My laptop making strange noise/beep sound and I can't find the issue

Q: My laptop making strange noise/beep sound and I can't find the issue

A few days ago, I made a thread about beeping noise from my laptop, but looks like it's not a beep sound because I went into my laptop BIOS and disabled the beep sound.
 
Now, my laptop is still doing the same noise. It can't be the beep sound because I disabled it. I tried to muted the volume, but it's still doing the noise/buzz/beep randomly.
 
I don't know where that sound come out. I checked drivers' update, they are all up to date..
 
What else to do?

My computer running windows xp 64bit has been freezing. When it freezes it plays the last half second of sound played over and over very quickly, sounds like a machine gun. It happens both when gaming and doing nothing. Usually it unfreezes after a few minutes, only to freeze again. After roughly 30-40 minutes of this, the freezing usually stops.

Sometimes it does not unfreeze, and I have to hardboot. Windows will freeze when booting several times, safemode freezes after loading SPTD.sys, even after hitting escape to cancel loading.

AVG free, Avast, Clamwin, and clamtk (scanning my windows partition from linux) all pick up no viruses.

This happens with both windows xp home, windows xp pro 32bit, and windows xp 64bit. Linux does not seem to have any problems.

I've tried updating all my drivers, fresh installs, everything I can think of.

Anyone have any ideas?

A:[SOLVED] Strange Freezing - Sound making machine gun noise

No, it isn't a virus. It could be (1) temperature or (2) voltage—among other things.

Do be sure to check your temperatures in the BIOS in any case, because you want to be sure you're okay there. If the temperature is 30? C or anything like that, you've ruled that out. It's in the BIOS under Health, and look at the CPU and the System temps.

If your voltage is, say, 0.1 too low for your needs, you could have trouble. Overclockers can often help "ordinary guys" tweak their voltage settings the way that is exactly right for your RAM.

Then there is the possibility that a drive is not doing things just right. It would not have to be the drive you are using. For example, a CD-RW that works just fine might nonetheless have an operational problem that upsets the system, especially if it were on the same cable as the hard drive. You might never to think of looking for a drive that isn't in use at the time. Therefore some people would try subtracting all the hardware you are not using, piece by piece, to see if it goes away.

There is also the question whether it happens in Safe Mode. If your drivers are okay, I would guess it DOES happen in Safe Mode. But because Safe Mode installs just what you really need, it can sometimes suggest a solution in a backwards-thinking kind of way.

Finally, you mention quite a few anti-virus/firewall programs there. You are running just ONE firewall and you are running just ONE anti-virus program, right? If you are running more than ... Read more

Hey Guys...

So my Packard Bell Easy Note MX37-S-200 has suddenly started making persistent " Crackling " and " Popping" noises from the moment i boot it. The noise is coming from the speakers and the sound is now distorted. I have very recently got it back from the repair shop after having my AC jack replaced... I would really like to rule everything out before i start pointing fingers at the repair guy

Things i have tried - Disabling sound driver - Noise was still there and laptop just installed it again.

Running avast scan through it - Scan picked up nothing.

Played with the sound setting - Nothing changed noise still there.

Plugged in PC speakers - Noise still coming from laptop but sound came out of the speakers fine.
Would really appreciate any help
Thank you

Madhumitha, I'm not very good with Laptops, but I suspect you have pressed a function key to turn on some feature, probably by mistake. Most likely your manual can explain it. You may try holding down the function key (Fn) and pressing X and see if that solves it.

Hey guys,

My HP Pavilion dv6 3132tx has been making a beep and click noise every now and then for quite a while now (4 months +).

The noise is a beep (lasting around 1/2 second) followed by a click (and sometimes it is a beep followed by another beep of a lower tone). It happens when I am logged into windows and there are no beep codes on startup, the speakers are muted too so it's not a background noise or anything. There also does not appear to be any pattern and the beeps occur randomly, whether it be me gaming or browsing the internet.

I have tried checking the hard drive for errors by using the bios hdd checking tool, chkdsk and hdtune. All of those said that the hard drive passed so I have no idea what the problem could be.

Thanks in advance!

It may be hardware errors unfolding. For safety in case it gets worse, 1st of all (if you haven't done so aleady), do some backup'ing by imaging your disk (or as a minimum copy all your personal\important files) to an external media.

OK.

I have a Dell Laptop and just twice heard a sound that resembled expelling compressed air from the back, sort of like when you squash a cardboard drinks carton. The sound both times was very brief ie less than a second, not something sustained.

The laptop is up on a stand, so there is no heat build up, either under or behind it. I put on a Youtube vid as that usually makes the fan/s spin up ... and they did so with no problem.

No other faults as far as I can tell, either with the display, sound, no slow downs or reboots of any kind.

- Any ideas what the sound could be ?

I just Googled but all similar issues were caused by heat / blocked air vents which is not the cause in my case.

