I have an audigy 2 and the creative 6.1 speaker system. I usually leave my computer on, and I can hear sometimes some noises. I'm going to see if I still have any warranty on any of them (less than 2 years old).

The connections are fine, I checked out most of the options on volume control. I don't know if I have a voltage interference, but I use a power surge.

Any ideas?

Hi - Yes, it does sound like interference. What sort of noises are you hearing? And how loud are they? Does the noise increase if you turn up the volume or decrease if you turn the volume down low (may sound like a silly question)?

More info please. Does it sound like a:

Pop?
Crackle?
Squeal?

One other thing. Did you move the speakers any time recently?

It's like a pop.

I have been moving around the cpu for fresh air, but last weekend I was reconnecting the cables to the subwoofer, when it happened again.

Interesting. When you say it made the same noise when you were reconnecting the subwoofer speaker cable, at what point did it pop? Have you tried powering down, disconnecting the cables and then reconnecting them with the power still off?

Was the popping happening before you started moving things around?

I connected all the speakers, then made a basic configuration. Nothing happened here.

After a little while, the pop came out. I happens randomly, even if the computer is idle.
