My computer speakers have started to emit a buzz, which "behaves" as following: It is loud when I power the speakers on, and then it fades quickly to a much lower volume level and remains constant and little audible thereafter. It is independent of the level the volume button is set. That is, if there's no audio at all, the buzz is the same at all volume levels. It has nothing to do with the computer and its sound card since its "behavior" is the same when I have the speakers disconnected.
Can it be caused by the adaptor, which has got a problem? Is it a question of grounding? In any of these cases, can it be fixed and how?
