I am experiencing a buzzing sound when I play music online. I primarily listen to music through the microblogging site Tumblr. For example, if I had a song playing for a minute or so and opened a new tab I will hear a buzzing sound for anywhere between 2 to 10 seconds. Other times, particularly during songs that are longer, the audio will fail and I will get an error message with a red x on the song I clicked. Neither of these problems happen all the time. The buzz is more prominent and seems to happen more frequently when I am opening and closing tabs.
I have narrowed this down somewhat. It does not happen when I play an actual CD in the drive. It does not happen when I listen to a song on Youtube. It does not happen if I play an mp3 that I have saved on my computer. It does not happen when streaming a podcast. I have listened to podcasts that are over an hour long and did not get the buzzing or failed audio message. It does not happen in Internet Explorer.
This seems to be related to tumblr sites and/or Chrome. I have pasted a link as an example of a song where this occurs.
Things I have tried:
1. Updated the drivers
2. Scanned for viruses/malware
3. Updated Windows
4. I thought perhaps there was a conflict between the different versions of Adobe Flash but was not comfortable with removing any of them with my limited knowledge. Under programs it lists, in order,
Adobe Flash Player 10plugin
Adobe Flash Player 11ActiveX
The computer specs are below. Thanks so much!
