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.

A: my headphones make a buzzing sound when plugged in

really man?

there are so many factors involved.

it could be the power plug you have plugged into.. the wall outlet/socket.. that causes buzzing..

plug the headphones into other sources and if you notice buzzing.. cdplayer/iphone/ipod..

then when did this start? is it all headphones? have you tried different headphones?

there isn't much to do inside windows but tweak sound settings.. and make sure your sound drivers are the latest... if you have a Realtek audio card etc.. which of course you like many others don't tell us what you have..

It's most likely something power wise causing buzzing.. do you live in an old house?

or the components inside your computer are interfering... from bluetooth to the fan running inside the computer..

I'm guessing power but How to do anything with power except set grounding and voltage levels? which you definitely shouldn't do with your computer..

and then I would NOT particularly tweak these settings but.. things like

Hello everyone! Today I came here for help with my old HP Pavillion DV6 laptop. When I plug my headphones into either one of the two jacks, I can hear a buzzing sound from the headphones. I know it is not the headphones, because it only happens when they are plugged into this computer. It is not because of the device being plugged into the wall either, although unplugging it makes the buzz deeper in pitch. Is this a driver issue, or is it just a bug in the hardware that I have to live with? (It's bearly audible when music is being played). Any suggestions are appriciated!

Hey!

I just bought a pair of new headphones, SteelPad 5H Headset

https://www.steelpad.com/shop/default.asp?main=products (Not the USB version)

The audio is perfect, but the problem is i hear this very loud, constant, buzzing sound everytime i turn the microphone on.

I have no idea what the problem is Cant really explain it.

(For thoose who know what Ventrilo is..)
I went into Setup in Ventrilo, and used the Monitor function. When i keep the microphone volume on "Low" (Its got a controller on the cord to controll the audio) i get a constant buzz of 30-50 units. When i keep it at "High" i get a constant buzz of 250-270 units.

It's unbearable :/ I was hoping to throw my old table microphone away when i bought this headset, but its unusable :/

There arent any drivers with theese headphones, so it must be something else.
I didnt get this buzz with my last headphone/microphone.

Does anybody might know what the problem is?

Thanks in advance!

I'm having some trouble with my laptop's sound. Every few minutes, it sounds like the audio skips and buzzes for less than a second. It sounds like interference or something. I was certain it was a fault with the speakers, but the problem exists when listening on headphones and even on the TV connected through HDMI. Also, it happens in Windows Media Player, Adobe Flash, or anything that has audio. Is there a way to fix this? Thanks.

Hi everyone,

I have an interesting problem: On my laptop (Lenovo Y510p) I can hear a buzzing/whistling/noise sound while my headphones are plugged in. The problem goes away when I mute my sound, but this buzzing can be heard while booting as well.

This led me to believe that my problem is simply a hardware issue, but I have a dual-boot setup with Ubuntu Linux on another partition where the sound works perfectly (i.e. no buzzing/whistling sound), which is interesting because it is using the exact same hardware.

I've tried: Reinstalling the audio driver and using different headphones. Neither gets rid of the problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! I'd be happy to provide more information.

A:Noise/Buzzing Heard in Headphones when Sound Unmuted

Do you have the correct sound driver installed? If you only have the "High Definition Audio Codec" installed, that is only the generic Windows installed sound driver and not the correct one. Although the driver is not an issue when booting.

Hey

I bought a 2230s HP laptop less than a month ago. I noticed the phono-stick was really, really tight. But my headphones could still go in.
But a few days ago, when I had had my headphones plugged in, my speaker didn't work after that. Or there came no sound
I restarted my computer and checked configurations and stuff, but couldn't find anything wrong. I plugged my headphones back in and they could still play and when I took them out again everything worked perfect again.

Yesterday it happened again, but now it didn't work to replug my headphones. The headphones plays, but my speaker don't.
I don't know if it is a hardware problem or it is windows, that doesn't register, that I pulled out my headphones :S
And I can't find anywhere where I can see output in the sound-configurations.

Any idea?

