High pitch alarm ssound when alt-tab or windows key typed

Postby Recardo » 24. Jul 2021, 03:06

Good Day:
This is a weird problem.
Host is Windows 10 (patched and up to date) running on a Dell XPSS8930, with 32 G Bytes of memory
Client is running Windows 10 developers, and up to date

When the cursor is active in the VM Window and i type Alt-Tab or use the Windows key, the host system starts emitting a high pitched Warbling sound, that does not go away until the Client is rebooted.
I cannot seem to find a fix for this.

This stared after one the lasted VM WARE updates.

Any one have any ideas.

This one sounds rather unusual, no pun intended.

How does VMware come into the picture? Are you running VMware and Virtualbox at the same time?

Does your VM have noises enabled inside the OS for system events?

Start the VM from full normal shutdown, not save-state. Make the sound problem happen, then shut down the VM from within the VM's OS if possible. If not possible, close the Virtualbox window for the VM with the Power Off option set.

Right-click the VM in the main Virtualbox window's VM list, choose Show Log. Save the far left tab's log and the hardening log next to it, zip them, and post the zip file, using the forum's Upload Attachment tab.

Sounds like it may be a manifestation of the endless echo problem of 6.1.20-6.1.22, in which case 6.1.24 will fix it.

Good Day

My misquote - I'm running Virtual box ver. 6.1.22r144080 on aa window 10 system, the client is also windows 10 developer.

I created the logs as requested, and they are attached.

Please try VirtualBox 6.1.24 and see if the problem persists. Because the VirtualBox audio backend underwent extensive changes, analyzing audio problems in previous VirtualBox versions does not make much sense IMHO.
