unwanted radio interference
Hi there - my laptop has recently started to emit a radio frequency and suddenly we hear voices coming out of nowhere ..I think it's AM frequency...it comes and goes..just a five second blast then silence,but it's definetly picking something up (which is a little annoying to say the least...)... does anyone know what's causing this and more importantly how to stop it??

lesthebest,
welcome to tech support guy,
.
are these voices telling you to send me money?
listen to them, listen to them! send lots!
.
seriously now, give us a bit more info:
- are you at all able to decipher what is being said?
- does it occur on a regular basis?
- just erratic times of the day?
- does it seem to be doing anything to your computer when this occurs?
- does it seem to just come from the speakers?
- do any cb-ers or ham operators live real close?

i used to play around with ham radio, had just finished building a new 'toy' and was trying it out at about 2 am or so one morning, scared the living bejesus out of my neighbor about a quarter mile away, his stereo was off but my voice was coming through his speakers, very loudly!

Unwanted radio interference
thanks for your email...it just happens ..no rhyme or reason...won't hear anything for an hour or so then all of a sudden you get a radio programe as clear as day ..generally some discussion ,it lasts for 5 seconds or so then all goes silent again...this can happen when the laptop is not being used,or in the middle of a powerpoint presentation..could it be the power cable ?
