Windows 10: Weird buzzing noise in headphones and speakers while in games

    Weird buzzing noise in headphones and speakers while in games


    So I'm on the same setup I have always been... Nothing was changed. On Windows 7 I had no problem, on 8.1 it started and now on W10 I still can't get rid of it.
    Anytime I'm in game, no matter what game, I get this weird buzzing/humming/screeching noise that won't stop. It happens both on my built in speakers of the screen I'm using (Samsung SyncMaster P2770HD) and on my headphones (Razer Kraken). I even tried to plug my Sennheiser ear-phones to see if it has anything to do with that. Still noise.
    I tried switching plugs, uninstalling Realtek Audio Drivers, reinstalling Nvidia drivers, playing with all kinds of settings in game and Windows-wise. I just can't figure out what the problem is.

    My specs:
    i5 - 4460, GTX 970 G1, 8GB Ram, Gigabyte H97 Motherboard.
    I'm on the latest Windows 10 version with the latest drivers installed.

    Thanks in advance!

    The playback for microphone or line in may be too high, check in Realtek control panel and lower it, turn it down or mute it.

    I have heard of something like this before (only a suggestion) try reinstalling your network adapter.
