Some times when stuff like that happens your sound enhancements
might be turned on and in most cases turning it off fixes these
I copied and pasted this from my website check to see if it is on
then turn it off. this was done on a windows 10 machine 1909 but
should be similar in earlier versions?
Disabling sound enhancements in Windows
Sometimes when there is an update for Windows, you may hear a
buzzing sound (and other strange noises) from the computer while
If this is the case, you will need to turn off sound enhancements
in Windows for your sound card. The steps to turn it off may be
similar for other Windows 10 computers.
Press the Windows key, and in the search box type sound settings.
When it comes up with this result, press the Enter key. The first
option might say Choose your output device Speakers (High
Definition Audio Device). Next, tab once to device properties,
then press the Enter key. The next screen that comes up will say
home. If you tab about 7 times you will then hear NVDA say
Additional device properties. Press the enter key.
The next screen should come up with speaker properties. Shift tab
back once or twice - until you hear NVDA say General. There are 5
tabs there. Use your right arrow key to get to the enhancements
tab, then tab a couple of times until you hear NVDA say Disable
all enhancements. This should be a check box. Please note, in some
cases, after you tab once (after the enhancements tab) you might
need to arrow down or tab to locate the disable all enhancements
checkbox. You will hear other stuff for the sound card being
spoken out, but they can be left unchecked. You will need to tab
to hear the "disable enhancements" checkbox if you arrowed down
the list of enhancements and check the checkbox with the Spacebar.
You will then need to apply and ok your changes with the Spacebar.
Now, those weird buzzing sounds etcetera should be gone!

I posted this in the NVDA chat list, and was
advised to post it here in the main list:
I just got a new computer. Ando had issues with the
initial setup, like when the computer first turned on the very
first time and it was asking me to get things set up, and it had
voice already- I guess it was narrator, it would stop responding
and had to keep restarting multiple times. And then when setup
process was finished I have had the following issue. Not sure if
I should contact someone, and if so who. Or is there something
that is just related to NVDA or what.
Help and ideas are greatly appreciated. I got this
computer through Walmart, by the way.
pasting the info of the computer I got. And hoping someone
could help me figure out what to do. NVDA is installed and
I have had problems. A lot of the time NVDA just doesn’t
talk or it responds very very slowly, for example I press
tab or down arrow on a website, or on desktop or wherever
and after 7-8
it speaks next line or item...
when this happens I have only one application running, or
it’s on desktop and have nothing open.
