away, it started, and when everything was running, it stopped), but that's gone now.

I switched my headphones for my boxes, and I still got it. After some research, I came to the conclusion it might be that I'm getting "dirty power" or something, but I have no clue what that means. This is the first time this happened.

I have not changed, added or removed any hardware in my PC for the last 4 months, and the only recent application I recall installing was the video game Dragon Age: Origins, 2 days ago.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi! I had now got to the bottom of this problem. And what I figured out:  Problem: Humming / Buzzing sound from HP's (19 - 24 inches ?) (models >2008 ?) widescreen "mirror surface" displays.Users figure: Brightness level affects this sound "pitch".Source of this sound: Power and/or backlight inverter (coil vibrance).Cause: Bad filter capacitor(s) or coil(s) or both.Solution: HP will not repair this monitor under warranty but they will send you a brand new one.DIY solution: Fast: use spray called "transformer varnish" to mount components tightly to PCB so no coil vibration is possible. Better: Replace components (capacitors / coils). Warranty void if varnish is used or components replaced or even monitor case removed.   So call directly to HP support if warranty left. Otherwise try a local tv repair shop or do-it-yourself (diy).

A:Laptop making buzzing sound?

Its probably a fan on your video card, assuming your laptop has one. My laptop does the same thing until it warms up, but it doesn't do it at intervals like you describe. The only way to make it stop is to replace the fan. You might also try a can of air; it may need to be cleaned.

If you think this is something you could take on, and depending what fan needs to be replaced, this is a project that shouldn't be too difficult. All I have to do on my laptop is remove one panel to expose the video card fan. Its just 2 small screws and a plug from there.

You will have to get the replacement fan from the manufacturer, though. It won't be something you can get off the shelf at Fry's.

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.

Hi!
So I don't have a tv, so I connected my xbox one to my Dell Inspiron 2330! I have the sound of the xbox, and I have 1 sound I don't know what is. So basically, I connected my xbox one with HDMI to my computer and some weird buzzing sound is coming from the inside of the computer when I switch to the hdmi monitor! 
Can you help, please?

Just a couple of day ago I plugged my microphone in to my computer and it was working fine, now it just seems to make a consistent buzzing noise every time it is plugged in. I know it is not something with the headphones because when I am talking with someone on Skype I can't hear the noise. Is there any simple way to try and fix this problem, or could it be something to do with the sound card all together? Also, is there any mixer program that is better than the one that comes with vista? Preferably one that gives the option to lower certain frequencies, because I originally thought I could use something like that to try and reduce the buzzing noise. Thanks.

A:Microphone making buzzing sound

The buzzing noise is usually caused by a faulty cable on the mic, but if the noise can be heard through your headset while not using the mic then it could be just picking up white noise, try reducing the volume of your headset and see if the buzzing is still present, if so then you may need to try a different jack for your headset and/or microphone

My computer has started this crazy phenomenon where it goes blank with a single color and makes a loud buzzing sound. The computer does not stop doing this...I have to restart to resolve the problem. At first this was only happening when I played DVDs on the computer. Now it happens at any moment. I have no idea what's going on. I posted a video here:

Any thoughts???

Thank you!
 

A:Screen Blank with Buzzing Sound

Most likely an internal hardware fault which a laptop repair centre will have to look at.

I today bought a USB Trust HS-6200 5.1 headset. All was going well will I loaded up ventrilo, logged on and heard a buzzing, or humming - basically an audible high pitched tone. I have no idea what causes it and although moving some sliders around here and there can slightly alter its volume I cannot get rid of it. Furthermore, when I join a channel with my friends an additional static joins the fray, making it totally unbearable.

I did some further testing and when I go control panel>sound and audio devices>voice>test hardware it plays the same buzz when expecting to hear me.

I then established that if I disable the speaker output it still buzzes. it is only when I choose a mic input in vent that isnt the headset's mic that the buzzing stops. This obviously isnt a satisfactory solution as I do need to use the mic.

Things I have tried:
-muting mic in windows
-installing newest drivers
-restarting
-using different USB ports

I am tired and frustrated. Please someone, help me.
