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.

every time i turn on my pc i being to hear this high pitched screech, at first it is tolerable but as a couple of hours pass by it begins to drive me insane.

all i know is that its definitely not coming from my speakers, it cannot be anything to do with dust problems, since i got this new machine just a couple of days ago (custom built), and its not coming from my screen.

I've tried reconnecting everything in the machine but that did not work. any help/suggestions on this would be greatly appreciated thanks.

my system specs are:
Intel Core 2 Quad, Q8200 @ 2.33ghz
2Gb ddr2 ram
9600gt, 512mb
LG 22' widescreen
DVD Drive
MSI P43 Neo3 v1.1

I recently updated my Bios, and now I get this nasty high pitched whine from my PC speakers and Headphones.

However, it has some triggers.

If the computer isn't doing anything and I am not touching the mouse, the sound is barely audible. Yet, as soon as I move the mouse it comes in and out as the mouse moves.

Similarly, if I open an internet window of a program the whine gets persistent and will not go away until I close the web browser.

System spec's:
Asus P6T Deluxe V2
ATI Radeon 4870 X2 HD
Core i7 920
Windows Vista 64

I have had this computer for a while and no such problem until I updated the Bios in an effort to fix an issue with CoD:MW2 (Which I am beginning to regret buying)

I have had a Vostro 1400 with a C2D cpu for about 1.75 years now and just today I started to get a high pitched whine from the back left (right where the fan is).

I've tried using compressed air to clear out the fan, no luck. The Whine is from the back left right at the air vent. (Vostro 1400)

I disabled popup and popdown, disabled c4, tried HLT.. no luck anywhere. Whine is not just in Windows, as soon as cpu starts the Whine starts. Thoughts?

Vistra froze thanks to RMclock, but when I restarted I noticed the Whine did not begin until I chose Boot Windows Normally, b4 that nothing.. Whine was almost immediate after

Hey So here s the problem For a few weeks now the PC that my sister uses has been making a strange noise It has only PC loud, turned a pitched high on...? Makes when whine been making it for - seconds or so after being first turned on it s intermittent and I ve not gotten around to trying to work out what the problem PC Makes a loud, high pitched whine when turned on...? was until now The PC has a few CCFLs in it and I figured it was perhaps a faulty inverter However that is not the cause of the problem I ve also figured out that it s not any of the case fans or PC Makes a loud, high pitched whine when turned on...? the PSU though my only way of testing if it were the PSU or not was to power up the case PC Makes a loud, high pitched whine when turned on...? fans amp CCFLs without the rest of the system so perhaps the problem is only caused with a larger power drain furthermore as the problem is intermittent it may simply not be occurring now that I test the PSU on its own I think it can only be something on the motherboard besides my concerns about it still perhaps being the PSU the PC speaker though I fail to see why and it really doesn t sound like it s coming from a speaker the graphics card or the graphics card cooler which I can t power without the card being on so it s a bit hard to check Now the last time I turned it on the whine failed to stop I had to power down the PC That s really what prompted me to get on it and try to figure out what it is But I m at a loss Actually there is one thing one little clue that again points me to the PSU Once when I happened to be the one powering it up and it made the noise I saw one of the CCFLs flicker and cease to flicker in time with the noise stopping No other CCFLs were affected even those on the same PSU line as that one which is odd That s why I first thought it was a dodgy inverter actually As I write this I m becoming more suspicious of my PSU lol But hey you guys are the experts what do you think nbsp

Whenever I record through my line in socket on my sound card there is always a high pitched squeeling noise in the background. Ive used programs to remove it but that also reduces the quality of the sound.
I thought it might be the cooling fans causing it. that is the only thing i can think of other than the card is no good.

I have been reading around about other threads I didn't quite get an answer... ok I just got a brand new vaio I have been having various problems with it just small trying to work it out... just about everything is fixed except when I run a program I get a high pitched noise... I don't mean just any program I mean programs such as counterstrike, or sometimes a virus scan, I know it's the fan speeding up to keep cool, but is it supposed to make a high pitched noise?

A:CPU fan high pitched

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.

A:High pitched buzzing

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.

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.

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.

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!

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 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."

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.

