I have no explanation why but for some reason right now and the past few times I have had no music coming from my speakers I hear what appears to be "background" noise that is coming from them, regardless of weather I have muted sound (mute keep on the keyboard) turn the volume up or down on my speakers (far as it will go). Is this normal, or do I have a virus & or keylogger?

I am running Windows 7 64bit (I can also install 32 bit if I so choose). The speakers I think are logitech, if that makes any difference.

so even if you turn the volume knob on the speakers all the way down you get a kind of hum coming from the speakers? does the hum increase/decrease in volume with the volume knob? what happens if you unplug the speaker wire from the computer? still hum? how old are the speakers?

Moving my iPhone close to some brands of computer speakers will cause the same problem for some reason. I was dumbfounded the first time it happened.

this happens with any cell phone and any unshielded speakers...the cellular radio causes interference (sounds like quickly galloping digital horses. bah dah dun bah dah dun)

Speakers are a couple months old (for me) as they were a graduation present and my old speakers were crackling and had some rips in the fabric.
