Scratching (static) noise coming from computer speakers

I have purchased new speakers but still have static noise coming from my speakers. I have run diagnostics on the speakers to no avail.

    the noise is constant. Even when the volume is low. And it just began. We have had the computer for approximately 5 years. Everyone I have talked to.. suggests to get a new sound card. Which poses a new problem, can I replace it easy enough or should I take it to someone that really knows what they are doing?

I foudn this in anther forum:
I have an ASUS motherboard P5E3 Premium. The audio that came with it was the Sound Max audio. I also noticed abnormal sounds coming from the speakers. They included sounds during hard drive activity and also with mouse movement. They were not loud but noticable. I searched all over the web but didn't find the answer. I stumbled across the fix myself. I also have vista-64. In the sound control panel > speaker properties > levels... there is a pc beep slide bar. I noticed that if it is disabled then the abnormal sound went away completely. Problem solved. Hope this helps.

    I believe I have the same problem, but I'm running windows 7. I can't find the speaker properties, and therefore the "pc beep slide bar". Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

If you have low output from computer and turn volume on speakers all way up you will get noise. You must use Control Panel Audio controls to turn up volume and turn down volume on speakers.
Are they powered speakers? Same noise on headphones?
If you need good quality sound I highly recommend the Xonar D2 sound card - the quality improvement is amazing even using small PC speakers! You would not beleive your mp3s could sound so good!

When I turned on the power for my 'Logitech X-240' speakers, there was a loud static noise coming from the speakers. I unplugged the speakers from the subwoofer, and as I began to plug them back...


clean the dust from your computer dust causes static which causes your computer to overheat and all sorts of problems
be sure to wear an anti static earth strap before touching anything inside your computer try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the CPU central processing unit and your SOUND CARD dust causes static to build up in a computer causing it to overheat any many other problems
hope this helps

One of the speakers is making a static noise when I turn on the organ . Model #CTK-900 . Thanks Heather


It sounds like the organ and the computer's speakers power source is on the same circuit. I would suggest purchasing a outlet strip that has noise reduction/surge protection, and plugging the speakers power source into it.

Left Speaker Jack only produces static


Hi!

That is probably happened to an aging speaker.

Consider buying a new one or try to rewire the coil inside the speaker magnet.

The speakers are making a very scratchy noise. They are hooked up to my desktop computer. When first purchased last year, they sounded quite good. Now, they are very scratchy and not on high volume.


Do you by any chance have any other wireless device like a cell phone near the speakers when you hear this?

Any kind of device that has a magnet field will cause scratching sounds on the speakers. I discovered this quite by accident with my old Boost mobile phone.

Static noise in Yamaha HS50 monitor


Sounds like the voice coil is damaged on the woofer. If you GENTLY press in on the woofer cone, and release, you should not hear any scratching noise. If you hear noise, the woofer needs replacement.

Static noise coming out of speakers


What sort of computer do you have? Is it a laptop or desktop? Many laptops have this problem and it is quite widespread in laptops. The crackling or humming noise could be a result of interference from the mains power signal.

If it's a laptop, try running it on battery alone (take out the mains power cord). My laptop has this kind of noise in speakers when running on mains electrical supply, but it goes away like magic when I run it on battery.

A more long-term solution is to buy a 'Ground Loop Isolator' and insert it between your computer and the speakers/earphones. They are quite cheap and you could get it for under £10. It removes all static noise and you'll hear crystal clear sound.

The static is probably coming from the computer sound card itself. Turn the volume down on the computer mixer it should limit the static you are hearing.
