Chirping Cricket Sounds

If you are hearing repeating, period, high-pitched sounds you may be experiencing interference from some process in the computer that is "polling" devices in your computer. Here are a couple of things you can try.

Disable Unnecessary Audio Outputs

  1. Start
  2. All Programs
  3. Accessories
  4. Entertainment
  5. Volume Control (shortcut to this step, Start | Run | sndvol32.exe)
  6. Options
  7. Properties
  8. Adjust Properties for Playback
    in the box "Show the following volume controls"
  9. Check all the devices
  10. Click OK
  11. Mute all the devices except "Mute all"

If the chirping cricket sound goes away, uncheck the mute until you identify which one is causing the trouble. If it is *not* the Wave device, you can are probably okay to leave things muted - as you probably don't need the others for music playback.


Disable Infrared Device (if not used)

  1. Start
  2. Control Panel
  3. Performance and Maintenance
  4. System
  5. Hardware
  6. Device Manager
  7. Infrared devices
    1. right click
    2. disable
  8. Click Red X (top right of window) to close it
  9. click OK
