Loud static burst when shutting down

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi there.
Ive had this problem for a while now, but i really want to deal with it.
Whenever i shut down my computer, just as the monitors display turns off, my speakers give off a horrible static burst that can last from 1-3 seconds. It really *****s me up when im not expecting it tongue.gif

Before, when i had a brandless PSU and cheap speakers, i thought that would be the sole cause of the burst, but since christmas, ive upgraded my PSU to an Antec TP-750 and my speakers to some Creative T3130s, but I still get it.

I was sure that it would go away seeing as my speakers plug into the wall now instead of being USB powered.
Im using the onboard audio on my sabertooth 990fx, and it doesnt always happen.

Any ideas on why this is happening or whats going on would be great.
Thanks!

its a grounding issue, if you get a thingy ( see pic ) and eliminate the ground, it often takes care of static issues in poorly grounded systems.

you probably have one laying around the house, and it can't hurt to try.

I say just deal with it. Nearly every setup i've owned has had some sort of a pop when powering up or powering down.

Well i will say it again, idk what the CAUSE is, but you could dampen the harshness by turning down your speakers before shutting down, or using your speakers as volume controll rather than the computer.

I dont think it has anything to do with safe mode, its just after the PC has powered down, theres a horrible loud fizz from my speakers

I could understand a pop as the sub turned off, because i get that anyway tongue.gif

But if im not the only one with it, that eases my mind a bit smile.gif
