Default Help: Constant buzzing - not fan

Hi all,

I'm new and in desperate need of insights. I have a HP Compaq Presario 2500 laptop and about 2 months ago it began to make a constant buzz sound. It will buzz in 1 second intervals as long as it is on (hibernation as well.) It isn't coming from the speakers or the fan. When I restart I'm usually granted a 5 minute period of no buzzing before it starts.

I didn't buy the warranty, so i've avoided taking it in for repair. But the noise is driving me crazy!

Possible triggers include the installation of additional memory?! Otherwise I don't know what could be causing the noise.

Any ideas?

m.

do you have it near a tv or any power source? sounds like it could be interference.. Like if it's right next to the moniter or something.

Kiyotaka -

Nope just the laptop. Also, when unplugged from the powersource or when plugged in and no matter where the lap top is it makes this noise.

Thanks for the suggestion.
