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.

Your computer may be overheating. Blow all the fans out with a can of compressed air. Consider a laptop cooler.
Does this happen if you listen to music through headphones?

I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop, about 4 years old.

I've had this problem for a while now. Whenever I take my laptop inside my bedroom, unplugged or plugged in, doesn't matter, when I try to watch a YouTube video, 10-30 seconds in my laptop freezes and makes a loud buzzing noise from either my headphones or speakers (depends on what I'm using). If I leave it in my room it can take up to 1 minute to recover, while if I grab it and walk out of my room, and go to the living room it recovers immediately. My bedroom is 11-12 meters away from the router (I'm 99% sure this is an internet issue), and I have 3-4 bars of internet connection when inside it.
We also have an old computer (like 2008 or something, but the specs are pretty bad) and when we used to have it inside my bedroom it would never crash (we use wireless internet with the desktop as well, with a usb wireless adapter). Both are running the same operating system (Windows 7)

This has been a problem since the first time I tried to take my laptop in my room. Due to this problem, I am forced to do everything on my living room aka no privacy. I'm begging for a solution.
I did not buy this laptop, it was a gift from someone from what I remember. It used to have a hard drive which broke (had this problem with the first harddrive), so we changed to another harddrive, then that broke as well and now i'm using a Kingston SSD, and the problem is still here.

Hi there,
When I use headphones with my Surface Pro (Win 8) I cant hear the voices in my videos - the background music/sound effects are just too loud.

How can I fix this? I have tried using the Win 8 Video player as well as VLC Player and I still get the same issue.

I have tried the headphones on my iPhone and have no problems.

It has been a long time since i've used a Windows computer (usually have a Mac) so sorry if this is a silly question.

Thanks in advance
Nathan

A:Voice not loud with headphones - background music too loud

You cou;d try using Winamp as it has an equalizer. Most DVDs the sound track and effects are pumped up compared to dialog. It drives me crazy, but short of demuxing, fixing the audio yourself then remuxing, trying to boost the voice frequencies is about all you can do.

Hey guys we recently had power outage and when I went to turn on my computer it made this loud whirring sound 5 minutes after I started it up. Now it does it whenever I turn it on.

So I shut down the PC and I'm checking around on what to do.

Oh and if it is important I don't really turn off my PC unless I have to install some software or drivers or something. I hope that isn't the cause.

I got the computer about 3 or 4 months ago. I don't know exactly what brand it is but I know that the processor is an Intel core duo(the guy who gave it to me told me it was a Quad core) There are no labels on this computer. It has a clear window with blue lights inside it. I know that it is water cooled and has a Geoforce Gt 8500. I was told to replace the coolant inside the PC once every year but I haven't had it for that long so I don't think it is that. I'm sorry I can't exactly identify what type of computer it is.

To sum it up, after power outage computer makes loud whirring sounds when being turned on and I would really like to know what is going on.

Here I took a few pictures of it plus I checked my bios to get more info.

Intel Core 2 CPU 6600 @ 2.40GHz
Intel EM64T capable

Vista 64bit

Also the front mounted audio input wires are unplugged for whatever reason. Anyone know where/how I can plug these in?

A:ibm laptop makes a very loud constant beep

What is the model and the model number called a type number on the bottom... the model will be something like 600X or T-23. But the type number will be a seven digit one like 2373-8SU.
The problem could be as simple as a stuck key, or as complex as a failed CPU Fan, failed memory, failed hard drive, or a motherboard gone bad.
If it is a repeated beep beep beep etc... with a pause then repeated beeps, count the beeps and tell us. That will usualy be a memory error or a cpu fan or a hard drive... depending on the model and the age.

I had closed my laptop cover a few minutes before (or maybe much less?) so it was in some state of hybernation. When I opened it, I pressed the power button and it made such a loud, high-pitched noise that it was piercing and my ears are still ringing from it.

So i was using my Compaq Evo N620c laptop( Windows XP) and i put it on stand by. When i came back, i started the laptop up and it started making a really loud high pitched noise almost like a whistle. I restarted the laptop and it started making the same noise. I went on safe mode and the noise stopped and everything louded perfectly. Than when i went back on my regular account and it started making the noise again. The noise only starts at the blue loading screen for XP. I had this laptop for 2 years and this is the first time this ever happened.

Will the noise stop if I open up my laptop and use a duster ( high pressure air) and i take out all the dust out of my fan and hard drive?

Thank You
 

A:Laptop makes a really loud grinding noise

No way to tell for sure what the noise is coming from with the info provided. Could be a fan, could be a hard drive. I suggest you go ahead and try blowing the dust out with canned air through the cooling vents. Use short bursts instead of a continuous blast. First blow air into the exhaust port first, then into the intake port. Repeat until no more dust appears.

