Every so often my computer will have some audio playing in the back ground. Nothing will be running and it will just all the sudden you will start to hear cars or some people talking. Has anyone else had this problem before? If so how in the heck do i get it stop? Thank you for your help.

This sounds like it may be radio interference from a radio station, police broadcast or taxi broadcast.
Speakers have their own ferrite coil inside them and this would effectively make them miniature radios, however if the atmospheric conditions are right they'll start picking up and decoding public radio stations and on occasion private transmissions such as CB Radio or police/taxi radio.
Normally this is only a temporary problem as the atmospheric conditions change and the signals fade away.

I have heard this myself on a set of built-in monitor speakers that I no longer own and in their later life they quite regularly picked up what I later found out to be a foreign radio station. Same sort of idea as tuning across the MW/AM frequency on your radio after dark and being able to pick up foreign stations.
