radio plays through speakers when nothing is selected

Specs: Windows 7
I removed the battery from my laptop when it was plugged in so I wouldn't overcharge it, and since then I have radio playing from my speakers. I dont have any windows open and i have completely rebooted my laptop with the battery installed. I have to push mute to use my computer and sometimes it sounds like 2 stations playing at the same time. I have a toshiba satellite c655. Help

Batteries are well protected u can't over-charge them(yes they explode)
Never remove any important hardware in a computer while the system is in on.
I will start to look at start-up items with msconfig or autoruns.

Does your laptop have the ability to play radio stations or is this some mysterious new feature that shouldn't be possible? If it has no radio playing ability then you've got a shielding or filtering problem in the electronics somewhere.

not aware of any kind of radio playing capabilities... And does it make a diference if battery was removed while it was plugged in? it didnt shutdown or anything, it just oddly started playing strange things through the speakers. It makes it impossible to watch a video on youtube or something because if 1 or 2 things are already playing in background (mostly sounds like commercials) and try to watch video, the background will still be there playing and video sound will be a little louder

I guess removing the battery must have damaged something since it started after you did that.

You might try a different set of speaker but I doubt that will help. Since you can mute it the problem must be in the laptop and not the speakers.

If it's still under warranty just send it back and tell them you don't know what happened.
