Static noise coming out of speakers

I have a loud static noise coming out of my computer speakers. I know its not the speakers themselves. I plugged in head phones and the noise is still there. When I play music the static drowns out the music and the song sounds horrible in the background. What is this? Sound card?

    It is a desktop. It only does this every once and a while. Last time it did it , I banged on the side of the tower and it stopped. Doing it again though and banging is not helping. Yeah I know banging is not a technical fix lol but I always try it first!

    I have the same problem but I don't have a laptop. It's a desktop and the static changes when the computer does tasks, etc. The static is very loud and high pitched when it is initially started. This seems to prevent the monitor from capturing a signal and I must manually restart several times. The manual restarts are harming my system as sometimes things get lost or don't load properly. Someone told me to get a big magnet and try to **** out the static? Might that work?

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.

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

Turn off you computer and pull out your sound card if it is external. Then plug it back in the same hole. It may just be loose. If this does not help try another card. If you have a built in sound card try installing updated drivers for it from the manufacturers web site.

Hi!

That is probably happened to an aging speaker.

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

Scratching (static) noise coming from computer speakers


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.
