Hp pav dv6000 - buzzing speakers

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!
thanks!

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....

    Thank you so much for responding, this is wonderful.



    When I plug in headphones, I don't hear the buzzing.

    I don't hear anything, not even playback - I tried playing a song from Windows Media Player library, and nothing emits from on board speakers or headphones...of course, the buzz still here:)

    When I plug the headphone into the jack, I do hear a slight electric sound so at least I know they're working.



    I just discovered the Microsoft ISATAP Adapter (don't know if that's associated) has a warning : "This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)" . The problem code value = 0000001F (if that means anything?).


    Next, I just uninstalled Audacity - I'm gonna reboot now, and log back on.



    I wonder if it is an impedence issue - the amp made an awful loud sound if the mic jack or the gain knob were adjusted/wiggled.

    If the amp impedence is wacked, is it or the computer speakers

    repairable?



    Thanks again, I will reply momentarily re: uninstall of Audacity.

    Hi, I'm back after rebooting, and the buzz is not killed:)

    btw, Last night I did a restore to a date previous to the buzzing - no change.

    So, does it seem like the impedence problem...what can I try next?

    Thank you again for your advice - thanx for being here!

    I have exactly the same thing.
    Using Audacity, as well, but I'm on Ubuntu.

    It seems to be a hardware problem.

    The problem isn't within any drivers and cannot be fixed by restoring. Your speaker is blown. If you have ever been in a car, where someone plays music very loudly, loud bass etc...The speaker then becomes loose within the speak mount. This is exactly what is happening within your computer. Underneath the plastic screening where your music comes out of, there are mini speakers. Whichever side you hear the buzzing coming from, it most likely occurs when a high pitch sound is playing in a song. The speaker needs to be replaced. Hopefully you have a warrenty. I am having the same issue, but I have been through this before and Luckily I got a warrenty this time... Hope this helps. But you should complain to HP about it and tell them you do not want to pay because they put lousy speakers in your computer. If the speakers aren't capeable of playing good music, they should put in the description...DONT PLAY MUSIC ON LAPTOP..haaa good luck though!

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?

How to get a download for a repair manual for A Acer Aspire v5-572p-6446


There may be one available as a block diagramme for a fee on a web site somewhere but that is not common.
Most manufacturer trained computer engineers know how motherboards work alongside the firmware and chosen software so there is no call for them.

Are 2002 Aztec computers compatible


I am assuming you are discussing the 2002 Pontiac Aztec, the early crossover with the rather distinctive look. I would assume that since they were made by the same manufacturer and they used the same parts that their computers should be compatible. I can't say so for certain as you haven't provided much information, but, unless one of the Aztec owner swapped out the original computer and replaced it with an updated device, the computers should be compatible.

If you are thinking of trying to swap computer chips, I would advise you to wait and let a professional do it at an independent shop. The reason I suggest this is simple, unless you know how to access the computer chip correctly, you risk accidentally ruining it. If you handle the replacement chip incorrectly it is entirely possible that for a stray static charge to ruin the chip by blowing out a trace. Also, if you damaged the socket from which the original chip was removed then it is possible that you will not be able to reinsert the new device without bending any leads on the bottom. If the leads are damaged, then the new computer won't work.

Even if the new computer chip and the original chip were already installed in installable cases (the way most desktop computer chips are installed), it is possible that when you removed the computer, you might have damaged the receiving socket which means that when you go to insert the new computer carrier it won't work correctly because a few or many of the pins on the bottom of the board won't sit correctly.
