Hello~

I use a Dell Dimension 4550, that is running XP, and I just recently upgraded my monitor to a LCD flat panel that is called 'DELL E228FPW, 22IN, 22.OVIS, OPTI/PWS/LAT' (that's what it's called on the invoice).

And ever since I installed this new monitor, there has been this buzzing sound coming from my speakers (it only does this when I turn the speakers on). This problem is disrupting our ability to use our internet answering machine program (we're on dial up), because the program ('Callwave') will record the messages, but you can barely hear the message through the buzzing sound.

What can I do?


Any help would be greatly appreciated. :thumbsup:

If possible move the speakers away from the monitor as much as possible. Route the speaker wires away from the monitor cable. Also double check that the speakers are in the correct ports of the computer

Woohoo! It worked! :thumbsup:

I moved the speakers' square plug thing into a different outlet and have routed the speaker wires away from the monitor.

You sir, are awesomeness incarnate. Thank you much! :huh:
