    Default random strange noise from speakers/earphones

    Yesterday I started noticing that my computer randomly makes 2 quick noises in a row that sound like sandpaper being scratched together. The first is a longer noise, the second is the same type of noise but abbreviated.

    It happens when I am using the computer at random times (maybe every 10 minutes) and also when I am not using the computer, just a few feet away perhaps.

    Any ideas? ... This noise is annoying because I have the volume on quite a bit due to medical transcribing w/ sounds files.

    my first guess would be that its interference from a mobile phone

    The hand held two-way radios we use at work cause pretty much the same effect when "keyed".

    I would have to guess that your noise may be related to radio or cellphone. Could also be a bad connection for you speakers
