Powered Speakers?

by TheChas In reply to speakers

My best guess is that you have a power supply fault in the speakers either placing a DC voltage on the output jack, or setting up some sort of ground loop.

It is possible that there is a problem with the line out circuit on the motherboard. This can get damaged if you use unpowered speakers with most "modern" sound cards. The line out circuit is not really capable of driving headphones let alone speakers.
