Windows 7: Speakers Make Occasional Pop/click noise independent of volume

Yeah, I was asking for your A-OK first. I'll go ahead and install the drives excluding the BIOS either tonight or tomorrow and let you know.

Installed three drivers. The two wireless ones, and the audio driver.

Here's what's going on now.

I now have a new way to induce the sound. The speakers will now make the "popping" noise when I edit the volume of the communication headphones.

I didn't have them on my volume mixer before. The "pop" will be heard after letting go of the mouse button when dragging the volume up and down.

EDIT: Oh, there's another symptom that's cropped up a while back I keep forgetting to mention. Sometimes on youtube the volume will drop for a moment every few seconds, then raise back up again.

Is this "new way" in addition to the "ways" you have been able to induce the noise before the updates?

It may be new, but I doubt it. I had my communication headphones disabled before, but I suspect if they were on I would have been able to do the same thing.

Try to endure your situation..

Let us wait a fortnight, until you come home to the States.

Post back when you settle in, and use the machine for a week or so.

Let us know how it works after you get back.................


I will be going over your thread to see if we missed anything.

Could the sound card just be failing at this point? My laptop sees heavy usage. If I have to, I really don't mind getting an external sound card. They don't run for as much as other parts tend to.

EDIT: I disabled volume dulling while using a communications device. This may have solved the problem with youtube dulling its volume for no apparent reason. I'm not quite sure though as it's not incredibly consistent.

I wouldn't think so, but you can try an external. The device that is in there now may just be incompatible. Just make sure you have any internal or on-board sound devices/cards disabled.
You should be able to do that in Device Manager.

That is telling me that your sound device, and or sound program is not capable.

I'm having more problems now. I'm getting spikes of cpu memory usage, I think. My task manager is slow and unresponsive, as is explorer and firefox (though much less severely) and presumably other internet browsers. I scanned with malwarebytes and removed 36 infections. I scanned again with AVG and all seems clear, but the problem persists. I've attached the log. Latencymon isn't picking up anything.

I'm going to give system restore a shot.

EDIT: Aaaand system restore caused a blue screen.

Here's a link to the dmp file.

I should also mention that the computer doesn't boot like this, but it's gotten slow a few times over the past few days.

Is my PC going to brick?

Is your machine going to brick? I certainly hope not!

Your Mbam report showed no malicious items, but I would suggest removing AVG, pick your version, and installing MSE just to test.

You could also try Superantispyware, it will find malware that mbam can miss. The freeware version will be sufficient.

The reason your machine has gotten slow the past few days is because it still has some nasties in it.

You may even want to try the: Microsoft Safety Scanner - Antivirus | Remove Spyware, Malware, Viruses

Your .dmp file points to a mis-behaved driver in your USB Hub:

---------
For more information: DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE (9f)

The usbhub.sys file is the default hub driver for USB, and is updated only through Windows Update, so make sure your dv7 is updated which I think we already checked.

Try following Troubleshooting specific Stop messages 0x0000009F Descriptive text: DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE especially step #5.

Do you have any Mfg. disks that you could try a System Restore, Option Two or Startup Repair, in safe mode?

You are going to have to make sure your machine is completely free of malware or you will end up doing a: Repair Install

Scanning with MSE right now. I just noticed that when I unplugged my laptop, the slowness kicked in. Putting it into and out of hibernation mode seemed to remedy the problem. Does that narrow anything down?

EDIT: Well after nearly five hours of scanning, all MSE found was a keygen file. I'll give the other methods a shot.

EDITED EDIT: Restored my computer. Successfully this time. I think I may have picked the virus up while on a really crappy hotel network in tokyo, and I restored to a point before then. Going to scan again to make sure the other things I picked up are gone.
