Constant High-Pitch, Alert-like Sound Playing From PC Even When Sound Devices Are Muted And Disabled.


Recommended Posts

For the past several months, I've been experiencing my PC randomly emitting this high-pitch, alert-like sound from my monitor's speakers even after I mute and disable all sound devices. It would only stop when I shut down my PC. At first, it would only happen once or twice a week. But now it occurs several times a day and I don't know what to do anymore.

If anyone is wondering, I made sure that there were not any background programs running in Task Manager during these sporadic episodes. Since this has only started happening as of a few months ago, perhaps this is some sort of glitch caused by a Windows Update? 


Here is a Google Drive link to a video I took of the computer making these sounds: 


OS Specs:

Edition: Windows 10 Home

Version: 20H2

OS Build: 19042.1348

Experience: Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.3920.0


Is anyone else having this issue? Any insight into this befuddling situation would greatly appreciated.