Hello. My dell latitude D505 laptop was making a loud winding noise underneath(facing me) the left side closest to the screen. Underneath that location is a fan. Why it was making such a loud winding noise, It sounded similar to an old tape player rewinding a cassette. I don't know but I do know it's never done that before.

Does anyone know what this could be and is it safe to use my computer even though the winding noise stopped? It lasted for at least a few hours, then suddenly stopped.



Thank you.
Chassa
 

A:My Dell Latitude D505 laptop was making strange winding sound

Is it warm or hot in that location? It's either the HDD or CPU Fan?
If it's the CPU Fan that needs to be replaced.
If it's the HDD then backup your data or clone the HDD as the HDD is starting to go.
Normally if it's the HDD it will make clunking noises.

I've had this computer since March and I'm using the stock heat sink it came with. Recently I've noticed that sometimes programs will be unresponsive for 4-6 seconds and then it will go back to normal. The same thing can be said about the mouse, sometimes it doesn't even move. I took apart the side panel of my case and noticed that the CPU fan was making the noise. It sounds like a dial up modem, but a lot more silent. This noise can only be heard up close and eventually it goes away before starting to make the noise again. My CPU temps are normal, 31 on idle and usally 45-50 when I'm playing a game. The stock fan never stops spinning either. Maybe the motherboard has something to do with this? I haven't changed anything or added any new hardware since putting it together in March nor have I replaced the thermal paste because the temps were always low to begin with.

Hey guys, this is my first post here so if this is in the wrong place, then forgive me, I checked around and this seems like the best place for this kinda prob.

Ok the problem is that my fan on my graphics card (Radeon 9600XT) has started making a weird and very annoying buzzing/whirling sound.

It all started after I did my monthly clean up inside my system. Getting rid of all the grime and stuff and checking to see if everythings just all right.

Well i plugged everything back together and a strange whirling sound started coming from my system. It's hard to describe really, it's kinda intermitent. It comes on for 5/6 seconds then theres a pause, then it's on again for another 5/6 secs etc. It doesn't seem to be related to any sort of activity the computer is engaged in, ie it makes the same kinda noise when just sat there on desktop as it does when Im downloading stuff, browsing the net or playing games.

I took the back off my case to see what it might have been and found out it was my graphics card, because when i held my card the pitch of the buzzing would lower a bit, so I took the top of my fan off my g-card and cave it a good clean out because i thought maybe there was something stuck in the fan that was making the noise. The fan is now totally crap-free but it's still making the noise.

My PC runs Windows 7 x64 and is basically an Asus H97I+ M/b, I7-4790K CPU & GTX970 GPU. There are two SSDs for hard drives...

Whenever I am running MS Flight Simulator, I get a strange, high-pitched 'chirping' noise from what should be a silent PC, fans apart. After Googling I kind of decided it was coil whine from the GPU:

GeForce GTX 970 Coil Whine Concerns | PC Perspective

but having opened up the case and listened more closely (literally) the noise seems to be coming more from the CPU. If so, what could it be? Pretty sure it's not mechanical (i.e. fans).

Oddly, as I say, I don't get the noise other than when I run MS Flight Simulator (I don't use this particular PC for much else). I tried stress testing the CPU with Intel Burn and the GPU with this:

https://unigine.com/products/benchmarks/valley/

..also copied large files from one SSD to another. None of which caused any noise at all. It's only when running FS9 (haven't tried FSX). Makes no sense to me. Recording of the noise is here:

To confirm it was my harddrive I unplugged it, and turned the computer on. The noise was gone when I did so. So I have it back in and everything and it "seems" everything is running a lot slower. Things are locking up, ect.

I am new on here and still figuring out how to navigate the forums, so I apologize if I'm posting a question that has already been asked (also english is not my first language so bare with me haha). I can't find any article/forum that explains my problem so I am posting here hoping to finally finding out what is causing this sound and how to fix it.

The sound happens almost always when I access my second HDD in windows explorer. Sometimes it happens when my PC is working harder than usual (HD streaming for example) and sometimes (not so often) seemingly random or when I am not even using my PC. It is hard to explain but it is a quick high pitched spinning sound followed by what I can only explain as a clicking sound. It is very quick only about 2 seconds I would say. Previously while playing The Sims 4 the same sound happened right before the game always froze/crashed.

