I heard a hum/static through my monitors and headphones when using my Firepod... After a while, I eventually traced the problem to the power adaptor for my Laptop. When plugged in, there is a hum, and when not plugged in there isn't. This must be due to the ground... therefore, I'm trying to figure out the best way to solve this problem. I know that Ground lifting is generally dangerous and not recommended. IF anyone has a tip on how to keep my computer plugged in and to eliminate this hum from the adaptor (ground) that would be helpful. Thanks.
