As soon as I launch Google Chrome or another Chromium based browser, I can hear a constant annoying zooming/buzzing sound. I don't have this problem with IE, Firefox, Safari or Opera.
I tried several versions of Google Chrome and Chromium, uninstall/reinstall, portable versions, with or without plugins/extensions, clean Windows installation, disable all possible sound sources through sound settings control panel, disable microphone, ... But none of them worked. I even changed my speaker cables because of electrical interference.
Complete sound mute through volume mixer without succes.
The moment I close Chrome the sound disappears.
- OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1 + latest updates
- Speakers: Logitech z560
- Soundcard: Onboard card ASRock M3N78D - 7.1 CH HD Audio (VIA®VT1718S Audio Codec)
Installed older versions and latest sound card drivers v10_1200a without succes.
Does anyone have an idea what might cause the problem? Thanks.
