High + Low pitched sound from headset

Q: High + Low pitched sound from headset

Hello, this issue has been affecting me for the past few months. Every time that I think I fix it, it will eventually come back.

What it is exactly is; I can be doing anything, playing a game, watching a movie, listening to music, or browsing the web. Then all of a suddenly, the sound will mess up, and go from a high pitch to low pitch, then back to high.

It's not OS related, it happened to me while using windows xp pro 32bit, then xp pro 64bit. Now it started happening again the other day, and I'm currently using Windows 7 32bit - Build 7100.

PC Specs:

CPU: Intel® Core™2 Quad CPU Q6700 @ 2.66GHz (4 CPUs), ~2.7GHz
Motherboard: Asus P5N-D
Ram: 4GB
Video Card: Nvidia GeForce 9800 GT
Sound: Using Creative Fatal1ty USB Headset

When I was using XP, I could fix it by closing out all running programs, but it would eventually come back.

I've been using windows 7 for the past few weeks. It only started happening a few days ago, after I installed some Logitech G15 keyboard drivers/software. After it happened, I removed what I installed, but yet it just happened to me again a few moments ago. Was watching TV, came back to the PC, put on headphones and hit play on winamp. Next thing I knew I was listening to Alvin and the Chipmunks.

Preferred Solution: High + Low pitched sound from headset

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: High + Low pitched sound from headset

Figured out a fix to make it stop, but still trying to find out the source of it.

Fix was to go into "Speakers Properties / Advance", and change the default format of 16 bit, 44100 Hz (CD Quality) to another, then change it back.

Hello,

If anybody can shed some insight, it would be most welcomed. I've encountered a few things in my computer life but this one well... please read.

My system first off...
P4 3.0GHz, 865PE, P5P800, 400W Power Supply, some mid size copper fan sitting on cpu, ATI x800 AIW, Bluetooth keyboard/mouse...
My cpu used to cook at high temperatures, that's prescott for you.

Went to the store, got a case fan, compressed air, and a new hd.

Cleaned it up, mounted fan and installed hd. Didn't really notice it at first, but then started to hear this high pitched sound. Rebooted, same thing..
Finally can't take it anymore, opened the case, and it seems to be eminating from near the cpu. It usually happens when it's taxed but the kicker is...
it always happens when i move the mouse. It sounds like crickets almost.

Anybody have any ideas? I cannot see it being the new hard drive, it is not in use yet. (original and new are SATA if it's relevant).

Thanks in advance,
Richard
 

A:High pitched sound

Thats an odd one, I would say it was the HSF (heat sink fan) for your CPU but since it happens when you move your mouse, it must be either the mouse or the CPU itself... Try using a different type of mouse (ie PS2 or USB). If this doesnt solve the problem, check to see if everything is plugged in properly (actually you should do that before mouse)... And if that doesnt work, see if you can swap your CPU over with another one to see if this is the problem.

Regards,

Hello everybody,

I have been having a huge problem this last month with my computer, which I hope someone will be able to help me with.

The problem:
A high pitch ?squeak? sound is coming from ?inside? my PC. It appears to be coming from my graphics card or somewhere above on the motherboard. I am not a hardware geek at all, so in all honestly I really do not know. I am almost sure it is NOT coming from my fans or my PSU, though it does sound like a voltage problem.

Here is a VIDEO I filmed of my PC making the annoying sound:


The facts:
The noises are random ? and not related to anything. They will appear when I?m doing nothing, and they will appear when I?m doing loads of stuff.
The noises last between ~1-7 seconds
The noises started occurring AFTER I installed my new SSD: http://ocz.com/consumer/vertex-3-sata-3-ssd - I had never heard them before. I cannot RMA it, unfortunately. After installing my new SSD, I formatted my PC and installed Windows and that drive. Note: I am almost 100 % sure that the sounds are not coming from the SSD or HDD.
NO sounds during startup or in BIOS
People can hear the sound through Skype, EVEN WHEN MY MIC IS MUTED (!!) I find this very odd, and I hope it might be something to help locate the problem.
Some days there are sounds all the time, but I have tried going 5+ hours without sounds.

What I have tried already:
I have tried unplugging my secondary HDD.
I have tried disabling EIST... Read more

A:High-pitched sound from PC

It maybe somewhat related to the noises mentioned in this thread.

