High pitched beeping sound when I try to record

Hi There
I'm getting a high pitched beeping sound when I try to record with Audacity. This started happening when I reconnected my PC (Windows 7) to my turntable (Audio Technica ATLP1240USB) after a long period of having the computer completely disconnected from everything. None of the settings has been changed and it worked perfectly well before, so I can't think what has gone wrong. Can anyone help please?

Many thanks.

Noise is analog so when you're connected via USB, any noise is coming from the turntable.



Is it a loud beep or a quiet background sound? Or, you can attach/upload a short sample for us?

Hi There
Thanks for your reply, sorry It's taken so long to do this I've been away on holiday. I've attached a 30 second sample of the sound that I am getting, I think it maybe a setup issue that I'm having as it's occurring on two identical PC's that I have, both are running Windows 7.

That almost sounds like feedback... Is your Recording Device the USB turntable or something else? (It may not show the model of your turntable, but it should say "USB...")
