Continuous audio buzzing but with sound!

Q: Continuous audio buzzing but with sound!

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?

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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

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.

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.

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.

I hear a buzzing sound from my audio speakers, and this post actually explains it nearly perfectly.




Hey guys. So I finally got finished with my Cosmos Mod (which I hope to have up and posted on the forums soon ) but I'm having some trouble with buzzing and crackling with the headphones plugged into the front jack.

My Cosmos case comes equipped with the HD Azalia front audio connector in addition to the AC '97 audio connector. When completing my wire management and sleeving, I decided to remove the AC '97 connector since I only needed the HD Azalia connector, which is attached to my Creative X-Fi Extreme Gamer sound card. So I simply cut the AC '97 connector off. I did not cap each of the exposed remaining wires as they were very small in diameter and I figured I would just sleeve over it and try it.

Problem: When I plug any of my three pairs of different headphones to the front panel I have buzzing and crackling whether games or programs are making sound or not. I especially have crackling when I move my Razer Death Adder around, which seems really weird. I've got the Death Adder plugged directly into my Logitech G15. By the way, I've also got my wireless Logitech mouse plugged in and when I move that one around, there is no ill effect on the sound. ??

When I've got the headphones plugged in directly to the sound card at the back of the computer, I've got perfect silence. No interference at all with each pair o... Read more

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

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

If so take apart and try to re-solder the connections. If this is too much work or continues to happen try a different set of speakers. Hope this helps.

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.

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?

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

? OS - Vista/ Windows 7 ? W7 Pro SP1 x64
? What was original installed OS on system? custom machine, first OS I placed on
? Is the OS an OEM version (came pre-installed on system) or full retail version (YOU purchased it from retailer)? Technet Key
? Age of system (hardware) ~1 year
? Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS? ~1 year. I have not resorted to reinstalling OS yet.

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

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

Thank you very much for your time.

A:No BSOD, crashes with audio buzzing

Hello there and welcome to TSF (it's a wonderful community, I like it here).

It is possible that something has changed in the past few weeks that triggers the crashes, after about a year of flawless performance, unless this has occurred before, but at a lower frequency. Did you install any hardware components just before the onset of this problem? Perhaps added some more RAM? Talking of which, how much ram have you got and what's the make and model of ram modules installed? Kindly provide more information on your storage setup. Any SSD drives, raid setups etc.

You mentioned sluggish performance after a crash, does it happen only after a crash or is it always this slow at startup? 10 minutes is a long time to wait for a pc of your specs to be ready for user operation. Could it be some task is scheduled to run after logon, a backup task perhaps? A quick look at Resource Monitor should tell what processes are taking up resources during those ten minutes.

Recently, my audio quality has taken a leap of faith and landed two-hundred floors below splattered on the pavement. The speakers play the sound itself alright, but it is accompanied by a buzzing. Like as if someone is talking into a microphone, but the microphone is way too close to their mouth. I've found that this problem can be temporarily fixed by going into my playback devices, speakers, properties, advanced, and then randomly changing the sample rate and clicking apply. This lasts for about 30 mins to an hour. That time can be shortened even further if I am watching a YouTube video (which I am, all day every day) and I pause it. For whatever reason, when I go to play it again, the sound goes back to basically blown speakers. I don't get it. I know the laptop is covered by warranty, and considering it's directly affecting the experience I'm getting from it, I think a free repair/replacement is in order. I've only had this thing for 3/4 of a year. I've never dropped it, I don't listen to the volume on full blast (seldom higher than 40), and quite frankly, this is bull****. I've updated every driver to the latest version, so don't try to tell me that's the problem.

Hello forum!

I have been struggling with this buzzing for such a long time and at this point I think I've tried nearly everything.

When plugged my two cables into the rear end of my PC (The pink and the green), it has imense amount of buzzing. A minor fix for this was: install Realtek Audio Device Manager, and put the output stick from green to the blue. This fixed the issue from constant buzzing, but now, when I play games, any game at all, there is a buzzing matching when I play (Probably synchronized with the FPS).

