Hey, I recent put together this new rig. I'm using the onboard sound card for my Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R Rev 2.0 mobo. The sound chipset is Realtek ALC889. I've updated the latest drivers, but there is crackling/static noise when I play music.

Currently I mainly use a 2.1 speaker system. But Ive tried testing it with headphones the static/crackling noises persists. It is not constant, but it shows up periodically. Furthermore, when there is no music/sound playing the noise is not there. This leads me to believe its a hardware/driver issue and not so much a speaker/interference issue.

I'm stumped on this and any help would be appreciated, the noise is annoying.

A:Realtek onboard sound card: Static/Crackling noises

Do you have a wireless (wi fi) connection? They have been known to cause this. A cordless phone or cell phone sitting close by is also a potential. Video card/drivers have also been another issue.

There are many possibilites and many forum posts about this problem, here, on the Dell users forum and other internet computer forums. No "one fix" for the problem.

hi folks
id just like to pick some brains on this 1 plz.
i hav just upgraded my mobo to a gigabyte 880GA-UD3H but i had a friend do the fitting.
he put my x-fi extrem music soundcard back in too and i was wondering if there is realy any point in using the sound card as its a brand new mobo and i would think that the onboard HD audio may be better than the old x-fi card.
any suggestions folks??

A:x-fi xtreme audio or gigabyte 880GA-UD3H onboard

Only way for you to determine that is to try both and see which sounds better to you. If you have anything resembling half way decent speakers or headphones I'm betting that you'll still use your X-Fi.

If you're connecting digitally (optical or coax) to a receiver then it doesn't matter which you use, as it will be the receiver that will be doing the digital/analogue conversion.

Hi all,

I'm trying to run two monitors in Win7 using my Gigabyte z77x-ud3h. If I install NO drivers, I get a mirrored display; if I install either the Gigabyte Intel VGA driver or the native Intel driver, however, I get dual monitor performance... but only when the driver is freshly installed and the computer is still on.

If I restart or reboot, Win7 "forgets" the second monitor and only uses the VGA monitor.

If I uninstall the drivers and disconnect the VGA monitor, Windows will use the DVI monitor with no drivers installed.

But if I install the drivers again, Windows -- even if the VGA monitor has never been connected -- will "use" the VGA monitor and the DVI monitor will stay dark.

Is the motherboard defective? Or is this something about Windows 7?

A:Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H onboard Intel graphics - DVI issues

after the reboot, can you rightclick on the desktop and select "screen resolution" then click on "detect" and see if it then detects both screens, then set them to work how both are supposed to work, click on save and then see if on reboot it works.

Using Win 7 64-bit with AMD SATA drivers with a strange issue.

When this board boots up it does an AHCI initialization which shows the attached sata drives. After that, Windows 7 loads and runs without a problem. However, when I reboot Windows it sounds like the hard drives spin speed is slowing down then speeding up again. It does this about 4 times then the computer shuts down. When the computer restarts and goes back to the AHCI init screen it now shows "S.M.A.R.T. Error", but Windows boots without a problem. If the computer is shut down (powered off) the next boot will not show the error.

I've had Windows 7RC 32-bit, and currently also have XP-64 and XP-32 partitions on this machine with no problems at all. If I set the machine to Native IDE instead of AHCI everything goes back to normal with no shutdown issues.

Any ideas?

I recently upgraded my computer and moved all the onboard switching 7 w/ Realtek static after Win to Crackling, components to a new case and later switched to windows While I was on my old OS vista with same hardware as I have today I had no issues with my sound Then I upgraded to windows clean install I downloaded the latest Realtek drivers R ALC for my on-board sound Gigabyte G M ES L Mobo and I noticed that my iTunes music made a crackling static sound that was previously not there Since I thought the problem was only with iTunes music I looked for a solution regarding iTunes and found that there were some issues with purchased music and a crackling sound on iTunes but I am hearing it on imported music as well I also hear this crackling sound on skype and sometimes when I watch online videos Crackling, static w/ Realtek onboard after switching to Win 7 from you tube and the like I have heard it a little during gaming I have not really heard the sounds while watching DVDs which is weird I don't think the problem is my speakers because I am not hearing the crackling sound all the time with every application i e watching DVDs as I have stated above and I tried a pair of headphones and I get the same results My specs Mobo Gigabyte G M ES L CPU Intel Core Quad Q GPU Gigabyte ATi Radeon HD Ram GB DDR PSU Seasonic M II W Case Cooler Master Elite OS Windows Home Premium bit Speakers Creative SBS Please help me Thanks