My dad was the last one to use the computer and now he's gone out so I don't know if this problem was there when he was on it, although he didn't say anything to me.

But now that I'm on it, I've noticed the sound output sounds different. When I loaded Windows, the traditional Windows login tune played...but it was all high. It's not the volume settings, it's actually a higher sound, and this is actually affecting every single piece of sound coming out of the speakers on the monitor.

I tried playing a song and the guy's voice is all messed up - high-pitched because of this.

I don't know why it's done this or how to solve it. If anyone can help I would be very happy! Thank you in advance!

Hey, I am wondering if any of you can help me. Originally, I had a problem with my Nvidia GTS 250 graphics card, the cooling fan came loose and with me still persistently using it then after the fan fell completely off (stupid me I know). To prevent any more damage, I decided to unclip the mains socket from the graphics card (the 6-pin internal clip) so that my computer would automatically boot up with the on-board graphics that my motherboard (Gigabyte S-Series GA-G31M-ES2L) provided. The only problem I have got is that every time I switch the computer on there is a very high pitched, rather loud ringing sound. It's a brand new motherboard so I can't see how anything has broke on that. I haven't as yet changed any of the settings in the BIOS nor have I taken the graphics card completely out (it's still in the express slot of the motherboard) if that can help with the solution to my problem. Thanks for any help and if there is any threads relating to this I would be grateful if you could send me in the right direction. Thanks again,

The sound doesn't come out of the speakers, but out of the tower. I don't get the sound when I'm running anything else. I have found other posts about a similar sound, but the circumstances are quite different.

Hi RunOrDie,

Does noise stops when you disconnect the both mouse and keyboard. If possible then directly connect them to the system without using the USB extender and let us know if the noise occurs.

Also, if it is whirring noise then it could be from fan and you should check for vents to clear any dirt blocking the fan.

Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.

A:Annoying high pitched sound coming from my pc?

This sort of high pitched noise is usually a vibrating coil. Unfortunately coils (aka inductors) are common components on motherboards, graphics cards and PSUs.

Are you 100% sure it's coming from the PSU ? If so there's not much you can do except try to ignore it or get another PSU.

It could also be a worn fan bearing. Try to locate it exactly.

Hi there,

I just installed a new motherboard today, with a new graphics card. Everything seemed absolutely fine until I noticed a very high-pitched sound coming from the tower itself. I can hear it better when I go to the back of the PC and listen up close. It seems like it's not coming from the PSU (It can't be as I've swapped another one in and it still makes the sound) but from the motherboard itself. When I unplug the LAN cable from the back of the PC, the sound decreases in pitch. When I turn off the computer, the sound stops. As soon as I power back on, the sound starts again.

I can live with the sound, it's not too audible over the fans, but I just want to know if it means my motherboard is imminently going to fail.

Thanks in advance!

Oh, and the motherboard is this: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/131187

On the system startup, my speakers suddenly produced a high pitched beeping noise. I've tried using a different set of speakers, but the result was the same. I'm not sure what exactly is wrong, but I had recently installed a more updated video driver and a wireless keyboard/mouse.
I've tried uninstalling both the video driver and the wireless set (switching back to the old keyboard and mouse), but there was still the beeping noise.
Surprisingly, when I mute the master volume the beeping noise stops. Also, the noise applies only to the input speaker (the speaker which has the cable connecting to the computer) and not the other one. I am able to listen to music using the other speaker, but the volume is drastically lowered.
My guess was that there was something interfering (such as the wireless mouse and keyboard) with the sound card(?), but since I have uninstalled them (now using again because it is obviously not the problem) and there were no changes, I have no idea what could possibly be wrong.

Is there a solution to this problem? Help will be gladly appreciated.

The laptop in this case is a Acer Aspire 5050 (bought at Walmart about 3-4 years ago).

I turn the volume up and when i get close to about half way on the volume bar, i start hearing this high pitched whistle-like sound which gets louder the more you turn it up. The sound is continuous so I am not able to turn up the volume up higher than 50% or so which is not loud enough.

So what is the problem here and how can I fix this? Please Help...

A:Getting a high pitched sound when i Turn Up the volume?

The whistle is either heterodyne noise or your picking up sound from a microphone type source.

Do you have a microphone plugged in? If so try tapping on it and see if the tapping comes across the speakers.

