Speakers Make a Very Loud Noise that Increases

I have the Harman Kardon Speakers that stopped working after I did the latest Micro Soft Update. When I turn on the speakers there is a buzzing sound that gets very, very loud within seconds.

Can you help me?

Speaker amplifier chip may leaky or damage
you are using improper sound driver
check driver status in your computer device manager or just typing dxdiag on run in start menu, check status of sound driver installation

Whenever the speakers are turned on there is a loud continuous tone that starts low and gets higher. How do I make it stop?

Hi. Regarding your issue, there might be a problem with the cable or the jack coming from the speaker itself. Better to have the speaker checked to its manufacturer, or have it replaced for you not to hear any annoying noise no more.

Older Harman Kardon computer speakers have loud hum

The hum (50 or 60 Hz) is caused by the AC power getting into the entry point of the amplifier. Either the filtering capacitors from the powersource of the speakers have dried up - replace them - or there is a short in the cables.
There is another possibility: if you have kicked the subwoofer  box its transformer might have slipped from its fixings and now is touching the subwoofer speaker frame.
The only way to find which is to open the cases.

Loud noise feedback in subwoofer

Try another boosted speaker set. Then check.
Something is probably wrong in the speakers, not worth fixing...they are pretty cheap to buy.

Speakers making loud pitchy noise

If they are computer speakers try this: (remember i am doing this from a windows vista) on the bottom right hand of the screen there should be a volume key right click on it and click on playback devices then right click on your speakers and click properties and go to levels and turn down the volume from there and see does that work... hope this helps.

Wow, general problem here, but the most near your problem could be, power failure, or the Power adapter is bad, or a energy failure at home, time to buy a new adapter.