A:Crackling, static w/ Realtek onboard after switching to Win 7

If you look around you will find hundreds of posts on here and other forums with this problem. Some of the problems are related to wireless devices (especially a wireless wi-fi), some can be related to video card/driver issues and since you have some type of SoundBlaster sound card there have been issues with more than 3GB of RAM and some models of SoundBlaster sound cards.

Having worked OK in XP and not in Vista/Win 7 can also be related to the SoundCard as there are some sound functions that are handled differently in Vista and Win 7. Also many SoundBlaster sound cards, that are Win 7 compatible must have Windows 7 specific drivers, not Vista drivers.

Hello everyone My audio has seem to quit on me I updated to the newest drivers for my mobo biostar A U from their OnBoard RealTek No Sound - Sound Issue download page and now I get no sound whatsoever from my speakers I have tried uninstalling all of the sound devices from the device manager and letting windows reinstall them but to no avail I have also made sure that the onboard sound is on in the bios When I uninstall the sound devices it defaults back to the windows default audio driver which won't recognize something is plugged in It greys out my speakers and then defaults to the Digital Ouput but I have no such device I then have also tried downloading the onboard audio drivers from the mobo download page and installing them They install but it then defaults to the Realtek Digital Output RealTek OnBoard Sound Issue - No Sound once again I don't have such a device If I go to the realtek HD audio manager and disable front RealTek OnBoard Sound Issue - No Sound panel detection it doesn't even recognize any of my back panels being plugged in Even if I try to plug in my RealTek OnBoard Sound Issue - No Sound headset mic the manager doesnt pic it up If I play music at this point the speaker shows the level volume changing but I dont hear anything I've tried switching back and forth all configurations in the manager and changed the levels of things still nothing Can anyone help Or am I gonna have to go pick up a sound card That picture also shows it trying to use the front jack which I dont have hooked up because I want to use the back panel So I'm assuming that may be part of the reason And those disabled High Def Audio Devices where from my video card and where sound output from it but I uninstalled those as well seeing if windows installing them would help I don't use it anyway so I disabled them

A:RealTek OnBoard Sound Issue - No Sound

The first thing I see is four HD Audio devices in the Device Manager that should be uninstalled (RIGHT click on the entry for the device and then LEFT click Uninstall) then restart the PC. Get rid of them to eliminate any possibile conflicts.

If there is a "default" setting for the sound outputs, set it to default and see if that helps.

I notice a web cam that is also showing up. They can tend to cause issues too so temporarily disconnect that from the PC while you are trying to get the system audio setup.

Hi guys, I've currently ordered the MSI Mobo (in the title) and it's overdue, I wanted to build my PC yesterday, contacted Amazon and they said they can offer a refund, but it's in the post so it may turn up still.
Because of this, I accept their refund (rather than opting to wait until Jan 10th for the earliest replacement shipping date) and ordered the Gigabyte Mobo also in the title on Amazon Prime (gotta love free trials) to have it delivered tomorrow.
My question is, which one should be better? - or rather, what's the main differences? I'll keep the one I prefer, and arrange/ cancel returns where appropriate.

Address a problem with Game Port
This problem was caused by a compatibility issue between your computer's Game Port and your 64-bit version of Windows. The Game Port is only compatible with 32-bit versions of Windows.

This problem is not critical, but you can prevent it from occurring again by disabling the Game Port in your computer's BIOS. Refer to the instructions that came with your computer that explain how to access the BIOS and turn off Game Port support. So.... ?


Can anyone translate that into english? If the game port is on the soundcard, will it stop the soundcard from working?

There is no "one fix" for the problems you have. Each one can be different. Drivers are one item, including video card drivers. Wi-Fi can cause this, close proximity to a cordless phone or cell phone, etc.

