My speakers are always buzzing on my Vista machine even though there is no program emitting sound through the speakers. It's like the speakers are always on. I have to manually unplug them for the sound to go away. Is this a compatibility issue with Vista?
I use an Altec Lansing external speakers. They are a bit older and I was using them before on my XP machine.

I had a similar problem, but mine was like a dull popping sound. It turned out to be some radio interference from a HAM radio. Have a look around and see if there are and CB or UHF radio antenna in your area. I have sinced moved from this area and the popping has gone.

Move the speakers as far away from the monitor as possible. If the speaker wire is tangled up with the rest of the cords in back of your desk, try running them separate. Try the speaker power plug in a different outlet than the other stuff