The sound doesn't come out of the speakers, but out of the tower. I don't get the sound when I'm running anything else.

Hey everyone,

I started hearing a high pitched sound from the left side of my laptop.

This occurred when I connected my 2.4Ghz Logitech MX Performance mouse via the USB extender and my Logitech K810 Bluetooth Keyboard.

Before connecting these peripherals, everything was silent..I am totally stumped now..

Hi RunOrDie,

Does noise stops when you disconnect the both mouse and keyboard. If possible then directly connect them to the system without using the USB extender and let us know if the noise occurs.

Also, if it is whirring noise then it could be from fan and you should check for vents to clear any dirt blocking the fan.

Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.

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

I've read through the existing forums on this issue but can't seem to get anything to work! I love this product so much but this noise is really annoying and I can't live with it! Ill try just about anything now I'm that desperate! This is my 3rd faulty new laptop in less than a month! Thankyou all for your time!

Hey, I'm getting some sort of feedback from my speakers. It seems to only happen when there is no music/sound playing. Where does this come from? Is my sound card picking up feedback from moving parts inside the box? Is there a conflict with the onboard sound device (if so, how do I disable this or even check to see which one is "running the show")?

Things I did since the last time I can remember not hearing feedback:

Upgraded motherboard ASUS A7N8X Deluxe
Added wireless headphones (nice ones from Sony - about $180 - but not sure of the model)
Upgraded to WinXP Pro from 2000

Anyone out there have ANY ideas?

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 mother was given a pretty nice HP pavillion entertainment laptop from a friend, but when I plug it in, the blue light (where I plug it in) comes on, but when I hit the power button, there is a faint high pitched squeel. Any idea what the problem could be? It will not power on enough to run any tests or anything. It is fairly new and would be great for my mom considering it was free, and she's never had a computer before.

Hi there, hopefully someone can help. So far I have not been able to diagnose the problem, maybe someone out there can.

even at the lowest volumes, i have a high pitched whistle coming from my speakers. As you can probably imagine this is highly annoying.

so in my attempt to find out what could be the problem i have changed the following components.

Processor, Power supply, Sounds card, Speakers, Video Card, Memory, Operating system, Network card, Cable modem, DVD-RR, heyboard, mouse and Heatsink

so, apart from the HDD, I have changed everything inside this machine and its effectively another machine entirely and its still whistling.

Ive tried muting various inputs (and all of them) but the whistle remains. The only time it goes away is when i mute the speakers.

any ideas at all?

Hi, hopefully someone can help me as I've messed up my laptop somehow.

It's an Acer Travelmate 290 model CL51

Trying to make it run faster, I tried installing 1gb more of ram, clipping it in alongside the existing 256mb unit. However, when turning the computer on it does one of two things. 1 - emits a high pitched whining noise and does nothing else until the power supply is removed. Or 2 - starts up with no noise, but the screen stays completely blank.

When I fitted the RAM I followed all the instructions, touched metal before touching the chips, removed the battery and the power cord, placed it in carefully etc. I've also tried taking it out again, or running the laptop on only the new RAM, but all combinations lead to the same whiney noise or blank screen.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance

Recently I have encountered a problem with my computer where everytime I press the "Power" button, it makes a very high-pitched beeping noise,(very annoying). I opened my computer and everything seems to be running fine. The green power light is on, on the motherboard, my CPU and other fans are spinning fine.
- Also, I'm embarrassed to not know this but, is the graphics card fan supposed to be spinning all the time, or just when it gets to a certain degree point? If it is supposed to be spinning all the time, then it's not working.

*Is this a beep code, because I have not yet found something from American Megatrends that fits this description.

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...

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.

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.

Hi all,

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525. After having installed Windows 7 I was not able to record - microphone would not recognise my voice. Now, after having download the SigmaTel Device Drivers I can hear my voice but the background is crackly and the noises are high-pitched.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


A:Distorted microphone - crackling/high pitched

On most Dell's the Dell sound drivers need to be used for proper operation. Dell only supports Vista 32 bit and not Vista 64 bit or Windows 7 with drivers on this system. If you have Windows 7, try the Dell SigmaTel drives and see if they work OK. Drivers and Downloads

If this driver is what you have or doesn't work, the only suggestion is to look around for a different SigmaTel (now called IDT) that you can get to work.

