Question about HP Pavilion dv6-7010us Entertainment Laptop PC
It sounds as if someone is scrolling through radio stations on the speaker, no program running seems responsible seems to be rfi device interference and has been happening a couple days get a blue screen sometimes as well.
It's H.A.A.R.P. or aliens from space!........
Or maybe it's a bad Bluetooth/Wireless Module; in the laptop, lol!
Radio Frequency Interference or Electro Magnetic Interference, I can see from an outside source..........but Blue screen too?
Leads me to believe a bad hardware component.........

Go to Page 35. (Adobe Reader page number at Top. Actual manual page is 27)
Let's use the Athens 9485GN for an example.
HP part number - HP 655795-001,
See the gold plated contact pins on the bottom?
FOLLOWING Anti-Static Procedures, a pencil eraser is used to clean those contact pins. BOTH sides.
If using an eraser on the end of a pencil, and not a solid eraser; refrain from letting the metal band on the pencil, touch the gold plated contact pins.
Rub up and down, and back and forth; on all contact pins.
Doesn't take much pressure, nor rubbing, to make a clean contact surface.
(Doesn't take much 'corrosion', to make a bad contact surface)
Use air to remove the eraser dust. You can use a can of compressed air for computers, if available; or air pressure from your mouth will be sufficient.
Also clean the copper area (Holes) where the mounting screw/s go through.
Also clean the Terminals. Main and AL I
Try to clean the connectors on the wires that go to the Wireless/Bluetooth Adapter card, also.
(Wireless Antenna wires)
Reinstall Wireless/Bluetooth Module. Reconnect Wireless Antenna wires. (Properly)
If this does not resolve the issue, then suggest replace Wireless/Bluetooth Module.
Agree that I am 'going out on a limb' with these statements.
Could be something else. May be damage to the LCD Cable. (Video Cable)
Causes 'blue screen'.
Trying to correlate blue screen, and RFI/EMI interference; is a tough job; over the internet.
Laptop was in front of me, I would look for damage to the Wireless Antenna wires, first.
They loop under the right Hinge, and are just as prone to damage, as the Video/LCD Cable is.
(The Video Cable, or LCD Cable if you prefer; routes under the left Hinge)
No apparent signs of damage to the Wireless Antenna wires, (Visual inspection), I would remove the Wireless/Bluetooth Module, and clean contacts as stated above.
Blue screen occurs again, I would look into the Video Cable.
Video Cable connections are tight, then I would perform a continuity test on the Video Cable. Multimeter set to OHM's (1K), and check every wire in the Video Cable for continuity.
(Assistant for gently wiggling the cable, as Continuity test is performed. Checks for Broken/Stretched wires. Multimeter reading fluctuates when cable is gently wiggled, you know you have a broken wire)
A bad graphics chipset, will knock a laptop to it's knees. (Turns off)
Thinking is a bad Wireless/Bluetooth module, can do the same.
Knock the laptop to it's knees far enough, that no graphics are shown. There is also RFI/EMI interference, and this goes along with my thinking, that there are bad contact surfaces, or bad Wireless/Bluetooth Module.
Just my 2cents
[You open that laptop far enough to access the Wireless/Bluetooth Module, you better be wearing an ESD wrist strap; and have it's alligator clip attached to a good ground source.
Otherwise you will Static shock out the laptop, and have an expensive paperweight.
Average cost is $3 to $6 ]
