Static noise from speakers and mic issue

Hello,

Recently I have been having some trouble with my speakers. They make a static sound randomly. This sound comes and goes, and happens irregularly. The volume of my speakers has no effect on the volume of the static.

My new microphone has also been acting up, making "annoying" noises when on skype.

Does anybody have an idea on what the problem is and how to solve it? Are the speakers just old?

  1. I had this problem from a faulty jack, try buying a cheap wire from amazon and try it out otherwise it could be with the female part of the socket on either the motherboard or the speakers.
  2. The speakers are 5+ years old so they may be past their prime.

    I'll try to put another pair of speaker in my computer in the meantime to see if it's the motherboard.
