50% of the time I hear a buzzing sound coming from my speaker. As a temporary remedy, I try to plug and unplug the speaker or change its position.
It’s getting really annoying now. I had a guy check it before and he cleared the sound card as the cause issue. Do you have any other suggestions why this is happening? The speaker is new and the computer is over a year old.
Indeed, just like mine. My sound card is already broken and it creates that kind of sound. If the speaker is just new then it is less likely that it is the cause of the problem. Also, if a technician already checked it before and said the problem is coming from the sound card then you need to replace it because there is nothing to fix.
If you can’t buy a new sound card yet, the only remedy you can do is adjust the setting or acceleration level of the sound card. To try this, click “Start,” “All Programs,” “Accessories” then right-click “Command Prompt” and select “Run as administrator.” In the command prompt window, type without quotes “dxdiag” then hit Enter. It will launch the Microsoft DirectX Diagnostic Tool.
Select “Sound” tab then under “DirectX Features,” drag the slider for “Hardware Sound Acceleration Level” one level to the left then click “Exit.” See how the sound goes after this. If there is still a problem with the sound, repeat the steps and move the slider one more level to the left. If the problem continues, move the slider all the way to “No acceleration.”
This will be the best setting for your sound card until you buy a new one.
