    Buzzing Sound
    « on: April 25, 2008, 01:45:28 AM »
    Can anyone help? I turn on my computer and the sound works fine for about 30 second. Then all of the sudden all i get is a constant buzz, there no music or coherent sound behind the buzz just a buzz. I checked it against my headphones and the same sound is in the head phones. My speakers work fine on other computers and my ipod. i have deleted the drivers and reinstalled them, i also have updated the drivers,  I have had all the old registry cleaned out. i have taken out the old sound card and unistalled it and  put in a new one. I don't know what else i can do to fix this problem. please if anyone can help me out that would be great! thanks

    Make sure the you're plugging the cord into the correct hole on the sound card (the green one) and that it's going in all the way.

    Have you tried to plug another set of speakers into your computer? Did it work ok?

      If your sound card is not integrated into the motherboard:

      Check that the sound card is in its slot completely.
      Make sure no wires are against the sound card.
      Reinstall the driver.
      Move the sound card to a different slot.

      If your sound card is integrated into the motherboard:


      Not much you can do here. Reinstall the driver maybe.

        Maybe the sound card is busted.

            i thought it could be the mother board also but i can not figure out why the other card is working on the pci slot, and i don't think it is the power supply plus if the pci slot on the mother board was fried why would the sound card work for the first 30 seconds after i turn on the computer then the buzzing sound kicks in

            Because a component such as a capacitor is faulty and weak and breaks down after 30 seconds of use.

              Try the sound card in another computer if you can, see if you get the same result. If it works ok in the other computer, it's probably the slot or your motherboard. If it is continuing, it's the card.

              I bought this sound card because the other sound card did the same thing

              I'm guessing because you said this, you won't get the same result, but let's just be sure.
