    I wasn't sure if posting in correct place again... Sorry.

    There is a steady "click, click, click" sound coming from my speakers. Anyone know what it is? It's doing it right now as I'm online.

    Could be a click sound generated by an event happening
    on your computer. When does it happen? Or some kind
    of power surge is being picked up and your are hearing
    it through the speakers. Check the first situation by
    going to your sound scheme in windows and seeing
    if some event on your computer is causing the clicks.
    The second is simple, plug everything into surge
    protected multi-outlet devices. well, that could be
    a place to start for you...

    Very difficult to diagnose without any system specs.
    Usually, updating soundcard & videocard drivers fixes the problem. Or if they're onboard chips, updating the motherboard chipset drivers.

    Thanks for the link. I will check into it more. Actually, we recently installed a new soundcard, so that atleast won't be the problem, I hope. I shut down since this afternoon and now it isn't making that sound.
