Scratchy sound coming through speakers

By monsivaisd ·
I get a scratchy sound when ever I play anything. It started 2 weeks ago. I've pulled the sound card (creative live)from its slot and placed it on another to no avail. Any ideas? I'm I grounding out? if so how do I check. Better yet, how do I get rid of that awful scratchy sound?

Thanks,

Dan

Speakers are the weakest link in the whole sound food chain, and the most likely to fail.

Try using the speakers on another system, and see if the scratchy sound travels, or borrow a pair, and see if it disappears.

Also, check to make sure your speaker cables are not wrapped in, around, amongst, and etc with your power cords. If you don't have clean power, EMI can cause the scratchy sounds at the right frequency.

Other than that, time to upgrade to those super woofers, with sub base, and 57Mega Watts of power to go with the SB Live :)

EMI could be traveling through the speaker lines,check your lines and make sure that they are plugged in the right socket in the back of the computer,also make sure your speakers are not setting to close to each other or close to your monitor which will cause EMI to be transferred through your speakers.

Hi I had this problem and it was due to the drivers being upset by some other software that I had installed. I located the latest drivers and installed them that solved my sound problem.

Best Regards
