Question about Gateway GMAX 2100 Computer Speakers
Same popping sound problem with my Gateway computer and GMAX 2100 speakers. First the popping was sporadic, then it kept getting worse. The problem was in the Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS board. I replaced it with a less expensive Audigy SE board and the problem is fixed, sound is great. I looked closely at the old board and it looks like there were defects in 3 of the solder connections on the back of the board. It looked like corrosion in the solder or something was shoring a few of the posts. CC

There is a fault with this model that Logitech know about. It is a design fault regarding improper shielding. See this link for more info: http://forums.logitech.com/logitech/board/message?board.id=51_speakers&message.id=811&view=by_date_ascending&page=1

The problem was caused by a regurater electrolytic capacitor that only 16 volt rate while the real supplied direct voltage to it, is 27 volt. So its electrolyte leaked and causing output voltage that feed power ic to be ripples. the solution is replacing that capacitor with 35 volt rate or more. if your power ics didnot damage yet ,this would solve the problem.

It is possible that either the speakers or the sound card have an internal fault. The best way to isolate this type of problem is to use a different audio source than your sound card uses in order to test the speakers. You can use a portable CD player, the headphone jack on your CD or DVD drive, or the headphone jack on your VCR, for example. In some instances, the speakers have been known to pick up noise from an external source. This is difficult to isolate as just about every electrical device in your house/office gives off some amount of radio frequency (RF) or electromagnetic interference (EMI) signals. Some of the more common items that can cause noise are: Your monitor Fluorescent lights An uninterruptable power supply (UPS) The computer itself Fans Turn off as many of these devices as possible before you test your speakers. Also, if your speakers are plugged into a power strip or UPS, try plugging them directly into the wall outlet instead. Good luck
