So when I plug my computer into my source of power in my bedroom, it starts making a lot of noise, I think from the fan, but I'm not sure (it does not seem to be the hard disk, it might be somewhat from the speakers, i can't tell). When I unplug it from the wall, it reverts to silence. The strange (high pitchy brown noise) is definitely connected to being plugged in to the wall: It's plugged into an ungrounded outlet: a little skinny plug with an adaptor to make it a fake three prong plug, going to an extension cord, to a splitter, to the skinny two prong apple adaptor that could fit into the starting outlet.
- Is this bad for my computer?
- Will plugging my powered monitor speakers into this same (ungrounded) power source murder them dead or harm them?
