Answers :

Sounds like you need to check the connection to your sound system. Could be the jack is not in properly or there`s a short in the cable to your soudn system. Check the cable if necessary. You might also be overloading the input on your soudn sytem so try to reduce the volume of the computer and raise the volume on the sound system. If your cable is shorting or coming loose inside the jack you will have problems.
