    I'm kind of lost, i've tried everything i can to my knowledge.

    It doesn't happen always, only when my computer emits a noise such as somebody talking in skype or music. When the computer is meant to be silent, it stays silent. When it is meant to emit sounds it emits the usual sounds but then emits this loud static along with the sound.

    It's not the speakers because i had the same problem with my previous ones.
    My drivers are all up to date and i have no sound card.
    It's not my rear audio jack because when i place the speakers in my headphones slot, it still emits the same noise.
    I'm not sure if it is interference because i don't have anything near my computer or subwoofer other than a lamp.
    Could the computer be interfering with subwoofer/speakers?

    I'm really lost and this has been a very annoying problem...

    Any thoughts?

    Hi and welcome to TSG.

    Is the subwoofer part of your PC audio setup or from a stereo system nearby?

    I would firstly try disconnecting and/or moving the subwoofer well away firstly to see if the problem persists. The subwoofer will have magnets in it which may cause mutual induction across the speaker wires if they are not well shielded (which they typically aren't).

    Check where all your speaker cables are and ensure they are not near other speakers, magnets or power sockets / cables if possible.

    Hello and thanks for the warm welcome!

    The subwoofer is part of the PC audio setup, i purchased it with my speakers.

    I know it is not the subwoofer because the problem occurred with my old speakers which did not have a subwoofer to accompany it.

    I will attempt to move around my speaker cables, hopefully that will do the trick.

    Also, i asked this question on Reddit and a user suggested that it could be a bad filter cap in my power supply. Could that be true?

    Great, I hate seeing computers with no protection. Remember, use only one Anti-Virus program on your computer at a time. If you ever want to try another one you must first uninstall the old one as they really don't like each other...lol.

    The other programs listed run well with all Virus programs and should be updated and ran weekly:)

    Thanks!

    Well the sound card i was given ended up not fitting but when i set my cpu back up I no longer had any static.

    Not sure what the problem was if anyone stumbles upon this thread in the future.

    Thanks Ron and Tanis for responding!
