There is an internal computer hum that I can't seem to get off the sound card. It comes through speakers and headphones. When I record it also records. I've tried grounding my system. I've tried moving cables so they dont' cross. But it won't go away. Is it the sound card or driver? I have the Maya 44 USB

The headphone jack has a switch in it to disable the speakers when the headphones are plugged in. This switch has stopped functionong. Look in the jack eith a magnafying glass to see if there may be lint or some other object holding the switch open when the headphones are not plugged in. Otherwise it's time to replace the jack.
ibm sound card is not faulty, because you are getting sound with your head phone. The head phone jack have two functions 1. to give output to head phone 2. to disconnect internal speakers when you plug in head phone. The jack for headphone in normal position not give connectivity to internal speakers. SOLUTION : REPLACE THE HEADPHONE JACK. I think it will help you.
if even the Windows 7 driver for the sound card did not fix it, try to uninstall the audio driver, then let Windows try to detect and install a native driver if available. Then click START, type services.msc in the Search box, then click Services.msc from the results. From there, look for the Windows Audio service, double-click it and make sure the Startup Type is set to Automatic and click the Start button. Restart the computer, open the audio properties, make sure the correct Playback device is selected. If you are using internal speakers for a laptop or external speakers for desktops, select Speakers/Headphones, click Set Default. Then test the audio of your system. Hope this helps.
It sounds like the audio jack itself has internal damage. Depending on how it is mounted on your laptop case, or possibly on an internal circuit board inside the laptop; it might be possible to repair the jack or replace with a new 1/8" audio jack. Some soldering skill may be required after disassembling the laptop and getting access to the jack.
i got the same probem and i am trying to find the solution. it could be that your sound system is different and the right driver is not installed. do you know what is the exact model of the sound card installed as per the laptop specs?
are you hooking up the headphone jack to the unit and not the ibook? When I hook inspire to my mac, the output comes from the unit, not the computer through the unit's headphone jack or the speaker output. Also make sure the volume is up and no channels are muted.
Check your audio settings to make sure that it's going to the right driver.
goto: start -> control panel -> sound and audio devices
out of the 5 tabs, you'll want to pay attention to 2 of them, these are the "audio" and "voice" tabs. Make sure that your speakers on are the external sound system's drivers and not your internal sound card. (Basically, make your sound playback the same as your sound recording)
