When watching youtube sometimes I’ll get a mechanical sound, like if I were hearing the video really slow down for a second. Then things go back to normal. This happens on different browsers. I don’t know how to describe the sound other than just distortion that lasts a second or two, and sounds like the computer isn’t processing the videos properly.
I downloaded advanced system care to see if that would fix it, and it didn’t. So I researched it and saw that a high temp CPU could do it. So I downloaded speedfan. It says my GPU and core are at about 60C. I don’t know how high that is, is that something to worry about?
A little over a year ago I had to have the CPU fan replaced on my PC. I’m wondering if it broke again.
Or it could be a totally different cause.
FWIW, I don’t think I"ve ever had this problem when gaming on my laptop, just when watching videos like youtube.
