Speakers buzzing, no audio after new video card install

Q: Speakers buzzing, no audio after new video card install

I recently purchased a GTX 580 and after installing it and rebooting my computer, once windows fired up I noticed my speakers were making a high pitched noise, along with fluctuating static. Upon further investigation I realized my audio was also not working. Here are some things I have tried to remedy the situation:

- Checked the speakers: They work perfectly on another computer, likewise I still get the noise when I tried a different set of speakers and a set of earbuds in the problem computer

- Tried changing the video card out with the old GTX 460, didn't work

- I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling both audio and video drivers using these instructions (http://www.evga.com/forums/tm.aspx?m=586183&mpage=1) with drive sweeper, again to no success

- I have swapped out PSU's and still get the problem

- I have tried doing a fresh windows install with a spare HDD and I still get the noise as soon as windows boots

I have figured out that if I go in to Device Manager, under System Devices and disable one of the 'High Definition Audio Controller' (there are two, but the other is associated with my video card) then the noise will stop.

At this point I am pretty perplexed as to what is causing this. Could something on my board have been zapped? I'm out of ideas for a fix, any help/ideas would be greatly appreciated!

It acts like in this video:

I even plugged it into a new wall socket, and cleaned it from dust, updated Windows 10 to version 1511, and I even moved the ram memory in different slots, but the buzz still happens for a millisecond. I haven't experienced this in games afaik though.

Can anyone please help me? It is getting annoying. Before Windows 10, I had Windows 8.1, but I upgraded. This happened with Windows 8.1 as well.

I've just installed a e-GeForce FX 5200 in my computer. Previously, I was running my video from the on-board nForce2 chipset. I am also running my audio from the nForce2 chipset. Everything was working fine until I installed the video card and updated the display drivers. When I noticed the right channel not working I uninstalled the audio drivers and installed an updated version, to no avail. I tried a different set of speakers, yet had the same problem. I'm about at the end of my rope here; anyone know what could be wrong with this PoS?

I have a brand new Inspiron 7560 and I've been having a lot of issues with the audio and video sort of lagging and making a buzzing noise and stuttering, it happens every 15 minutes when watching something or listening to music.
I had this issue and then got the laptop replaced because I had no idea what the issue was. I don't like returning items but it was brand new and cost a lot so I was worried there was a bigger problem. It happened with the first one from the get go but with the replacement it started happening after a few days of use. It started off with static noises every so often roughly within the first say 30 minutes of turning the laptop on, and then it started doing the buzzing and lagging every 15 minutes like the first one I had. I've also noticed a static noise whenever putting the charger in or out.
I had a look on the internet on how to fix it before I got the first one replaced but none of it worked, I've had another look now and came across a thread but it was from 2011 so thought the fix may be outdated now. I thought my best bet was to just come straight here to see if anyone could help.
I'm really hoping this is a known issue and it's easy to remedy as I really don't want to return this one after already returning one. I'm sorry I haven't got much information about the issue, but I hope someone will be able to help me. If you need anything else I will try my best to answer any questions.
Thanks very much

A:Audio and Video make buzzing noise/stuttering every 15 minutes

Different folks have problems for different reasons.  I would suggest you open at least Task Manager to watch the performance on the system to see if anything pops up every 15 minutes which is using resources.
Keep an eye on Processor speed and utilization.  Also the drive usage.  I can't think of anything which goes on a 15 minute time interval, but possibly some setting you have set up such as checking for mail..
Using Resource Monitor would be even better,  but the software/browser you are using could also be involved.

My Audigy sound card has been producing some very peculiar background noise lately.
-When the system is idle, there is only a very faint but constant buzzing noise. This is louder and of different frequencies depending upon the colors being displayed on screen. Any change that occurs in the video (i.e. moving my mouse around or resizing windows) makes a faint zipping sound. This all occurs whether the monitor is plugged in/turned on or not.
-Aside from the video, I can hear just about every other process that happens inside my computer through the attached speakers/headphones (it does not matter what type of listening device I connect, the sound comes out of all 5 channels of the card itself). These processes include hearing my hard drive accessing data, such that I can tell if the read/write head is searching or reading. When reading, I can hear the data streaming through the cables. Therefore, I have constant background noise while watching a DVD/HDD video file. The noise is about a fifth as loud as the soundtrack, so I can still watch a movie and be only moderately annoyed.

