Speakers make high pitched sound with keyboard plugged in


Aug 6, 2014
I'm getting a high pitched sound from my speakers that increases as I turn up the volume and turns off when the speakers are not turned on. The speakers I have are Durabrand UC-280 speakers, and I've somewhat been able to figure out the problem. I noticed after plugging them into a different computer that they did not produce the high pitched sound on that machine. So after unplugging things one at a time from my computer with the speakers turned on, I found that the noise stops when my keyboard is not plugged in. I have the Corsair Vengeance K70. Any ideas on why this happens and/or how to fix it?
sounds like perhaps a usb ground loop issue. you could try a usb ground loop isolator and see if that works. or try plugging them into different usb slots. using a powered usb hub might also eliminate the issue.
