    What speakers... ? Are they built into the monitor, or are they seperate from the PC? Do you have other speakers to try? Do other speakers do the same thing?

Try headphones to see if the audio is the problem or the speakers as a first test.

If speakers have gotten wet or filled with dust/dirt could be the problem.

Wet is fatal, replace them.

Staticy in one channel

This is a loose connection and it could be the voice coil in the speaker, the terminals on the speaker, the connection at the terminals on the speaker, the wire going to the speaker, the connection at the amp, the internal connection in the amp, the actual parts on the circuit board of the amp, change the speaker connection at the amp
(switch right and left to see if it is outside the amp)
If not then you are looking at the amp being the problem.

Right speaker channel doesn't sound clear anymore

If it sounds like static, and the bass really effects the sound it is most likely going to blow.
I would suggest taking it easy on the volume or switching your volume settings so its more on the left speaker than that right, but still with sound coming out the right one. Just so you don't blow it as fast.

My kenwood car stereo went very staticy then quit working and it blinks "PROTECT" on the face

One of your speakers has gone bad. When this happens the speaker can become a short in the circuit. This can burn a circuit up. The radio enters protect mode to protect itself. Unplug a speaker one at a time with the radio turned off, turn the radio on, and see if it works, repeat this until it does work. When it does, you have found your bad speaker. It is possible more than one speaker is bad, so go ahead and test each one.
Alternatively, if you have a multimeter, set it to measure resistance and take a reading across the speakers terminals, if a speaker has no resistance, then it is bad, if it has a very large or infinite resistance then it is also bad. A normal car speaker should be somewhere around 2 ohms to 20 ohms, depending on size and make.

My 2008 Accent radio was working great last week. We had some bad snow this weekend. I went to turn on the radio on Monday and the radio was staticy and sounded like the speaker in the back was not...

Try checking the coax antenna wire coming out of the back of the radio. The antenna wire use to plug in, and I've had problems with them viberating out.

Speaker sounds very staticy

This is normally due to a bad connection, however it can also be caused by a blown speaker. replace with another speaker to see if the static is still there, if you still hear the static then the speaker is fine and the wire is broken somewhere, is the sound of static goes away then problem solved.

I output the sound to a Sony receiver. The sound was clear from the sound board, but now is staticy with faint sound. I have updated the driver . . . no change . . . and then restored the default . . ....

Make sure that the output (from sound card) is compatible with input of receiver. Most aux inputs on receivers are 1 volt peak to peak. Turntable and tape inputs are different.