A:No sound after headphones plugged in

Welcome to Seven Forums Maeggoel. The headphone jack has a "switch" in it that shuts off the speakers when you plug in the headphones. It's usually just a contact the headphone jack contacts. Sounds like you might have a bad headphone jack. Try working the jack in and out and see if the speakers give intermittent sound, or come back. A Guy

Then if I want to use my microphone again, I have to restart my PC multiple times because when I set up my mic, I just hear a snowstorm-like sound when I hear what the mic sounds like.

I have tried EVERY possible solution I can find; I have updated the sound drivers, I have uninstalled the drivers and had them reinstall on their own after restarting the PC, and I have tried using a different set of earbuds to see if it would change.

THE PROBLEM IS ONLY WHEN I HAVE ANY TYPE OF HEADPHONES IN

When I am watching a video or streaming something online there are poping noises coming from the head phones.  As far as I can tell it doesn't happen when I am not using headphones.  Also I noticed it happens when I a doing something else on the computer so if I am streaming something and go to open another window a pop will happen when I do so.  Reading the forums I am hearing it might be the drivers.  In the device manager under sound video and game controllers there are two items listed Conexant ISST Audio and Intel (R) Display Driver.  My guess is I am using the Conexant one and have upgraded that driver but it didn't fix the prolbem.  Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks Brian

A:Sound & Mic Issues When Headphones are plugged in

Hey,
Plug your headphones in.
Right click on the speaker symbol in the system tray located at the bottom right of your monitor.
Select "Playback devices"
Find your device - it will most likely be the "default" one with the green tick.
Right Click it and select properties.
Click the Advanced tab
Uncheck both of the "Exclusive Mode" Options and click apply.

Do the same for the Mic under "Recording" tab in the sound properties window.

See if that solves your issue.

The title pretty much says it all. I realize there are other threads out there similar to this, but their solutions either didn't work for me, or the problem wasn't quite the same. My issue is as follows: When I plug my headphones into my laptop (hp dv7t 6c000 quad) audio plays through both the speaker and the headphones, which I don't want. Also, when I check the volume, there are 2 sliders, one for the speakers and one for the headphones. When I check the mixers, almost all programs are under the normal speaker mixer (and they play through the normal speakers), but some (steam being one of them) show up under the headphones mixer. When I move the slider to a new sound volume for the headphones, it makes the little ding sound (through the headphones) and I can hear the test. Disabling my default speakers didn't work, and neither did setting the headphones as default. I uninstalled and reinstalled my drivers. I'm totally at a loss of what to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Sound Plays Through Speakers When Headphones Plugged In

Some systems have an Audio Control Panel that allows the option of having the speakers on when you plug in headphones, or to not have speakers on. Check the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound to see if you have this and the option.

For example, I have RealTek audio and in my Realtek HD Audio Manager, I have the option for how I want the headphone jack to operate.

You say you uninstalled and reinstalled the audio drivers, but did you use the HP supplied driver? If not, the HP supplied sound driver is the preferred driver. Non-Vendor drivers in many cases may not work or work correctly.

I'm having a really baffling problem with my laptop resulting in no sound whatsoever. The sound icon shows a red 'x', and in my audio playback devices in the Sound Manager - none appear except a TV I connect by HDMI (my on-board microphone has also gone AWOL). I downloaded new drivers to no avail, performed a system restore, ditto, and the Acer support team are advising resetting the machine to factory settings, which I am loathe to do if I'm unconvinced it would work.

(The speakers are internal, so I've not simply forgotten to plug them in).

I've noticed a few similar problems on this page, does anyone have any solutions? It might be a hardware problem as an attempt to plug in headphones didn't help (although the headphones themselves made a 'feedback noise as they normally do when plugged in to a silent device') .

Any ideas?

Hey all, I'm new here, very frustrated, and hoping I can get this solved.

My computer is a HP dv7-2185DX in total stock form.

I have no sound coming from my speakers. I don't know of any specific trigger. A friend ejected my iPod and walked off with it, but that's the only action I can think of done on the computer for a while.

