Noise when using computer

Suddenly, when I use my computer to get on the internet, I hear a thud. It happened once before, but suddenly disappeared. I wonder if the fan may be bad. Any ideas on what is the cause? The only other time that I hear it is when my computer is near the end of the scan of Norton fuul. This was bought in 2009 is therefore an old computer.


HP Slimline s3700y PC

Windows Vista

PS Now I don't hear the noise, but most of the time I hear the sound when you go to different Web sites.


I tried your suggestion yesterday and by changing the diet plan of the balanced or recommended energy saving plan has worked. I don't hear any noise now.  The performance for power management is not as good as it takes more time to load web pages, but I prefer this to the noise. He said beside the plan of standby power energy savings is rated with a 5 and the performance is rated a 2, while balanced or recommended plan has energy savings, a 3 and performance 3.

I've always kept it on the recommended plan, which I think is the plan by default as it was defined like this when I bought my computer.

Out of curiosity, why is she become necessary now that I change for energy savings?  I have that noise when I got to my computer. Is this because the computer is older?

The information that you sent me has also stated the following:

Some parameters to cause fans to turn too fast for a typical home environment. If you use the computer in an environment quiet where temperatures remain mild and stable (up to and 30 degrees Celsius or 86 degrees fahrenheit), and then follow these steps to adjust the power settings in a more appropriate setting:

Do you know why the environment calm and temperatures are a factor?

I waited until today to answer that I wanted to test it for another day. I also put it to (balanced) recommended plan and the noise comes back then I then changed once again to the energy saver and it will keep on saving.

Thanks for your help.

  • PCI-6733 signal noise when the computer screen is plugged, the weight on the case


    I hope that it is in the right section.

    Card: PCI-6733

    I'm a 60 Hz, 2 mV peak-to-peak with a compensated 2.4mV noise when the monitor is plugged into the VGA port.

    Same card in a second computer, problem is more serious, 4mV Ridge to Ridge, 4.3mV offset. When I push on the case near the power supply the offset rises from a few millivolts.

    The two computers are running the same exact versions of software and drivers. Dell and quite similar to each other in both material and form.

    I have a third computer that noise coming out of the map is horrible no matter what.

    I exchange business cards and the problem is with the computer, does not follow the acquisition cards.

    No idea how to solve this problem and what is the cause?

    Thanks for any thoughts!



    Looks like you may be plugging your monitor and your computer in different points of sale.  If this is the case, this is probably the cause of your noise and can be eliminated by connecting the two devices on the same socket.

    Here are some articles that deal with the noise you are experiencing and various workarounds in the cases where what I mentioned above are not the case:

  • Equium A210 - excessive noise when using an amplifier

    Hi all. I have a Toshiba Satellite A210, and when I plug it into an amp via the headphone jack, I have excessive "noise" through the amp. This only happens when I use the external power supply. If I'm running on batteries it is OK, but it's not good if I need to use it for an entire evening.

    Any other PC works fine through an amp. What is a 'feature' of Toshiba or can I do something?

    If I remember right here in this forum that several people have reported to this topic. I'm not 100% sure but I think you need new AC adapter.
    Your adapter is connected to power with 2 or 3 pin power cable?

  • Static in speakers when using Skype

    I have a PC laptop HP Envy Touchsmart IS-j052nr, running Windows 8.1.  When I use Skype, either through headphones or the speakers, I have problems from parasites.  It sounds clear when I speak and when the person at the other end is speaking, but if the person on the other end does not speak for several minutes, then the static method noise becomes stronger and stronger (like a huge storm of rain falling at the hearing) until the other person makes a new sound.  The other person can also hear static.

    Is there a new driver, I can download to fix this problem?  When I scanned my computer on the support site there is no audio driver I was missing.

    Thank you!

    Hello SCLC.

    Welcome to the Forums of HP Support! I understand when you use Skype on your HP Envy Touchsmart j052nr IS running Windows 8.1 you hear static, whether you use headphones or speakers. Now you don't hear static noises when using Skype, or when using headphones or require sound from speakers?

    After some research on the Skype Support Forums, I've seen a few recommendations that I would like you to try to see if that reduces / removes this annoying static noise. Please follow the steps listed below:

    1 sign in to Skype

    2. go in Tooks > Options > General > Audio settings

    3 uncheck automatically adjust to the title of chapters of Microphone and speakers

    4. adjust the volume to your liking

    5 save and restart Skype

    If you are still having static noise, I wish that you continue here: Skype Audio issues troubleshooting

    Please reply back with the information requested, if the static noises are still there and it is only when you are using Skype, I recommend to go to the Page of Support of Skype as they would be able to help you.

    I'll watch for your reply.

  • I have a problem when using Google Maps, at a certain point my custards computer window and says there is a problem with the display drivers and he recovered, but it is not. Problem does not occur with Int Explorrer, so I don't think it's the computer

    When using google maps via Firefox, after asking a place which is not the General section of North America who comes up regularly, the firefox screen becomes white with a narrow banner at the top. A message appears in the lower right corner that says something on display drivers having had a problem, but now have been recovered. However, the display is not recover and the message of the banner is that Firefox is not responding. When I go to restart Firefox if I'm about to restore, the page is still frozen.
    I don't think there is a problem with my computer because it doesn't happen if I used to go to google maps, then G-cards works normally.
    This phenomenon didn't happen before the last update Google or Firefox. I used Fiefox for some years and also Google Maps on previous computers and on this one and not had it before.
    It is a relatively young computer (Asus EeSlate 121) less than a year. I have used Firefox since I bought it and until recently had no problem with Google Maps.

    I solved it myself, after the 'note' that was FF/Mozilla, just as I finished my message, commenting on what it was that my system was, I wnnt back to check my plug-ins, etc. I downloaded the latest Java, the TWO 32-bit AND 64-bit versions and latest Firefox.
    Now everything works.
    Thank you

    That looks like someone trying to sound like they know what they're talking about, but in fact having no idea, but assuming you less than even that they will do - which gives the illusion that they know more.

    What is the computer make & model?

    You have picked up the machine, bought some canned / air compressed to clean electronics, has opened the computer (in the case of office) and blew the fans/bown case?  (You must blow out the vents of admission / a laptop computer in a similar way.)

    Seems to me a dirty system and/or a faulty fan.
