Noise problem -- finally found the source!
I've been troubleshooting a noise issue for the past couple of weeks..
I finally have it figured out: If I power my PC from a separate power source, e.g. another car (which is not on)'s battery, then there is NO NOISE.
This proves the noise is coming into my +12v lead on my PC's PSU.
So the PSU gets the noise, and it's grounded to my PC case and so is my motherboard presumably, so the noise gets into my motherboard and sound card, and voila, into my amp, and out to my speakers.
What do I do?
A) Set up my car PC/audio system with a separate battery?
B) Install an in-line 1F cap? (Would that even help?)
C) Make a new PC case out of plastic? Would that work? I'm concerned because if the PSU gets the noise, it can still travel through the wires on my motherboard and could it then get into my sound card's output?
WHAT SHOULD I DO? (What did you do if you had this problem, any why?)
