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

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

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?

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

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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?

Hey guys I need help with my Acer H257HU Monitor audio output making buzzing noise to external speakers. Whenever I play games like Borderlands 2 or an older game Burnout Paradise I hear a buzzing noise coming from my external computer speakers plugged into audio output from monitor. I made sure the green audio cable is plugged all the way in monitor's audio output and it still makes buzzing noise. Listen to it for yourself. It is really annoying noise. I am 100% sure there is nothing wrong with my Acer H257HU Monitor.

Here is the recorded audio clip of the buzzing noise I hear from monitor audio output to external computer speakers.

when I boot the computer, I do not have access to the keyboard or mouse. System restore is turned off. THe keyboard works in the boot menu and in bios. bios shows the mouse and keyboard enabled. I tested the mouse on another system, and it worked fine. I also tested another mouse on this system and it failed to work in the same way. If I go to last good config in the boot menu, I can boot and have use of the keyboard but not the mouse. I cannot get into safe mode because it won't let me do a combination of last good boot and safe mode, so I cannot type anything in the login window. When I go to last good boot and navigate via keyboard to the device manager, there is no entry for the mouse. when I open the control panel and then open mouse properties and go to the hardware tab, it shows no driver and no mouse.

The fact that there seems to be a logic to this leads me to believe it is a virus or rootkit of some sort rather than a hardware problem.

ANy help getting my computer back would be greatly appreciated. Hoping to avoid a reformat.

So this issue started with my new build. Originally I was using a Logitech G19 keyboard and Logitech Performance MX mouse. After building the PC, I updated to the latest BIOS version. After installing Windows and during the numerous reboots when installing updates/patches, I noticed that sometimes as Windows was loading, my keyboard would not be lit and thus I could not enter my password into the login screen. A reboot or two would usually resolve the issue so I was just dealing with it.

Now, starting two weeks ago when I upgraded to a Razer BlackWidow Chroma keyboard and a Razer DeathAdder Chroma mouse, EVERY time that I boot, the keyboard/mouse will light when the PC is powered on and remain lit until Windows splash screen. Then, right before the login screen appears, the mouse and keyboard lights will go off and I will not be able to login to Windows (ie: keyboard and mouse do not function). However, if I move the mouse as the lights go out, the lights will come back on and both will remain operational.

As this occurs towards the end of Windows loading, I'm leaning towards this being a Windows issue. I've just never seen this before and have no idea how to fix it.

I can give the full hardware specs if needed (or you can check my system details to the left), although I don't see how other hardware would be a factor.

Hey everyone.

I hope this is the correct place for this kind of problem.

I would say, about two months or so ago, i starten having the problem where devices that are plugged in to the USB ports stopped responding.

Mouse went dead (Using the Logitech G9x, and the "sensitivity" light would start flashing)
Keyboard went dead
Headset sort of died, i still had sound, but i am unable to use voice.

Only solution was a "hard shutdown" of the computer.

The problem have been there since then, with an average crash every other day, and some days up to 3-4 times.

I'm not sure what other information i should add, but let me know and i will supply it.

Thanks in advance

p.s. Might also add that during this time i have also had quite a few randomly apearing BSOD

Good day,

Everything on my computer was fine this morning when I left for week, but upon my return I noticed that my keyboard/mouse wasn't working. I restarted my computer and confirmed that my keyboard works in the bios and whatnot, but when I get to the windows login screen, I get no response from the keyboard or mouse.

The mouse is a simple USB one, and I'm using a PS/2 keyboard, so I doubt it's some sort of sudden driver issue.
I tried logging into safemode, and I get the same result, can't move my mouse or use my keyboard.

Does anyone have any idea how to possibly fix this issue? I'm unable to restore from an earlier state either.

Thanks in advance for the help.
 

A:Sudden loss of keyboard/mouse input

Do you have a Windows Disk? If so you can boot to that and choose the repair option instead of the install.
If you don't have a Windows disk, can try another mouse and keyboard. If another mouse and keyboard work then the keyboard and mouse drivers can be removed and windows will automatically reinstall them on boot.

