Speakers Buzzing Whilst Playing Music

Okay well, I bought this system yesterday and after fixing it up properly to my computer and getting past a few minor problems it was working great.

However after a while i noticed that my speakers started to buzz whilst playing music, now, I'm not playing my music loud at all it's less than a quarter of the way but the speakers still buzz..

Any ideas?

Those speakers are not magnetically shielded, shielded speakers resist buzzing caused by monitors. Just about any decent computer speakers on the market today are shielded, and will most likely state that on the box. Apart from moving the speakers farther away from the monitor, there is little you can do to avoid this interference.

I have this constant buzz from the speakers...I notice it less when music is playing but it is still there. what can I do?


Make sure that there are no magnetic interference to the speakers. Its should be because the speakers are kept near some electronic or magnetic device...

Just try moving the speakers and notice if there is a change in the buzzing, if yes... then its definitely some interference on them.

Get back to me if that does not resolve it.

New speakers do not work. Lime green cable


Re-starting the PC won't do anything for the speakers. The PC can't see them! What it can see is the sound device, card or on-board chip. If you had a previous pair of speakers working on the same connection, it seems unlikely that your sound device is to blame. Try slowly removing and re-inserting the plug a few times whilst some music is playing to see if the sound suddenly comes on. Some of these plugs are not too good at making connection! If this is unsuccessful get back and I will take you thro' proceedure to check your sound device. Ian. P.S. Take it the power light is on the speakers?

No sound when playing dvd from speaker system


I recommend going to the sound icon on bottom of main screen, right click, go to the properties and settings. Make sure the system is set for the same amount of speakers as you have. You can also use the test button and see if the settings are correct.
Make sure you are using the correct audio decoder or ac3 filter

No Sound Whatsoever, Either From Speakers or Woofer


Disconnect the cable from the laptop and try to get sound out from the laptop via speakers or headphones, have a look around the sound settings.

Speakers emitting a buzzing sound too frequently to ignore


There may be some sort of electrical device like a mobile phone or something that is near the base unit of the speakerset... try clearing the space around them.. or else it might be cuz of a loose connection... check n reseat all the cables & hopfully the problem will sort out...

No sign of life in external notebook speakers


  1. If the powerlight is turning on some times and off sometimes, Then it may be a problem with the powersupply connected to the speakers. Check it.
  2. If the speakers are on and are not playing, Then try playing some music through alternate source like ipod,walkman etc.If the speakers are playing with alternate music source, The try reinstalling the audio drivers of your note book.
  3. If not then your speakers might have fried up due to some reason.

Speakers fade in and out when listening to music


ensure all connectors are properly inserted, then if you have a speaker mounted volume control, then run it back and forth rapidly about 100 times with power off. this will allow the tiny copper "wipers" contacts to brush off any accumulated dust.
