HP/Compaq :: Dv5t Sound Randomly Make A Static Boom Noise
Feb 15, 2009
if anyone has had sound issues with their DV5? I have the current bios F13 and have un-installed and reinstalled sound drivers and such. What is happening is the sound will randomly make a static boom noise and then go away and then do it again.. i have checked my external speaks and have even replaced them thinking it was them.. it is not since it is happening with my onboard speakers as well. So this static boom sound is a constant annoyance along with music sounding rather off/staticy..
So my dv5t has Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit installed a while back and I've noticed that there's a lot of static, popping, crackling noises that randomly occurs during playback. I have the latest audio driver, IDT 6.10.6242.0. There's no power management turned on and I don't know what else to do.
I just got an HP Pavillion dv9000 laptop a few days ago and everything is great, except for this static noise coming from the speaker. It kind of sounds like when you have your TV on a blank screen, but you have the volume as high as it goes. Every now and then there's a little pop or crack sound too. Some important things to note:
- It was a refurb
- The noise immediately stops when the volume is muted
- All drivers are up to date
- If I go into the volume settings, I can slide the volume all the way over to the right side, and the noise stops, but any amount of volume going through the left side and the noise is back
- The noise is the same at any volume level
- If I plug in headphones, there is no noise through the headphones, it only happens on the speakers
At first I thought it wasn't anything big, just a driver update or just a matter of breaking the laptop in, but now after a few days it's starting to get annoying. I don't want to leave the sound on mute all the time, and even when I am listening to audio I can still hear this noise.
For the Yoga 2 Pro owners out there, how much static do you have in your headphone jack? I am loving everything about this laptop except for some noticeable static at low volumes and some backlight bleeding at the bottom of the screen. I have tried two different headsets, my Senheiser HD 280 Pros and my Etymotic earbuds.
I am curious how everyone elses behaves. If this is normal I can probably live with it. If I am the only one, I may get it replaced. Build date 11/06/2013, purchased from Lenovo's website.
I received my Inspiron 7537 1080 3 weeks ago. Everything works perfectly except the static noise after connecting headphones. Tried different headphones,latest drivers nothing worked. Dell has sent an engineer to look at the problem. He replaced entire motherboard but the noise is still there. I tried Bluetooth headphones and external sound card but this hissing noise is always there in the background. I am thinking about getting another one after refund but not sure if this static noise is present in all models or was this only one off.
I have a new M3800 Precision Workstation that is making a really annoying sound when it is plugged into power and when the SSD is being accessed, mostly when it is being accessed randomly such as search, VM running, or just random file access test from benchmarking software. The pitch of the scratchy sound varies with screen brightness.
I've made a video of it here [View:youtu.be/jbEkRDrPTdA:550:0]
I have been trying to get 5.1 sound with my laptop, i have heard people i think with other models that make microphone jack into a center/surround output, and other have said that its possible with hdmi but i have tried with latest drivers of HMDI that i got (184.108.40.206).
I have a new Lenovo Ultra Dock 170w and have power logitech speakers hooked up to the dock using the audio port. When the laptop is off or removed from the dock, I get a what sounds like static coming through my speakers fairly loud. I prevously had a T500 and a dock in the same configuration without this issue.
I have removed the dock power and still get the audio distortion. I have to completely remove all connected wires aside from audio before the noise go away. I am thinking there is a grounding issue with the audio jack on the Ultra Dock. Only happens with powered external speakers... I have tried with other speakers and get the same noise over them too.
I have had my HP HDX16 for almost a year, probably 10 months. I can still send it in for repairs because the warranty is still in place.
Recently the fan has started to make some funny noise and it sounds more like a grinding sound that is subtle but still noticable. I was thinking of sending it in for repair, but when I sent my computer in last time they formatted everything just to replace the screen when I told them not to, so I really would just see if I can repair the issue myself and save myself the trouble of having to reinstall and download everything again.
How easy will it be to take off the bottom to get to the fan? I already blew air into and that made it go from loud to subtle, but it seems like it might be grinding against something or hitting something. Sometime if I tap on the area to the top left of the power button it will stop it for a couple of minutes.
