My audio ports are integrated.

I might as well test the speakers on some other device to see if it continues.

If it doesn't buzz then, I'll get a new sound card.

Can someone help me choose a soundcard?

My friend's got one of these just bought, they are excellent, and such good sound quality:

And I've heard good things about these speakers on the forum, Logitech Z230

Well of course, for a company to have given a high competition approach towards the generic iPod with their own mp3, I'm fully endowed to their audio products.

Should have started here to begin with, but...

What kind of speaker system is it, and how is it hooked up?

Can you eliminate sources like cell phones, fluorescent lighting, etc.?

Are there any changes when you try moving the speakers or connectors?

Is there another machine that you can plug the system into to determine if it is the sound system or the sound card?

Are you using a sound card or onboard audio?

And one last question...is this buzzing at a low frequency, and stays at this frequency and db?

What do you mean low frequency? I haven't tried anything yet, btw.

There aren't any changes when I move the speakers/ connectors.

It's an onboard audio.

It's a standard 2.0 speakers that came with my computer.
