    I have a terrible buzzing sound during video playback. There is no fan or other sound at any other time, including during the recording of the video. Any ideas? Defect?

    Open Device Manager, find the Audio device(s) and uninstall the driver (do not remove the software) then reboot. It should redetect the audio device and reinstall the driver. That may clear up the issue.

    Worked! Thanks for your help.

    For others with a similar issue, I went to Device Manager and uninstalled the two items in "Audio Inputs and Outputs".

    In "Sound, video and game controllers", I disabled "Intel Display Audio" and "Realtek High Definition Audio". Rebooted, the two that were disabled. It detected and reinstalled the uninstalled items. It works fine now.
