Pardon me, but I have this sound, that is periodically being transmitted

from my speakers, Tic-Tic-aTic-Tic-Tic-aTic-


where its originating, is anybody's guess at this point.

it almost sounds as if something is shaking like the table the speakers are

on and and that it is like a speaker connection that is making sounds when the table shakes.

But of course that is not the case, . . it just sounds off, . . and I am not sure if its

one of those suppose to be funny pranks or is it actually indicative of some technical

feature gone awry, etc.

Is there any type of transmitter near the speakers or speaker wire? Cordless phone, cellular, etc..

Are the speakers being moved or vibrated when it happens? A truck going by? Someone hammering nails nearby?

Try moving the speakers to a location a few feet away. Does the problem persist?

dot dot dash is the letter 'U' in morse code. Does that have any significance to you :)

yes my disconnected lan line phone is there prepared for use only when I disconnect PC and then connect it, . .
but my cellular is usually nearby, . . . .

Ahhh, the morris code is definitely negative, . . not in that specific order etc.

that sound is a tickity tick tick , . . tickity tic tic, . . but is a sound like you

might find when you stroke a rasp file with a knife point etc.


there is no relation that would indicate a vibration from any external force.

One of the two speakers has been moved a distance using spliced speaker wire etc.

I did that to receive in mail signal and or Face Book chat signal, etc. needed for

messages coming from a friend in foreign country, when away from PC, . . there are two splices, hand wrapped together bare wires with scotch tape covering each, the speaker works well, . . also it is turned up to capacity,
and has remained that way, over the months I have used this type set up.


For the time being I will move the cell phone.

Hi -
Turn off, or better still, disconnect the speakers for half an hour, reboot the computer and see if there is still a noise -
Any rasping noise like that sounds more like H/D problems if there are no speakers connected at the time -

Good Luck -
EDIT -
I know you say <"It isn't the Hard Drive !"> but ... .....

OK, . . I am not sure why that will work but I'll try it , . .
the problem is this seems to happens when it feels like it, . . so we're gonna have to wait for results, . .

I know what the clack sound of a HD is like and have experienced it more than once, and it doesn't come through the speakers, etc., . . you still have my doubts there, . . also this has been re-occurring for several months, so, . . .

The noise occurred before I installed the audio device, . . but can you tell me about the

other devices ?
