Question about HP Pavilion Media Center a1330n - AMD Athlon 64 2.4GHz Desktop Computer (Open Box Product, Limited Avai... (EL466AAABAOB)
I have a very frustrating situation. Which is, I have been unable to resolve a grounding problem which results in a low-pitch humm when I connect my pc to my stereo system using an audio cable. It does NOT occur when I connect my iPod to the stereo using the same cable. There is no humm when I normally play audio on my pc. I have an HP Pavilion (Media edition) and a Pioneer stereo. I connect to the “CD” bank on the stereo since that is (presumably) “digital”. I have sent the signal from the PC to a radio via a wireless FM transmitter and then connected it to the stereo and there is no humm. Therefore, I believe it’s a ground fault from the “hard-wire” connection. I have done the following:
This ground loop isolator from Radio Shack was suggested when I did a search:
It says it has the 1/8 jack adapter, so it should plug right in!
I'd be curious to hear about the results if you try it.
