Laptop noise interference

My Advent 7203 has some noise interference- there is a static sound which is there when I'm not playing anything, not using the speakers at all. Even when I mute the sound or disable the speakers the static sound is still there. Also, there is a red light emitting from the headphones port, and I have no idea why. Could anyone help me please? It would be greatly appreciated.

    The Device Manager says that I have problems with the Network Adapters 6TO4 and Isatap 404675BF-A373-46CB-851A-167A354E2290. It says it is because Windows can't load the drivers required- Code 31. What do I do now?

I've had this problem on my Amilo laptop for about three years - until today. Loadsa intermittent background noise from the headphone output.
Solution:
double clicked the Loudspeaker icon to bring up the soundcard mixer.
1. muted the cd input. this helped, but still 80% of noise left.
2. clicked on properties, checked the "pc beep" box to add it to the mixer.
muted this channel and - hey presto, amazing silence. i'm in heaven, i can actually listed to music now without deafening "whirr, crackle, crunch, buzz"etc. during every pause.
good luck!!!

Hi,
heres how you resolve your problems.
Go into My Computer/Control Panel/system/Device manager. on the conflicting devices, click to remove or uninstall. then exit device manager. next go to add new hardware wizard, let windows automatically detect your hardware, and install the drivers. if you still have conflicts after this. download the problem drivers, from another source if possible.

Thankyou Mike @ compurepair.

Hi,
This appears to be a problem with the soundcard or device. The mic/headphone/speakers are all usually associated with the sound card. you may have had a virus attack or problems with the items drivers. Check the device has no problems:- My Computer/Control Panel/System/Device Manager ( Yellow Exclamation ) denotes Problem. Alternatively, is to disable the Mic Input Via the sound cards control Panel.

Thankyou for using Fixya.

Mike @ compurepair.

It sounds like a cracked speaker or no good anymore. You can buy a new set of speakers for it not that hard to change out. Also check the volume level and see if still does the carckling noise when turned down. Thanks for using FixYa!