I only know a few things here and there about hardware components, just the basics... I have read somewhere about hard drives "spinning down". Does this mean the drive temporarily shuts down and starts back up when you access a file from it? Or what does it mean? Could this be what is the problem? Or is it something else? I don't want to take my PC in if it is a problem I can fix myself, I am pretty good at following instructions to troubleshoot. I have already run tests on both of my hard drives with a program that checks the health of your hard drive and both my disks are still in e... Read more

Hello this is my first time here and i hope i am posting in the right section. I checked the search option but couldnt find the same problem as mine.
So lets start i spent last night(about 12h) rendering images on my pc(which is less than 2 years old)
so after it was done evrything functioned nicely and i didn't notice any problems when i turned it off.
After around 3-4h i turned the PC on again and it started making some strange noice like crawling or whirling or something not sure how to describe it correctly. So i opened the PC and while it was all running and making the noise i used a screwdriver to block all of the fans for like a sec just to see if it is them (i read that from some other forum suggestion).
So anyway when i stoped the PSU fan the sound stoped and when i released it did not start immidiately. The sound does not start as soon as i start the PC it takes some time for it. Also the fan seems to slow down when it happens. Now i left it on like 10mins with the fan making the noise and slowing down and after like 5-10min the noise stoped and the fan started turning fast again. It has been several hours on since than and it is working normaly, i read that the problem could be dust/a wire out of place/a insect flying in etc. My concern is what i should do, is it the PSU failing or just the fan or maybe something else?

Hi all you experts!

A friend asked me to repair his laptop after his harddisk went down (totally dead), so I got a new WD harddisk and changed the old one with the new, installed Vista and it's all running fine, I just encountered one problem there's some sort of beeping sound from the laptop, but only when the power cable is plugged in and there's no running processes.

It's very strange, when i scroll the beeping sound stops, when I stop scrolling the beeping sound returns. First thought that it was the harddisk, but the sound comes from within the center of the laptop (keyboard, maybe RAM) but if it was the keyboard it would beep also on battery wouldn't it?

I have never heard of a similar problem and I don't know wether it did the same before, cause it couldn't boot.

Hello again......

I got a new mouse last week (logitech g700). I wanna put this in here because this issue has only occured since Friday. The mouse can be wired/wireless. I always use wireless...

The problem I have is
A) If I scroll to fast, or use the hyperscroll feature of the mouse, the laptop would send out beeps through my speakers or headset.. whatever I am using. I stop scrolling, the beeps stop coming. I start scrolling again, at any speed, the beep occurs again. To go along with this.. The cursor/laptop becomes VERY slow when the beeping happens... NOTE: This does not happen all the time... I shrugged it off until what happened next:
B)This only happened once (about 10minutes before i posted this) When I turned my laptop on and right after everything was booted, I tried to move/scroll my mouse, and the beeps happened. This time, my computer was lagging all the time (i couldn't even bring up taskmgr to see anything)... I restarted my laptop and now everything is working good...

At this point I am uncertain if its the mouse or other hardware or a windows 7 thing.

Thanks for the help.

And aside from the fan noises, there are also those little ticking noises (I'm sorry for the horrible descriptions. I'm not much of a computer person), you know, like you can tell the laptop is um, processing information or something. And the fan goes off about every 20-30 seconds. Then it stops. Then starts up again. Please help me!

Hey guys,im having trouble with my laptop. Every time I turn on my laptop, it makes an annoying vibrating sound. I thought it would be the fan being clogged up or something so I have opened it up and clean the inside. The result remains the same. I hear it around the fan since I'm pretty sure it's the only noisey part of the computer. I thought you guys might help me out, I might be doing something wrong.thanks

Hi people,

My problem is,

A couple of weeks ago everything was fine, when suddenly my computer just stopped working,
Specificaly, at start when i tried booting, the power supply made a little flash and the power on the house went down. also, the on-off button on the power supply refused to go to off, it just pushes itself back.
After opening the case and doing a little clean up , i managed to start the computer. The thing is, there was no beep, and the booting failed again and again, the screen remained black. Also there is a strange ''tick-tock'' constant sound coming from the machine, i think it comes from the power-reboot button area.

Any Ideas? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
 

A:Solved: No beep, No boot. Strange tick tock sound.

XP Professional Windows laptop is driving me nuts. I have just noticed today that I keep getting a chirping noise, and I don't know what it is.

I went into Device manager and seen that I had an alert which I'm not sure if it has anything to do with it or not but this is what it says:

I am not sure what it is, and I have even tried doing a search which got me no where which is why I'm here asking for help. I am not even sure if the chirping is even tied into this alert or not.

The chirping thing is a little annoying, lol. Ha

But any help with this would be highly appreciated.

My laptop computer (Dell Inspiron 1525) has been making a weird ticka-ticka-ticka noise since last night, only when I load a website that's heavy in photos or video (and not every time.) The noise sounds similar to an mp3 file of hard drive spindle motor failure I found through Google, but it doesn't have that background whine and seems to coincide with the fan speeding up. It also doesn't sound like it's coming from the hard drive (located at the lower left side in my laptop, I believe), but the middle-to-upper left side.

Can someone help me identify what's likely to be wrong? The computer is several years old, so I'm not surprised if something's breaking down, but I sure hope it's repairable.

Hi,
My laptop has started making an annoying noise, I'm not sure if it's the fan (which I cleaned yesterday with compressed air) or if it's my hard drive. I would like to get my log checked as a precaution. I've already run Mcafee, Lavasoft and spybot, maybe there is something else I am missing. Thanks.
