Well, the sound has happened for a while, I'm not sure if it made that noise from the beginning or not.

Hello and welcome Rayford mate best start new threads when you have problems as it can at times cause confusion on who is answering what and who

Anyway it does appear to me that if different speakers and/or microphone are being used and the noise is still there then there is possibly a problem with the socket contacts and/or the soldered joints for the socket to the motherboard or if the connections are in the front of the machine maybe the audio plug / socket header on the board itself.

That's o mate you just need one of those very bright LED torches to see inside the sockets and perhaps a magnifying glass - it could even be just down to wear and tear. I meant to mention to when looking at the header/s on the motherboard just check to see if the thing rocks slightly - may indicate a dry joint (solders come undone) and look for and caps that look suspect and any signs of scorching on the PCB

Thanks for helping me know what to check for, I know it used to not do this.. I figured out how to change my wifes computer to English from Chinese, , she is in China now and I needed a cheap way to talk with her, they can't use Yahoo over there anymore but QQ international works good for voice and video.. I am still going to get my computer fixed so I can use it because I am more familiar with it. thanks again.

Hmm sorry we couldn't get it fixed right away. It probably is something really quite simple but while I am thinking about it the buzzing is it around mains power supply frequency - usually around 50Hz? because a fault in the grounding system could possibly be another cause of the problem.
Just check that the motherboard is firmly grounded and the easiest way of doing that is to measure the resistance between the case, motherboard fixing screws, black leads on the 24 pin power plug and the third earth pin on the mains power lead. All you need is to unplug the power supply to get to the plugs' earth pin and use a (preferably) digital multimeter and set it to resistance and when you touch the mains earth pin and any of those connections I spoke of there should be a zero resistance. If there is resistance then something is quite wrong and could be the cause of the humming sound because a good ground connection usually stops any extraneous background mains hum from happening.

would it work to hook a wire from a case screw to a ground lug on the mother board? I have heard before that sometime a ground (loop) ,not sure what that is.. could make it do that,, it only does it when I hook up the mic, or if I turn the mic. volume up and especially the boost

Not really mate in fact that may even make another one if indeed a ground loop is what it is. A ground loop is best described here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ground_loop_(electricity) < if you look at Sources of ground current there are some simplistic pics and explanations of ground loops.

I used to tinker a lot with audio stuff in the past and especially with vacuum tubes and ground loops were always a problem especially with equipment that was plugged into an amplifier say phones speakers mikes etc etc I spent many an hour wiring grounds to those things so that there was only ever one ground point - typically at the incoming mains ground source. So in a nutshell you would be chasing ghosts.

Ha Ha. I guess I was looking for an easy way out.. when I get more time, I will take the covers off and see if I can find the culprit. thanks so much for your help and advice. be safe, Vernon
