I don't understand, are the speakers in your monitor, or do you have studio monitor speakers?

Try muting the mic and line inputs on the PC's volume control panel (Control Panel, Sounds and Audio Devices)

Check if your PC / monitor are using a grounded AC outlet.

Find a situation when you hear the static.
Unplug the monitor audio input from the PC and check if it's still audible:
- if it is, then it's related strictly to the monitor;
- if not, it may be related to an interference in the audio interface / motherboard or the cable is improperly shielded

Try to move the audio cable away from power / internet / phone cables.
Try to use headphones and see if the static is still audible.

All the above steps are to be tried when you are sure static was present.

Having a modem / LAN interface right near the (most probably unshielded) audio interface may also cause interference. Also, driver / software issues are not to be excluded.

Please inform us of any findings.

Lifting the ground by getting a 3 prong-to-2 prong adapter almost always fixes ground loop noise, but it's dangerous--any exposed metal can end up electrocuting you.