Try one thing first... mute the sound. Audio hardware can do some strange stuff.

Hello guys, I've had the freezing problem for months and so far no solution. My laptop runs fine when I play games, or browse, as long as i don't watch videos or listen to music, it doesn't mind if online or from my drive. Tried different software but no luck. I would think it's hardware, but i don't have this problem on linux.I ran windows 8 for a few days, didn't see the freezing there, but I don't like the OS.
I think the problem is with the audio drivers or something, I tried old and new ones, but no result.
I am running win7 ultimate 32bit (64 doesn't help either). My laptop is Acer Extensa 5635zg. I attach the Windows_NT6_BSOD_jcgriff2 report+ the everest report inside the zip, where you can find the hardware information about my laptop.

So at work I keep headphones plugged in so I can listen to music/video's without bothering the people around me. I keep it pretty low, around an 8 on the volume scale. When I am watching video or listening to music it's normal. Then if I pause it, and resume it, the sound comes back extremely loud, but the volume stays the same according to the volume level. Anyone else experience this? Anything I'm doing wrong? Do I need to change it?

I know what I'm saying is semi unclear, so I hope you all know what I'm saying. In a nutshell, normal sound when I'm playing music or a video, but when I pause, then restart the video or music, the sound comes back extremely loud, even though the volume level stays the same. To fix it all I have to do is hit the volume buttons on the keyboard and it fixes it, but it'd be nice if it didn't happen at all.

Thanks

Hello,

My CD drive is making loud noises. This doesn't occur all the time. For example,I'm watching a DVD - Criminal Minds Season 4 and it allowed me to watch the episodes fine but when I tried to watch a deleted scene, it made this loud grinding noise and it wouldn't stop even when I clicked stopped in Windows Media Player. It only stopped when I removed the DVD.

This also occurred when I was watching another DVD, I was trying to skip through it and it made that loud grinding noise again but it still played after it got to where I wanted it to be. But with the Criminal Minds DVD, it won't work even when I leave the DVD grinding to see if it'll go to the deleted scene.

I don't understand what's going on. I barely used it before but now it's acting up. I never dropped my laptop or hit it.

I'm attaching the sound it makes. I hope there's a way I can fix this on my own.

Btw, the deleted scene worked on my sister's Toshiba laptop. It made no loud noises. It was smooth.

Edit: Here is the sound it makes. https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resi...int=file%2cm4a It's the one named DVD drive

Hi everyone,
I have a really annoying problem with my Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming laptop. Whenever I want to play games on it, the laptop fans start to make an unbearably loud noise that just doesn't let me play at all. This even happens with relatively old games with low system requirements, such as age of empires 3 and league of legends.
This laptop is supposed to be good for gaming, but the fan noise problem makes playing video games virtually impossible. It looks like the computer is going to overheat and break down at any moment. I bought this laptop almost three months ago. Is there something Dell can do about my problem? Can I get a new laptop under warranty? Maybe it's just a specific problem with the one I bought.
Please give me some solutions, thanks.

A:pc makes loud noice, how to fix?

Please post your system specs so that we can give you some meaningful help.

System Info - See Your System Specs

Are you using your PC for gaming and if so, is it overclocked?

Have you opened things up to check for dust or loose hardware?

I'm loathe to make a snap diagnosis, but I'd be inclined to think your CPU heatsink is not so good and your CPU is overheating, meaning the loud noise could well be the cooling fan cutting in.

You need to be more explicit than your thread title for us to help you as there is more than one cooling fan and any number of reasons why the problem is occurring.

Hi! I've an Advent Roma and since a few days I can't hear sound anymore from videos & music on my laptop. I've checked the speaker, microphone and other settings and it all looks fine. Also did a restore but still the same.

However, when I started up my laptop this morning I heard the Windows tune and then a very loud, continuous beeping sound. It went away when I pulled my screen closer to the keyboard so I presume it is a hardware issue? Maybe connections that are not wired OK anymore inside the laptop?

Question is if I will be able to use external speakers if it's a hardware issue and do I need to get this fixed before being able to add external speakers?

Any ideas, besides getting a new sound card?

A:M-Audio makes loud pop when shutting down

I have a recording studio (Sonar), but use Roland Studio-Capture.

The M-Track is a bus powered unit (gets its power from the USB port) and popping is probably caused by power being applied from the USB port. I don't know how you can stop that. Post on the www.gearslutz.com forum and see if someone familiar with the M-Track can help you.

It was all fine a couple of months ago, but then it suddenly became slower than before. It worked ok at first, but then the situation worsened. Booting up took longer and longer and now it is impossible to do so. The fan also increased in noise and it seems that the conmputer is struggling to startup anything. attempts to fix it via windows recovery failed, as it shutdown halfway through the recovery.

