U460 - speaker makes annoying buzz noise

The one of the speaker (right front) makes annoying buzz noise (like interference but no high-pitch sound) when no sound is playing.  Mute doesn't help it.

But if I plug in the headphone to headphone jack, this noise goes away.  ( I think because the power of speaker is shut off).

 

I tried to update the driver or BIOS but I have the up-to-dated version

Does anyone has same or similar problem or even solution?

 

Thanks.

try to turn the bass little lower, and please post the version of sound drivers that you are using.

Re: U460 - speaker makes annoying buzz noise

I had Realtek 6.0.1.6083 driver.

I uninstalled Realtek driver package first and restarted machine. Then Win7 installed default HD sound driver. After then, it worked ok withtout noise so far. I will do more testing tonight.

Also, I will install Realtek driver package again to see if I can reproduce the issue.

 

Thanks.