My 2 weeks old HP Mini 200-4220tu makes random static noises (ZZZZZTT sound) when i play music/watch youtube vids.. i have installed/reinstalled idt high def audio codec from the hp website but the problem still persists.. i already performed hard reset (as i have read from other posts here: remove battery and power for a few mins) to no avail.. the static sound wont go away ...
Recently my laptop starts to make a high frequency whining noise, almost constantly and rarely stopped.
I tried to locate the component which the noise was originated from, I can only figure out it's somewhere below the memory module, but there is no moving component there, so my biggest suspect is the fan, because if I put my ear to the back of the laptop, except the whining I also heard very minor "clicking" noise.
Another weird thing is, this noise only starts after Windows is loaded, not in BIOS or during booting, although the fan was running at those times.
I've recently purchased the Dell XPS 14 ultrabook and it is probably just about two months old now. Everything was so perfect until just yesterday the laptop started to make a quiet fast-paced clicking noise inside it. I don't know where it is coming from but all I know is that the noise is definitely inside the laptop. It starts usually about 2-3 minutes after turning the laptop on and then lasts for about 1-3 minutes. Is this normal? And is there a way to stop this noise? I know its just something little but I just think it's not normal to have this problem for such a new laptop.
I have a problem with my dell inspiron 5520 it sometimes randomly reboots ,screen flashes and makes weird audio noise and then screen goes black and laptop reboots like normal! What is wrong with my laptop.Because when it reboots all my work is gone!
I'm using a HP Pavilion 17 Notebook PC running on Windows 8 64bit. About a week ago, my sound is randomly disappearing and I have to restart my laptop each time. Then, the sound works like normal, but when I don't use my laptop for some time (while it is still on), and I start a movie or something, the sound doesn't work. When I click the sound bar on the bottem-right corner, there's no green bar indicating sound.I've tried reinstalling sound drivers and reselecting a standard sound device, but nothing seems to work.
I've recently bought an Acer Aspire 6930G and am overall very pleased with it.
However, in the few weeks since i've bought it there has been one concern I have had.
Whenever the laptop is unplugged from the mains, it starts to make a faint buzzing sound. The sound seems to come from the 'tube' near the subwoofer on the back (where the power socket is on one side, and the Kensington Lock is on the other side). The buzzing also only seems to be coming from the right side of the laptop above the number pad.
What is also strange is that i am able to stop the buzzing by tipping the laptop sideways or moving the screen. This seems to indicate that something might be vibrating, but again only when the power cord is unplugged?
Like i say, i don't think its enough to take the laptop back (unless somebody tells me differently), but i am concerned enough to ask on here if anyone with the same or similar laptop has any ideas as to why this might be happening.
For some reason when connecting to my UE Boom speakers, the sound volume is about 70% as loud as when playing from any of my other devices, such as my HTC One or my wifes Ipad. I have checked all the settings, volume is maxed out at 100%. I have reinstalled the latest drivers for both the bluetooth and the audio device:
A friend of mine is considering an HP DV6t laptop. He needs to know if he should spend the $19 for the OS disk or not. Can he make his own system restore disk when he gets the laptop? Is there a difference between the disk they provide or the one you mak in the backup (if available)?
My battery died a few months ago on my nc8430. It's not an oem batter, but was a third the price. When running on the battery power, the computer is very slow. I have to have NHC on MAX Performance to watch youtube @ low res, or even type without lag. Even with this there is lag on the system. With NHC set to Max Battery, the computer is nearly unusable. Now I've been using the computer for a while, at Max Battery, and AC power, with now problems. And if i plug in the power cable, but change nothing, the system runs at normal speed.
Can a battery cause this type of behavior? Should I return it?
I wanna switch from my factory hard drive to a 7200 500gb 3.0 gb/s WD hard drive. Will I notice a dramatic difference in the performance of my computer. Also, can I use recovery discs or my factory reformat dvd to make this new drive bootable?
I am getting quite scared about my hp dv5t its getting really hot. The cpu is always at 50-mostly around 65 degrees doing normal work. I keep it on a targus cooler sometimes, but when im on campus I can only use the bare desk. I have undervolted the computer and the gpu is fine always maxing out at around 60 degrees and the harddrive is always at like 40. How do I keep this cpu from getting so high? It makes the computer really hot. Anything like undervolting, or anything free would be a + point.
