    Whenever my speakers are turned on, every so often the make a thud kind of noise. This also happens when something in the active window changes Eg submitting this post will cause the speakers to 'thud'.

    Ive tried re-installing the driver, reseating the card, moving it to a different slot and clean every connection on the speakers, but still it happens.

    Can anyone help?

    Make sure the microphone is muted and away from the monitor, clear audio cables away from the other cables.. My bet is a microphone to close to the monitor.
