Buzzing sound coming from speakers

My Dell Inspiron n7110 sometimes makes a buzzing sound from its speakers whenever I have audio playing.  This only happens when I'm using the built-in speakers, if I'm using my headset, my sound works just fine.  Is this a sign that my speakers are old, and might need replacing, or is there an easier fix for this?

RE: Buzzing sound coming from speakers

I had this issue recently and I noticed that even when I'm using my headset the buzzing sound appear Smiley Indifferent

In my case, the buzzing sound was not continuous and can only be heard while playing audio and using the browser or other things. I found out that (DirectX 11) somehow has something to do with the audio. So I downgrade it to (9.0c) and the buzz gone.

Nope, no good.  What OS are you using?  I'm using Windows 7.

EDIT: A DirectX Diagnosis says there are no problems detected

Go to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Power Options and check the Balanced option instead of power saver

hope that helps
