    I have no applications running at all in Windows. I have the system sound muted, but I still have some sound coming out of the speakers. It sounds like some talk radio. I also have all networking disabled. I have no idea where this is coming from.

    How can I tell if any process on my computer is accessing the sound drivers?

    In some cases, if the speakers are cheaply made and not sheilded, they can acutally pickup radio waves (especially if you live near a radio tower). Does the "Talk radio" continue if the speakers are on, while the computer is off?

    Thanks, I had figured that out later in the day after bringing a radio nearby and finding the station. Could catch for knowing that right off though!
