If these are normal computer speakers, they have an amplifier in them - it's possible the amplifier has developed a fault.

If you take them right away from the computer, and disconnect them from it, and switch them on - do you still get the noise? - If you do, they are faulty.

It was my blackberry switched on - do you have a mobile phone or blackberry in the vicinity? Try turning it off - does it still happen?

Noises made by phones are never there all the time, in my experience.

I have disinstalled the program (games spy ) and the noise seems to have abated for the moment anyway fingers crossed

To quote you *this happens when the pc is on or off*

So how can uninstalling a program make any difference?

who knows? one of these little mysteries ! I have star wars battlefield installed and I can only hazard a guess that will messing about with it it has been trying to find a server for an on line game.

*who knows? one of these little mysteries*

No - it's impossible. If the noise really has decreased, it's down to something other than uninstalling a program, if your first statement was correct. For sure.
