my clock is making ticking sounds. How do I stop it?

Specs: Windows 7
from the speaker (it stops when I scroll the sound to nothing) there is a ticking sound. I left my cats alone, they walked all over my keyboard, I came back to ticking.

I turned sound off on computer but left volume up on speaker ticking sound still going on. Super weird but not a computer problem. Some kind of electronic device is sending interference to my speakers.

Assuming it is a regular ticking and not a poor connection or damaged keyboard the only thing you can do is go through all of your running programs, in the System tray, sidebar and even recognisable processes in Task Manager, one at a time, exiting, disabling etc until the sound stops then you know that's your culprit.

Put the sound back on then try turning the computer sound (software) right up and reduce the speaker volume. It might at least reduce the ticking sound if it is some type of interference.

You could try system restore if all else fails (to a date before the cats did their thing).

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Is there another piece of electronic equipment on or near a speaker? My router makes noise through the speakers if it sits on the sub woofer...move it off and the sound disappears.

1- keep the cats out of the PC room...easy solution acquired by just shutting the door when you are not there...LOL
2- try replugging your speaker lines, the jack may be loose