Hi all,
my daughter has an Acer Aspire 5 --A 515 51G laptop with windows 10, 10 days ago she cracked the screen which we got replaced and all went well, 3 days ago it had done a windows update, 2 days ago when she booted it up to use it at school she had lost the use of the Touchpad, Keyboard, No wifi option, and No sound device.
First I removed windows updates from 3 days ago with no luck. Than I downloaded all drivers for this machine from acer website no luck. than I reinstalled windows after backing up her data files no luck. than I re downloaded the drivers from acer and I got the sound to work until I had to restart than lost sound again and could not get it to work again.

a couple of points ----- when I do a restart the screen turns off but the keyboard stays lit up but screen wont turn back on. Power button on keyboard does work.
When the laptop restarts and it is at the login screen I can use the function buttons to turn the screen on and off and the touchpad on and off but only for about 10 secs than it wont let me do it. but mouse pointer does not move.
I plugged in a usb mouse and keyboard which works and I have it connected via ethernet.
I am not sure if the cracked screen is the original cause or not.
The only thing I have not done is a complete format and install of windows.

Thanks

I found that locking (windows + L) and login back in frees up the mouse again...but typically freezes shortly after pretty fustrating, especially when one of the main reasons I buy Lenovo is their trackpoint. I've seen people have similar issues but no resolutions in their threads.

okay, so i haven't got it working as of yet, no power to keyboard or mouse, both usb, and no output to monitor. lights and fans all come on though? so that means there must be some power?

i have removed everything but the mobo, psu, cpu and screen/mouse.
also, have 2 processors and it doesn't work with either
the motherboard was sent back to the supplier to check for faults but it works fine apparently.
No video cards or anything like that.

I'm at a bit of a loss really

Firstly, Thank you all forr this very informative forum. Kudos to the Mods and Admins!

I have a home built computer that was working great until I added the Win7 RTM trial a while ago. I have since removed it, but I will likely go for broke with it after the first SP comes out.

My Machine:
ABIT IP35 mainboard
Core 2 Duo 3 GHz processor
Phoenix BIOS : Phoenix Technologies, LTD 6.00 PG 05/24/2007

During boot, I am able to use keyboard and mouse to access BIOS. Once the boot loader starts, the screen asks to select the OS to boot. Key board and mouse do not function at this time.

Once the count down completes, the system boots normally, and the keyboard and mouse become active again.

My boot loader follows:
[boot loader]
timeout=5
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptIn


Any suggestions or pointers?

Thanks;

Pat

A:Keyboard and mouse shut down during startup.

Trucker, what do you have on partition(0)? Also, under bios, which hdd do you have as the first one to boot with hdd0 or hdd1? If it is set to hdd0 set it to be hdd1. something is not wanting to respond correctly and it is looking like part(0) is what it wants, but????
Is the NTLDR and the NETDETECT.COM files from xp pro or win7?

Hello,My problem is this: I have an old  set of speakers such that the left speaker eventually stopped working.
Upon taking it apart, turns out the wire was just pulled away from the solder to the pins.I replaced the wire and it was good as new.
After a few months of use, (once in a while use) the left speaker "stopped" workingI later discovered that it still works, but is very very quiet.Such that, I have to set the right speaker balance to 9% and left to 100% to get the same volume from both speakers.I took it apart today, re-glued the wires back to the pins, no difference.
So I am wondering, with Dell Audio client, and my Dell xps 8700, which has a front and back 3.5mm audio jacks, can I set the balance to the front port to be my 100/9 for the speakers, and 100/100 for the back which connects to my headphones?
I took a look in the audio client, but it looks like no such option exists.Do I go looking for a new set of speakers or is there an easy option here?

A:Can you change the balance output on a specific audio jack output with Dell Audio?

I believe both jacks are controlled and connected to the same ports and software so directing one to do one thing and another to do something different isn't possible as far as I know.  Maybe someone will have a different answer, but I don't think Dell's software is advanced enough.

Hi,

My name is Gabe and I am first off NOT a computer expert. I know enough terminology to get me in trouble but I don't pretend to be a expert.

Here is the setup with the issue:

HP Pavilion Elite m9360f PC running Windows 7 Ultimate x64

2 monitors (both running from DVI ports)

USB Mouse and Keyboard


The Issue:

While I am using the computer the mouse and keyboard will randomly SHUT OFF. No power, no nothing, its like the USB port suddenly turns itself off. The screen is still up but the mouse is frozen.