Download and run the free DPC Latency checker and see what that shows for your system. High DPC latency (different from audio latency) can be an issue.

If you are using a separate sound card, the integrated does need to be off in the BIOS or they can conflict.

Some types of motherboard monitor programs can cause problems. I have a gigabyte motherboard and it came with a program to monitor and control some BIOS (UEFI) items from Windows. That program caused very high DPC latency spikes in my new PC when I was debugging it for recording.

i have logitech pc speakers, and sound is pretty good. but when i turn the volume somewhat louder, i hear a crackling sound, when music is played, either youtube or mp3. when the sound is at normal volume, there is no crackling sound at all.

A:crackling sound at higher volume

It sounds like a bad connection somewhere but only close visual investigation will tell you if it`s something simple like a loose jack or damaged wire or whether it`s possibly more in-depth like a `dry joint` on a PCB (mobo or inside the speaker)

Another possibility is that it`s picking up interference although that often happens at lower volumes as well so I doubt if it`s that but it`s worth checking the immediate area for potentials.

I've had my new sound card for over a week now, and I've had constant problems with the sound since then. It's better than the complete lack of sound I had before, but now it's starting to get on my nerves.

My SB 5.1 VX card constantly makes crackling noises when in windows and other audio is not playing besides regular windows sounds (folder opening, errors, etc) and even with all volume set to maximum, it's still incredibly quiet all the time.

I use a pair of headphones, although the speakers have the same issue when I use them. Neither speakers nor the headphones have drivers or anything of the sort. They're both plug and play.

I assume you are using the onboard graphics only?

Yes, you can add a graphics card to the PCIe 16x slot on the motherboard which will allow for a 3rd monitor, and it will not disable the onboard graphics.

Been using a Creative X-Fi Sound Blaster Extreme Music sound card for about a few months.

I decided to remove the sound card, and use the onboard SPDIF to my Pioneer 7.1 receiver via optical digital cable and I'm amazed.

Hey Grimreaper!

Sounds like you have a killer setup for sound. (I won't say what I'm using ).

If it were me and the onboard sound system is working great, then I'd stay with the onboard system. If you change your mind in the future, you can always add the external back in.

Best of luck with your new mobo

A:Solved: No Sound - Asus MoBo onboard sound

I'd suspect a faulty audio chipset. The hardware being recognized and the drivers installing aren't an indication that the hardware is actually functional.

With that being said, try a different version of the RealTek drivers. Try using the latest version available from Asus. If those don't work, try the latest version directly from RealTek.

A:Realtek audio, Gigabyte mobo: strange-sounding audio, mic not working

First thing to do is disable or disconnect the Web Cam. They have been known to cause various sound problems. It may not be the problem, but eliminate it as the problem.

Stereo Mix needs to be set as the Default Recording Device.

Refresh the RealTek by going to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the RealTek entry in the Sound section then LEFT click "Uninstall". DO NOT uninstall the drivers. Restart the PC and when Windows starts it will reinstall the sound. This usually fixes any Windows/Sound corruptions. If this does not fix it, download and reinstall the RealTek sound drivers.

I'm putting a Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H ATX LGA1155 mb into a NZXT Phantom White ATX full-tower case. Been a while since I've done this and this was never really my thing, so forgive my ignorance.

I have two wires/connectors on the case that I'm not sure what they're for:

A male molex connector. Could this be for the fans? The case comes with four fans with external controls that are on top. The fans are all connected via three-prong connectors to wires that are labled for each fan control. I don't see any other wires to connect them individually to the mb.

A SATA connector. Perhaps for the case esata port?

A:Realtek onboard sound card with 5.1 surround speaker fill problem

The first step once confirmed that the correct drivers and by the way sound app is installed is to set to the speaker settings for 5.1 or 4 speakers depending on preference. You may want to check on the Windows sound mixer settings as well since many often forget about that other mixer being there.

The first test once the settings are looked over is going into the Control Panel>Sound section there to run the test/configuration wizard which will verify each pair of speakers first front then back as you go along. That is found in the Playback tab when first clicking on the CP>Sound and seeing the popup window appear.
(refer to attached images for both Windwos sound mixer, Sound configuration wizard)

As you will see from the second image there for the configuration wizard I use a separate expansion card(preferred here) while you would still look through that wizard. With the Creative Audio Console/Volume Panel you generally expect a move evolved mixer.volume control panel while most onboard sound setups also provide some smaller form of mixer app you would need to look at as well.

