Noise from VGA lead from pc to monitor

Hopefully someone can help me please. I have a HP monitor connected to a HP desk top pc and suddenly I get a continual buzz from the lead but only when I am connected to the internet. I tried fitting ferrites to both ends in the hope they would surpress the noise but the problem is still there.

So I brought and fitted a new HD heavy duty gold connections etc VGA ...male to male... lead in the hope that the original lead was broken.

Unfortunatly the buzz persists even with the new lead. Any thoughts please. Tony

Sounds like it's picking up something from the router, are you on cable connection or WiFi ?

First suggestion is try a shielded HDMI cable, shortest one you can get away with, something like this Click Here . Be wary some suppliers charge an arm and a leg for triple or quad shielded cables and there's no guarantee it'll work.

Wrong cable sorry, don't know what my mind was doing.

I would check the placaes you are plugging it into. That sounds very much like mains leakage to me.
