High pitched noise coming from comp and no use of monitor, keyboard, or mouse

Q: High pitched noise coming from comp and no use of monitor, keyboard, or mouse

I recently got my net back on. I did all suggested driver updates. After installing a game and turning off the comp, when I went to turn it on all I got was a high pitched noise from inside the comp along with no use of my monitor mouse or keyboard. I took the video cards out cleaned them and put them back in, Comp ran fine till I put the game back on the comp. I am now in the same position of high pitched noise along with no keyboard, mouse or monitor.
I have a
Dell 630i quad core
GeForce 8800GT x 2
OS- Windows XP

I have removed each of the video cards and tried running the comp, but still not working same high pitched noise.

Please help!! I want my comp back in working order

Personally, I would call Dell on this one. Who knows, maybe you're still under warranty and you'll get a free motherboard replacement.

Recently my laptop had a BSOD after which it restardted my computer, it then kept asking for me to insert a boot disc. I turned it off because I had things to do and really didn't want to worry about my computer, later when I turned it on windows started up with no problem at all. However my computer has started emitting a high pitched sound that is very annoying. This may be a hardware question but the sound only started after the BSOD error.

My computer is a Acer Asipre 5940G is that is any help.

Any help with this matter would be wonderful.

Hello folks.

I have a high pitched noise coming from my power supply. It happened recently, and it's been lightning around here to boot. It's on a surge protector, but obviously we know that doesn't mean it can't still be hit.

Anyways, I can hear it fine but my dad can't. Before the tumor jokes start, my little sister can hear it as well, so evidently we both have tumors. I ended up unplugging everything from the power supply, including the motherboard, and turned the power supply on and off, and the noise only started when the power supply was turned on.

It still works, but it annoys the heck out of me. Obviously I want to replace it but I'm not sure if I can get an RMA. Is there any risk running it like this?

I was over at a friends tonight and she has an hp I5 laptop...not sure of the model# and it is getting a high pitch noise that can be heard from as far as about 6 feet away. This is a consistant and steady noise. This just started today. It is running hotter than normal from what she said. The laptop is about 2 yrs old.

I checked one of the fans and I felt some air coming out, and I could hear the fan running, but I had a hard time identifying where the noise is coming from...

What components would most likely be the cause. Certainly the fan, I would think, but what else could it be? I won't risk opening up the case, but is there any additional troubleshooting I should try?

Sounds like a bad fan, higher heat and squealing sound. also check to see if a disk has been left in the optical drive.

Firstly, apologies for the vague thread title, I couldn't think of how else to describe it

Right, when the monitor (rather old 16" Sharp LCD monitor) is showing the colour white (such as a Google search results page, GMail inbox etc.) I can hear a rather audible high pitched buzzing sound, no matter what brightness the screen is on. Any ideas as to why? I'm sure there is a scientific/electronic reason as to why, it's just I'm not sure what that reason is

A:Monitor makes a high pitched noise when showing white.

I have read that the condition can be caused by low quality capacitors.
And I understand the fix (workaround) is to lower the refresh rate as low as it will go.

Also could be the power inverter for the backlight (same reason: cheapness).
Some people say you can epoxy the edges of the inverter to fix this. Not advisable IMHO - just replace it.

And if the backlight is fluorescent, then you could be hearing that common buzz that fluorescent lights make when they are close to burning out.

I've just gotten a new laptop and once its loaded Windows it makes a high pitched undulating noise, kind of like wooooo-ooooooo-woooooo-ooooooo. Its like having tinnitus!! It's seriously annoying, especially as I use a computer a lot. It's constant and doesn't change if its running off battery or mains (as i'd read some do).

Hi there, I recently bought a Lenovo Yoga 3 14 with Core i7-5500U and I feel like there might be a problem with the chip because the fan is nearly constantly on and it is REALLY loud, and so far ive only done basic tasks like web browsing and document editing.
Also another unrelated problem I have is that 2-finger-tap right click isnt working on the touchpad despite the option in the settings being ticked.
Please help, I've been really dissappointed in this laptop because of these things and I'm sure it's awesome when it works properly

My laptop has been making a high-pitched sound nonstop as long as the laptop is on. It's inaudible if there is other background noise (from a TV or music) but in a quiet place like the library, the noise drives me up the wall. Is there anything I can do about this? It seems to be coming from the left side of the keyboard. I've only had this laptop for two months.

I just purchased a Dell 2330 All-In-One, and the computer is emitting a high-pitched noise. It's extremely annoying. Does anybody know how to fix this problem? 

A:2330 All-in-One High-pitched noise.

