Repairing Noisy/Humming PC Speakers

When most people start getting some unbearable noise in their PC speakers, they just chuck them in the trash. It's true that you can get a new pair for next to nothing, but there's no point in doing so when you might be able to fix it for free. There's no guarantee that it'll work, but what's the harm in trying?

I've had an cheap pair of CA-2012 speakers for years, and yes, they do sound like garbage. Their quality was then affected even more when the speakers began suddenly emitting a loud, buzzing hum. The sound is similar to a 200Hz tone, but much more distorted. I remember (I was much younger back then) putting the speakers away and hooking up my computer to the AUX jack of a boombox instead. At that time, it seemed much simpler to put the problem aside and get a temporary fix.

Blogger Errors - And How To Fix Them

I've only been blogging for a while, but what really ticks me off is the annoying messages I sometimes get while trying to publish, save, or preview a post in Blogger. Maybe you've got one of these problems before:

1.  Save Error

"An error occurred while trying to save or publish your post. Please try again."
Oftentimes, getting this message meant that I had to copy all my HTML code into Notepad, sign out, close my browser, and open it again. If I'm lucky, it disappears after a browser restart. (Figure 1)
