Does it also do that if you plug into a practice amp?

sounds like you might have some AC humm coming thru your computer power cord from the wall.

Plug in from a different circuit even if you have run an extension cord to a different room to power it up and then try it. Do you get that same humm when watching a video off a CD or from youtube?

I'm with Daniel as well, need to plug into a seperate amp on the SAME power plug and see if it humms, then pluig in to a different circuit in a different room and check it there.

Lots of possibilities here, take them one at a time until you isolate the source.

cdennyb, that is exactly what I'm thinking. The buzz is their even with the violin unplugged and just have my EQ software connected to jackd sound server. This laptop does need a complete rebuild as the power dc jack is having issues (does not recognize or charge battery and does not recognize the oem charger.) I just receive all the parts I need to rebuild the laptop and will be filming a rebuild video on my main youtube channel CryptisionTV on Youtube. After that my web series 'Out of Tune' will be rocking before you know it.

I scouted e-bay and found a really nice 25watt Fender guitar amp ($50) and it sounds incredible with my acoustic/electric violin. I'll be playing it on the 22nd Fiddlefest II even on streetjelly.com if you want to hear it. Performance scheduled for 3pm PST.

There's others on there smaller, in the 15 watt capacity that would rock that violin. Of course if you have an AC outlet issue then that wouldn't change it but it sure makes the room sound good!

In one room at my place it get horrendous humm from the amp and in the next room, nothing! so... I run my amp in the living room from a drop cord into the next! Ha.

Keep us informed as to outcome of your dilema.

I will definitely check out the fiddlefest. As far as the hum, I'm sure it is just that dc jack on the motherboard as I don't get the hum on the other laptop that is plugged into the same outlet. Just wished I could keep the sound server running on that system, Running multiple sound cards on Linux can be tricky.  I need to stay away from amps in my place as it is an apartment with thin walls. Playing my electric unplugged doesn't cause anyone any problems unless it is 2am.