Try taping the unit, do you hear the results through the speakers?

You may be picking up cross-talk through a poorly filtered circuit, this may be caused by poor circuit design.

Try going to your audio properties and adjusting the line-in volume to see if this noise changes in pitch.

Make sure you do not have any wires or devices close by that are connected to or in the direct location, that can be causing the white-noise issue.

Broadcast Radio stations or continuous carrier devices can cause this issue to happen, it is RF interference.

You could have the device near a televison or other device with is emitting RF interference.

Make sure the electrical wiring in the house is polorized and grounded properly.

Kind regards.

Never mind, I found a simple thread on another forum and one of the replies sugested it was from improper refresh rate. And that was exactly it.

A:High-pitched sound from system(almost inaudible)

Turn off or unplug your speakers first. All sorts of spurious responses to whatever is going on can cause odd sounds from sound system. Then use a piece of 1 inch rubber hose or tubing to listen (as in a stethoscope) for noise from the power supply fan, or cpu fan. Check also the video graphics card if it has one.
Take a can of difluoroethane gas (dust off, or similar) and clean the cpu heat sink and fan of dust and hair.
Look over your wires inside the case to be sure none are hanging loose and intermittently touching the inside wall of the case.
Look for sound or video changes from some of your installed software, and particularly with games.

Hi,

My PC

*2.93 GHz celeron
*Intel PERLX mobo
*WinXP Pro
*Nvidia 6200 GPU
*Usually 3 HDDs (only 2 work)
*Used as media center PC run by SageTV

I have had this setup (3 HDDs) for 1+ years with no issue. Then one day I went to the PC and it was frozen with a high pitched sound coming from the audio - the last image was still on the screen and there were no error codes - no keyboard response at all. I had a set up of IDE1=boot HDD and CD drive, IDE2=2 storage HDDs.

so, i removed one of the storage HDDs, and it became stable again. So to troubleshoot, I put in a new IDE cable on IDE2, added the drive, but got the freezing again. Replaced 500W PSU with another 500W PSU - still freezes. Got a SATA HDD, and left the one drive on IDE2 (Ithought for sure this would fix it) - but again it freezes (BTW, I confirmed all storage HDDs are fine on another computer).

No other hardware or software changes were made. Why would it work fine with the 2 drives (1 storage) and not with 3 drives (2 storage, either PATA or SATA)? Any ideas?

My sound jack at the back of my computer doesnt work at all. My jack in the front of the computer changes all the sound that comes from the speakers and makes it very high pitched.

Please help me fix if not both jacks, then just one. I really need the sound.

Thanks
 

A:Sound coming from speakers is very high pitched

The computer specs in your profile only show a laptop computer. I have never seen a laptop with audio jacks front and back. Can you please clarify?

Ok, so around Christmas of 2015 i had my graphics card die on me and in a mixture of me not understanding that it was the graphics card that was dying and being slightly frustrated i shut my computer down by pulling the plug. This resulted in an almost useless PC as i guess i interrupted something important. I spent countless hours reviving the computer and finally saved it by rebooting the BIOS through a USB-flash drive. However i've had a tiny but annoying problem since then. All sound i record or input (skype, discord and other chatting sites) is now high pitched and the overall recording sound is generally bad. How did this happen? Was there something wrong with the BIOS is loaded? Can i have damaged the internal sound card in the motherboard while tinkering in the machine, might there be anything wrong with my drivers or is it some other issue?

I should say i have a stationary PC with Windows 10 and the BIOS version i now run is: American Megatrends Inc. 1203, 24.05.2012. I am also terrified to go back into the BIOS in case i ruin the PC again so i hope there is an easier solution. Thank you in advance to every helping hand!
 

A:High pitched sound on all sound i input?

Wow... quiet a story there.
Have you tried removing the dead graphics card and if you happen to have a sound card, try removing it and re installing it ? That's what I would do first as its a result of brute force damage...lol

Hi, i just bought some new logitech x-240 speakers and The trouble is, the sound pitch is too high. we've just connected to the Internet and even live radio sounds as though it's being spoken by Pinky and Perky (famous in the UK as two talking puppet pigs who delighted generations of children by speaking in speeded-up voices)if i go on youtube and put on a song, the sound of the musik is fine but then when the singer/artist starts singing, ther voice is squeky and if they have a high pitched voice already then i cant hear them at all Does anyone know what the problem is, and whether it can be fixed? Many thanks. I'm an IT Trainer and know how to teach people MS Office etc., but I know nothing about the elves and goblins who live in that box . some one please help meee!!

