Very loud high pitch audio sound and no actual audio plays

HP Recommended
HP envy 360x  Hello everyone. I have a HP Envy 360 and having a loud high pitch sound when trying to play a audio file. Not sure if coincidence but was plugging in my sound equipment and plugging into headphone jack port as always previously done. Now after powering on unit and attempting to play a audio file I get an unbearable brief spaceship type noise. Anyone have suggestions? I have erased/updated/reset audio drivers and also went back to a previous point just for the heck of it to see with no success. No audio play minus the horrific quick noise. Thanks in advance. Will attempt to also include brief video of sound.
