Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook
I think I sent this out to one person a few minutes ago - I'm new to the site, and don't know if my question was posted visible to all...sorry if it's a repeat - here's the super annoying problem:
I have Vista on an hp Pavillion dv6000 - The built in speakers are buzzing & won't stop (even after reboot). It started when I was recording a song (using audacity) - a large low end feedback signal came through from my amp, and I unplugged the cable. The buzz just stayed - It's a loud CONSTANT electronic buzz (which makes me lean away from blown speaker?) - the only thing that seems to interrupt it momentarily is if I press on the metal 'screen' above the keyboard.
Please help me stop this awful sound. I hope it's not ruined - ack!
p.s. I have gone through most (I think all) the sound settings in the control panel, and nothing has seemed to work - willing to try whatever.....this buzz is killing me - hey, that was accidentally funny;) But for real - please tell me I didn't kill my computer....
Does it stop if you mute the system?
Find a pair of headphones and plug them into the laptop and see if the buzzing continues in the headphones. If it does, it's a driver problem. Uninstall Audacity (which I don't think works too well with Vista, unless they've released a new version) to see if the problem goes away. If the buzzing is only occuring on your laptop speakers, but not in the headphones, then you may have blown them by using the wrong impedance out of your amp...
I rather suspect it's an audio driver problem. What happens when you remove Audacity?
