Laptop makes piercing sound when I close the screen

This problem just started last night. I was using my laptop like normal and I was ready to go to bed. So I closed the screen like I do all the time but this time the speakers (I guess) makes a loud piercing sound. It sounds like when someone is having mic problems on stage. I shut down the laptop and bring it back up confident that I wouldn't have the problem anymore however I was wrong. Anyone have any ideas? I never use the laptops mic so I don't think that is the problem. However I am a tech moron.

Re: Laptop makes piercing sound when I close the screen

1. Go to sound/audio management

2. Check the Microphone Tab

3. Mute/Reduce the Playback Volume

See if that works.

Re: Laptop makes piercing sound when I close the screen

Try this. The exact steps might vary slightly on your laptop.

1. Control Panel
2. Sound
3. Recording
4. Internal microphone
5. Properties
6. Levels - Microphone Boost. Turn this off, or turn it lower.

or maybe

Go to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Manage Audio Devices > Recording (tab) > Properties (for the microphone) > Driver usage - and set to Don't use this device (disable)
