Default Sound from computer speakers fluctuating in volume?


I have not had this problem up until recently.

The sound from my computer speakers will fluctuate in volume. As in, I'll be playing a game or watching a movie, and the sound will randomly decrease, a couple seconds later increasing. I've made sure the "do nothing" option is selection within the sound manager, verifying this does not solve the issue.

It appears to only occur within my computer speakers (Bose Companion III) as I've plugged in my headset to the computer case front audio jack (Realtek HD) and have not experienced the issue.

I've checked to make sure all connections from the speakers to the computer are intact. At this point I'm not sure of how to correct this other than trying to purchase a sound card to see if that fixes the issue.

check the cables from the pc to the speakers, Go to the back of your pc and speakers and give them some flexing while the sound is on
