Laptop sometimes makes a really loud buzzing noise - August 31st 2010, 06:30 PM

If I play a song or video too loudly my speakers seem to just give up and make a really loud buzzing noise for about a minute It then just stops and everything works fine again but it's obviously not a good sign :/ Why do you think it does this?

Happens sometimes i guese i think it's because the speakers can't handle the volume and it distortes it

Ah, that's what I was hoping I was a bit worried it meant it was going to break soon.

Does it do it when the music isn't loud?

I don't think it ever has, no. Earlier I was online looking for an mp3 of "All-American Rejects - Dirty Little Secret" I found one and it was a LOT louder than I thought it would be. That's what started it off a few hours ago.

You could try updating your sound drivers, might fix the problem.

As i previously said it might be a small hardware problem (not even a problem)

Hopefully drivers will fix this - update your drivers. If after updating your drivers, you're still having issues, there are a few more things you can try, but there is a distinct possibility that you could have blown something inside your PC, in which case you'd need to replace the soundcard (if it's not built in to the motherboard, which most likely it is), or the motherboard - typically if this is the case, it's not a bad idea to just get a new laptop.

One suggestion - have you tried muting the mic? I once had a laptop create a feedback loop between the onboard mic (which I had never noticed) and the speakers.
