Static noise on speaker

Hey everyone!

I have this onboard soundcard (asus/realtek HD) that makes this annoying "bzzzz" static noise when the PC is off.
The speaker set is a 2.1 (nothing fancy, just fine quality).
I tried checking everything... cabling, interference, magnentic fields, speakers replacement and I got the conclusion that the onboard sound card is the problem.

The noise seems to increase when the humidity in the air is higher.

What would you recommend? I don't wanna buy a $200 sound card just because of this matter.

Thanks!

I don't know if it going to be of much help, but have you tried disabling the on board sound in the bios and seeing if it still buzzes? I don’t know if the power still runs though it after you disable it. Also have you considered the power supply?

and you can get a sound card for way less then $200 :D

I recommend you install newer drivers for the onboard sound chip.
Also cell phones and other wireless devices cause interference with pc speakers.

Thanks for replying!

Well, if i disable the sound card on the bios how on earth will i have a working sound card?

Also, the drivers are Realtek HD latest!

See, if unplug the P2 jack from the soundcard the buzz stops!

I'm afraid to put some money on a 6ch PCIe soundcard and the buzz still.