This happened as much with my past Power supply as with my current, high quality one so it's not a question of that. All software settings for the card also seem to be ok.

The symptoms are consistent with hearing electrical radiation interference from all the electrons/Rf resonance that's zipping around inside my computer, the question is: why does my sound card seem to pick up on every la... Read more

Does it have enough slots to connect to this speaker set?

I first noticed this a few days ago, when I was playing a video in VLC player. At the time I figured the audio of the .avi was either encoded badly or VLC was acting up, so I dismissed it as an anomaly. However, I started noticing it more as I watched something else later that day, on files that usually play sound and video perfectly. I still thought it was VLC player though, so I restored all the default preferences, which didn't work, and I reinstalled and fully updated it but that didn't make a difference either.

Today though, I realised the problem isn't VLC player because I noticed it while playing back a video on YouTube, and now I can hear it just playing audio through Foobar, which I couldn't before.

I've tested playing the audio through my headphones and there is no fading in and out or jumps up in volume but there is when I play through the speakers, which makes me think it's down to the speakers. I also checked all the connections, cleaned and rewired them back up. Still, no difference. I checked whether I had any stupid audio effects on that might mess things up too, but I don't, so that can be ruled out too.

Anybody have a differential diagnosis?

I suspect that my speakers are sort of dying, and they are pretty old so it's not a surprise, although it is a pain in the ****. I accidentally had the speakers so loud the output audio distorted today too, which could have made it worse and led to it becoming more not... Read more

i can't get any sound except buzzing from trust 2.1 speakers that i have added to my advent 5302 laptop which uses windows vista, i am a complete novice and know nothing about pcs or laptops
 

A:speakers buzzing

How are you connecting the 2.1 speakers?
I assume they are "amplified speakers" that are AC powered, but laptops only usually have amplified (headphone) outputs, a mismatch in impedance.

But the problem is possibly that the 2.1 speakers are grounded via the mains, while the laptop is isolated via the power supply 2 core lead. Therefore a large amount of mains hum/buzz could be generated. No real easy cure for that.

Hi

I am using Logitech X-530 5.1 surround sound speakers.

The speakers suddenly developed a Buzzing sound.

You can only hear the buzzing sound when the volume is turned down all the way or turned up all the way.(Volume control on the speakers) The buzzing sound is not there in the range between the two settings just mentioned.
I have tried all the pc volume settings from off(0%) to all up (100%) with no effect to the buzzing sound

The buzzing sound is on all the speakers. It?d does not matter which one of the sound jacks(green, orange, black) I remove from their connecting on the back of the pc, the buzz remain. Even if the PC itself is switched off the buzz remain.
The sound connection is not from a external card but from the motherboard

The jacks are not dirty. The speakers are not close to any electrical sorce or cords. The speaker cords do not run close to other electrical cords.


Any sugestions would help


Regards
Burger

I then held the power button to turn it off, then turned it on again. When the computer was on again, I could hear a slight buzzing in my headphones. I tryed closing a few different programs to see if they were the problem, but the buzzing kept going. Once it got worse at exactly the same time firefox loaded a section of a techsupportforum thread. Even when I muted the computer volume, the buzzing was still there.

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

Every once in a while, seemingly at random (could be playing a game, browsing the internet, sometimes just after start-up) I will hear a short burst of buzzing (not static) from my speakers. This happens for a second or two, stops for a second or two, and then starts again. Also, at the same time the buzzing is happening, my whole computer will stutter....the mouse will jump, the display will stutter, the whole computer seems to quickly freeze and unfreeze for a second or two, then be fine, then stutter again. Basically it makes it unusable.
The only "cure" Ive found so far is to just restart the computer, and it usually goes away.