Looking in the IDT Audio panel it says the following:

With no headphones in - it shows that I have a pair plugged in my middle jack.
With headphones on the left (mic) jack - it shows a mic plugged in and nothing else
With headphones in the middle - it shows both headphone jacks as filled (the one on the right shows up as filled too)
With headphones on the right - it shows both headphone jacks as filled (the one on the right shows up as filled too)

EDIT: More symptoms:

Now it shows the wrong front panel in the IDT Audio screen. It shows as 2-jack layout with mic (L) / headphone (R)

When I plug in phones in my PC into the jacks on the front, it shows as follows....

R side headphone - shows in screen as the right jack
Middle headphone - shows in screen as the right jack
L Mic - shows in screen as the left side mic

** When my phones are plugged in the Mic jack sound is produced under both situations. **

Unless I have speakers or headphones plugged in, my computer gives me the red "X" over my sound icon in my system tray, and anything that involves sound won't work. This is annoying because I don't always want to listen to sound at work, but I still need to be able to play things that have sound while I listen to music from another source.

I guess I could just find a wire to plug into the headphone jack (yup, that works) but that seems silly. What gives? I've never had this problem on any other computer.

A:Computer thinks it has no sound card unless headphones plugged in

That's normal behavior from what I've seen. If not output devices are detected, the sound is disabled. I'm not sure of the part you are stuck on, but if there's no output device connected, then you obviously aren't going to hear any sounds at all. Your computer likely doesn't have an internal speaker, either. If you want to hear sounds, plug in speakers or another output device.

While playing some games like Left 4 Dead 2, Fallout New Vegas and Age of Empires III Asian Dynasties, the computer crashes and I have to press and hold the power button for it to turn off. It happens frequently in AoE III Asian Dynasties and never happens in Team Fortress 2 for example.

The screen goes black and the monitor light starts blinking, and the speakers make a really annoying loud buzzing sound.

I've had BSODs before but not since the last format.

I found this thread using Google, looks similar.

A:Monitor goes black and speakers make loud buzzing sound

Your symptoms reek of hardware failure. My initial suspicion is your video card. Though let's run through some testing.

First thing's first: some initial troubleshooting. Check inside your PC for any dust or slow/stopped fans. Ensure that proper airflow is taking place (cold outside air in, hot inside air out). While you're inside, go ahead and re-seat your video card, as well as your memory sticks, and reconnect your drives' power and data cables (both drive and motherboard ends). Check things after all of this, and see if the issue has been resolved or has been very noticeably reduced. If not resolved, continue onward.

Before the testing, we'll want a couple HWinfo logs from ya. Set it to Sensors only at startup, then have it log two instances: one for idle, and one for high load (gaming, etc.). Make sure each log records a decent amount of time (~15 minutes). So we can get some good solid averages and discover trends going on.

Once that's done, on to the hardware diagnostic tests:

GPU: MemtestG80/CL - If your video card supports either of the tests, run twice.
RAM: Memtest86+ - Run 7+ passes.
CPU: Prime95 - Torture Test, Large FFTs, 9+ hours.
Disk: Seatools - All basic tests. No Fix all or advanced ones.

Note that these tests (besides MemtestG80/CL) are available on the UBCD. It's also preferable you run them on there as it offers a light, reliable environment to run them on. Note that Prime95 is called Mersenne Prime Test in the UB... Read more

It's as if it doesn't detect the headphones. It says my Realtek audio driver is up-to-date. When I go to manage audio devices, there's only one device listed called "Speakers / Headphones", so I don't know if when I plug my headphones in it's supposed to detect it separately. I've tried multiple headphones, all of which work with other devices. Also, there are two drivers listed under "sound, video, and game controllers". One is Realtek Audio and the other is Intel(R) Display Audio. Should I reinstall them both?

Hi! I'm not very good with computers so I need some help with this.
When I plug in my head phones my computer does not register them and keeps playing music on the main speakers, I have checked the Sound in the controlpanel but only the main speakers are listed there.

I have an Acer Aspire computer with Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit.

Please help since I am clueless with this!

A:Computer plays sound on main speakers while headphones are plugged in?

Hello Affio and welcome to the forums!

Have you tried unplugging the speakers and plugging the headphones into the jack the speakers were in? See if it recognises them then.

