Hi,
Here´s my problem:
When I plug in my headphones to my computer (windows 10, acer predator 17 laptop) I always hear a buzzing noise, time to time also beeping. I do hear everything that i want to play (music, games etc.) but that weird sound is always there in the background. How high the volume is set doesnt effect that weird noise either, I can hear it when the sound is turned off. I have also tried to remove the mouse, adapter etc but with no result.
I have also noticed that I hear it more the better the headphones are. I can almost not hear when I test it with my apple earpods but its really annoying when i have a gaming headset.
Another problem is that the headphones arent appearing in the sound device menu, I think I have updated the driver for everything but with no result.
Please help! What should I do???

It sounds as though you have a short, or a loose wire, which is causing interference with the headset. These are typically physical problems, that cannot be corrected without repairing the connection, or the device. A wrong drive would not create a buzz or a hum, a wrong driver wold cause NO Sound!

You can clean out the port with canned air after turning it off. You could take it apart and see if there is a broken or loose wire! Try another pair of headphones, and see if you get the same noise. If you do with another set of headphones, then it is definitely the PC, and not the headphones!

Understand. You may also isolate issue away by seeing if it goes away if it is connected to the AC and wall power. If it does go away, you have an open ground!

Hi again, I just came up with an idea, do you think it would work if I used headphones that I just connected with bluetooth to the computer?
