Buzzing sound coming from speakers

Q: Buzzing sound coming from speakers

My Dell Inspiron n7110 sometimes makes a buzzing sound from its speakers whenever I have audio playing. This only happens when I'm using the built-in speakers, if I'm using my headset, my sound works just fine. Is this a sign that my speakers are old, and might need replacing, or is there an easier fix for this?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

A: Buzzing sound coming from speakers

I had this issue recently and I noticed that even when I'm using my headset the buzzing sound appear :|
In my case, the buzzing sound was not continuous and can only be heard while playing audio and using the browser or other things. I found out that (DirectX 11) somehow has something to do with the audio. So I downgrade it to (9.0c) and the buzz gone.

I'm kind of lost, i've tried everything i can to my knowledge.

It doesn't happen always, only when my computer emits a noise such as somebody talking in skype or music. When the computer is meant to be silent, it stays silent. When it is meant to emit sounds it emits the usual sounds but then emits this loud static along with the sound.

It's not the speakers because i had the same problem with my previous ones.
My drivers are all up to date and i have no sound card.
It's not my rear audio jack because when i place the speakers in my headphones slot, it still emits the same noise.
I'm not sure if it is interference because i don't have anything near my computer or subwoofer other than a lamp.
Could the computer be interfering with subwoofer/speakers?

I'm really lost and this has been a very annoying problem...

Any thoughts?

Everything just freezes, I hear some buzzing coming from the speakers, I can't bring up Task Manager or anything and I have to hard restart. The event logs don't show anything besides that I shut down my computer incorrectly with the hard restart.
The freeze usually occurs once a week, but I've done some testing and changing the Number of Processors from 4 to 3 prevented the freeze from occuring for 2 weeks. Maybe this relates to it?
I was thinking of maybe replacing my PSU, since this is a year old prebuilt computer given to me by my uncle and the PSU is still this.

so I was making a video in sony vegas pro a few minutes ago, and noticed a buzzing/sizzling noise coming from my computer, so I opened up the side panel to take a look.
I think it's either my GPU or my CPU, but the weird thing is it's not the fans because I stopped them with my finger and the buzzing continued.
also another MAJORLY weird thing is that the buzzing only occurs when the video is playing. when it's paused- nothing.
Ive also noticed this happening during gaming.
could you guys please inform me of what you think is happening? because I'm at a loss.
and yes, I'm sure the buzzing is coming from my GPU, CPU or Motherboard, and not my speakers.
please help me, I dont like the sound of this...
also sometimes, out of nowhere, the screen will like go red for a few seconds then just turn off, then it re-appears and a notification bubble pops up saying 'Display Driver stopped responding and has recovered. Kernel 260.99 has stopped working.'
what is going on???

Determine exactly where the noise is coming from. Its more likely to be your power supply than your gpu, and least likely to be your cpu.

Hi everyone,

Let me start by explaining the problem that's occuring here,
everytime a graphical processing application (a heavy one like games, ...) starts running, it starts making this annoying buzzing, humming sounds that won't stop until you stop the app.
Now i'm pretty sure it's the gfx card causing this noise 'cause when
I start my driver and test the 3D settings, the noise occurs till I stop the 3D settings.

Now this might be the cause of some interference between my mobo (with onboard soundcard) / psu / wireless card, but to be honest i have no frickin' clue of what really could be the problem.
Another weird thing is that if I wear headphones, i can actually hear the noise through my headphones and it coming out of my pc at the same time. Even when using a VoIP program, other people can hear this noise (and even louder than myself I believe) through their speakers, only when my mic is activated though.

This problem has been occuring for about almost a year now, but i never really tried anything because it didnt bother me that much (as my music is always on), but it can't go on like that forever right?

system specs:
ati 4890
AMD X4 955 3.2 ghz
Asus M4A79T Deluxe
PSU: OCZ ModXstream pro 700W

now i dont think the rest of the specs really matter ...

I hope anyone can help, it would be really appreciated.