Sony Vaio laptop (DxDiag attached, hoping that gives necessary info on hardware and software)

Fairly new laptop, has been in for repairs TWICE due to bluescreens. The SSD and ram has been replaced.

This time the error occurs when watching videos/playing games (it does tend to happen at random, but when gaming it doesnt need more than 20-30 mins before crashing)

The error is the same every time: The screen goes black (but is still lit), while the speakers makes a constant buzzing sound that doesnt stop until I turn off the computer by holding the power button.

I have been without the computer for over 9 weeks for repairs, and this time I want to hear with you guys if there is anything that can be done to avoid that.

Thanks in advance. Please inform me what I need to do in order to help you guys help me!

A:Unknown crash (Screen goes black, speakers make buzzing sound)

DxDiag won't provide us anything on what we need to analyze this crash. You'll want to run a jcgriff report as instructed here.

I want to note that the reason why they replaced the SSD and RAM is because those are the only parts they're willing to replace. If this thing is new as you say, then my initial diagnosis is that we got a mobo or graphics issue (most likely mobo). Either case means replacing the whole laptop.

Send us the generated report, and we should be able to work from there.

So I bought these headphones a couple of months ago and there has always been a static noise in them. It's not as easy to hear when I have a game going on in the backround or music, but you can SLIGHTLY still hear it. When no other sound is coming out, it is clear as day.

They are Skullcandy SLAYR headphones, bought them for around $80 bucks. I know that Skullcandy has a deal where you can send them back whenever you want if they break or something so I might just try that if I can't fix the problem beforehand.

I've tried plugging them into different USB ports on my computer and it still makes a static sound. I have also tried jiggling it around while it was plugged in but the static noise remained.

Could it be a conflict with sound drivers? I had old headphones from steelseries which I assume installed some driver on my computer and now I switched over towards the Skullcandy ones which installed a new driver on my computer as well when I initially plugged them in.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!
 

A:Headphones make static sound

Test them on a different computer. That will determine if you have a headphone or PC issue.

I somehow experience a problem that my heaphones (small ones), which work properly on my mobile, produce sound when connected to laptop only from the right headphone. The left one isn't reacting to tests as well.

A:How to make both headphones produce sound?

First obvious question, does both speakers in the PC work OK?

Can you try a different headphone, to verify it is a problem with the PC?

So this problem seemed to come out of nowhere, I have no idea why it started. Basically, when I use my internet, eg: opening link, loading video or downloading randomly my speakers make a grinding noise and until the noise stops (can be 1-10 seconds) my internet drops (the internet icon on the bottom right shows it is still connected but nothing loads until the noise stops. Even then, the noise can drop in and out like 10 times in a minute and is constantly messing up the internet.

If someone could help, it would be much appreciated, my speakers are Logitech (doubt that makes much difference as I doubt the problem is linked to them and my LAN card is some Ralink thing, nothing special.

Here is a low volume recording of the noise, turn up your speakers to hear it well.

Hi, whenever I change the manual sound button on my speakers or headphones it makes a loud staticcy noise. Any way to stop this? Neither of them are very old at all.
 

A:Speakers and Headphones make staticcy noise when sound is changed

Sounds like a bad ground to me, check the connections and the solder joints on the connectors for the cable etc. Also try another set of headphones.

The problem still exists even after Dell repaired the laptop. It took two weeks to get the repaired laptop back from Dell.

The problem is:
When I plug or unplug the charger while playing music/video on laptop, the laptop is freezing with buzzing sound for 1-2 seconds when the laptop begins charging. Even after Dell repaired the laptop, the problem still exists.
Tried installing the updated drivers, the laptop works fine only for a short period and then after some time the same freezing with buzzing sound problem comes back.
Also, if the laptop is restarted it works fine for a while and then the same freezing with buzzing sound problem comes back.

Not satisfied with the Dell and Dell repair services.
Need help with this problem.

Recently bought a new headset, Gioteck Ex-05 to be exact. Everything looks fine considering the product and all, but when I FIRST plugged it in it automatically did it's routine with installing the headset driver. Afterwards, my speaker icon in my tray got an X.