I am then forced to hard reset. When I turn the computer back on it fires up just fine blinking away but the screens don't engage (aka the light on the screen (Samsung Sync Master 206BW) just blinks in standbye mode, aka never receiving a signal from the computer).

The mouse and keyboard also never light up.

I am then forced to hard restart and the same issue keeps happening.

Usually after about 5-8 times the screens light up and the mouse and keyboard turn on. I can then start my computer normally

I then will get a random amount of time before it starts all over again.


This is incredibly frustrating so any help anyone can provide will be MUCH appreciated.

Thanks a billion,

Gabe

I am very upset with HP.  I purchased my computer on 1/16/16 and have had nothing but problems with it.  I have spent more on this computer than any other in my lifetime. Since I am retired, I treated myself to a computer that I thought would be my last.  I will be 80 in 3 month, and don't think that means I don't know much about computers.  I have been using them and troubleshooting for myself and others since 1980!  Hp has been my choice for most computers.  However, this computer has been a problem from the getgo!  Starting with the keyboard and mouse.  I have spent hours with tech support, had them access my computer and do everything I had already done, to no avail.  Now my audio is gone and once again I have spent hours with tech support both HP and others.  HP wants to  do a complete restore which will wipe out all my new programs and bookmarks.  Other tech support tells me that there is a hardware failure and needs to be repaired.  However, HP wants me to do without a computer for 2 wks while they try to figure out what is wrong.  I cannot do without my computer that long as I use it for all my financial dealings.  They won't offer a refund since I have had it for over 30 days, even though I was in contact with tech support within the 30 days.  The keyboard, mouse and audio are not working.   I want satisfaction!!

Hi all,

I created this account just to post this here. I've searched my behind off trying to find a solution to these problems and while I've found many similar issues and tried many different solutions none of them has solved the issue. This is an issue that 3 of our staff members have had.

The background:

This is my work computer. The specs are in my description (to the best of my ability). Our IT stuff is managed by an offsite company that is halfway across the state and has no apparently no idea how to fix this (maybe they're too busy currently as it is a new year?).

I recently had my computer replaced. The previous computer was old and was retired. It was the same OS so when they brought in the new one they used some software to download all of my settings and put them all on the new computer. The new computer was allegedly a Windows 10 computer that had 7 installed on it as we use some specialized programs that don't work with anything beyond Windows 7.

My peripherals did not change during this transition. I am using a (fairly old?) Logitech MK320 wireless mouse and keyboard combo. The USB ports on the new computer are all USB 3.0, which I believe is significant as the previous computer did not have USB 3.0.

The issues:

The first problem that I noticed was that there was some severe mouse lag coupled with an inability to use the middle scroll wheel to scroll. The scroll wheel button works, however. Next, the USB ports won't detect any portable memory (thumb driv... Read more

A:Lag and audio stuttering when using wireless mouse and keyboard

Hi Operator,
W7 does not have any generic USB3 drivers.
You have to load your own, (ie for any usb3 device you use you must load drivers that came on the relevant CD.).

If you goto device manager i suspect you will see 4 yellow ! marks.
These are the drivers you will need to update..

As your running from a remoted comp, you may have to gain clearance from your IT Admin, or your 3rd party AV people, although you have made all the right moves, i suspect this is the case

I have had my Thinkpad connected to a Samsung TV via HDMI cable (through a Thinkpad dock) for months with no problems. After the latest Lenovo updates (see attached screenshot file) my Thinkpad intermittently fails to recognize the Samsung TV as an audio output... it does not register as an audio device in audio settings nor in control panel, yet it does still connect to the TV as a 2nd monitor and video works fine. It seeems to alternate every other time that I boot up the computer. One boot-up it fails to recognize the TV as an audio output, then I'll reboot and it works.

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.

