On Dell D830 Laptop am suddenly getting screeching/electrical/static type sound when playing any sound device based video like youtube, winamp. This sound also shows up when windows starts or any computer sounds etc.

Tried restarting, restoring the system. Also checked that it is not only related to internet videos but also mp3 music played on winamp or windows player.

Thx for all the inputs and advises in advance.
 
This is almost 10-year old laptop. There is a good chance some components are dying, slowly, resulting in glitches likes the one you're seeing.

A (temporary) solution would be to get $10 USB-based sound card. More expensive solution is to get a replacement motherboard, with unknown quality.
