HELP! How do I get rid of this speaker noise???
I have a problem! I got some brand new G4 Rokit 5 speakers for christmas, and when they are connected to the PC, it produces a crackling white noise, almost sounding like rubbing two balloons together.
These are the details:
I am using a custom-built computer, which has a bluetooth mouse and keyboard, ethernet cable to a wifi hotspot and an external hard-drive.
There is NO NOISE when I connect the same speakers to my Windows Surface Laptop.
All the drivers are updated.
I have tried only plugging in one speaker and the power for the pc into the same pair of sockets (two sockets as a pair which connect to the mains). This does NOT get rid of the noise.
The noise only starts once the computer has gotten just over halfway through starting up.
There is NO NOISE through headphones, or through my old speakers which I used to use. This suggests that the jack ports are fine.
The noise seems to change slightly when I use more of the computer’s processing power.
When I place my finger on the 3.5mm jack, there is a low humming sound, suggesting it’s very sensitive.
I have purchased a ground loop, but if that doesn’t work, what should I do??? The speakers are fine, but my computer is obviously causing the noise problem. Any replies would be GREATLY appreciated!
