Ok, here's the deal, just recently I've been hearing morse code-like beeps through my computer speakers, TV and in my car. When I'm at the computer, the screen starts to flicker with horizontal lines and then the beeping begins. No visual distortion on the TV and no "warning" through the car radio. The sound is something like this: "dit, dit dit dit, dit dit dit, dit dit dit" then it stops. Reoccurs every few hours or so. Anyone have any ideas?

Quoting Mt99 (Reply 2): Its ur cell phone - happens all the time
I used to keep my cell phone over the CPU so that it would be handy, and the screen was flickering constantly. When I figured out it was the phone, I moved it to another location and that was the end of it.
Alternatively, you could try this:
What do I know, I'm just an 'immature troublemaker with only a passing interest in aviation' (or so they say)
Yes, it does happen with all does. For example on TV, when your cell phone is REALLY close and about to ring, if your TV's CRT (in my case) is not prepared against that kind of interference, will disrupt your image and sound.
Quoting Richardnhsv (Reply 5): Any ideas in minimizing or eliminating the problem? Getting rid of the cell phone is not an option, btw.
No one said getting rid of it, just put it at a further distance from the computer than what it usually is. You'll see that this will stop.
