My Altec Lansing VS2621's are making an annoying buzzing sound when connected to my computer and other things!

I just have no idea what could be wrong! I made sure all the cables are plugged in properly, the speakers are connected to the wall socket firmly, I'm just so lost! mad.gif

I can still play music but it doesen't sound as 'full' as it does without the buzzing sound, it's just try me crazy! mad.gif

usually it means that there is not enough signal coming from your source, bump up the volume really high and then see if the noise persists. It could also be, but i doubt it, signal interference from UPS or wall sockets. and can you clarify what you mean by connecting the speakers to the wall sockets firmly?

Yeah, I just turned up the volume to the max and I can still here the buzzing sound, I meant that the plug isn't loose in anyway at all.

I'll go try out another wall outlet. thumb.gif

EDIT: Nope, tried a different outlet, same problem as before! sad-smiley-002.gif

It porbbly means a bad unit i would assume. The only thing to try now is connect it up to different things, like an ipod and see if it still makes the same noise

I've tried it with everything, it still does it! mad.gif

I've had these for like 3 years. sad-smiley-002.gif

Guess it's an excuse for a new set of speakers! biggrin.gif

Could be a ground loop, or the capacitors are dying on your speakers. If its the former, a cheater plug should work.

1. Plug your speakers into a portable mp3 player or something to see if they buzz while not connected to your computer. This will tell you if the problem is with your computer or the speakers.

2. Check that all Mic and Line-In inputs are muted or set to not output.

3. Make sure you computer volume control is set somewhere between about 70 and 90.

4. Verify that your computer audio is set to 2.0 or stereo for speaker output and that you have plugged your speakers into the green port.

5. Uninstall all existing software and drivers that you have for your sound card and download the newest version of drivers for it from your computer manufacturer's or motherboard's website. Do not use the sound card manufacturer's website for embedded chip drivers.