Video recorded with the odd sound. you may need head phones and a lot of volume to hear it clearly. The dominant sound is just the GPU fan spooling up.

Strange sound from my GPU during ATi tool run. - YouTube

I know its something electrical but other than that I have no idea. It doesn't seem to hurt anything but it is annoying. Its also exclusive to ATi tool and [email protected] Games and graphic benchmarks don't produce the sound.

A:PC making an odd high pitched sound during ATi tool test.

To me it sounds like a bad fan bearing.
I would open up the case and run the test again to make the sound start again, then go to the case and listen around the case for the source of the sound.

This notebook (less than 3hours out of the box) emits a very faint but annoying high-pitched noise.

A google search suggests this is not uncommon in Toshiba's notebook range but I've not found any 'fixes'.

Any ideas? Thanks for any help.

A:Satellite Pro S - High-pitched sound from left of touchpad

Hi!

What Satellite notebook you have exactly?

It?s not easy to say what the reason is for this but sometimes that sounds are caused from the HDD. So maybe you should check the HDD using Drive Fitness Test or you start the notebook without HDD and go in the BIOS. Do you hear the sound without HDD too?

Bye

I gave my old XP operating system PC to a friend of mine for his use. It was working fine until a couple of days ago, when the speakers quit working. I was able to get them to function, but the sound that came out of them, whether it was from youtube, a CD, or Tech Guy, was high-pitched and tinny. I put in a new set of speakers, but it had the same results. The high-pitched sound is not TOO high--it's not the chipmunks--but it definitely is not normal (Tech Guy sounded like Tech Girl). I Googled the problem but could find no one who has had this type of sound distortion out of their speakers. There are no conflicts with the hardware. Is it the sound card? Thanks for any and all help.

Hey folks!

I just purchased myself a Radeon HD 5870 graphic card and previous from that I've been running a Club Nvidia GTX 8800 card. As I had montaged my new graphic card into my mainboard(Asus P5P43TD) and was going to boot up the mainboard immediately begins to play an ear numbering high pitch sound. My first guess was that I had forgotten to plug in the power cord to the CPU but that didnt seem to be the root of the sound. Im unsure if it was actually the mainboard or the graphic card, my main thought is that I need to get myself a new PSU since I think I currently run with a 450W or 550W, accordingly it was said in the manual it only required a 500W. Since Im running two hardrives, a cd player, 6 fans and the mainboard I think that might be the concern but I am quite uncertain in this so I came to consult you folks. Any suggestions?

Regards
Terror

I just installed my new EVGA GeForce GTX750 1G G-Sync video card and it works great, but I'm getting a really high pitched whining sound from it.

I know the older versions of this card had noisy fans but this one is quiet except for this high pitched noise. I saw threads in the EVGA forum for similar problems on other EVGA cards.

I think I'm going to return it but would like to know what is an equivalent card for a similar price. I paid $102 for it and I now see it for $109 so something in that price range would be great.

I'm not a gamer, just wanted a decent video card with a DVI output so I could use my DVI KVM switch with my two Desktop computers.

A:High pitched whining sound from new EVGA GeForce GTX750 1G

Back in 2007 I had a noisy fan in a brand new desktop. And (after considerable angst) the source was the NVIDIA GeForce graphics card. Turned out there was a white wire touching the GeForce fan under the card, and that was the source of the noise. I moved the wire and restarted the machine. It was totally quiet. Perhaps a quick look at your fan to make sure nothing is touching it?

Hey there, I'm having this problem with my computer. Sometimes it will randomly go black and freeze up and also high pitched sound similar to a tv but louder emits from any and all speakers that are on including headphones. I think this is a problem with the sound card but I dont really know what the problem is so I didnt know what to ask support. BTW my card is the Sound Blaster Audigy Platinum eX 24bit.

If you want the rest of the specs..

AMD Athlon 64 3500+
MSI K8T Neo 2 Mobo
ATI Radeon 9800+ Pro
Thermaltake 400w PSU
2x 512 Kingston ValueRam
Windows XP Professional SP2

I hope someone can help me on this because this has happened to me once or twice while I was playing Counter-Strike, and CAL is coming up. I don't wanna get dropped in CAL.

