Buzzing sound in Battlefield 2 (PC Game)

In the PC game Battlefield 2, I can hear a slight distorted click sound whenever I navigate to a new menu, then when I begin connecting to a server, a buzzing sound starts. It's almost as loud as my volume setting, so it's definitely too annoying to ignore. A friend of mine has the same laptop, and he had the same problem. He "fixed" it by purchasing the $20.00 Audigy software from Creative, a solution I'd like to try to avoid. I already tried changing my Audio settings to Software, Hardware, Enable EAX, Low, Medium and High settings and I turned off my sound card acceleration, no luck. Other games all seem unaffected. Anyone know of anything else I can try other than giving in and purchasing some $20 audio software? THANK YOU!!!

    I tried all drivers from Dell's website already, sorry, I should have mentioned that. Dell even offers the "Creative Audigy Invitation" on their site, when you DL it and install, it has an UPGRADE button on the lower right sound manager gui taking you to Creative's website and asking for $19.99 to purchase the software.

Check to see if you have the latest audio driver from Dell, as it's sounds as there is a conflict with the game and the audio, click the link for dell drivers on your model. You may have inadvertantly loaded up windows sound drivers from a windows update, that would cause conflict as it's just a generic driver and not a correctly installed audio driver http://support.euro.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=uk&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INS_PNT_P4_9400&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

My router ( di 524 ) is blocking servers in Bettlefield Heroes, how can I fix it? I know the ip and port of that server.


1. Open a web browser like internet explorer or Netscape. Enter the ip address of your router in the address bar of your browser. In the picture above the address bar has http://www.google.com in it. Just replace all of that with the ip address of your router. By default the ip address should be set to 192.168.0.1.

2. You should see a box prompting you for your username and password. Enter your username and password now. By default the username is admin, and the password is blank. Click the Ok button to log in to your router.

3.Click the Advanced button near the top of the page. The menu on the left should change. In this new menu, click Virtual Server.

4. We will list a series of lines here that will show you exactly how to forward the ports you need to forward. Battlefield heroes requires you to forward the ports you entered above. Go ahead and enter the settings shown above into the Virtual Server menu and then click Apply.

fill up the blank boxes
Name: Battlefield
Private IP : ip address of pc where you play the battlefield
Protocol: both
Private port: ( provided by battlefield tech support)
Public port: ( provided by battlefield tech support)
schedule: always

then click appy

Nat help


Hi jman92592,


Here are some options with that router. Some online games and videoconferencing applications are incompatible with NAT. The WGR614 router is programmed to recognize some of these applications and to work properly with them, but there are other applications that may not function well. In some cases, one local PC can run the application properly if that PC’s IP address is entered as the default in the PORTS Menu. If one local PC acts as a game or videoconferencing host, enter its IP address as the default


To set up an additional computer to play games like Half Life, KALI or Quake III:
1.Click the button of an unused port in the table.
2.Select the game again from the Service Name list.
3.Change the beginning port number in the Start Port box. For these games, use the supplied number in the default listing and add +1 for each additional computer. For example, if you've already configured one computer to play Hexen II (using port 26900), the second computer's port number would be 26901, and the third computer would be 26902.
4.Type the same port number in the End Port box that you typed in the Start Port box.
5.Type the IP address of the additional computer in the Server IP Address box.
6.Click Apply



The WAN Setup options let you configure a DMZ server, change the MTU size and enable the router to respond to a Ping on the WAN port.

Connect Automatically, as Required

  • Normally, this option should be Enabled, so that an Internet connection will be made automatically, whenever Internet-bound traffic is detected. In locations where Internet access is billed by the minute, if this causes high connection costs, you can disable this setting.
  • If disabled, you must connect manually, using the sub-screen accessed from the Router Status menu "Show WAN Status" screen.

•Disable SPI Firewall

  • Normally, this option should be Enabled, so that your local network will be protected by the Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) firewall included in the WGR614. However, certain communications functions like VPN may require turning off the SPI feature.
Setting Up a Default DMZ Server

  • The default DMZ server feature is helpful when using some online games and videoconferencing applications that are incompatible with NAT. The router is programmed to recognize some of these applications and to work properly with them, but there are other applications that may not function well. In some cases, one local PC can run the application properly if that PC’s IP address is entered as the default DMZ server.
Note: DMZ servers pose a security risk. A computer designated as the default DMZ server loses much of the protection of the firewall, and is exposed to exploits from the Internet. If compromised, the DMZ server can be used to attack your network.

The WAN Setup menu, shown below lets you configure a Default DMZ Server.

  • To assign a computer or server to be a Default DMZ server, follow these steps:
1.Click WAN Setup link on the Advanced section of the main menu.
2.Type the IP address for that server. To remove the default DMZ server, replace the IP address numbers with all zeros.
3.Click Apply.

Good Luck and don't forget to leave a rating.

Thanks Mark
