Screeching loud speakers

All of a sudden and out of the clear blue sky my loud speakers starting screeching and would not stop. I changed loud speakers and they screeched also and non stop screeching.
Any suggestions where to look to solve the problem?

Sometimes a simple re-boot solves all manner of problems.

Thanks Clapton is God, but I already tried this and it did not work.

It has to be a configuration/sound card fault, even the unlikely business of feedback from an open microphone somehow.

Have you tried the speakers on their own and with the PC switched off?

Turn your sound down a little, if the screeching stops it is feedback from your mic.

Thanks to Diemmess and Technotiger. In fact I turned the sound down and the screetching stopped. Kind of dumb of me not to have thought of something so simple.

Have you just installed a webcam? If it has a built in mic then that could be causing the feedback.
