Disturbance to phone line since moving PC

I moved the PC around on Sunday to a different room and since then everytime I use the telephone I get an awful crackling noise for the first couple of minutes, then it stops and is ok but sounds echoey (I usually make calls via PC with one of the direct dial systems - PC to phone connection).

Any ideas of how to cure the problem please? I do have a lot of electric wires and cables next to the phone socket, and wondered if it is this that is causing the crackling?

It certainly won't help. Try moving them away from the phone socket.

Also, do you have (working) ADSL filters on every phone socket which has a phone/fax/Sky box, etc attached to it?

Yes I have filters, there was never a problem before we moved the PC, but now there is.

We use a livebox - don't know if that makes any difference?

Get your internal wiring checked, it look like a bad connection on the box or on the other side where it connect to