Hey So here's the problem. For a few weeks now, the PC that my sister uses has been making a strange noise. It has only been making it for 3-5 seconds or so after being first turned on, it's intermittent, and I've not gotten around to trying to work out what the problem was until now.

The PC has a few CCFLs in it, and I figured it was perhaps a faulty inverter. However, that is not the cause of the problem. I've also figured out that it's not any of the case fans, or the PSU (though my only way of testing if it were the PSU or not, was to power up the case fans & CCFLs without the rest of the system, so perhaps the problem is only caused with a larger power drain...furthermore, as the problem is intermittent, it may simply not be occurring now that I test the PSU on its own).

I think it can only be something on the motherboard (besides my concerns about it still perhaps being the PSU...), the PC speaker (though I fail to see why, and it really doesn't sound like it's coming from a speaker...), the graphics card, or the graphics card cooler (which I can't power without the card being on, so it's a bit hard to check..).

Now, the last time I turned it on the whine failed to stop, I had to power down the PC. That's really what prompted me to get on it and try to figure out what it is. But, I'm at a loss.

Actually, there is one thing, one little clue, that again points me to the PSU....Once, when I happened to be the ... Read more

Just finished installing my upgrades to my computer, including a nice new H100, and it would appear my hopes for a silent PC one day have been blown out of the water, with this cooler at least. The pump unit is making a sound like...well...a loud pump really, a constant grinding/buzzing/humming noise, kinda like a failing hard drive spinning. I know for a fact they are not meant to perform this way, and I have read many topics about this, but I am a little uncertain still.

Has anyone actually encountered this problem and/or knows how to fix it? Replies I have seen involve:

-Shaking it/bending pipes/generally moving it about (perhaps moving air bubbles?)
-Lowering the voltage (apparently at 12V the pump can be prone to this)

Obviously the shaking/moving thing is a pain cause you just gotta keep doing it till it works (or doesn't), and it requires the removal of the block which requires thermal paste to be reapplied, etc, pain in the ass. The voltage thing sounds very plausible, but I'm not sure exactly how to fix it.

Can anyone give me a specific/accurate explanation of what the noise is and/or how I can (prefereably not might, but rather can) fix this?

Thanks.

A:H100 pump makes somewhat loud grinding noise

Update:

This site here had quite a few solutions such as those I mentioned earlier:
Corsair H100 pump noise

I have tried tapping the pipes, that only made it a bit louder, and I've cycled through the pump settings but that has done nothing. I don't want to remove the block because I'm in debt and I have no thermal paste I can use if I need to replace what is on there already which is probably a good idea. I have no molex to molex adapter I can use to make a makeshift voltage adapter either. Bit of a predicament :P

Hi, There is a strange, very loud intermittent buzzing/screeching noise from the fan of  HP Pavilion TouchSmart 15-n024nr Notebook PC (Model #:F4G16UA). A few days ago the fan started running very loudly. Now suddenly the fan is making a loud noise as it turns on, then it stops (& its silent), then again the noise of fan running and suddenly the loud screeching noise comes from the fan. When i put my hand on the bottm of the laptop on the left side, i can feel the vibrations during those loud buzzing/screeching noises. I ran the system diagnostics quick test and everything came out ok. I also did the components test. All components tested ok except 2 USB ports (which had stopped working earlier, so it was not a big surprise). Can someone help me fix this isue. This laptop is more than 3 years old, so there is definitely no warranty on it. Hope i can understand what is causing this strange noise from the fan. Thanks in advnce.

I have a Dell D600 laptop that the hard drive makes noise as it tried to boot up. It then stops running (it seems) and I get the error message"Primary hard disk drive 0 not found". I don't have a boot disk for this XP system, but does this mean the drive is bad?
 

A:Hard drive makes loud bumping noise at bootup

Almost certainly the HDD has failed mechanically / physically.

Hey. I just want to share my experience with bios update on my hp 8710w laptop and talking to HP support. I updated from F.0E to F.20 and after that fan has gone wild. Under windows 7 it works fine every 2 out of 3 boots, or so. Every other time fan spins fast no matter what the temperature and system load are. This makes the laptop noisy. I normally use linux, and there fan just doesn't slow down after spinning up to cool the system. This is really something you won't want to have, because it turns an excellent and quiet machine into a loud vacuum cleaner. I have enough evidence to assume that the issue was caused by bios update. First it started exactly after bios update when nothing else was changed. Second, some 5 years ago I had a very similar laptop (8710p) and when I updated bios to F.0F, the same thing happened, but I happily downgraded the bios and everything was back to normal. Plus there are reports of others on the internet and these discussion boards in particular. Now with update to F.20.... There is no way to downgrade. It is embarassing: HP released an update that breaks functionality... and there is no way back (except replacing the system board indeed, which is expensive for laptops out of warranty). I was chatting and then talking over the phone with HP support. They aren't really any close to being professionals. First they said that my windows 7 is not officially supported and I should install xp or vista. I got xp installed just ... Read more

Hi,

stupid question: Does very loud music affect a turned-off computer.