Another trip up found with some 5.1 speaker sets is on the center speaker or other volume and balance controls where sometimes tweaking them is required when it seems sound will drop off from the rear speakers. If the bass is up a bit the quality of sound from the rear pair despite having a woofer below can suffer! Then you have to tweak the tremble if these controls are present to clean up the sound from the rear.

As for 3rd party audio mixers you can find a ton of those. Power Mixer however replaces the standard volume control/mixer included in Windows. Volume control for Windows - Power Mixer

A:Realtek onboard sound. No sound

Have you reinstalled the ASUS supplied Realtek driver? In most cases the vendor (in this case motherboard vendor) driver works best. Non Vendor drivers can either not work or not work correctly.

Do you have the Audio Playback set correctly? The "Speakers" (in this case Realtek) should be set as the Default Audio Playback Device in the Sound Panel.

Also while you are in the Sound Panel, go to the Recording section and set the Stereo Mix as the default recording device.

Finally, make sure you have the front panel headphone/mic jack correctly connected to the motherboard front panel audio jack. The "HD Audio" connector from the front panel should be used (some also have an AC97 or only have an AC97 and that should only be used if there is no HD Audio).

A:Low volume/sound limiter (realtek)


I realise this reply is late, but having discovered a fix I thought I'd share it with whomever may still be searching...

I've had my new PC for only a few days, and although I am liking Windows 7 enormously, the volume fluctuation was really aggravating. As Patemos describes, it isn't random - it's like some sort of automatic volume normalisation. It is especially noticeable when listening to classical music, as the quiet parts become almost as loud as the genuinely loud parts. Patemos' note (2) above is the obvious symptom to check if you think you have the issue.

Anyway here is the fix...

1) Right click on the volume icon in the System Tray
2) Select "Playback devices"
3) Double click on "Speakers"
4) Click the Enhancements tab
5) Check "Disable all sound effects"
6) Click OK
7) If you are playing any sound/music, stop it for a few seconds, then try again.

This took me no less than 9 hours to find... I had tried this option before temporarily, but unlike all the other buttons, the change wasn't instant, so I hadn't realised it would work. You do actually have to press stop in WMP/Winamp, and wait a few seconds before playing music again to notice the change. What is also nasty is that even if the box of enhancements has nothing selected, you still need to check "Disable all sound effects". It would appear that there is some other normalisation effect that is going on in the background which you can't see in the list of options. (The last option is marked "Loudness Equalization" - this sounds like it is the culprit, but it isn't. Leaving it unchecked doesn't make the problem go away (unless you have checked "Disable" above), and checking it just makes the problem even worse.)

Hope this helps a number of you,

Yes i have tried everything from different speakers to different driver versions to no avail. I guess what i am asking is would this be a problem caused by the old windows install and should i reinstall windows.

A:New MSI mobo with realtek sound not working

TBH im surprised it worked without a reinstall, did you sysprep or prepare the OS for hardware migration ?
If not then its hard to say, chances are the wrong/no audio drivers are installed but it could also be something else
Have you checked device manager for any unrecognised devices/caution marks

Hello after one year sound problem ocured on my laptom. Everytime I swap between tabs within no matter which web browser strange sound arise form both speakers. Its not only due to flash but also winamp/vlc ... I have run latency meter dpclat.exe and it goes to RED every time the crackling sound arises. I tried all drivers (intel graphics, chipset, contextant...) then clean instalation of windows 7pro and sound is still crackling ....  does anyone have similar issue ? 

A:E320 sound crackling / popping issue

Hi Martiner, I have a similar or the same issue and it's driving me crazy. Now I know at least that a New Installation of Windows won't help fixing it After hours of desperate search, I have found what's the source of the problem. It is the Power Management Driver not the Energy Manager. I would like to use the Energy Manager because I do think it's a great program which manages the battery life perfectly, but without the PMD it is no use. How did you manage to get solve of the crackling/popping issue??? An Answer would be highly appreciated, I actually just signed up in this forum because of that issue...

