I just bought some usb powered speakers because my new motherboards speakers output will only play at a whisper, well the speakers seem to work fine but there is this annoying buzz in the background that gets louder if I turn it up, it seems louder when a web page or another program is running. not sure what the problem is.

You sure the connection to the PC is in the right slot (green) and in all the way?

Sounds (no pun intended) like a poor connection to me.

I suggest trying the speakers on something else (.mp3 player, etc.) to see if the speakers are the problem. I would also try a set of headphones on the connection which you plug the speakers into on the system.

That should help define the problem.

Is this a laptop or desktop? The first thing to do is check the sound drivers and reload or update them. Is the hum present when playing music or when not in use but the volume control isn't muted? It could also be a bad connection as Louis indicated

Well...that doesn't say much about the speakers themselves.

well the speakers arnt top price audio equipment but the still shouldnt buzz, I wouldnt think the speakers would make a sound at all if there were no sound going to them to amplify. I tried the speakers on another computer and there is no static or "buzz"on them there.

Other reasons speakers buzz is EMI or dirty power. You haven't looped the power cord or have something else near causing EMI?

This sometimes happens when your microphone is enabled on full volume even when there is no microphone plugged in. Try this; go to Volume Control and mute the microphone, then tell us if the problem still persists. :thumbsup:

no muteing it didnt work but the buzz goes away for a split second when I open or close a web page, I tried moveing the speakers around thinking them being too close to the monitors was causeing it but that didnt help either.
