I've had my speakers for over 2 years and they've worked brilliantly up until recently. The other day when playing a video on a website my sound suddenly went very loud and turning the dial on the central speakers didn't do anything at all. Instead I had to lower the volume of my computer.
If that wasn't bad enough, now when I turn the dial it makes a strange noise through all of the speakers - like the sound they make when you touch a microphone or breathe on it...it also makes that sound randomly when I have the speakers on.
Also, when having the speakers on, they will go silent randomly for anywhere between seconds and minutes before it comes back on, making the strange noise before it does. Other than the volume issues and the strange noise, playback is fine - it's not distorted in any way, just loud.
I've tried reinstalling drivers and checking everything is plugged in OK, under the advice of computer savvy friends, but nothing has helped. Any ideas?

Re: Loud and strange noises
The built-in speaker amp or the volume switch may be going bad on you. A quick test is to disconnect the speaker set and replace it with a headphone or another working speaker set. If it behaves normally then the problem is in your original speakers, if not then you may have software driver issues or less likely an issue with the sound card. Let us know what you find out.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

check all speaker wires from the receiver end and the speaker ends. Just the smallest strand of copper could be touching something it should not be touching. Make sure all copper is in the speaker post and not hanging out. The receiver is getting a short and shutting off to protect it self. This could have happened since you were just plugging things in.