Can you provide some additional information?  
1.  Does your system make the noise as soon as the system is turned on?  Is the system touching something that is making a vibration?
2.  Is a disc in the optical drive?  If so, does removing it make the sound go away?
3.  Can you describe where the sound is coming from?
4.  Do you recall what, if anything, you were doing when the sound began?  For example installing any new software (especially third-party software) or did you connect any new hardware to the 2330.
5.  Have you updated your software?  Have you restarted your system?
6.  Was the system purchased directly from Dell or someplace like Best Buy?  
If you're unable to isolate where the noise is coming from, I'd recommend taking the system to an authorized service provider.  If you're not comfortable tinkering with opening the system (who'd want to do that on a newly purchased computer?), take it to a service provider.  If it's newly purchased from Dell or authorized seller... you're covered under the hardware warranty.  Please provide more info if you can.  Without more information, no one can make an informed recommendation how to fix "noise."

My PC (Win XP, HP Pavillon Desktop a1340n) has been repaired several times, and the last time I got it back, I plugged the speakers to the sound card (not onboard sound) and there's a high-pitched noise coming from the speakers.

Hi Karl Sindre Baath Engelstad,
I am sorry about the frustration. I suggest that you flash BIOS from the following link:
Note: While flashing BIOS connect the Ac adapter and make sure the battery has minimum 15% charge as this needs uninterrupted power supply. Do not use the system till it restarts and comes up to the desktop.
In case issue persists even after flashing BIOS to the latest version, kindly send me a private message with the system service tag. Click on my name and click Start Conversation to send me a private message.

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.

I've noticed a high pitched whining noise that sounds like it is coming from the power supply/GPU, both being less than a month old. The weird thing is, it only makes the noise when I am playing a game, for instance if I tab out, the noise will stop and if I tab in it will start again. I've mainly noticed this on a game called League of Legends which doesn't have high requirements anyways. It's just annoying me and I'd like to know if there is a fix. I'll list some components below, ask if anymore are required.

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

Has anyone got BIOS update for this well known Intel CPU problem?

I talked to my local ASP and he always say he will help and he will get this patch. He says, yes next week, then next week then next week..... funny. Authorized "professional" Toshiba service partner.

There is no BIOS update for this problem for 6 month now @ toshiba BIOS download page.

So what should I do if ASP can't help and Toshiba also can not release any BIOS patch for this annoying sound error.

(Please do not close this thread because this is an existing problem!)

I have a PC windows XP Home.

My sound jack at the back of my computer doesnt work at all. My jack in the front of the computer changes all the sound that comes from the speakers and makes it very high pitched.

Please help me fix if not both jacks, then just one. I really need the sound.

I hear a really high pitched sound coming from my computer, specifically my PSU.
I can only hear it from certain angles, but it is really annoying after a long time of putting up with it. How do i diagnose where the sound is coming from and if it's the capacitor or the fan?

The sound goes away when the PC is off.

Any help would be appreciated.

A:Annoying high pitched sound coming from my pc?

This sort of high pitched noise is usually a vibrating coil. Unfortunately coils (aka inductors) are common components on motherboards, graphics cards and PSUs.

Are you 100% sure it's coming from the PSU ? If so there's not much you can do except try to ignore it or get another PSU.

It could also be a worn fan bearing. Try to locate it exactly.

Do you have a different set of speakers, or even headphones that you could try in the same port that the speakers making the noise are plugged into? I would check this first. Next, do you have a wireless router, or cordless phone sitting close to your speakers? If so, try moving those further away.

What PSU do your have?

450watts is right on the edge to power such a card - and not exactly recommended.

A low-quality PSU will have problems.

I just recived a repacement laptop from Lenovo a few weeks ago. I now have a Ideapad 700-15ISK. I love everything about it, well, exept for a high pitched noise that continues to come out of the laptop whenever it is on. I've made a video with the audio levels boosted for those who would like to hear below. If that doesn't work, here's the YouTube Video. I dont think its tied to the fan, but I can't really tell for sure. It is most noticably coming from the very right side of the computer (looking at it with the screen open, front view). I'd really hate to return this computer, as I've had my fair share of frustration with Lenovo.Any help would be apreciated.Thanks.

My laptop is 6 year-old (Hp pavillion zt3019ea) and for few weeks now, has started to make this high pitched noise (like a mosquito!) only when connected to the charger.
I replaced the charger with a new one.Same thing. Then that new charger (8 days-old) died yesterday.

I thought I needed to get a new battery but at the same time is it really worth it for a 6 year-old laptop? (the hard drive has been replaced in March)

Thanks for your help!