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.

My GPU currently has been making a high pitched noise. It is only when changing the resolution and press Apply

It's usually the monitor that does that rather than gpu!!! It's nothing to worry about unless it gets really!!!!

Hi My PC GHz celeron Intel PERLX mobo WinXP high bad with ok, HD HD 3 sound-2 Computer pitched freezes Pro Nvidia GPU Usually HDDs only work Used as media center PC run by SageTV I have had this setup HDDs for years with no issue Then one day I went to the PC and it was frozen with a high pitched sound coming from the audio - the last image was still on the screen and Computer freezes with high pitched sound-2 HD ok, 3 HD bad there were no error codes - no keyboard response at all I had a set up of IDE boot HDD and CD drive IDE storage HDDs so i removed one of the storage HDDs and it became stable again So to troubleshoot I put in a new IDE cable on IDE added the drive but got the freezing again Replaced W PSU with another W PSU - still freezes Got a SATA HDD and left the one drive on IDE Ithought for sure this would fix it - but again it freezes BTW I confirmed all storage HDDs are fine on another computer No other hardware or software changes were made Why would it work fine with the drives storage and not with drives storage either PATA or SATA Any ideas nbsp

On the system startup my speakers suddenly produced a high pitched beeping noise I ve tried using (High Problem Pitched Sound Beep) a different set of speakers but the result was the same I m not sure what exactly is wrong but I had recently installed a more updated video driver and a Sound Problem (High Pitched Beep) wireless keyboard mouse I ve tried uninstalling both the video driver and the wireless set switching back to the old keyboard and mouse but there was still the beeping noise Surprisingly when I mute the master volume the beeping noise stops Also the noise applies only to the input speaker the speaker which has the cable connecting to the computer and not the other one I am able to listen to music using the other speaker but the volume is drastically lowered My Sound Problem (High Pitched Beep) guess was that there was something interfering such as the wireless mouse and keyboard with the sound card but since I have uninstalled them now using again because it is obviously not the problem and there were no changes I have no idea what could possibly be wrong Is there a solution to this problem Help will be gladly appreciated nbsp

Hi all,

Looked over some older threads here after searching for "high-pitched whine", but didn't find anything that addressed exactly what I'm experiencing.

I am hearing a high pitched whine which sounds like it's coming from the tower (or maybe the monitor?) The strange thing is, I ONLY hear this whining when an application is maximized.

If I minimize my Opera window, so it only shows on the task bar, the noise stops. When I maximize the window so I can continue typing this, the whine immediately starts up again. Weird...

It could be the monitor and it only does it when the screen is bright. I've seen that with a few CRT monitors before.

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.


A:Sound coming from speakers is very high pitched

The computer specs in your profile only show a laptop computer. I have never seen a laptop with audio jacks front and back. Can you please clarify?

There is a high pitched sound when the volume is turned up or when the laptop is being closed. When the volume is muted there is no noise at all.

I have an Asus P4S8X motherboard, Pentium 4 2.53 ghz, Enermax EG465P-VE(FM) 431W power, Lan-li Alum. case, & Kingston 512MB KVR333X64C25/512.

I put everything in with the first MB, applied power, and got a high pitched whine from the power supply. Did all kinds of diagnostics, sent the MB back.

New MB arrived, same thing. Called ASUS. (What's up with those support hours - and what happened to toll free???)

ASUS said to assemble outside of the case, so I did - stripped to CPU, FAN, PowerSupply & Video Card. Now, I apply power and.... NOTHING! The power supply fan doesn't even jiggle.

With the EnerMax, does anybody know how to ensure the unit is grounded properly? Could this be the trouble? The only think I have connected is the long cable to the MB & the 12V. Shouldn't this be enough?

Well I only really notice it at night and when things are really quiet,

Its a very high frequency pitch comming from the tower....

The computer is about 4 years old....its been happening for a while now,

Any ideas whats causing it or how to stop it???


A:Really high pitched noise comming out of my computer....

take the side off and see if you can locate where it is coming from,usually a fan
check they are clear of dust
if it's hard to isolate where it is coming from a drinking straw placed next to it will help carry the sound to your ear
