    ok, so within a year since i've had these Creative 2.1 Sound System i have been getting Random FM Radio Signals and it is weird and it somewhat bothers me. the sound comes in and goes out every 4sec at most and happens mainly during the night around 10:00PM. i couldn't imagine my Wireless Router or the Cords having to do with this?

    What radio signals are you talking about? What does it sound like?

    Very probably your speaker cables are acting like antennas, picking the signal over air. I had the same problem before, with my old Creative 4.1 speaker set. With the computer powered off but the speakers still turned on, I could clearly hear the nearby FM station from the satellite speakers, faintly but audible enough to irritate.

    Unfortunately, I have no memory of how I have solved that problem. :( It has been a long time. :)

    Good luck, Levent
