    Audio Feedback / Buzzing

    I am getting audio buzzing while playing videos, this happens through my
    attached speakers on the Dell flat panel display or through a headset. It
    happened immediatley upon my Vista upgrade, the system had XP Media Center
    before and this did not happen then.

    The buzzing happens with all the players I've tried Windows Media Player,
    Media Player Class, DIVX and VLC Media Player. Sometimes the buzzing stops,
    then starts up again, and the buzzing is less with VLC Media Player.

    Details of my PC are below.

    Thanks for any help, this one is really annoying!

    RE: Audio Feedback / Buzzing

    I can't believe I'm the only one having this problem?? No one else has this
    issue? It is almost unbearable to watch videos or do voice conferencing on
    my 1 year old PC.

    Help!

    I am having the same problem!!! I thought maybe my speakers had gone bad
    and even tried a different set. Buzzing still happens. I can't listen to
    ANY audio through the computer without the annoying buzzing.

    Hello Microsoft tech support . . . . let's get this fixed!

    I also get a lot of audio feedback in the form of buzzing! But I don't get it from my headphones. I only get it when I connect my computer to my audio/visual receiver. It does not happen when my mp3 player is connected to my receiver though; only when the computer is connected to it. I use the same cord for both. I just switch it from my mp3 player to my headphone jack on my computer. But the audio also buzzed when I connected it with the digital audio cable on the back of my computer. I'm not suggesting this is a Vista issue. But some advice in fixing it would be nice. Thanks!

    Just curious, are you connecting digital optical or digital wired?

    Have you tried muting the mic?

    Check for unconnected or unused inputs.

    Right click on Speaker icon in the System Tray
    Select Recording devices

    Select each one, bring up properties and lower the volume, click mute if
    available then disable them.

    You might also test Playback format for SPDIF

    Connect the PC to your A/V receiver

    Click Playback tab
    Select the SPDIF device
    Click Properties button
    Click Supported Formats
    Click on DTS Audio to highlight
    Click Test Button
    Click Yes or No when asked
    Click Dolby Digital to highlight
    Click Test Button
    Click Yes or No when asked
    Same with Microsoft WMA Pro Audio
    Same for sampling rate.

    If you click no, it will uncheck the box, if yes it will put a check mark in
    the box.
