if it is a powered sub you should lift the ground. you can do this by adding a three prong to two prong adapter. you know, like when you go to plug something in and the cord your plugging in has three prongs and the outlet your plugging in to only has two. it doesn't have the hole for the ground so you go get a little grey adapter that has three holes on one side and two prongs or tabs on the other.if that doesn't take the hum out (actually, is keeping the hum from getting in) you have a problem with the amplifier.

Is your question :"Is it possible to connedct a set of speakers to my PC"? Yes it is possible. Anything is possible, my friend!
Your speakers look like mine though I have not checked the model number. If you have a mini banana stereo plug on the speakers, plug it into the same coilor jack on your PC. You will need a power supply of appropriate sized. connect the little speakers as appropriate and you should be in business.
let me know what happens

I just took my sub apart and found that the surround on the driver speaker inside the sub was totally crumbled and lying in pieces throughout the sub box.
I'm looking around now for specs on the sub speaker so I can find a replacement.

Sounds like bleed from other cables. Run your audio away from other cabling such as power. It also may be from a cheap power strip or another device sharing a cheap power strip with the speaker system. Lastly, it's possible it could be coming from you sound card, so try another set of speakers (or headphones) to see if it's coming from inside the PC.

Hmmm I just got the same problem. They worked fine on my old Dell desktop but when I plugged them in to my son's old Dell PC (maybe 1 year newer than my old one) they all hum like crazy - as you say even if it's just the power plugged in and nothing else. Yes it does have the original power supply. I get no music (but still it hums) from digital out/in but when I switch to analog out/in I hear the music and it still hums, plus the sound is distorted. Wierd.
