Acer Aspire VN7-791G speaker makes buzzing noise

Q: Acer Aspire VN7-791G speaker makes buzzing noise

Hi, I have a problem with my laptop. It was in service at the end of August with the cpu stuck at 0,8GHz problem. They fixed it with the replacement of the motherboard. This problem is fixed, but after the service a new problem came. My left speaker started making buzzing noise when I start playing games(CS:GO or GTA V tested on both). Feels like as my laptop getting hotter and hotter the noise gets louder and louder. If I close the game there is still buzzing noise, but as the laptop cools down it starts getting quieter until it stops doing it. I tried to uninstall and install the audio driver(latest from the acer website), disable or mute the speakers, but nothing help. I'm always using my laptop with headphones. Thanks for the advices in advance.

For the past couple weeks I've been having trouble with a very loud staticky buzzing noise coming from the bottom left corner of my Aspire VN7-791G (left of the touch pad below the keyboard) when the machine is under load (working in game engines and playing games, mainly). I've had this laptop for a little over a year and never had this issue before. On the software side everything seems fine, I haven't noticed FPS drops or freezes/lockups or anything of the sorts. I do get an occasional blue screen but those are very uncommon after all the driver and BIOS updates (power state failure or something like that). The buzzing seems to get louder depending on the work load. If I close all active programs the noise tends to still stay constant for couple few minutes, then it dies down gradually until it's silent completely.I tried recording the sound, and when I listen through headphones it sounds a lot like the real thing (just not as loud):  http://vocaroo.com/i/s1cZvjzHgHs5.  Also: I haven't tried replicating this yet but earlier I was running a game on battery battery power by accident. The machine was completely silent. After a while I got a message saying battery was low, so I plugged in the charger and...instantly heard the buzzing at maximum loudness (not a gradual increase like normal). Could it have something to do with power saving settings maybe? Or more likely to be a hardware thing? T... Read more

Hi,I have had my HP laptop (the model is Notebook- 15-r237nl) for about a year and a half now. Usually, it was making a very strong buzzing noise in the beginning, when I was switching it on, which I found out is normal. Then, it started making softer buzzing noises; however, if I turned the laptop off and on again, they were going away.Now, it is a couple of days that it keeps buzzing quite loud, and it doesn't go away when I try to switch it off and on again. Can anybody help me? Also, it should be some kind of assurance or assistance included for the first two years, right? Thank you very much!!!

Hi there, I just got this new HP laptop and it works smoothly but the fan makes a constant buzzing noise from startup. The fan doesn't seem to be running very fast and I think the noise sounds abnormal and is unlike anything I'd ever heard from my old laptop. I turned off the fan constantly running setting in the BIOS (and now the laptop is completely silent) which is a temporary solution but I'd like to know if this is  fault that I should get looked at.

Hello, I bought my HP Envy around June 2014. I just visited the forum to see if you already figure it out.

If you have not idea how to fix the problem, stop selling a defective product. Friends always ask me for my references when they are thinking about buying a new PC or laptop. Yes, you guess right, I have never recommended HP to them since I had this bad experience with your products and horrendous technical support. I always tell them "get away of the products from that Brand!"

My elitebook 1030 seems to occassionally makes these small but definitely noticeable and very annoying "buzzing" sounds.  I've noticed that it makes these sounds when I'm activating the trackpad, scrolling, browsing, basically when there's active movement on screen.  Could this be due to the SSD, or the graphics card, or something else? Also, I find that rebooting the machine gets rid of the problem, but if I leave it on sleep for a while, and then use it again, these noises come back.  I also own an elitebook 1020, so I know for a fact that the machine (fanless and SSD) should be completely silent.  In fact, this is the reason I went with the core M over the more powerful cpus, so these noises are really bothering me.  The machine is within warranty, but I hope there is an easy fix.  Anyone with a similar issue?  Is this a known issue? Thanks!

Its a giga-byte 8IEXP in the system I built 2 months ago, first one i've ever built. About a month ago I began to hear a buzzing noise occasionally,its gotten more frequent. I thought it was the CPU Fan but after reseating it tonight I listened to it closely and its the Mobo fan. a picture of the mobo is here:


Its the golden fan to the left of the CPU slot, anyways there are 4 screws on top which dont appear to hold the fan the mobo, but instead hold the fan together. Ive tried tightening them but they're pretty much as tight as can get. There appears to be 2 screws holding the fan into the mobo, but they're are like plastic caps on top of them I'm kind of afraid to try and pry off, at least until someone tells me to do so. Does this sound like a defective mobo or just something that needs some tightening? Thanks.

