Audio freezes and buzzing on desktop

HP Recommended
Pavillion P6367C
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I hve a 5 year old Pavillion P6367c from Costco with Core2 Quad Q8300 processor @5331 mghz, 8GB DDR3, Win 7 64bit, 

Pegatron MB Eureka 3 and Realtek HD Audio. I recently replaced my Hard Drive for the 3rd time since buying this new and reinstalled all the sw from the HP discs.  I have now consistently had problems with my sound. I can be listening to a cd, playing an MP3, streaming from YouTube and the sound will freeze for a second and there will be a loud buzz. It happens through the speakers and thru headphones. I have reinstalled the Realtek HD driver off the HP site a couple of times and it has not helped. I had this issue before with the last HD and it usually happened after a Windows Update. I reinstalled the driver a few times and it was fine. This time it has nad no impact. I am trying to figure out how to address this but need to diagnose the problem . The HP Update sw says the pc is all current. I ran "DriverUpdate" sw andit said I had 19 out of date drivers? I have not subscribed to this service because I am not sure its legit. SO, how can I fix this?

Hi @bluesy52,

 

Welcome to the HP Support Community! I hope that you enjoy your time with us.

 

I saw your post regarding the audio issues with your Pavilion. There could be a hardware issue causing the problem if you have already tried reinstalling the drivers. Give this steps in this HP document No Sound from Speakers a try. It will have you use the built-in Windows Troubleshooter to diagnose any issues.

Tried thtat approach and ran thru diagnostic. Troubleshooter found nothing. I then played a wav file and it repeated the buzzing midway through it. So, the issue is still there. I dont know what it is so not sure what the next step shoudl be. I know the sound card is built into the motherboard. I have wondered about buying a se[arate sound card thinking that woudl, once installed, bypass the mb one...not sure. Pretty frustrating.

Bumping this message as I got one response which I tried but it did not work. Looking for support on possible next steps? Anyone? Any way to do hardware diagnostics on the sound card on the MB?

Hi bluesy52,

 

Since that Troubleshooter didn't find anything and the driver didn't work then I am leaning towards a problem with the integrated sound card. If you did install a new sound card it would disable the integrated sound card. If you are looking to try a new sound card there are three slots you can use in the motherboard.