Solutions that I've tried but ended up failing:

Reinstalling Headset Driver
Restarting my computer
Reinstalling my Realtek Codec
Reinstalling my NVIDIA High Definition Audio Codec
System Restoring my computer
It's literally just the headset when I plug it in, my earphones work perfect. I have yet to use another headset, this is my first one for this computer.
 

A:Bought a new headset, plugged it in, no speakers or headphones plugged in?

What OS is it? Have you tried going into the control panel>sound & make sure MUTE is not checked?

I have a problem with my headphones, one of my headphones started buzzing. It doesn't buzz if there is no sound and if there is it just overlaps with the sound. I thought the headphone jammed or something but today I put in another set of headphones and they had the same problem. So I guess its a software issue. What do you recommend I should do ?
Uninstall my sound drivers and install them again ?
 

A:Headphones buzzing

Maybe your PC's produce a lot of electrical interference and this could be the cause?

Hi! Today my new MDR EX110APB SONY arrived and when I plugged them in my phone or laptop there is a sort of "static noise". Not that much annoying when playing music on smartphone but when connected to the laptop it gets worse. Some of the earplugs I had did the same but only with connection the the laptop. The weirdest thing is that when I mute the youtube video or the movie, the noice stops. So it only occurs when I play something. Btw: Tried connecting them to a friends phone and its the same. Could this be a possible problem? I have the sound set to the lowest amount. Laptop is lenovo idea pad 700. Phone xiaomi redmi 3S. Thanks for help

Hey Tech People:

New to the boards, and I plan on becoming a regular, so let's start off with this question, since I can't figure out what the heck is wrong. Basically, I just installed a new mobo (Asus K8N-E Deluxe), new CPU (Athlon 64 3400+), and new graphics card (Geforce 6800 GT). Suffice, pretty good upgrades and everything is working pretty well. However, one thing: my headphones, when plugged into my Logitech 5.1 speaker setup (the separate volume control thing), give me a nice buzz sound, sort of like feedback. It fades as I move away from my computer, and gets louder when I touch the mouse and move near more electronic equipment. I tried plugging the speakers into different outlets and things like that, but nothing. The only way to get the buzz to stop is to actually turn off the speakers from the woofer. Just turning them off at the control knob does nothing. I am lost. The speakers work fine when the headphones are not installed, and the headphones work in other things, such as my TV/Xbox pairing. No buzz there. Any advice? Is my mobo grounded properly, and if not, how do I fix?

Thanks!
 

A:Headphones Buzzing

Glad to hear you want to stick around.
Is that "seperate volume control knob" on the sub woofer or an expansion slot on the Case?

Maybe take a close look at the cable of the Microphone, Buzzing is more of a grounding issue(loose/reversed wire)make sure there is no loosness at the terminals and up at the earphone end,or cuts in the wire.
Confirm all sound connections are correct and seated well especially inside the case to Mb connections.
The only way to confirm for motherboard grounding is to strip everything (except maybe the CPU) and put thin plastic washers under and over the mounting blocks and screws(pain in the rump job) .You might be able to see visably if something is touching improperly or out of alignment ,but that is iffy.
Good luck.

I got a new pair of headphones today and after awhile I noticed a quiet buzzing noise when I move my mouse around or type on the keyboard, soon I heard the noise without any user input until I restarted my PC then it was just buzzing when using my mouse and keyboard.

I tested several headphones and heard no noise however these new ones are better than my old ones, I've also tested them on my brother's PC and heard no buzzing.

I'm using my onboard VIA HD Audio driver(up to date). I still hear the noise even if I disable all audio devices.

Motherboard is a Gigabyte M4A785TD-V EVO. Is this what's to blame?
Rig, although I can't help but think most of this wont help with this.
OS: Windows 7 64
Mobo: Gigabyte M4A785TD-V EVO
GPU: Radeon HD 5850
CPU: Phenom 2 x4 925
No sound card
Ram 6GB
PSU: Corsair TX 650W V2

EDIT:
No wireless mouse/keyboard

A:Buzzing noise with new headphones.

Plug the headphone into the rear GREEN speaker jack and see if you still get the noise. If its OK there, there is something wrong either with the front panel assembly in the case or possibly the wiring or how its routed to the HD Audio connection on the motherboard.