I'm organizing a party

Pls, Thx in adv

A:Solved: Loud music

A loud Bass could knock some internal dust loose but I doubt there would be much resulting carnage! More dangerious to a computer is spilled drinks and crashing drunks!

You're as anal as myself... Enjoy the party!!

Eight Forums,

So I open Zune.

I start a song.

It starts off at normal volume, at the quieter beginning part, but then it gets REALLY soft when the more louder part of the song plays.

It never did that before I did a clean install of Windows 8. Do you know what's causing that and how to fix it?

Thanks,

David

A:Music starts off loud then goes soft

Since you did a clean install, did you install the HP provided RealTek sound drivers? If not, give that a try.

If you didn't install the HP RealTek, all you probably have is the generic basic function Windows installed HD Audio Codec.

My laptop: Asus K52JR with Windows 7 Ultimate, Intel Core i3 CPU M350 2.27 Ghz, 3 Gb of RAM, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470.

The problem is that the laptop freezes and makes a sound (from speakers), like a broken Audio CD, then bsod and restart.

First time I had this problem - two weeks ago - I sent it back to be repaired. They changed my HDD. Because my Windows wouldn't start and it appeared a message about hardware/software problem. I mention that the first time when it freezed I was watching a movie and downloading something with uTorrent. It crashed and I got bsod. But it and worked fine after. Another time (when my laptop eventually didn't start anymore) I was playing an online browser game and downloading something with uTorrent. I didn't got a bsod. I had to force it to shut down.

Now, after they installed a new HDD, it worked for two days. But again it freezed, maked a strange sound and restarted. This time I was playin the same online browser game, I was talking with people through Team Speak 2 and downloading something with uTorrent.

I said all these details because I don't know much about computers, and I wish someone could detect my problem.

I'm not sure if this is related or not but I had my brother-in-law put in another hard drive and I had updated my laptop to Windows 10 but both of those changes did not automatically make the problem start. Every time I power up my laptop and windows starts once I get to the sign on screen and there is a background wallpaper which I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it but it freezes. Sometimes it takes me 25 times to shut it down you know press the button hard hard boot several times and then it finally works. And then sometimes I'll get it to work and then all the sudden I hear this click and it shuts my laptop off again. What is going on? do you know is there some way I can bypass to find out? It is on the left...the loud humming and I wonder if it's the fan.
 

A:Loud hum sign on screen then freezes

I had my brother-in-law put in another hard drive and I had updated my laptop to Windows 10Click to expand...

What's the brand name and model name and complete model number of that laptop?

When you brother replaced the hard drive in that laptop, did it already contain Windows 10?
sometimes I'll get it to work and then all the sudden I hear this click and it shuts my laptop off againClick to expand...

It sounds like that hard drive is failing.

So while playing Red faction Guerrilla steam edition my screen went black and I heard a loud buzzing sound from my monitor. Any suggestions?

Cyberpower PC

This has happened twice in 1 month.
I had to reboot my comp after this happened.

A:Game freezes and loud noise

Your video card might be overheating. Check your fan speed and temps in your GPU to make sure that the fan is turning fast enough to keep things cool when you're playing the game. I had the exact same problem with a Radeon 7770. I manually set the fan to 60% and no more problems.

So for the past week, I've had a major annoyance. Whenever I try to do anything, be it music, YouTube, gaming, Discord, or anything else that isn't sitting on the desktop or using Google, my computer often locks up several times in a short time frame. It even messes up my Discord, so I cannot speak or hear anyone. It buzzes during the duration of the freeze if there was audio playing at the time. This problem is driving me crazy, and a solution would alleviate the pain.

Here's the specs:
Processor
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4700HQ CPU @ 2.40GHz

Video Card
Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600

Video Card #2
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M

RAM
8.0 GB

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

A:Short Freezes With Loud Buzzing

This sounds like a problem with your sound card or audio drivers. Most likely audio drivers. If what you hear sounds sort of like machine gun fire, then could you inform us of your current audio drivers / sound card?

Hi. My Toshiba laptop has been randomly crashing/freezing with colorful static on the monitor and loud static noise from the speakers (usually if I'm on youtube). This has been happening on and off for months. Sometimes it just crashes to a black screen and restarts but often it does the dramatic crashing. I don't have a good connection to go downloading troubleshooting stuff and I have no idea if its the battery, the video card, a virus (because rarely on boot-up the microsoft security essentials is turned off or malwarebytes has an error about root-kits that doesn't come up again when its restarted), or what. I don't know what to google to even start finding answers to this problem and I need help.