So I just recently noticed this problem. Every time I startup my system, that's when it occurs. It seems that I'm not the only one experiencing this issue since I've researched the issue and others are experiencing a similar situation. I tried playing some audio, but speakers seem to be fine. 
Anyone know a resolution?

Hello all Let me first start off by saying I'm a very advanced PC user so no need to dumb anything down unless otherwise crackling/distortion sound Windows issue x64 under Another 7 stated Here is a list of my hardware EVGA i Ultra SLI Motherboard onboard sound disabled Intel Core Quad Q GHz GB Corsair Dominator DDR Two EVGA GTX 's currently not in SLI due to bug being mentioned Creative X-Fi Elite Pro Operating on Windows Ultimate x Now onto the issue I recently purchased the remnants of a friend's PC after he upgraded he assured me everything was in working order and he had no trouble and his word rang true The only issue he claimed to have was in a strange combination of attempting to run World of Warcraft and Skype at the same time Another sound crackling/distortion issue under Windows 7 x64 while SLI was enabled I unfortunately have had worse luck with SLI Upon enabling it and starting any D heavy application or game a strange crackling begins to occur whenever anything even slightly bass heavy plays and then grows worse from then onward I've first tried the simple stuff reseating cards dusting them off making sure they don't share any power leads with one another Then went on to more advanced stuff downloading Daniel K's if that's his name can't remember Support Pack for the creative cards on Vista It didn't do anything to improve it My Another sound crackling/distortion issue under Windows 7 x64 friend said he never had an issue like this but he was using a Razer soundcard I had given him for his birthday at that time That is why I'm confused as to if it is a hardware or software issue If someone anyone could shed some light on this situation I would be greatly appreciative as what is a PC if you cannot fully utilize its hardware A sub issue that I've noticed arise is that it appears that Windows has a volume setting that is otherwise 'louder' than normal or at least that I'm used to Back in Windows XP I had the volume of both the main and headphone jack set to maximum with no issue Under Windows I've had to reduce the volume output on the headphone jack to and the main to to get clear sound without any kind of distortion through my headphones or headset This issue is not as important as the other that I desperately want resolved as what is a PC if you cannot fully utilize the hardware in it Thank you for your time hopefully something will come of this

An update for something I just attempted, which was to swap the video cards in the event that was an issue, same result. An added symptom I forgot to mention was that if I let it go on long enough, the crackling and distorting will eventually force all sound to quit, or only stick to the left channel.

I have now installed Windows 7 on my R500 to prepare for Windows XP's end of life.
I experienced that now with Windows 7 the sound does not really work.

The build-in loudspeaker does not work and an externally connected speaker with amplifier can just get some sound in max amplification. I googled and saw many people having similar issues.

Does anybody know if Toshiba has a fix for this ?

Do other people with Portege laptops have the same issue ?

Thank you

But I found the solutions :)
Download the small ?Sound Utility to Turn Mute Off After Upgrading to Vista?
[Sound Utility to Turn Mute Off |] and unzip it using WinRAR or WinZip
You will find a small file called 'MuteOff'. Run this file as administrator and check if your sound would work.

Note: All drivers should be installed as well as the Realtek sound driver.

I've been trying to figure out my problem for months and months now. I even contacted Realtek but have no luck getting a reply back.

The sound and all works perfect. It's just when I try to record sound from the sound card from my computer for MSN voice clips. It doesn't detect any sound? - I have tried everything from settings to updating drivers. Updating drivers just cause my recording to not have "Stereo Mix" anymore. Also when I'm mastering a song or something it sometimes get a popping sound. I'm still wondering to this day what is the problem? Did Realtek make a crappy onboard card which can't function perfectly on the 64bit system and now avoiding it?

Anyone know what is the go?

A:Onboard sound issue with new PC build

Did you install the Gigabyte supplied drivers, and specifically the sound driver. The motherboard vendor (in this case) drivers are the preferred. Non-Vendor driver drivers can not work or not work correctly.