Thanks

A:Computer freezes up, screen goes dark, high pitched sound

Check the fan on your processor and video card. While the system is powered down, you should be able to spin the fans, and you should feel no real resistance. If they're tough to spin, then there's your problem.

I have been reading around about other threads I didn't quite get an answer... ok I just got a brand new vaio I have been having various problems with it just small trying to work it out... just about everything is fixed except when I run a program I get a high pitched noise... I don't mean just any program I mean programs such as counterstrike, or sometimes a virus scan, I know it's the fan speeding up to keep cool, but is it supposed to make a high pitched noise?
 

A:CPU fan high pitched

The smaller the fan you have, the higher its pitch.

And a high RPM 80mm fan is pretty high pitched.

The 40mm ones are just unbearable, as I found out today. But I can't remove it as its in my new 24port switch.

Whenever I record through my line in socket on my sound card there is always a high pitched squeeling noise in the background. Ive used programs to remove it but that also reduces the quality of the sound.
I thought it might be the cooling fans causing it. that is the only thing i can think of other than the card is no good.

Hi,

I have an Advent 7066M laptop running Windows XP. If I connect headphones or speakers to it and try to play audio or video, the sound is too high pitched. Does anyone know what I can do to correct that?

Thanks,
Joe

A:Audio Is Too High Pitched

Try rolling back the sound driver from within Device Manager, joebeaven. If this is not an option, uninstall the sound driver and reboot. If the driver is not automatically reinstalled after reboot: "Drivers can be installed from the c:\applications\drivers folder and utilities from the c:\applications\tools folder." This info was taken from here.If your issue started recently, there may have been some form of corruption that has occurred.

Hi, I'm getting a ridiculously annoying high pitched buzzing coming from my speakers. The buzzing seems to mimic how hard the hard drive is working at the moment. I'm prety sure its not the speakers because i get the same sound if i plug headphones into the slot, but I'm pretty sure its not the built in sound card either because I still get the buzz (although not as loud but still annoyingly audible) from my other USB sound card.

I use an MSI K7N2g Nforce 2, and my harddrive is a 160gb hitachi (cant remember exact modeL)

Any help is greatly appreciated.
 

A:High pitched buzzing

Sounds like the speakers may need to be shielded or you need a new set of speakers. Could be the EMF noise is originating from inside the PC as well if the sound card components are not shielded well enough.

Basically, I just bought a whole load of new computer parts to build into a PC for my brother (christmas gift). I've done it countless times, but this time I'm getting some bizzare problems. I'll list the specs first.

P4 3.0E

512 RAM

ASUS P4P800 SE motherboard

Thermaltake 400w Powersupply.

Radeon 9600 Pro.

120 Gig Seagate SATA HD.
Now, with the stock powersupply *Came in the case, not the Thermaltake* I plugged it into everything and the computer booted and ran fine EXCEPT the PSU had a burning smell that was not to my liking (300w). So I put in my 400w Thermaltake Powersupply and it makes this odd high pitched noise when it's on the on position at the back, but the computer itself not switched on. Yet, if I lay the computer on its side, it runs and the sound goes away... EXCEPT if I plug in the keyboard, it makes the sound again and the computer doesn't boot when the sound is on. I *KNOW* the power supply works. What could be the problem here? I'm seriously stumped =/ All the components seem to be functioning as they should, but there's no way a 400w Powersupply should be overloaded like that.

Thanks, in advance.

Does anyone know what would cause my hard drive to make this high pitched shrill sounding, almost alarm-like, noise???? It does it occasionally and I cannot connect any certain action to it's happening. It definetly is coming from my hard drive, not the speakers. Sometimes it occurs and then overything kind of freezes up and I can't even shut it down, I have to just hit reset. I recently had a new hard drive installed with more space because my pc tech friend told me that was probably the reason, not enough room. But, now I have 30 GB with only 1 GB used, so that's not it. I also had a new fan put in but that wasn't it. Like just now--it started again--out of the blue--my cursor just hesitated and I knew it was coming and then it started. Any ideas? It's driving me crazy!! It's loud and makes you want to scream! Even my dog leaves the room! Help! Thanks! Angie
