I have a ten year old HP laptop running Windows 7 which I use basically for streaming radio stations through Winamp. I ran the most recent Windows updates over the weekend & today 3 times upon coming out of hibernate, with Winamp starting the radio streams immediately, the audio sounds like a helicopter for about 1-2 minutes, then clears up on its own. The laptop sits atop a stereo center, with a CD on the next level under, & the tuner under that & speakers on either side. I use a Belkin FM transmitter connected through the headphone jack to send the music to FM 88.1 as I've done for years. The stereo set-up including laptop has not changed for years.
The laptop has a non-working disc drive & replacement battery, but has otherwise worked like a champ. I was very dismayed to find the laptop was making the noise (although if it had been the less than two year old tuner, I'd have been downright mad).
I've tried Googling this issue but for the life of me can't figure out the proper terms to find my exact problem. Therefore I come to you good folks to pick your brains.
