The solution is usually a lot simpler than people think.
Before I check hard drives, registry problems, download new drivers, etc...,
always first try rebooting (which obviously is not the answer in this case), next try housing the speakers away from the computer and even further away from the computers monitor. Magnets in the computers monitor tend to distort mini speakers such as Polk and Altec Lansing.
There's no such things as problems, only solutions.