I tried using my front sticks, which fixed the sound issue for a small amount of time, untill the stick stopped working completely(I also would like very much, if my back sticks actually would work properly). The audio cable to the motherboard(the one in the lower left cornor of the board), was plugged in the AC '97. I tried changing that to HD Audio. Same problem. In the end I even tried disconnecting the cable completely, since it apparently just was the connection from the front sticks, and the might have an effect on audio if unused.

Of course, I also tried reinstalling drivers. (Currently AMD High Definition Audio Device and High Definition Audio Device are installed).

None of this worked. I really need a permanent fix on this. Nearly every part of the computer is farely new (maximum 3-4 months old).

Nothing seem to work, please help

A:Realtek Audio Driver buzzing

The "buzzing" sounds like a "ground loop hum". What else do you have plugged into the computer? Also, is it properly grounded? Improper or no AC Power ground can cause that. Even a defective power cord from the power supply to the AC power receptacle. Even remotely, if the PC is powered into a power strip, the power strip could be defective.

The HD Audio connector should be used as it provides some jack sensing that the older AC97 does not have.

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?

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 .

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.

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.

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.

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".

This occurred today, Just after I had installed a copy of The Secret World, I was in a skype call and playing Dawn of war 2. I noticed the issue, but dismissed it as the computer was simply using too much CPU or something (I apologize, I am only just starting to get into the specifics with computers, sorta new). So I did the obvious, turn it off then on (via restart). Nothing changed, so I shrugged it off an played one game of League of Legends with minimal success not due to computer problems. I restarted after that with a manually scheduled Disk Check. Did it's thing for three hours, came back, messed around, still the stutter and buzzing. Did some fishing around on the net, did a sfc/scannow (don't know what that did), and uninstalled any background components to Norton and MacAfee if they weren't already gone, and updated my realtek codices.

One forum I read with similar symptoms suggested it was my motherboard going. I just want to be sure.

System stuff (it's also on my profile to the best of my abilities)
Computer: Dell XPS 15z
CPU: Intel Core i5 2401M
GFX: Intel(R) HD Graphics Family/ NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M
Motherboard: Dell 0XK6HV A00 (according to CPU-Z)
(I'd need help finding other stuff, but that's another forum issue :V)

P.S. Move this thread to a more appropriate area if it is necessary.

A:Sudden performance stutters and buzzing audio

This happens every minute or so (i did a test, they are about 1 minute thirty seconds apart) and the freeze buzzes last for about half a second.

Please help. Everytime I'm listening to music or watching a video or anything of the sort and other pages on my browser load, there is a horrific buzzing sound that continues on for the duration of the page loading. It's really disruptive and hard to ignore at this point. I love this laptop, but oh my god. Also, it happens with and without headphones on. Please, is there a solution? What is the problem? Help

Hello. I just registered.
My PC keeps freezing while I watch a movie or listen to music. It acts like in this video:

I plugged it into a new wall socket, and cleaned it from dust, updated Windows 10 to version 1511, and I even moved the ram memory in different slots, but the buzz still happens for a millisecond. I haven't experienced this in games afaik though.

Can anyone please help me? It is getting annoying. Before Windows 10, I had Windows 8.1, but I upgraded. This happened with Windows 8.1 as well.

Please someone help me. Many thanks.