A:My mobo fan makes the most horrible buzzing noise....

Seems to me like the thing just needs a little grease It's easy enough to do. Just remove the fan, take the sticker off the front, take off the little round cover with a flat-tip screwdriver or something of the sort, then add some type of grease (WD-40 has even worked for me, if you can get it in there without a mess) to the little the hole. Put the little round cover back on, re-apply the sticker and screw it back on.

Or, just buy another chip fan thats the same size, they're pretty cheap.

5 year old 32 inch crt t.v makes a high pitched buzzing noise, this happens randomly, it goes away if i put a little pressure on the top, or if i bash it, but it soon comes back.

any thoughts ... thanks

A:T.v makes a high pitched buzzing noise

Open the back of the old CRT television and carefully clean the dust and dirt away from the high-voltage components, usually located on the right side of the chassis looking at the back of the TV. The CRT holds a high-voltage charge where a big red or black wire connects to the glass tube so be careful. The area around the red wire rubber cup can be cleaned using a spray bottle of window cleaner, but again be careful not to get shocked... 25,000 to 30,000 volts can be present on the CRT

Does the buzzing sound come from inside the compute or from the speakers? Is there a message from the bluescreen error? Do you have any .dmp files in the C:\Windows\Minidump folder?

Hello, just recently joined the forums, yay!

I'll tell you about my problem, if anyone could help I would really appreciate it.

My computer is from 2010 Custom made. It's been working like it should been for the last years while upgrading different parts for more demanding games. Everything except the motherboard and the CPU is upgraded.

I don't know exactly but 3 months + ago my computer suddenly started to freeze and sometimes make a buzzing sound. Mark my words, this only happens when I play computer games. I noticed the freezing when I were playing Rome Total War 2, after 15 - 30min the computer freezes and I need to force shutdown/restart. Then I stopped playing it for months and then I wanted to play the game again, and yet again it happend.

Today I bought and installed Civilization Beyond Earth and after 8-12min of gameplay the computer freezes. Don't know why this happen, but I thought my computer only freezed because Rome Total War 2 is such a big game and is demanding performance and my computer can't handle it. But when civilization is on 2-4GB well.. I don't know.

I have been following this case from 2012: PC Freezes and makes Buzzing Noise when Running Programs but no luck.

I think I have the exactly same problem, also tried to follow the steps but I must admit. It's a little to advanced for me. I also saw that this was suggested: Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

A:PC Freezes and makes Buzzing Noise when Running Games

well first thing which would be the simple way to go is to completely uninstall those 2 games using revo uninstaller which will not only uninstall the games; but also uninstall the windows registry entries windows puts in when something is installed. What that hopefully will do is sort of create a fresh clean slate on which to reinstall those games. here is the link to revo uninstaller:

Download Revo Uninstaller Freeware - Free and Full Download - Uninstall software, remove programs, solve uninstall problems

download, install, and run it and select the 2 games; let it uninstall them; then reboot; then try reinstalling the games again. IF that does not do anything; the next thing i would do is take a look at how much ram your system has. Your system ideally should have at the very least 8gb ram to run games but i would reccomend 12gb as the more ram there is the better the system performance will be. if no results still; post back and we can go from there.

I have an ASUS LED monitor and an MSI motherboard. When the computer goes into hibernate the blue LED indicator on the face of the monitor blinks. When it starts blinking there is a slight buzzing noise that is emitted. Since my computer is in my bedroom I was hoping to be able to change this so at least it doesn't make a noise when I am trying to sleep. Is this possible?

So today i finally finished gathering all the hardware for my custom computer and got it all hooked up and booted up.

Everything has been going good, got all drivers and what-not installed.

Lastly i installed Half Life 2 on it, and noticed that only when im playing the game that i hear a high pitch buzzing noise. Its loudness decreases when the game is paused and goes away when i close the game. I first checked all fans to see if that was it and checked for rubbing cords, but after discovering it gets louder and quieter depending on the load, it sounds more electrical. Cant tell if its coming from the CPU or GPU or if its either. Any ideas what could be causing this?

