Re: a buzz

@ OLDjim
    . no speakers on monitor. it is new monitor but worked okay with previous pc
@ Strat
  i have just been under the desk [ with great difficulty. vertigo poor today ] and near to the big square plug from the Labtec there is a little nick. cable feels hard as apposed to most of the wire. am just wondering if the dog has had a little go at it. perhaps a new wire then Huh
son coming monday so perhaps he can say.
incidently can a new big squared plug be purchased . might be better to get new speakers.
thanks everyone. will let you know  Roll eyes

Re: a buzz

I am often telling my old man that various peripherals he has are 'broken'.
He buys new ones, i 'get rid of' the old ones.

Re: a buzz

mrmarkus1981. 
are we stretching the truth here.
do they need dumping at the tip by the way.?Huh
@ Strat. thanks for confirmation Logitech speakers are good. have liked their other stuff. keyboard and mouse combined was good.
bit the dust now tho' but do have  Log mouse with usb2 connection. very sensitive.
anyway thanks all for replies.
