    i have two laptops connected through a mixer to a couple of speakers. i also have a digital projector connected. the sound from one of my laptops is distorted when i play mp3 music. also when i am using mains power on the same laptop there is background interference. ( i know, what a problem to have).
    can anyone help.

    Swap ports with your laptops. Take the one that's having trouble and plug it in the one that's not and see if it changes anythink.

    Pull the plug in and out of the mixer a couple of times and see if that might also fix it.

    I have had occasion where the connection wasn't "seated" properly or wasn't making contact all the way.

    How big of a mixer do you have? If you have more than a couple inputs on it, try one of the others (just to see if it works kind of thing).
