Having problems with your Gateway Media Center 610XL PC Desktop ?

Speaker static noise

\015 Have four year old Media Center that has been great machine. Just yesterday right side speaker started making loud static noice that I can't pinpoint. Have tried muting and reseting speaker controls to no avail. Recently moved the machine but was fine; started making the noice when I tried to watch a DVD and hasn't stopped since. More annoying than anything else. Any ideas for a solution? Thank you.\015

Answers :

The first thing to try is plugging a set of headphones into the speaker plug and testing, see if the crackling continues, if it doesn't it sounds like a short in your speakers (or the sound card, but my guess would be the speakers).