It might also be the power supply. I suggest substituting a known good graphics card and then power supply to find the source of the problem.

A:Buzzing sound from speakers?

Hi, well the buzzing sound can be a problem with the hardware, update the drivers for audio from hp.com and connect external speakers or headphones and check if the buzz persists on the external speakers too , if there is no buzzing sound in the external speaker , then its the hardware problem , call hp for repair , if there is a buzzing sound on the external speaker too , then it must be a software problem , run a recovery to check  steps to run a recovery power down the note book as soon as you hit the power button , keep tapping the esc key on the top left corner until a new window opens up(the start up menu ) choose the option f11 and choose the option trouble shooting, and run the option called recoveryNote: recovery  will cause all the data to be lost on your computer and makes the computer to go back to day 1 condition , try and back up the data before you run the recovery

Also, it happens in Windows Media Player, Adobe Flash, or anything that has audio. Is there a way to fix this? Thanks.

Hello everyone.

My speakers are MS/ML-T508, and when I turn them on, they are humming very loudly. This problem appeared only when I woke up today and turned on my PC. Everything was fine yesterday.

I included the model of my speakers and the sound they are playing in the attachments (I recorded the sound with my phone, so the quality is kind of bad. If you can't hear anything, turn up the volume on your speakers). Please note that my twin stereo output speakers are fine and the sound is coming from the big box in the middle (Don't know the name of it), and the sound is playing whenever I turn it on (It doesn't matter if it's plugged in the PC or not).

Thanks in advance and if you need any more info on the problem, I'll share it. And feel free to move the thread if it's in the wrong sub-forum.

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 tried everything, various video card drivers, disconnected all USB devices, clean OS installs with no extra software on the background...

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

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.

Even then, the noise can drop in and out like 10 times in a minute and is constantly messing up the internet.

My computer had to be restarted fresh and windows was reinstalled. This is the second time this had to be done. Every time this happens, the computer does not recognize the speakers or anything plugged into the USB connectors. The first time this happened, some guy fixed it, but I have no idea how he did it. Sound will not come from the speakers. I went to the audio section under the control panel and my speakers do not appear. How do I get the computer to recognize that I am in fact plugging things into the audio/USB connectors? Thanks for the help.

A:No Sound Coming From Speakers

Do you have a sound card installed or do you use on-board sound? If a sound card, did you install the drivers for it? (I know nothing about on-board sound).

I'm having a problem audio problem. The audio on my PC was fine but suddenly, no sound was coming from the speakers. I'm using on-board sound. I've checked the connections at the back and nothing's disconnected. I tested my speakers on another PC and they're working just fine. I've updated the driver of the audio device and I've also checked the device manager but it didn't seem to detect any problems. I turned off my PC and unplugged it for a few seconds. When I turned it on again, the sound was working fine. I thought that it was just an isolated incident. Same thing happened a few days later. Is this a hardware problem, or is it something else?

It's hard to describe this noise but it's something like a duh-duh sort of noise.
This looks like my problem here but the answers didn't work:

A:Duh-Duh sound keeps coming from speakers

Keep the Volume Mixer open (right click on speaker in your taskbar> Open Volume Mixer) and watch it when the sound goes off. You should see a spike under one of the running applications in the mixer. That will tell you what's creating the sound, and we can move on from there.

I have a fairly new Gateway computer and have had several problems with it. As of a couple of days ago, I no longer have sound on my computer. None of my games have sound and I can no longer listen to the online radio stations. However, today when I was on a website, music did come out of the speaker (something the creator of the site built into his homepage). Gateway suggested I update my drivers, but none of them needed to be updated (when I attempted to update it told me I had the newest version). What can I do to see where the problem is coming from? Thanks!

I'm on my dad's Dell XPS laptop (runs on Vista) and can't get sound. It's apparently been this way for a long time, so I can't begin to guess what triggered the problem. Here's what I am looking at right now:

The driver seems to be working fine based on what those pictures show. I get no error messages. Still though, nothing comes out the laptop speakers. There's headphone jacks on it, and I've tried them with no luck. I have a Sound Blaster X-Fi card, but it's not plugged in.

