    I have on board sound and no matter what I plug into it I get a buzzing hissing sound. Is there any way to fix this or am I going to need to buy a sound card? Thank you for your help in advance!

    Hi mdkuni...

    First thing I would do is download the latest driver for your card and install it.

    One thing you said:
    "no matter what I plug into it I get a buzzing hissing sound"
    Does the noise happen when you plug in an axillary devise...
    Or all sound coming from the computer?

    Try Start>Run>sndvol32
    Use advanced view so you can see all of the sliders.
    Try muting PC Speaker and if you don't use a mic, then mute Mic also.

    Make sure there are no other electronic devices next to the speakers, like cell phones and such. Second, make sure that the connection to the speakers is plugged in all the way.

    I got some gay obvious advice, but it is possible you have the volume turned up to high on your windows.

    Thanks for all of your advice! I went into the advanced volume settings like true_caucasi said and I muted the mic, and all of the hissing and buzzing was gone! The speakers work great now! Thanks again!