Hi This morning I removed my main HDD to plug it into another PC and transfer some files I have now installed it back in the original PC but it will no longer boot There is only a loud high-pitched sound coming from the PC I have cleaned the inside thoroughly with compressed air If I remove the graphics card the sound is no longer emitted I have had a lot of trouble recently with my computer most notably with my monitor continuous noise. high-pitched power loud on boot up No w/ remaining completely white upon startup Turning the monitor on No boot on power up w/ loud continuous high-pitched noise. off about ten times tends to fix the problem and the monitor will then display normally until the next shutdown startup No boot on power up w/ loud continuous high-pitched noise. I tried the monitor on the second computer and the same thing happened with a white screen that would fix itself after being turned on off repeatedly My main concern at the moment is the loud whining from No boot on power up w/ loud continuous high-pitched noise. my first computer on startup I am not sure where to begin troubleshooting any further does this sound like I need to replace my graphics card PSU or something else PSU HEC- TD-PTE Graphics GeForce GT Any help would be greatly appreciated nbsp

A:No boot on power up w/ loud continuous high-pitched noise.

First, the hard drive. Sounds as if you have messed up the Master Boot Record by connecting it to another PC. This can be fixed by I need to know the OS.

Secondly it also sounds as if your graphics card has failed or the fan on it is making the noise which will need to be replaced.

Finally as your monitor is producing the same fault on another PC then it needs to be replaced.

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!!

Thats easy to determine if the speakers are causing it or the hard drive is generating the noise, power off the speakers and see if the hard drive's noise goes away.

Hi, I just got this monitor the other day. It's a great monitor and all... when it's on. When it's off or in standby mode, there is a really high pitched ringing coming from inside... only noticeable if the room is quiet, which in most cases it is (night time, can't sleep!)

Anywho, it only happens if the monitor's power cord is plugged in... if I unplug it, the ringing stops within 5 seconds, or if I turn it on, it stops. Either way... the ringing sounds like if you left your TV on... and you know it's on so you turn it off, quite annoying yes.

Anyone know of a solution that might be of help to me? I really like the monitor aside from this.. I'm even resorting to just leaving it unplugged unless I'm using it, so that it won't ring...

If we shut the monitor off and back on, the sound goes away for a minute or so. We've moved the laptop away from the monitor, in case it was some sort of interference noise, but that didn't help.

Is her monitor going bad? Something else going on here?

A:Satellite A500-14c: high pitch noise coming from speakers?


I know such noise but in my case it was created only by an AC adaptor.

The AC adaptor cable was damage (broken) and therefore such noise has appeared.
But it was really, really low and I could not hear it always? just sometimes an mostly just for a short time?

Anyway, I have tested another AC adaptor and could detect the reason for that?

I don?t know why this sound comes from speakers but in most cases such issues are related to the hardware and should be checked by a technician.

From time to time, mostly after my laptop comes out of sleep, my mouse (Microsoft Wireless Mouse 5000) acts weird. Notably, double-clicking a file on the desktop (left button) brings up the properties menu. In fact, it appears that the system thinks that the alt-key on my usb keyboard is pressed even though it is not. This bug is present in different brands of usb keyboards I tested. Quickly cycling through ctrl-winkey-alt buttons seems to clear the registered alt-key. Any suggestions to correct this behavior? Could the language bar be the culprit? Thanks.

The different noises vary, sometimes its just annoying, others you cant stand to be in the same room with the PC.

Its a constant tone....

the PC has been getting pretty old, but still... if you need any more specific system specs, please ask. Please reply someone!!

sounds like a dying fan.

might possibly also be a dying power supply, but if its really loud, id say its the fan...

you might try opening it, and using a small peice of tubing as a stethascope, check the entire pc for where the noise is coming from.

probably the cpu fan, they seem to have a hard knock life.

The smaller the fan you have, the higher its pitch.

And a high RPM 80mm fan is pretty high pitched.

The 40mm ones are just unbearable, as I found out today. But I can't remove it as its in my new 24port switch.

Hi, I'm getting a ridiculously annoying high pitched buzzing coming from my speakers. The buzzing seems to mimic how hard the hard drive is working at the moment. I'm prety sure its not the speakers because i get the same sound if i plug headphones into the slot, but I'm pretty sure its not the built in sound card either because I still get the buzz (although not as loud but still annoyingly audible) from my other USB sound card.

I use an MSI K7N2g Nforce 2, and my harddrive is a 160gb hitachi (cant remember exact modeL)

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Sounds like the speakers may need to be shielded or you need a new set of speakers. Could be the EMF noise is originating from inside the PC as well if the sound card components are not shielded well enough.

