|My laptop's built in speakers have been emitting a high pitched static sound whenever a sound is supposed to be made normally through the speakers. You can faintly hear the orginal sound if you listen closely, but the volume of the static is much higher than that of the sound. It doesn't matter whether I'm using a media player, a computer game, or just the sounds windows makes to express an error, or just test the speakers. The static remains as high pitched and ear piercing as ever. |
I have tried updating, rolling back, uninstalling/re-installing sound drivers to no avail. I have disabled the microphone (even though there is no built-in microphone, or if there is, it's not picking up any sounds made.) I've tried several other commonly found solutions to have no success.
The only things that seem to change the way the sound is emitted are when I installed silverlight, which caused the static to be made in a lower pitch, but the original sound supposed to be heard is not able to be heard at all anymore. I then tried with and without silverlight installed to change the speaker quality from 24 bit to 16 and all the different settings under properties in the advanced tab, and it changed the static from being only on the left or right side predominately.
All this leads me to belive that it is a hardware problem, but I have no earthly idea as to what to do.
The sound is coming from the speakers. not around the speakers, from the speakers. The sound's volume goes up and down with the volume controls, so 100% speakers... somehow.
Help is much appreciated, and I thank you in advance.