Hello Shadow and welcome to Seven Forums.

Is it possible the speaker(s) got damaged/torn? If the speakers are physically OK I'd check to make sure you have the latest Realtek driver installed. Open device manager and see which version of the Realtek HD Audio Manager you have. It should say something like PCIe GBE Family or FE Family. Then use the Realtek download site to get the latest driver. While in device manager you could also open all the other + signs to see if any other devices need updating. Please post back if this helps.

New Inspiron 17 7779 2-in-1 with combined audio port and Waves MaxxAudio
Logitech Z130 powered external speakers.
I have noticed, if I have external speakers connected and playing music, the sound works fine except for the volume fading in and out.
But a situation has developed where if the music stops or I pause it or shutdown the player, the speakers will start producing a loud static type sound about 30% if the time.  It sounds like what might happen if a speaker was being plugged in but not yet completely seated.
Muting the sound does not cause this.
It is very annoying and means I cannot leave the system playing music if I go out of the room.
Since I have been checking the sound fading situation, I have the latest drivers.  When I plug the speakers in the popup appears and I select medium external speakers.  No problems with this part of the operation.
This could be related to just these particular speakers but I have no other wired external speakers to test.  Limited testing with headsets does not appear to exhibit the problem, but of course, they are not powered...
I am thinking, the utility which sets up the combined audio port for different devices is somehow loosing contact with the plugged in device and allowing those connections to be changed.  Resuming the music stops the noise immediately it does not reoccur during play.
If I am correct, this would appear to be a driver of whatever sets up the combined audio port..

Try plugging the charger into a different outlet or, if it's on a surge protector, plug that into a different outlet. It might be that the outlet you have it plugged into isn't properly grounded.

Also try plugging the speaker power source into different outlets. You might have to try a few different combinations.

I recently purchased a new laptop, an HP Pavilion dv7-4083cl. It was everything I needed for under a grand and so far I am very satisfied with it.

One of the features I was excited about was the new 'Beats Audio' sound system that came standard with it. Unfortunately, it has given me the most problems.

Now I do not know if it is the sound card or rattling within the laptop, but every time I play video or song (or really any type of sound) at higher volume levels, the right side of my laptop buzzes, or rattles. It seems like it is only buzzing when higher notes are being played through the speaker. To sum it all up, it is extremely annoying and I can not enjoy videos or music.

It sometimes helps when I grab the right side of my laptop, which is the reason why I think there is some rattling going on and it may be a hardware issue, but it is still an issue I want to address.

I am taking all the steps I can before I have to eventually get on the phone with HP so ANY help will be greatly appreciated!

Finally, I have already reinstalled my sound card drivers and some following specs for my laptop are below:
Microprocessor Intel Core i5-450M processor 2.40GHz with Turbo Boost Technology up to 2.66 GHz Memory 4GB DDR3 System Memory (2 DIMM)
Memory Max 8GB
Video Graphics ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 s
Video Memory switchable graphics
Hard Drive 500GB (7200RPM)

My external speakers, which worked correctly on my previous laptop, now make a constant buzzing noise with my Elitebook. When testing the sound, the playback sound comes through, but the buzzing is still there, and the sound is quieter than when played through teh laptops internal speakers. Other headphones work just fine when plugged into the laptop. Thinking this was a power loop issue, I plugged the speakers in question into different outlets, but no luck. I also checked that the speakers still work, using my phone, and they worked properly with that device. My husband thinks that perhaps the connection between these particular speakers and this particular Elitebook just happens to be problematic. What else can we test??? P.S. This Elitebook is a refurbished machne. Maybe it's a little beat up internally?

Hello,
I have a Dell Latitude D820 laptop, which I have connected to my Logitech external speakers (two speakers and a control box with a base below). I have buzzing coming from the speakers, which through investigation I have noticed is caused by my laptop's charger (when charger is unplugged from computer the buzzing stops).
I know where the problem is coming from, but no idea how to fix it. Please hlep

Thanks a lot,
Matt

The problem is more than likely due to an interference caused by the current running through the charger.

