external altec lansing speakers keep making high Pitched Noise

I bought this speakers a while ago for my older computer and recently i bought this new hp so im using them on my new hp desktop and ever since i bought the speakers they have allways made this high pitched noise .Now my HDD makes the same high pitched noise but not as loud as my speakers make it i feel like the speakers are just transmitting the sound tha the HDD is making but just alot louder?

Thanks for any help in advanced

Thats easy to determine if the speakers are causing it or the hard drive is generating the noise, power off the speakers and see if the hard drive's noise goes away.

I would suspect its the hard drive.

Yes the Hdd makes the high Pitched sound when the speakers are disconnected but not as loud as the speakers make it.It might just be my cheap speakers ?And my HDD

I would call HP and get the drive replaced under warranty. I've had "cheap" OEM drives that were noisy and it won't get any better.

As far as the speakers, it's whether you want to put up with the noise or not.

I had the same problem

I had the same problem. My wifi transmitter was too close to the speaker on the floor. When I moved it away the drumming stopped.

The weird thing is, it only makes the noise when I am playing a game, for instance if I tab out, the noise will stop and if I tab in it will start again. I've mainly...

Altec Lansing in-built Speakers not working?
Okay. In my HP-Pavilion dv5000 (dv5201) it has Altec Lansing speakers, and I can't find any drivers. I had to clean install 7 because my sister isn't smart, and installed Mandriva over XP. I don't even know it's model, because Win7 doesn't recognise it. I installed all but the language updates,...

Drivers for Altec Lansing ACS595 speakers
Still got my old Altec Lansings from the last millenium. They still sound awesome. I bargained with Dell when I bought my first ever PC and they upgraded the speakers to get the sale. So glad I managed to squeeze that one last deal out of them, these speakers sound great and have served me well...
