    PLEASE HELP
    My computer is a Dell laptop and uses Windows 7. A while ago, I noticed that whenever it is on, it makes a mumbling sound, like very soft voices. At different times the sound is louder, enough that I can make out words, and it appears to be TV or a talk show, even with advertisements. It doesn't matter what speakers or volume I have my computer at, the sound is not affected. If I play something like a youtube vid or a DVD, there is no effect on the noise, I have to turn the volume up to drown it out. My computer does not show it is connected to any other wireless network but my own. I have never had cable, however my house does have a dish satellite on it from previous residents. It is noticeable with headphones, but it may play without headphones lower than I can hear. I do not know if this is a problem with my computer or network, and suspect there is a simple solution, but it is beyond my comprehension. Please help?

    hello AVI

    While minds better then mine come to your aid here know this-

    Almost any device with a speaker placed in a high enough voltage electro magnetic field that is also a voice signal can be over loaded by that voice signal and be heard, some times real load.

    once in a parking lot, i was listening to a CD in my SUV, suddenly huge loud voice guy is on my CD player talking about baby food, as i look in rear view i see this small truck with a huge pigtail CB (shortwave?) radio antenna on truck roof and guy in front seat is hanging up a CB mike. long to short this guy had a huge against the law high power/wattage CB rig in truck, this was some illegal hobby of his. he said it could even overwhelm a cell phone.
    make sure your sat dish is not powered to something,
    like your 120 line (US), as well a electrician could not hurt as well.

    Also you may be getting a local talk am station on computer-its possible:eek:

    I don't have the brains god gave a monkey wrench but think
    this video shows good example of what is happening to you.
    PS it seems the secret to making this thing is a extra non light emitting polarization diode which make all voltage in the phone signal move towards the led.

    ALSO I just remembered, if a local station has a directional antenna, that can blast your equipment (AND YOU) -
    such a antenna is beamed and directional as opposed to 360 spread, see if you can get same interference effect off another device like a hearing aid, old TV without digital antenna.
    also such a blast has lowered many a house market value
    if you live in a well educated (UK) area and they check for such things. IN USA you can call FCC, but if its off a cell phone tower, there's a 250.00 fine for even contesting its presence, yep, go to court, pay for a hearing, get a big fine for even trying. a guy told me that and i thought him nuts, till i looked it up, cell company folks seemed to think someone might think those towers a bad idea some day, so they rigged complaints before they even started, there a great you tube about a community that
    won tho, think it was the double cancer out break that
    got things going, but this was in modern civilization
    the UK.