Common problem reported on the internet, when using an external mouse and/or keyboard on my Precision 5510 which uses Realtek Audio and USB drivers, the mouse stutters and the keyboard also stutters in that if I am typing when the issue occurs, the keyboard thinks my last key is still depressed and it looks like "thissssssssssssssss"
This happens every 5 to 20 seconds, and makes the device simply unusable. The problem occurs in all of these scenarios:

Blue Tooth Mouse
USB wireless mouse/keyboard connected to the laptop's USB port or to a Dell docking station
Occurs with both the thunderbolt Dell docking station, and the USB3 model (I use both, one at work, one at home office)
Occurs with a wired mouse as well

Laptop is pretty much out of the box, all updated with Dell's recommended software upgrades and patches. Problem got exponentially worse after upgrading to latest bios on 8/1/17.
Searching tech forums suggests a conflict with the Realtek drivers. I was able to temporarily resolve the issue by uninstalling the Realtek USB and Audio drivers, but then my sound does not behave correctly - system won't recognize my headphone jack nor my external speakers connected to either docking station. After a couple of reboots, Windows re-installs the driver again and the issue returns.
Please help, willing to send any diagnostics necessary. The device is effectively useless in this condition unless I use the on-board keyboard and mouse which defeats the purpose ... Read more

Hi community,  I'm expiring strange issues on some of our X380 Yogas when working with a USB-C Dock (Type 40A0). The cursor starts to freeze for a second, and then jumps, sometimes the keyboard types unwanted letters (I don't know the english word for it, but e.g. I would like to type Thinkpad, and out comes Thinkpaaaaaaaaaaad or Thinnnnnnnnnnkpad), and on a connected USB Headset the audio quality is bad. This happens only with USB devices connected over a USB-C Dock, if directly attached to the Yoga its fine. Also the internal Keyboard and Trackpoint are working fine. There are not always all 3 problems the same time. And usually after a clean boot everything is OK, it happens only after undocking, and docking in again.  On some computers having that problem, installing the USB-C Dock Firmware update fixed it. But on some others it does not. Anyway installing this Update is a pain, since it cannot be installed unattended. Maybe any ideas here? I have not contacted Lenovo support yet about this. Regards, DJ

Hello everyone. Before I start I must warn that I'm terrible with computers. This is my real first time unplugging the power supply. Still, I'll try and provide as much information as I can.

A few days ago my computer turned on but then shut off really quickly, like half a second later. No power was running through it after that and I had to unplug it and wait a bit until it would even get any electricity for the half a second the next time I tried. The day before it had worked fine and had no problems but I had been hearing a strange buzzing noise for a brief moment when the computer shut down. Because this noise came from the back, I thought it might have something to do with the power supply.

I believe my tower is a Cooler Master and has multiple different parts installed. My mainboard is an MSI 760 GM-P23 FX. The power supply is a Cooler Master RS500-PCARD3. I have an AMD heatsink.

I changed the power supply for another one that should work and plugged in just the 24 pin into the motherboard and the 4pin near the CPU. Nothing happened when I tried this power supply at all. It got no power and it didn't even turn on for a moment. I tested the two powesupplies via the PSU paperclip test and both started up so I tried my old power supply on my motherboard and now it does the same thing it did before. I'm not sure why the other power supply seems to not get power.

Why do you think my computer isn't getting power and what can I do?

It seems pretty simple. I installed Windows 10 despite being told it wasn't supported. My choice, my fault, my problem?

In March 2017 I still see an absence of support. This seems like a fact of life...a dead end..no options...take a hint, self...

If this model is not supported for the current Microsoft operating system, do I need to just wipe the hard drive and install Ubuntu? Windows 10 weill not allow regression to Windows 7 due to time elapsed since upgrade.

I'm having a strange problem in my HTPC. Audio is coming perfectly fine out from the S/PDIF coaxial output, and it's normally connected only that way to the receiver, but now for other reasons I also need to connect it using a 3.5 mm to a small mixer. So in the sound manager I changed the output to the "Speakers", and in fact the Realtek sound manager detects that a cable is plugged into that output and shows me the dialog where it's selected. Problem is, nothing comes out.

I know it's not the 3.5mm to RCA cable because I plugged in my phone, played some music and I can hear it just fine. But the rear speaker (green) output puts out no sound at all, as I also tested it plugging headphones. On the Sound Windows panel where you can select the playback device I can see the volume level move up and down when I'm playing any media file, as well as in the Volume Mixer. If I switch back to the S/PDIF output and change the input in my receiver, audio is coming just fine.

