My Laptop Generates Static Noise?

Postby Abir » Tue Oct 17, 2017 5:24 am

From time to time, I hear some VERY loud static noise from my laptop that sounds exactly like a 2 second music clip from a dubstep song. It sounds like Skrillex is playing dubstep with my computer.

What the hell is going on??? When ever it happens, it not only interferes with the sound, but if I'd be dragging my mouse along the screen, you could see it kind of jump forward bit by bit, instead of moving smoothly forward... The sound is buzzing, but VERY loud.

it sounds like your hard drive is having difficulty reading or writing data, this causes the head to seek up/down the disk rapidly to try and re-position itself at the same track and retry to read / write.

it means you may have an impending hard drive failure

run the system tools > scan disk function to check the disk for errors and backup anything important to another drive/memory stick ASAP
