    Buzzing speakers

    I just replaced my psu with a cheap 400w colorsit. Now when i turn on my speakers there is a constant buzzing from them. Apart from replacing the psu is there anything else I can try to stop the buzz?

    I am asumming that you have checked and double checked that all the connections are in place. Could interferance also play a factor here.

    Yeh I checked all the connections and everything seems to be seated ok. Tried plugging speakers in different plugs etc. Definitely seems to be down to the psu, was just wondering if anyone had experienced the same thing and found a cure.

    Probably because its not providing clean lines and has such creates interenance. Get a decent PSU and should solve it

    Cheap PSU's are money wasted I'm afraid. A decent one will last from one rig to the next until it's power is too low or it doesn't have enough connectors or the right connectors.

    Yes, there're a huge number of "anything else".

    Try reading through this thread and this one for various solutions. Your problems and theirs are actually the same, the sole difference is that they can detect their problems visually while you do so audibly.

    Don't waste money on a PSU, it could happen to be the problem but very rarely so, ~.001% chance of it being the case. Usually it happened when the PSU connections aren't good, little or no load on PSU outputs causing large oscillation feed-back ripples, etc...

    Is your speakers amp close to the pc, the cheap not shilded ness of you psu is probs givng off some unwanted radiation. Alos is you audio cables tangles up with power ones?

    LOL at that technical terminology



    Move cabling round and see if it makes any difference.
    Swap PSU with another one to test if it is deninately that causing the problem.
