    Engine noise when laptop is off

    Why do I get engine noise when the laptop is off and none (or very little) when it's on. When I start my car I get a very loud whine, then as windows boots and takes control of the sound I hear a loud pop and it goes away. I tried to ground the audio cable and found that it does the exact opposite, when the laptop is off, no sound when it's on, sound.

    My CarPC does the same thing. Weird.

    Yep same here.

    I just put in a toggle switch that keeps the amps off until windows boots up.
