How can I solve a problem on my pc wiith regards to it's hissing sound

In most cases it sounds like the fan is having trouble. Get a can of compressed air and clear out the air vents on the sides and back. It may spit out a ton of dust, and it should help improve the hissing sound. If it needs a better cleaning, you may need to remove the lower part of the casing.

How to fix sound problems in HP Elitebook 8460P

Hi Rolf. Hoping I can help you here. Can you help me understand the situation a bit more?

Does the same audio behaviour happen with headphones or external speakers plugged in?

Also, this model and several other notebook models suffer from sound driver issues that result in distorted audio output such as popping noises or hissing. This occurs with all types of audio sources including CDs, DVDs, Blu-Ray discs, and Internet streaming sites.

Have you also updated the chipset drivers? Even if BIOS and audio drivers are updated they both may rely on chipset drivers as well.

Is the operating system Windows 7 64bit or 32bit?

HP recommends doing a system restore to original factory setup :-(

Sir if you're using VLC player or any player that goes beyond the limitation of volume of the computers then don't use it.

Go for normal windows player or real player

When playing video on my Acer 5534 laptop, it get's really hot, and causes a hissing sound from the speakers. I have no idea, and the Acer website was of no help to me.

Your problem could be a hardware problem. Probably the fan is not cooling the audio or the video chip ant those components are getting too hot and make the hissing sound.
You maybe want to contact Acer customer service for repair before damaging much more those components.

I would strongly suggest you cease using the power charger. There is definitely a hardware failure inside of it. Continued use may result in it frying your laptop. -Ravi Shanghavi

Fujitsu Lifebook C2330 Monitor dark

ih some older lap tops have a wheel on the side of the screen that enables you to adjust the screens light or darkness. please excuse me if I am stating the obvious but I am not totally familiar with this model
as for the hissing this sounds like the fan needs cleaning as it is running under speed and causing the system to slightly over heat which is why the light keeps flashing..
In reply to your question with regard to can it be fixed is it worth it. if it was mine I would take it apart and clean the fan. In your case you should take it to a small out let to get it checked over. Hope this helps

Distorted sound - drink spilt

ok..that's helpful..the sound card, so to speak, is embedded on motherboard on these units, so you'll need to replace that entirely(not simple, but not out of the realm of possibility).
