You can switch to another audio cable and port to see if the buzzing sound is disappeared. You might even experience a high-pitched noise when the computer is off! Sounds like Alvin and the chipmunks. In the case of speaker wires and patch cables, fixing the problem is often a simple matter of repositioning them so that they are far enough away from power cables and other potential noise sources, and ground issues are often solved by cleaning the ground location to ensure a solid connection.
Yes No. That's caused similar sound for me in my '88 civic wagon with aftermarket stereo. When these components, especially fans, collect enough dust that it slows down how they work, it can force them to run faster to make up for it, which is going to demand more power and thus produce more noise like coil whine.
To fix the problem, try reducing the hardware-acceleration level for your audio card by doing the following:. Thread Tools Show Printable Version. I'll check the battery and alternator for anything later. The fans are really important for keeping out hot air, so only change the fan speed if your computer isn't overheating and only if you've made the fans faster at some point, and that's why they're making noises.
When the electrical current is increased to a certain point, the magnetic field around the coil can cause it to vibrate, which produces the whiny sound.
When buying a new computer part to fix coil whine, try looking at places that have a good return policy so that, if after running a benchmark on the hardware the high-pitched noise is too much of a bother or comes on too easily, you can just return it and look elsewhere.
I KNOW the alternator is going because im getting that headlight and dash lights flickering action.