So, I downloaded LatencyMon as stated in threads concerning people with my same problem. The closest I got to finding someone with my same problem was when they were having problems with usb.sys or something or other, can't recall the exact filename. What makes my predicament tricky, or so I think, is that the problem is being caused by what seems to be a binary file within System32\drivers named DDDriver64Dcsa.sys and another was ACPI.sys, the former having the highest DPC routine execution time (501188) and the latter having the highest ISR routine execution time. (82.5)

From what I'm reading, I'm interpreting it that DDDriver64Dcsa.sys is the cause of my problems. I've disabled ACPI.sys and it has had no effect on the audio stutters. The good thing is that I know what to try next, the bad thing is that I don't know what to do with this other file. It is a binary file within some other package. Systemexplorer.net has it that "This file belongs to product Dell Diags Device Driver and was developed by company Dell Computer Corporation. This file has description DDDriver.sys." I'm a bit scared to just up and delete it, as I'm not entirely sure what it does.

A:Audio Stutters and Buzzing Caused by DPC Latency

Amazing that I found this. Same exact issue. For about 3 days or so. DDDriver64Dcsa.sys seems to be the culprit but I am not sure how to proceed or exactly how to get rid of it.

Today i have installed windows 7 on 64 bits and i just cannot get past this problem with the sound. I have a 5.1 surround audio system and have installed the latest Realtek HD audio driver on my pc to get all the speakers going.

After the installation of the driver every sound came with buzzing. The music, the clicking on folders, games, anything, every sound was buzzing, just like the static you get on radio, a blurred sound, if i may call it that way. This was the first thing to install on my PC after the Opera browser. I only have the standard High Definition Audio Driver from the windows, no other audio driver, so i don't think that anything can interfere with the Realtek driver. Can this be because it's 64 bits?

Can anyone help please? I've seen this problem on the net but there was no exact answer. Why is Realtek software acting this way? I tried reinstalling or tried older versions, nothing helped. :??:
Can anyone give any piece of advice?

A:Realtek HD audio driver buzzing on windows 7 64

Welcome to the Windows 7 forum.

If you have RealTek, you should not also have the "High Definition Audio Codec" which is the Windows installed generic sound driver. Normally, when you install the proper sound driver, such as RealTek, the High Definition Audio Codec, driver is automatically deleted.

Please fill in the "My System Specs". It helps us to help you.

Also, please post a screenshot of the Device Manager, Sound section.

Hi,

I have been using for a while a Toshiba Satellite c650 laptop. It has been used only to listen to music and to check e-mail via Internet Explorer. Recently, after a short camping trip where rain was abundant, the screen stopped functioning. The computer was working, we could hear the music playing. After shutting it down, turning it back on would make the screen work for anything from a few seconds to a few minutes. The screen then remained pitch black, whatever we did. I finally had the idea to plug in my 27-inch external monitor.
The results weren't as good as I expected. The external screen works fine, but the resolution cannot be set higher than 1366x768, instead of the usual 1600x900 on the laptop. Also, when connected to my Alienware laptop, the external monitor can go up to 1980x1080.
As if this wasn't enough, when playing music, the speakers would suddenly let out a very loud buzzing noise for a few seconds. We have tried to pinpoint the cause, but it happens whenever it seems to want to.

Is there anything we can do about the screen? (without sending it to be repaired, of course) I guess there's a problem in the hardware, because the external screen works. There might also be a problem with the video card, because of the weird maximal resolution..

Please, any help or advice is gladly accepted.

Nazsha

A:Laptop screen not working, audio buzzing

The external monitor cannot go beyond 1366x768 because (probably) you're connecting it to a port that's used for projectors.
Question: If you shine a bright light into the laptop's monitor, can you see anything? (if yes, then it's just the light source that went pfffzt)

Without sending it to be repaired you'd have to repair it yourself. Which means using tools, taking measurements then sending them back and forth through a forum. It'll probably take weeks and it might cause more damage.

Whenever doing process intensive tasks (photo/video editing being one of them) I hear a buzzing sound. Example, when changing settings in photoshop with the arrow buttons I hear a buzz every time the button is pressed. Also when scrolling windows.
Has anyone had this issue? I still have the ridiculous crackling sound when watching videos fullscreen which dell seems to ignore, I've tried using an intel updater but it says the 9350 is not available for them to update.

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.

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