System specs:
Asus P5Q Pro
Intel E8400
Corsair TX650
Corsair Dominator PC2-8500
EVGA Nvidia Geforce 9800 GTX+
Seagate Barracuda 500GB

A:Computer makes high pitch buzzing noise

That can be just about anything... bad speaker or speaker with torn sound pad, electronic radio wave interference from another device, etc. It can take a long time tracking it down.
Often, however, the cause is merely a mechanical vibration from a cable or plug vibrating against the case, another hardware item, or touching the blade of a case fan or heatsink fan.. If the frequency goes up and down, it can be a fan blade, or dirt on a fan blade. Clean all fans with a que tip and denatured alcohol. Use plastic slip-ties to tie down anything loose.
You might also want to use a cheap AM/FM radio as a detector. Move the radio around the case when it is tuned to a weak station, to see if there is a change in volume or frequency of static.
Defective sound cards, damaged by too much high volume can also result in unwanted sounds, as can wear to a video graphics card, any cooling fan wearing out, optical drive gears or motors.
Remove components, or remove and replace, are the only practical ways to find some such problems.

My PC has been fine for about a year until today where it started freezing every couple minutes and making a loud buzzing noise in my headset. I checked my computer for malware and there is none. I have also updated all of the drivers that I could access from windows 10 driver manager and that didn't help. I would just like to know how to fix this ASAP.

My email is [email protected] if you need to contact me.

So a few weeks ago I was in Sony Vegas editing a video and suddenly my mouse and keyboard both became unresponsive and a loud buzzing noise started coming out of my speakers. I left it for a few minutes but nothing happened, there was no blue screen of death, no error message,nothing. so the only thing I could do was force a restart.

Over the next few days the problem continued in graphical/CPU intensive programs (such as photoshop, Vegas, fsx, etc), and all I could do was restart. Not once did I see an error message. I did originally think that it was due to an overclocking (4.4 GHz) however I checked my temperatures and they didn't ever peak above 60-70. Neverthelss, I underclocked back to 3.3 but still experienced the problem.

I read online that I should do a clean install of windows so I did that, and up until now I thought the problem was solved. And a couple of minutes ago I was playing age of empires and the computer froze and then The buzzing started again.

Here's video I recorded of the sound: youtube.com/watch?v=JiyAqeuGreU

I'm really clueless to what it could be. Ive reinstalled NVIDIA drivers, cleaned out the registry, reinstalled windows, what can it be?!

I think it might have something to do with my graphics card or drivers or something along those lines, as the problem only occurs when in games or video/picture editing programs. However, my computer and all the components are new (about a month), and I can't think of any possible meddling I ... Read more

A:Computer freezes and makes buzzing noise, no BSOD?

I would say its a graphics card problem, I have had the same happen to me before but that was due to me putting a heavy overclock on my card. I have also had the same happen with a couple of old graphics cards that died.

Although the computer is new, it is know for graphics to fail at any time, if you have the chance you can prove it by testing your pc with a different graphics card, if you don't have access to one then I would either take the pc back to where you bought it and get them to test it, or if you built it yourself I would RMA the card.

Ideally it would be good for you to try another card in your PC first to make 100% sure it is the card, but it certainly sounds like it to me.

Hi WhatTheFlup. All your dumps are of year 2012.

Configure dumps

First, we want to make sure the computer is saving your dump files. Go to Control Panel -> System -> Advanced System Settings -> Startup and Recovery [Settings] Make sure that "Write Debugging Information" is set to Small Memory Dump (256kb) if it is not already.

Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD

Next, make sure that the folder C:\Windows\Minidump exists. If not, create it (allow permission if asked). Make sure any dumps you want to analyze, whether yours or others', are in this folder. You can ZIP/RAR the files and send them to someone else to analyze as well.

Recommendations based on the other files uploaded -

Daemon Tools/Alcohol %Start Menu\Programs\DAEMON Tools Lite
Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on some Win7 systems (mostly due to the sptd.sys driver, although we have seen dtsoftbus01.sys blamed on several occasions). Please uninstall the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration): DuplexSecure - FAQ

As an alternative, many people recommend the use of Total Mounter or Magic ISO

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

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

This has been a problem since the first time I tried to take my laptop in my room. Due to this problem, I am forced to do everything on my living room aka no privacy. I'm begging for a solution.

