    Obviously over the years i have f**ked my motherboard so much that
    it lets me do the super mario theme song as demonstrated below:



    The speakers i bought are Yamaha HS5, white ones.
    My question is how the hell do i remove this cool effect that ain't so cool
    when editing stuff. I did borrow a Scarlett 2i2 external sound card and
    that fixed the problem but the thing is i don't think paying so much
    is worth, i think there's a cheaper way to fix this damn thing so I'm open
    to suggestions.

    That is not a ground loop that is just a sensitive circuit picking up stray RFI/EMI.
    PC's are incredibly noisy inside in terms of RFI/EMI and bus noise.

    If you are using a card, try moving it to another slot....
    Also mute all inputs you are not using. A floating input, can easily cause a issue like that.

    FYI, a "floating input" is a recording input left on, such as line in, Mic in..etc with gain turned up and no signal coming in so basically the entire input section become microphonic.

    Try that stuff and see if it helps.

    BTW, what are you using for a source, is it a card or ?

    @Robscix: A mic jack with an actual mic connected and turned off, is it also a floating input?

    No. A floating input has no load attached.
