    I have recently put together a PC. During video playback, video games, and music an infrequent and short but extremely annoying buzzing will occur accompanied by slowdown. It will happen at least once an hour, give or take. This video demonstrates it quite well.

    It's a bit more staggard and shorter when it happens to my PC. It doesn't seem to occur when I don't have any audio. That's not to say it's not happening, of course. I have a monitor and two TVs hooked up to my GPU. This issue happens across all of them.

    I have completed this list of suggestions on the advice of a Microsoft advisor with no luck.

    1. Run system file checker from Start > Command prompt > Type and enter: sfc /scannow
    2. Run DISM, type and enter in command prompt: DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth
    3. Run check disk, type and enter: chkdsk c: /f /r
    4. Ensure that your graphics and audio drivers are updated, check the manufacturer's site and do not relay on "search for automatic updates".
    5. Re-seat your RAM.

    I've just reinstalled Windows 10 (keep personal files) which, of course, didn't work. I have also replaced the RAM and PSU.

    I was told that it could be down to my CPU being too hot. I did a test and it is running at about 33 degrees celsius, which I think is ok.

    My latest effort has had my uninstall the Nvidia audio from the Device Manager completely on the advice of someone with a similar issue. Even if this doesn't work it doesn't feel like a long term solution. I may be wrong, though.

    I've read some pretty bleak things about this issue like it's a bug that Microsoft aren't prepared to fix and that people have done far more than me and still had no results. Any help would be much appreciated.
