This is likely not it, but I had a friend who had made A program as a prank in which randomly blasted music with no way to turn it down (other than unplugging the speakers). I was just stating that to let you know that such a program is possible.

Just a thought, do you have a DSL connection? One other thing, are your speakers shielded? If it's a DSL connection, contact your DSL provider and ask for an RF filter to be placed on your DSL line. If not, see if changing the placement of your speakers changes the effect. Also make sure that there isn't a source of EMF close to your speakers.

Be (RF) Safe

How far are you from the nearest radio station? Depending on your soundcard or speaker amp you may be picking up radio transmissions from a loose cable or just poor shielding in the amp. The signal you pick up gets transferred to the PC speakers by 'crosstalk' and voila, you hear voices/music.

Check your volume controls and make sure any input you are not using is muted - particularly the 'mic' input as this is the most sensitive. Play around while listening to the music, you should be able to work out which device it's coming from.

To see all volume controls double-click your loadspeaker in the system tray then click Options>Properties and tick everything.

Or you could just be crazy. :thumbsup:
