If the Speakers are too close to the Monitor it can create feed back in them hence the buzzing.

Also some times the plug in jack becomes touchy, jiggle it a bit?

Try the Windows XP Sound Troubleshooter.

Budapest has a Great suggestion if you followed what cryptodan and I said about making sure the Plug in and position of the Speakers are not causing a Hardware problem to your Machine.

If the Machine is just 4 months old, a trip back to the Suppliers would cost you nothing? It is under Warrantee and interferring with that can sometimes Void the Warrantee?

Think about it?