Hello,I own Acer v17 nitro black edition from about a month and I was very happy.It did cover my expectation for hardware power combined with very good design.However the laptop seems to have serious issues with the cooling.I don't play very resource consuming games and in the matter of fact I play an online game which is about 5-6 years old.During the in-game expirience I began to notice lag which made the game unplayable after a research I found that the CPU is overheating and there was a throttling which decreased the clock rate of the processor to 700 MHz.CoolBoost is ON.Active cooling is ON.I even took the laptop to an autorized service and everything seems to be OK with the hardware cooling.The only thing that helped and made the laptop usable for gaming is that I decreased the maximum CPU to 85%.CPU now run at 2.2 GHz clock rate at most. ( Standard clock rate of the CPU is 2.6 to max. with Turbo Boost 3,6 GHz) I don't believe that such expensive laptop should have such issues with such load.Does someone have any solution for the overheating ?Maybe someone from the Acer staff could help ?I'm very dissapointed from the product right now.

I'm uncertain of why it would just start happening randomly. I'm not sure if you have tried a system restore to before the problem started happening to see if there might be some sort of software corruption interrupting the cooling process. I know that you said you took the system to a authorized service center, I assume that means you contacted Acer and sent the system to them for testing?

My XPS 410 has been freezing every time I log on to my name, even in safe mode and as the admin. When it freezes i can still move the mouse but cant click on anything and a high pitch buzzing noise is emitted from the tower. I took the side off the last time it was buzzing so i could figure out where it is coming from. It is coming from a little black speaker on the mother board. I cleaned out the fans and ran multiple virus/malware programs (malware bytes and avira antivir) and still it freezes. i dont know what to do and i need my computer because i am a student. Thanks so much!!

I have a computer with external active speakers connected to the 3.5mm phone plug. I'm using win 7 32-bit and when I start my computer the speaker starts to make strange sounds, almost sounds like an old modem. I have disabled the start-up sound since I don't want that, the noise is there until I do anything with the sound driver, or so it seams. If I for example I play a sound or even mute/enable the cd volume the sound stops and don't come back until the next time the computer is started. I have had the computer on for a long time without doing anything and the sound don't stop until I do something with any sound or sound setting.

Additional things I have tried so far to fix the problem but not succeeded:
1. I have been into BIOS and the sound does not start in BIOS, it is when windows is starting the sound starts.
2. Re-installed driver
3. Tried to set the register DrvAzComIdlePowerState and a few more to 00 00 00 00.

Do you have the correct sound driver? In most cases the PC Vendor (or motherboard in the case of a home built) sound drivers are the preferred. Non-Vendor drivers, in many cases, either do not work or do not work correctly.

If you have the correct sound driver, go to the Device Manager and RIGHT click on the entry for your sound to highlight it and then LEFT click "Uninstall". DO NOT check the box to also uninstall the drivers. Restart the PC and after Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound. This will put the sound initialization in a different place in the sequence and may even put it on a different shared IRQ (Interrupt) and maybe fix it.

Hey everyone, thanks for reading.

After switching to a new power supply, the motherboard no longer POSTs and when turned on the internal speaker makes a continous 'clicking' sound, not a beep. its a very very short quiet click.

I was switching a power supply on a friends computer as he was upgrading his graphics card, and so also updated his power supply.

His system was a pentium 4. and the motherboard is a Gigabyte GA 8I915P-G.
The new power supply is 480w.

I did nothing but switch the power supplies. The only thing I suspect that caused this is the original power supply only had a 20pin ATX power connector onto the motherboard. Whereas the new PSU had 20pin + 4pin 12v ATX. Without thinking, I put in the 20pin and also the 4pin.

After I switched it on and it didnt post. I looked at the voltages of the new power supply, and the sticker I took of the 4pin female slot on the motherboard. The sticker said 2.2v 4pin, And the PSU said 12v 4pin. So i'm suspecting I may have fried it.

Does this make sense? Have I fried my friends mobo?

Thanks for your time, I hope you can help.

I do alot of gaming, and the fan seems to make noise,while rubbing against something when I: tilt the laptop downard, press under the left side of the laptop too hard with my knee, move the laptop from mid-air to my lap quickly. the sound is miniscule or nonprevalent when non gaming, obviously because the fan is not in much use,as the computer is not that hot.  so is this normal laptop behavior? or should i get it checked out? I asked around and someone said that it might just be touching a wire, and that it isn't a big deal. He said I should just get a usb cooling pad. Will this issue cause my fan to break faster? will it cause over-heating issues? i have never gamed on a laptop nor owned one, so i'm pretty oblivious. thanks fro your help.

