    You've probably tried this, but is your headunit grounded? Not the black wire that runs from the harness, but a separate wire that's attached to the HU and grounded. I had the same noise and bought a ground loop isolator but that killed my sound as far as lows and mids go. So last night I grounded my HU and tested it. The noise was gone except for when I turn my HU up to 36 (volume level) but I never have it up that loud. The loudest I go is 20 and even that is too loud. So ground your HU if you haven't already.

    Ya know, I had a crazy whining noise coming from my screen once. I even had it grounded. I still was getting a whine and it was interfering with my touchscreen. Finally I grounded it in three different places on the circuit board. My prob went away. I was thinking, you should ground your laptop mobo in a few places. Like ground the screw holes on a serial port or something. Ground using a contact point right on the circuit board, maybe 2 opposite of each other. Also try grounding your lilliput after the egg as well.

    Your CD changer has an audio input? Are you possitive that it's an input? Maybe I don't know what I'm talking about but CD changers usually only have audio out, not audio in. Maybe you are saying that you disconnected the cd changer and used the leads for your sound card instead?

    Rigggggght, well basically the cd changer has an output to the headunit, so i just disconnected the audio plugs and pluged them in my soundcard. So when i turn on cd changer, then i get my music.

    I'm going to asume that the laptop has a working internal battery. What happened when you disconnected the power and ran directly off the internal battery?

    When i disconnect the power and run directly off the internal battery, but the buzzin is still there just a lil less when its not plugged in. Which i guess means that the buzzing is coming from the inverter being powered even thou its not plugged in. I am currently looking around for a new inverter to replace this one. Maybe i can find one with better quality or something. Its just my laptop is old and ****ty name brand( KDS) so there isnt much **** out for it. Ill just keep looking.