Make sure the cable for the speakers and and the cable for the charger do not come in contact.

When they do, its called current induction (or an induced current) meaning you hear a buzzing around the same frequency as the current.

Also, try plugging the charger in to a different power point.

Hello,my dell xps 13 has an issue where every few days the speakers stop playing clear sound and begin to crackle.  If I reinstall the audio driver it fixes the issue...for another few days.  Suggestions?

A:Dell xps 13 speakers crackle every few days, audio driver install fixes

Are you checking the version of the drivers you are installing.  It almost sounds like you install earlier drivers and the Dell utility will reinstall the latest?
do you have the version numbers of the Realtek drivers?
Are you using any enhancements or other changes to the Default settings?

Presently I have to use onboard sound card to have audio through HDMI output from video card. The external sound card installed is Xonar DG and it comes with SPDIF output header to be interfaced with video card. But I do not see no such header on the video card. I wonder what video card has such an interface header.

So, I bought a new graphics card after my old one died on me. I successfully installed the new one - XFX ATI Radeon 5670 - and ever since it was done, my speakers no longer work and I can't figure out why? Any thoughts on if there is a simple way to resolve this would be helpful...thanks
 

A:Speakers not working after install of graphics card

Verify the default audio output device. The new video card most likely has HDMI output, which means it also has an audio chipset for supply audio over HDMI. During the driver install, the default audio output device was likely changed from your sound card/audio chipset, to the new HDMI audio output device. Simply change it back.

Hi, I'm having a problem. I've tried everything I know of or could find in a couple days of searching.

Since installing a new power supply & video card, my PC is having frequent slowdowns. The mouse will freeze for a few seconds and then teleport across the screen, typing text (like this post) will have occasional freezes and then catch up, etc. In online gaming (City of Heroes) the video will stutter. Also, the sound stutters, both in the game and when playing system sounds and MP3s. Ingame, the sound and video both stutter at the same time.

My first thought was heat, so I installed a program called RivaTuner to let me see the video card temperature. It hovers around 36-37 degrees celsius when web browsing, and has risen as high as 44 degrees while gaming. I haven't gamed for more than two consecutive hours yet, so it may go even higher. That said, the fans seem to be doing a good job of removing the heat, and the problems are about the same regardless of temperature. According to what I've read, for a video card anything under 60 degrees is good.

I opened the device manager and uninstalled the old video card driver. There were no hardware conflicts and DMA was not disabled. DirectX is updated to 9.0.

Drivers: the new video card came with a CD that installed nv4_disp.dll, which Windows XP says is unsigned. On the off chance the card didn't come with the latest driver, I downloaded the most recent one I could find from the MSI website, but it... Read more

Hello all, this is David!

I'm having a problem with my laptop speakers. When the PC arrived they were all magic and the sound was great but now there's a buzzing sound when the PC volume goes 50%+ or even lower. I can't really tell much more. I only happens with some songs, not all. And it's really annoying. This are supposed to be good speakers, but it happens everywhere, with or without ac adapter, home not home... I don't know what to do since I don't know very much about audio.

Thank you very much, I hope you can help me!

A:A high pitched buzzing noise on my PC speakers

Hello Shannon
My experience with noise in the speakers is that it usually is coming in through the speaker's power adapter, although defective audio cables may also cause the problem.

I would suggest... (in this order)
1. Swap your surge protector for a known good, and see if that resolves the noise.
2. Swap the audio cable (the one that attaches between your speakers and the audio out port on the computer).
3. Swap speakers for known good.
If none of these solve your issue, then it could be a bad sound card in your computer.

Hello, this is a problem I'm experincing ever since I've purchased the laptop. When the computer goes to sleep (or if I shut it down), the external speakers start to buzz like crazy. However, if I'm using the inbuilt speakers, there's not problem. Does anyone know what could be the cause of this? Computer:Lenovo ThinkPad T440pWindows 10 64 bit (with all Windows and Lenovo updates) Computer speakers:Harman / Kardon Soundsticks II (but it's the same with other speakers, too) Thanks!
