Buzzing noise coming out of my headphones when plugged into laptop

HP Recommended
pavilion cb060sa
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I recently bought a the HP Pavilion cb060sa and i realised straight away after plugging in my headphones that there is a background humming/stuttering noise which is constantly audible with the headphones plugged in, and even in the background of videos or music it will still  be audible (but very faint). How can I fix this issue?

Hi @henryskudder22,


Thanks for stopping by the HP community. A very good day to you. I reviewed the post regarding issues with audio from your headphones. I will be delighted to assist you here.

Superb description and stupendous diagnosis of the issue before posting. Kudos to you for that. 🙂

For better clarity and to assist you better I would require information regarding this:

  • Did this happen after a recent Software or OS update?
  • Did you try multiple headphones?
  • How does it sound from the internal speakers?

For now, please try these steps:

  • Please try with another headphone and check if you hear the buzzing noise.
  • Check with external speakers if possible to isolate the issue further.
  • If it is the same with different headsets and works correctly from the internal speakers, then it is an audio port issue of the notebook.
  • If the speakers also have the same buzzing noise, then it could be an audio driver issue.

For this issue perform these steps:

  • Right-Click on start button> click device manager> expand sound video and game controllers>then select the sound drivers and right-click on it and uninstall the audio drivers. Then check the box delete the software for this device.
  • Then restart the computer and update the bios, chipset and audio drivers from this link: and follow the on-screen instructions.
  • Then check if the situation has been corrected.


This should fix the issue. If the audio from the speakers is clear, then the issue is with the audio port of the computer and you need to contact HP phone support to get the computer serviced.
