Windows 7: My earbuds making a low noise when connected to, or touching, the PC

Earbuds making a low noise when connected to, or touching, the PC

I bought a pair of earphones and it's working perfectly. However When I connect it to my PC it makes a low buzzing sound. The same thing happens when the jack touches any part of the computer where there's metal (e.g. the chassis, hard drive, etc.) even if the computer is turned off (but plugged in). The weirdest part is that the buzz stops only when I touch any metallic part of the computer and when I release, it starts again.

Some help would be appreciated

Sounds like a ground problem.

Check all plugs and power cable's for the ground pin, If it's damaged or missing replace it.

I am talking about the power cord, 120 volt cord that plugs in the wall not your headphone cord.

PSU making noise!
My PSU just started making a noise, like if something's touching the fan. It's a different computer from the one in my specs. It's a sturdy black one, however this PC has no case and the PSU is positioned in a way that the fan is on top and sucks in air, so a lot of dust goes in. Since September it...
