Having problems with your Boston Acoustics MediaTheater Computer Speakers ?

Background hum I am now using the Boston Acoustic digital media Theatre speaker set from a Gateway purchase with a new Dell PC. When the speakers are switched on there is an immediate and annoying background hum from the sub. It is apparently independent of the soundcard, and disconnecting any units make no impact until you disconnect the satellite unit withe power switch on-it, at which point it turns-off. Has something fixable failed, is this a mains frequency (50Hz vs 60Hz) consequence, can I


Answers :

I fixed the same issue by replacing the original AC power supply with a 13.8 volt DC power supply (Radio Shack) It seems to be more consistent at high SPL and no hum , as the Boston acoustic unit accepts either AC or DC power.

Dead Monitor Hi, I bought my parents an HP computer for Christmas and now, only 7 months later, the monitor stopped working. w1907 monitor. I've read some comments on here but don't understand what the solutions are saying. I don't know anything about inverters etc. Can a monitor be fixed or replaced since it's only 7 months old? I think that's an extremely short lifespan for a monitor, especially since it's used only a few times a week for short times. Thank you the monitor is dead

My Dell Dimension 5000 is stuck with a solid amber light on the power switch and solid amber light on the motherboard. Switch 'clicks' ok but light only goes out when power lead removed. No fan, no bleeps, no bootup, just solid lights. The 5000 doesn't have other LED lights to assist. The PC got into this state after local power cut, when power returned. I've changed psu today -- exact same condition. Any advice would be appreciated
