Humming from my PC Speakers?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

I have a rather old Logitech Z-2300 and was wondering why it hums while it's on. I have it connected to my motherboard's onboard soundcard. Is there a way to fix this, maybe a dedicated sound card?

 

Thanks.

It's a either a ground loop, which a cheater plug can fix, or an internal voltage issue, which a repair shop can probably trouble shoot. Although repair shops probably charge more per hour than your speakers are worth, unless you have a handy friend.

My son got those speakers.  They are great for the price.  Get a dedicated sound card.  One of those cheap mini DAC/Amp combo will make a huge difference.

My speakers would hum when I played games. The only way I was able to get rid of it was to use XLR wires. Which gets very expensive.

Quick easy thing to try is rerunning the cable so it doesn't go near any power cables basic audio cables have a bad habit of picking up interference from power cables and this sometimes fixes it. If not itt is more likely a grounding issue or something in the speakers.
