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 😐

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
