May be that DUST has collected inside.

Mostly on Desktop computers----
DUST collects inside computers, and can cause hardware
damage, overheating, faulty fans, faulty drives
Is yours clean.????

I now have another thought.
I have seen on this or some other forum where a person was having problems with a signal from a Radio Station was coming over her speakers.

I am not sure, but I think they make sound cards that are shielded.
Meaning all or part of the card is enclosed in a metal case.

Also, when A.C. is converted to D.C. like Computers do, the remaining small amount of A.C. is filtered out.
If it is doing a poor job of Filtering, you would get Static.
All of this is related to Electronics, not Windows.

did the speakers work before the reinstall?
why did you reinstall?
do you get static when you test the windows default sounds?
when you run a music cd?
when you watch a youtube video?

Look at device manager. Any yellow exclamation points?
Look at event viewer logs. Any red errors?

No I had some problems I was buning using my nero and my anti virus (Avast ) say warning and in order to stop it you click delete well I clicked delete and finished burning after burning and restarting my computer I had major problems.nothing worked i had to manually restart my services and when i did that I did a system restore and that made it even worse I got just my desktop no icons no toolbars and I could'nt access anything well I was really worried about all the stuff i had on my c drive thing i did not want to lose so i installed windows into my d drive hoping i could access my c drive so i could copy and burn all the stuff i needed onto disk well when my windows started up in my d drive i had no sounds but i thought ok i dont need them right now cause i was just going to get what i wanted and then reinstall my windows xp and thought that would resolve my sound problems well i reinstalled my windows nothing no sound i got no sounds so i reinstalled my sound drivers still nothing then i took out sound card and then put it back in and still nothing so i then took out sound card started windows without it and then put back in and still no sounds so I went and bought a new sound card installed it and the driver and i finally got sounds i was so happy but then it asked for me to restart and when i restarted i got this horrible scratchy noise that comes out of speakers. I get the same scratchy noise with what ever i do cd music videos system sounds everything and no there are no yellow exclamation points in my sounds but there is one yellow exclamation point next to my mutimedia audio controller i tried reinstalling drivers for it but it keeps on saying there are no drivers for it and yes there are red errors in event viewer logs there are 2 in application error and 68 in the type , application hang in the source, ( 101 ) in category, and 1002 in event. I hope this answeres your Questions and I hope this helps you to be able to help me

Locate and install the chipset drivers for your motherboard.
