Topic: Humming noise when connecting laptop to speakers
Posted Sun 15 Dec 02 @ 2:34 am
Try to check if the Mic volume or controller in your laptop is in mute(remember almost all of these "tops" have built-in microphones and remember also, that if you connect a mic and get it near the speakers in which it's connected, if it's at a loud level, u will hear a lot of noise like the one ya sayin') try to see if the mic is put to "mute" in your sound card config.
Hope that this might help!!! would be better to have more details ok? G'Luck!!!

I use a dell laptop with a sound blaster extigy external. When the laptop is powered with the electrical network then I have the humming noise. When it works with the battery, noise disappears.
Any ideas to solve it?

Have several DJ/Laptop/Mixer systems and only had this will a new Dell we got. Running off the battery, no noise. When plugged in, noise. Ground Loop problem.
A Ground Loop Isolator cable (Radio Shack or related store) will fix this. There is a version of this cable with a 1/8" plug on one side and a dual RCA white/red on the other end.
