Question Speakers noise

On Tuesday I was playing a game (not any game, MAX PAYNE!!!),
and when I quit the game I realized the speakers are making a
strange noise (quiet, but still...).
Anyway, at the time I was playing there was a cellular phone and
a wireless phone next to the computer. But since then the noise
doesn't stop unless I mute the speakers or turn them off!
I have nothing next to the computer now that works on radio waves
or whatever, so what's wrong?

Microphone maybe?
If you have a Mic attached to the sound card, even if its turned off it can still cause interferance.

Try muting your mic as well, or you'll have to go for headphones

Phones only affect monitors and speakers when they're transceiving signals, and there's no lasting effect.

Maybe you could mute Mic, Line in and/or Phone.

You also get less distortion if your computer volume is quite high (not too high) and your speaker volume is quite low. That's assuming you have active speakers (you probably do).

Oh hehe I've just seen this. Have you got one of those connections from the CD to the soundcard, that all PCs used to have and now (annoyingly) don't?

*looks at volume control*
Volume control: quite high
Speakers volume: very low

my soundcard produces crackly noises when the volume goes too loud. i've sort of overcome it by turning the system volume really low and the speakers really high...
soundcard must be bust.

Well, you may have just outdone your card. I remember when my old sound blaster got old, it just started to play static at random times and intervals. It was irritating, and thats why I got rid of the thing. =)
