    could be a ground from your tables or a faulty speaker cable or rca's.

    What shape is your mixer in, is it dusty?

    There could be dust between your connection to your RCA or 1/4. Contact solution is always an idea. Just use it on your cable endings to clean things up. I generally don't spray it directly into my hardware and if for some stupid reason I ever needed to , for god sakes make sure the power is unplugged.

    If everything is grounded (lots of stuff has an internal ground) and hooked up without any dust or particles interfering you should be fine.

    Reinstall drivers, that might work

    Sounds like a ground loop to me.

    There's several ways to deal with it, and you'll have to finde out which one works for you.

    Anyways, first thing you should do is to find out which device is causing the problem. So just start from zero and add one device after the other to the signal chain.

    Then you should try out one or several of the following:

    - turn the plug 180 in the socket
    - connect all devices to the same powers trip
    - get a DI box
