Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

I have an Intel PC that has suddenly picked up lots of static

Sounds. They are very high pitched when the computer powers up and decreases as it gets going; however, this seems to prevent the monitor from getting a signal so I end up manually restarting the system. I think these manual restarts with the power button are harming my system because it frequently will error. Says something is missing or whatever. That usually requirs still another manual restart. A friend said to get a big magnet and extract the static that way. Do you think that would work? Where would I get a magnet like that? Thanks.

    I mean the sound comes through the speakers, but is in sync with the computer's activity. I have removed the speakers, and moved them away from the hard drive, and tried each thing connected to my computer by moving it away, unplugging, etc. The sounds are still there.

    Tried uninstalling the audio drivers....no change in noises. Guess thehard drive is going out? Bummer....this desktop is only about 3 1/2years old.

    Thanks all! There was no change to the static sounds when I uninstalled the drivers. I guess the PC is going bad.

    Hi there
    Whatever you do, do not put any strong magnet next to a computer, this is because the magnetic field generated can wreak havoc with the platters that are in the hard drive.
    Listen closely to where the high pitch noise is coming from, be sure that its is coming from the computer and not the monitor.
    Post back if its definitely the computer.

Try reinstalling the audio drivers, go into device manager and uninstall the audio drivers, restart the PC, if the high pitched noise is still there before the computer re-installs the drivers, that will mean that there is feed back coming from somewhere, if there is no high pitched noise after this you know it was a bad sound driver.

Good luck and post back with the results please.

PS make sure the audio jack is pushed in properly too!!

Forget the magnet. Noises like the ones you describe are usually because of a few things: 1) the hard drive is going bad, 2) a fan going bad, or 3) the CD drive is making noise. I'd like to know what the error message reads. And yes, you are correct that restarting the computer with the power button will sooner or later harm your computer.

This is not the power supply. HDMI has several versions. Cables can be mismatched to the version. HDMI also has a very sensitive input and can pick up any outside interference if you have long cables.

High pitch noise from speakers


Hello there!
Sometimes High pitching its just that, static on the area, like if you are near a microwave, or near other electronic equipments, but, if the skreetching sound keep going or even if you do nothing it could be a line inside the sound card, or you need to clean the volume botton with special electrical cleaner. other that these, its contacts, or bad cap for the volume board inside.
Good Luck!

Computer beeps every 30 seconds


It is car brakes. Turn that game off.

OH, I'M JUST KIDDING!

BIOS speaker is broken, and you hear high pitched beeps?
Hmmmmm,..........

CPU temperature in normal............
What is the CPU, and what is the temp? Hey, I gotta know so we are on the same page here, lol!

Me?
Those repeated high pitch BIOS Beep Codes indicate a CPU problem.
I would remove the Heatsink/Fan combo, and replace the Thermal Paste.
(Following Anti-Static Precautions, and cleaning the CPU, and Heatsink, of course)

Also make sure the Heatsink is sitting flat.
Yes, I know what you stated about Speecy, and Core Temp, but I would try it anyway.

Still no?
CPU is sounding Taps, and telling you goodbye.

Hi, Meens here In my Acer Aspire 5920 Vista home preimum getting weird sound frm inbuild microphone after swtich on n the sounds stops after plugging headfons :(


The usual cause of microphone noise is caused by audio settings where the microphone gain may be turned up to high causing it to pick up noise from the computer or built in speakes. This can cause noise ranging from an odd hum to a high pitched squeal.

Check your sound setting first

Awful High-pitched Noise and Echo Feedback


Normal 0 Two things can cause static.
First, If you have your speakers turned up to high it will give you feedback causing distortion and static. I recommend using a headset when videoing.
Second reason is, if you are using a laptop and have added an external microphone between the two it will cause distortion and static.
Not knowing the configuration of your computer makes it harder to analyze the problem.
So hope this is of some help. Bud
