Last night I unplugged my DSL from my desktop and plugged it into my laptop. As I was puttering on my laptop, I noticed a strange intermittant buzz–just a quick “bdddd” every few seconds. My laptop had never made this noise before, and I was afraid a fan was starting to hit something or something.
This morning I put the DSL cable back into my desktop, and as I was puttering around on my desktop, I heard the buzzing again. This time it was coming from my desktop. It sounded much quieter. I didn’t think the desktop had been making that noise before. To be sure, I started up my laptop with no DSL cable, and sure enough, my laptop wasn’t buzzing. It was my desktop.
Here’s the really strange thing. The sound is hard to locate because it’s so bass-y and so quiet, but as far as I can tell, it’s coming from my speakers.
Basically, my question is WTF.
