Smile Speakers

Hello. I have a set of speakers. Without playing anything I hear 'electronic' noise of some kind. Irritating.
#1. Does anyone know exactly what cause's it?
#2. What can I do about it?
#3. Can you download any kind of software..that improves or perfects the audio sounds that are produced by speakers?

Thanks for any and all responses

Is there anything nearby that may be causing interference with the speakers? Wires, printers, etc? If so, try to move things around and space them out a bit.

You should also test out the sound by plugging headphones into your computer. If the sound works fine then you know the issue is with the speakers themselves and not your system.

Another option is to try turning down the inputs on the sound card a little bit if they are on 100% and see if that reduces the noise any.

What's the noise specifically? Your description is very vague and there are a lot of different situations that cause a lot of different noises.

Is it a high pitched squeal, or a buzzing sound for example?

In the speaker settings from your control panel, turn off the microphone.