A:High Pitched whir from rig

Hi ghostops117 and welcome to W7 Forums

The source of the noise is likely to be coming from a fan or from a floppy/optical/HDD drive. Unplug your machine (always do this when connecting/disconnecting internal cables) and disconnect all drives and fans (except for the CPU fan). If you have a graphics card and have also got on-board graphics, temporarily remove the card and use on-board instead. With everything disconnected, power back up. Don't worry about missing OS system prompts. If the noise is no longer present, reconnect one component at a time and retest. If the noise returns, verify by disconnecting the last component connected and test again.

Please let us know your results.

I have an Advent 7066M laptop running Windows XP. If I connect headphones or speakers to it and try to play audio or video, the sound is too high pitched. Does anyone know what I can do to correct that?


A:Audio Is Too High Pitched

Try rolling back the sound driver from within Device Manager, joebeaven. If this is not an option, uninstall the sound driver and reboot. If the driver is not automatically reinstalled after reboot: "Drivers can be installed from the c:\applications\drivers folder and utilities from the c:\applications\tools folder." This info was taken from here.If your issue started recently, there may have been some form of corruption that has occurred.

My dad was the last one to use the computer and now he's gone out so I don't know if this problem was there when he was on it, although he didn't say anything to me.

But now that I'm on it, I've noticed the sound output sounds different. When I loaded Windows, the traditional Windows login tune played...but it was all high. It's not the volume settings, it's actually a higher sound, and this is actually affecting every single piece of sound coming out of the speakers on the monitor.

I tried playing a song and the guy's voice is all messed up - high-pitched because of this.

I don't know why it's done this or how to solve it. If anyone can help I would be very happy! Thank you in advance!

A:Huh? My sound is all...different and high-pitched...

That's actually kind of hard to say what that might be. Believe it or not I've had my computer do the same thing, and after doing a spyware/viral scan, it straightened out. So it could be one of many things....just some insight.

I'm sure the more seasoned folks can help you more than I can, but I was just giving some insight.

Hello If anybody can shed some insight it would be most welcomed I ve encountered a few things in my computer life but this one well please read My system first off P GHz PE P P W Power Supply some mid size copper fan sitting on cpu ATI x pitched High sound AIW Bluetooth keyboard mouse My cpu used to cook at high temperatures that High pitched sound s prescott for you Went to the store got a case fan compressed air and a new hd Cleaned it up mounted fan and installed hd Didn t really notice it High pitched sound at first but then started to hear this high pitched sound Rebooted same thing Finally can t take it anymore opened the case and it seems to be eminating from near the cpu It usually happens when it s taxed but the kicker is it always happens when i move the mouse It sounds like crickets almost Anybody have any ideas I cannot see it being the new hard drive it is not in use yet original and new are SATA if it s relevant Thanks in advance Richard nbsp

A:High pitched sound

Thats an odd one, I would say it was the HSF (heat sink fan) for your CPU but since it happens when you move your mouse, it must be either the mouse or the CPU itself... Try using a different type of mouse (ie PS2 or USB). If this doesnt solve the problem, check to see if everything is plugged in properly (actually you should do that before mouse)... And if that doesnt work, see if you can swap your CPU over with another one to see if this is the problem.

Every once in a while, my pc speakers make a high pitched ringing sound, and then the system freezes up and becomes unresponsive. I'm not sure if it's related, but I just recently reformatted my whole system. It didn't crash like this prior to the reformatting. I was thinking it might be a heat problem or maybe my drivers, but I don't know, so I hope someone else does. Thanks for your time.

My operating system is Win/95b. I get a high pitched squealing staticy sound over everything but CD player. I have an OPTi plug n play audio device. I checked system and it says devices are working properly. It seems the problem didn't start until I installed Win optimizer. So I uninstalled it and re-booted but I still have the same problem. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

My T530 laptop has suddenly developed a high pitched whine after using it a few years. Using JGFFTViewer on my iPhone shows that there are peaks at 8khz and 15-17khz. The 15-17khz frequencies are most annoying as they are right at the edge of my hearing. Plugging in a mouse or keyboard into any of the USB 2.0 ports makes the sound louder. Moving both to USB 3.0 reduces the whine. Even without the mouse and keyboard the whine is still audible. I've recently upgraded my bios to 2.67. Could that have caused the issue? I've tried disabling power management in the bios with little to no difference. 

A:T530 High Pitched Whine

I found another app SpectrumView that does a better job and attached a screen shot: Notice the peak at 16khz that approaches the level of the office air conditioning. There is also a peak around 20khz but that is probably inaudible to the human ear.
