    Ive got the speakers below connected to the sound output on the motherboard. Theres a constant crackle when they are switched on. I tried adding ferrite chokes to the cable but has made no difference. any Ideas?

    My basket at Overclockers UK:
    Total: £33.89 (includes shipping: £9.90) ​

    well i randomly located the source. i have a 2nd NIC card installed which is connected to a retro windows 98 PC, i put my hand on the windows 98 PC and the interference dropped by half, i unplugged the LAN cable from the windows 98 PC and the interference is now gone.

    Technically not internet, a LAN cable linking two pcs to transfer files. as i dont want the windows 98 pc directly to the internet, or something in the windows 98 pc, but it wasnt even on