I haven't tried the front outputs because they are not connected. The motherboard has HD Audio but the case has AC97 connectors, so I never cared to connect them because I don't use them. I know the rear green output worked at some point because I remember having a pair of computer speakers connected to it a few years ago.

Hi,

I'm about to re-install my DAW (see profile) hoping to solve the phenomenon.

Here are the symptoms which are driving me nuts, and which is the MAIN problem I need to solve:
If I raise the sound volume (and I mean "medium") I can hear
a) a deep sonic "heart beat" through the subwoofer
b) some Star Wars Jedi sword fight like "buzzing" sound when moving the mouse or a window is being resized, dragged or scrolls

If I turn up volume to 60-70%+, a crackling sound adds to the "heart beat" in the subwoofer which makes it sound like a turntable reaching the end grooves of a vinyl record (turntable and vinyl records = hardware/media used in the pre-CD area ;-> )
Speakers are Tannoy monitors for the front channels, Heco for the rear, a Canton subwoofer, and a 2nd set for audition recordings with a cheap vanilla 5.1 PC desktop set. Both speaker sets buzz along with my mouse and any windows actions on the desktop ...

The PC is supposed to be used as a DAW (digital audio workstation) for video editing, music recordings, and (serious) 3D graphics (not games)

I was able to drill down the "heart beat" problem to the onboard LAN card: as soon as I disable the device (BIOS or device manager) the beats are gone.

The former setup (XP pro SP1) caused the very same problems, but apparently a *new board* and replacing the video card didn't solve this. I still have another ATX power supply here with "PFC&... Read more

If you are going to start clean, you may want to try this approach, especially if you plan to shell out for some REAL audio hardware. Someday I paln to get some REAL audio hardware too.

I've read a ton of posts here lately about people having issues with Creative Labs sound hardware. The most common problem seems to be incompatable drivers with OEM packaged hardware. I have a hard time knocking Creative Labs. You usually get a lot of bang for the buck out of their products, but they've become just a freaking huge outfit, and with that comes issues a new. I'm still using a rather old Sound Blaster Live for my stereo mix, but it's connected to a California Audio Labs DAC because the SB's DAC is completely unacceptable.

From reading your system profile, I do not see any obvious hardware conflicts. I would look at IRQ sharing via system information. WinXP tends to stack sound hardware and everything else on IRQ11. If you are using a USB mouse, and XP has USB and sound hardware sharing the same interrupt, I'd bet you a pair of twinkies that's your problem. I have NOTHING USB on my audio work station. I had a USB printer that was causing audio glitches once upon a time. Under normal circumstances, WinXP views sound hardware as low priority. It'll cough up resources for even a NIC before audio.

No sound.
Little speaker with the red 'x' appeared yesterday
I have gone through the whole update drivers circus to no avail, my laptop can't detect that it has speakers built in so it doesn't bother finding a driver for them.

This is where I am at:
- Intel Display Audio is the only driver installed for sound
- This means that sound works when the laptop is plugged into an HDMI
- When HDMI is not plugged in, the computer cannot find the built in speakers.
- I have Linux on this system and audio does not work there as well

I would call this a broken chipset, but the fact that the computer still processes audio with the HDMI cable attached is confusing me. Also, the 'audio board' for this laptop has 2 usb ports attached to it, and those both work fine.

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?

I can't seem to figure out what's up. All of my drivers are up to date, I've tried disk defragmentation, even did a registry cleanup with Registry Easy (which for some reason dramatically increased browser loading times so I restored a backup), but nothing seems to be helping.

This happens in games too, frequent pausing and hanging, but mostly I notice it in youtube. The sound will either skip (even if it's buffered) or it will glitch and do this horrible buzzing noise.

It seems to be related with my mouse occasionally hanging in one place as I'm trying to move it. I've tried using Resource Monitor but I'm not really 100% sure how to see what's going wrong.

I've tried googling this issue, but none of the quick solutions on other forums seem to do the trick.

Hi GuyFaux,

Are you using the onboard audio integrated onto the motherboard? If so, try re-installing the sound card drivers. If you can, try to get your hands on an add-on sound card and install it on your computer and see if the problem persist while using the spare, add-on sound card.

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.
