    It is a constant static noise, starts when i start to the time I shut down. When I go to a page on the web and it has live video feed I still can here the static in the background. i have AverTV USB but i have disconnected that and it still has static.

    Re: Speaker Noise

    If you have an amplifier in the speakers (and you probably have - in that speaker that is connected to power adapter), the problem is a cable connecting the amplifier with the sound card in your computer. If the cable is unshielded, it can receive 60 Hz ground noise from electric circuits (50 Hz in Europe). Try to acquire a shielded cable (the best solution) or at least move your audio cable away from power cables and in any case don't make them run along each other.

    You might also check the speaker connection to the sound card. If it's been bumped or jiggled that can cause it to "short" (for lack of a better term) and cause the static that you hear.

    I opened the case and there is two sets of wires coming off the sound card and one goes to one of my CD's and the other goes to the other CD/DVD. i disconnected the wire to one of them and the static has gone away. i will replace that sound cable.

    Those are the wires that allow the sound from the CD & DVD drives to get to the speakers. Try reseating the one that you pulled. It may just have been loose.
