Windows 7: Speaker buzzing

Speaker buzzing

For some reason, the speakers of my computer buzzes, and the buzzing noise is sometimes different depending on what I'm doing. It makes the most noise when read/write on the HDD. The noises are not that loud, it just is starting to annoy me. It most likely isn't a sound card/motherboard problem because when I use my headphones, it doesn't buzz. This happened on my old computer when I used these speakers. These are USB powered speakers that is the old Wal-Mart brand I bought in about 2008.
(The noises was always there and I am just now annoyed by it)

Hi do you have another set of speakers that you could test with or from a friend or relative?

I have tried my headphones and it doesn't have a buzz. It doesn't matter if I use the front or back port. One interesting thing, for some reason, if I touch the metal part of the audio plug, I used to be able to hear a radio broadcast. But that doesn't happen here in Korea.

sorry i should have read your post more carefully. if these speakers did the same on your old computer and on the newer computer most likely the speakers are your problem.

Is it safe to use though? I read before that it may be the ground of the audio connection getting interfered by another cable. It didn't say that it is necessarily harmful. I'm just not sure about if my problem is that.

Maybe you can just use a converter like iPhone USB power adapter (USB to mains power) and see if it corrects.

Well, it seems that the power source doesn't matter. Maybe the audio cable is badly insulated/shielded? If it is safe to run it like this, I am ok about keeping it like this.

I don't believe it will hurt the computer but can pick up speakers fairly cheap

Well, I guess I'll get new speakers when I have the chance to.

Just my two cents worth mate it could be just the voice coils within the speaker have taken a hiding (electronically) - the speakers dropped (physical misalignment of the coils) or just old age


PS Should have mentioned though not with piezoelectric types

Right speaker thinks he's a left speaker
If the volume is low everything works fine, but once you turn it up using the volume button, the left speaker stops working. This only happens when I use the button, and not when I adjust the system sound. I tested it with the audio configuration, and I can hear what's supposed to be the left...