Any help I can get on this would be appreciated!

I was using my Dell Optiplex 210L desktop (old, but still quite useful!) and I noticed that my sound wasn't working. The only thing I installed was PaintShop Pro X2 which I found new sealed at a thift store for $2.50, but I doubt that would cause it.

What I have done:

Checked device manager, its fine
Checked volume on both windows and speakers, fine
Rebooted, didn't work

I tried booting into Lubuntu Linux, and it worked then.
 

A:No sound coming from speakers?

Nice - you have narrowed this down to a Windows issue . I would try updating the driver first or rolling it back if updating is not an option. If you go back into device manager and check the properties on your sound device is there an option to Update or Roll Back the driver to a previous version?

If that doesn't work I would try uninstalling it in device manager the right click on Sound in Device Manager and select Scan for Hardware Changes to have it detected / re-installed or just reboot.

my laptop's speakers stopped working after I tried plugin the laptop to my TV.

I've tried plugin headphones and that does not work either. Can someone help?
 

A:No sound coming from speakers

Do you have any buttons on the keyboard or laptop to mute or un-mute the sound?

Go to the Control Panel and then to Sounds and Audio Devices. You should see an Audio tab, make sure the right sound card is selected and that everything else is fine like the volume levels and so on.

Hello!

I recently picked up a PC off a friend that he wasn't using, I formatted it and had to individually install all the chipset drivers as he didn't give me the motherboard CD, I'm having a problem with the sound, all the drivers are installed, I can get sound from my headphones but I cannot get sound when I plug in speakers.

Has anyone had a similar issue to this before?

Thanks

I am running Windows 98SE and recently reformatted, added more ram and a new hard drive. After all this was done, I downloaded winamp 5.1 and while the program runs, no sound will come out of my speakers. I went to the gateway suport website, entered my computer serial number and downloaded the drivers for my Soundblaster Live Sound card (model #CT4830). In the mix of changing settings, now i am unable to even open winamp and it gives me this wave output error "Another program is using your soundcard. Please change out device (in Waveout plugin configuration), switch to DirectSound output (in Winamp preferences/plug-ins/output) or get a sound card which can play multiple streams."

What in the world do I do to fix this problem?

Thanks,
Nate
 

A:Still no sound coming from my speakers....please help

you could always try uninstalling winamp, then do a fresh download and reinstall it. i had a similar problem with winamp, i think there was an interuption in the download and it didnt install alll of the files onto the pc.

Just a thought, but its worth a try.

Hey, I've tried repairing speakers, checking for updates, switching which speakers I use, loads and loads of forums, but I can't get sound coming from the speakers, even though in the tests, they say they're fine. All my speakers/playback devices are showing, working or not, but I can't fix the problem.

I recently had to do a system restore, because of internet problems, took me ages to sort out, however the sound wasn't working before the restore anyway.

Haven't tried uninstalling/reinstalling the sound card/device yet, mainly because I only have my laptop here, if i need any disks then I'll need to wait a while to get them.

Sound does work with external speakers plugged in, so I'm starting to think I might need to get my laptop speakers fixed?

Sony Viao AR-71M is the model, I believe.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated

Thanks

Matt

A:I can't get sound coming from the speakers

A:Why do I not have sound coming from my speakers?

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

You need to reinstall your sound drivers.

If you use onboard sound then you can get the drivers from your mobo manufacturers website. If your computer is an oem such as Dell/E-machines etc, then visit the website of your computer manufacturer.

If you use a separate soundcard, then you will be able to get the drivers from your soundcard manufacturers website.

I recently moved and am hooking everything up to my PC. I cannot get any sound from my speakers. There are two places for jacks on the back of the PC and I have tried both.

I have ran XP troubleshooter and checked out the sound card. Everything worked before I dismantled it. Any suggestions??!!! could sure use the help. soon please!