A:Aspire-E5-574G fan makes noise

The faster the fan spins, the noisier it will sound. They either have a ball bearing or a sleeve bearing and the bearings can wear out, but they last for years. I wouldn't really think it was hitting or rubbing something in most cases.

From when I first turn on my machine, I hear:
b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b from my speakers, along with other feedback. This happened awhile ago, when I first bought my computer. Muting from within Windows doesn't work, and sometimes, the sound from windows stops, to I turn the dial to >OFF, and back to >ON.

At first it was a faint noise when I moved the mouse. AND, this doesn't happen with headphones, or when the speakers are plugged into something besides the computer (like my iPod).

It is really getting on my nerves, please help :/

Sorry for the late reply.

In this regard, I suspect that the grounding connection for the plug to which you have connected your PC is improper.

► If your power Cord is 2 Pin, then connect it to a 2 pin Plug.
► If your power Cord is 3 pin, then connect it to a 3 pin plug.

This could be the reason for such noises at times. For the above reasons, some of the capacitors on the main board might have gone bad. So, you try to sort out the same.

I have had this laptop for a little over 2 years and the sound system is great. However, recently, I noticed that the sounds have become more quiet from when I am watching videos and listening to music. I realised that out of the 4 speakers under my laptop, only 2 (a right and left speaker) are working. The other 2 are not producing any sounds. I have run troubleshooting on the speakers and they seemed to be fine, except that surround sound is no longer available in the options (it is an un-clickable faded font).

I am not a tech person, so I am not sure what I should do from here. I am hoping for some advice here before I seek help from the laptop repair stores. Thank you!

Please help me!!!!!!

A:How can i connect my Acer Aspire 4710Z to bluetooth Speaker

Hi Welcome to Seven Forums ... Have you tried Update Driver to see if Windows can find a Driver for the Device ? ...

I have searched on the Iball Website does not seem to be any Drivers or even Information available about your Model ...
I even looked at some other Models they do not seem to have any Drivers either ...
So i read some of the Manuals they only had a brief description nothing else ..
I did notice though they do have a Support section ...

Hello. friend has the above PC. For some time now, at random intervals, it will emit a 4 second whistle (haven't heard it myself, but assume its from the mobo speaker) followed by 2 secs of silence. Desktop is frozen. Noise continues the same cycle until PC powered off. The inside is dust free and all connections seem secure. Any thoughts, please?

Okay, well I think I've got a bit of an issue here.

The sound had originally worked before, but I guess I played my music a little too loud.
I was used to amplified speakers...

And now the left internal speaker might have blown out.
The issue is that I hear crackling.
I can hear some of the noise coming from it so it's not 100% dead, but the right speaker still works.

It's just scratchy and not very loud when I play music from the left speaker.
And so I was wondering if maybe I blew the speaker out, and if so....

I was wondering if there was a way to fix this easily. (Yes, sound drivers are fine and so are balances on stereo)

If not, would Acer cover this in their 1 year warranty?
I just bought it August 13th.
Damn Circuit City has the stupid 30 day return thing...
So I don't think they can take it back.

I did some cleanup work on it and ran this hijack in case you guys can see any cause that's still there. I was looking at that 020 line the winlogon notify..could this be the problem and how did it happen?

A:New Acer Aspire Blue Screen shutdown & noise

Hello -


This laptop had a blue screen and very loud noise.

Sounds like a hardware issue.

I don't see any sign of infection in that log, which is what this section of the forum focuses on. That said...your version of HijackThis is outdated. Furthermore...

We no longer use HijackThis as our initial analysis tool, as it's not nearly as detailed as the tools we do use.

I don't believe this is a malware caused issue. Had you not posted a HijackThis log in your Windows XP topic, you might have received more detailed assistance there. You may want to repost in that topic, and ask someone to remove the HijackThis log, and pursue non-malware troubleshooting for you...or create a new topic in the Hardware section, with no HijackThis log. All such logs get referred here.

As far as the missing file in the O20 line, I'm not sure how that would affect your machine. I have that file in more than one location, system32, system32\dllcache and ServicePackFiles\I386....Windows File Protection should have replaced it.

You might do a search on your system to see if it's another location, and copy it to System32. Otherwise, you way wish to run the System File Checker

Go to Start->Run and type in sfc /scannow and hit OK. Let it scan. If it finds any files missing/corrupted, it may ask for the Windows CD. Otherwise, it will auto-close after it's done.

If after all that, you think the machine is infected, due to other symptom... Read more
