Hi. My desktop has been making weird "wave/static" sounds for some reason. Even when no program (with audio) is on, you'd hear it. Anyone have any idea what this is all about? And how to resolve it?

Thanks!

I get that sound sometimes too, and I just give my computer a shove and it stops. I think that it has something to do with the power source fan...

Maybe it is that the audio out connection is loose then it sort of vibrates from the fans in the tower and u hear the soft noise. When u r running with sound u don't hear anything cause if it faint and soft in the back ground.
I don't really know of a way to stop it. maybe try and wipe the audio conector??

It comes from the speaker. Sorry if i confused you. It's not from the CPU, no, from the speakers. Like i said, it sounds like, AM radio frequency or whatever, but more subtle.