I have a recent built system, using a Gigabyte motherboard, and after installing Win 7 I installed all the drivers from the Gigabyte supplied disc. Win 7 will install some drivers, some with be the latest and correct, some will be old drivers and some will be just generic drivers. Given that you used the Win 7 installation from the old PC I suspect the drivers are the problem.

A:ASUS P4PE Onboard Sound Issue

G'day Nightfyre, when you have a sound card fitted as well as onboard sound it can have odd problems.
There are settings in BIOS for enabling the onboard sound and conflicts can occur unless the PCI sound card is removed.
Check you motherboard manual for suggested settings for the onboard sound.
When you reboot after resetting in this circumstance it should find new hardware and load the respective driver, if it doesn't that driver should be on your motherboard CD.
It is possible that some audio software program you have loaded is becoming involved and causing your problem, possibly one of the Creative things.
That is a guess!
Cheers, qldit.

It's plausible that your HDMI port on your MOBO is dead. Is it possible to obtain a GPU and try it's HDMI port?
It could be your monitor as well, do you have access to anything else supporting HDMI and see if your monitor connects?

I just started having an odd issue that in my 20 some years working with computers have never encountered. The issue has to do with my realtek HD Audio. It started with games, that I wouldn't get any sound from. I went and did my normal trouble shooting and found nothing wrong. During the tests the sound worked fine. So I went and tried playing an MP3, and no sound happens. Music plays but no sound. I then tried skype. That worked fine and I heard sounds.

I've never experienced issues like this. Where one program has sound and another doesn't.

Anyone have any ideas?

Its very bad when I listen to Coldplay Clocks (the piano rift at the start). Through both WMP and Itunes. When I attach my iphone to my stereo and stream the music from the pc it is floorless. Also when I play music via my tv throught the HDMI it is distorted too.
Has any one experienced this before and know a solution?
Thanks in advance.

A:Realtek ALC887 sound issue

If is the same with both HDMI and the PC's speakers (sound card) that suggests something other than the sound devices. HDMI audio is generated by the Video Card, separately from the PC's sound card (whatever that is, you didn't list it in your specs).

Is this file the only one that is distorted? or is ANY music played on the PC distorted? If its "any" music is it full fidelity wav sound files or MP3 files (which are something less than full fidelity).

you can try downloading the latest driver for your sound from

your latest sound driver available is both for x32 & x64 vista.
not really sure if they're only in beta version.

Every hour or so, my computer will lock up, followed by a BSOD. After the BSOD, my system hard drive (solid state) can not be detected. I have to turn the computer off completely, then on again in order for that hard drive to be detected by the BIOS.

What I've Tried:
-reinstalled the OS (this wasn't the worst thing in the world, seeing as it helped me get rid of a stubborn rootkit virus that I have had for a couple months)
-reset the CMOS.

Other Info:
-My CPU temp seems fine. It's a little high at 50C, but that shouldn't make any difference.
-No hardware changes have taken place recently.

Still having the issue.

I just bough a xonar ds card to replace the onboard realtek I had some minor issues with the cd that came with the soundcard as it only had Vista drivers Didn't realize at first and let it install Sound did not work at all I then uninstalled both realtek and vista drivers in safe mode and downloaded win in sound and ds out Xonar fading volume issue drivers from Asus's website I've got sound and gaming sound is excellent especially in wolfenstein but when i play music no matter what i use be it j river media center through ASIO or WASAPI or if i use win media player when the song starts the volume fades in and out Xonar ds sound volume fading in and out issue For example when listening Nightwish - storytime at the begining the instrumental is made of high notes sounds clear but when the guitar and bass kick in the volume fades down all together and then the high come back at the normal volume I'm not sure if i expressed it right but i get this issue with most of the songs i listen Some are mp others flac or wma lossless The issue is there regardless if i use headphones or speakers Could it be due to the sound card or would a win reinstall solve the issue Thank you Running AMD Athlon II X XONAR DS Win x

Hello guys,

I searched the forum for common problems but unfortunately I could not find any useful information for this issue.

I hope you can assist me as the Windows 7 volume mixer is freaking me out and I cant seem to find a way out with this...

I run Windows 7 on a Dell Inspiron 6400 and I use the volume buttons on front a lot to increase/decrease/mute the sounds... however this feature is not working with Windows 7 or maybe I have not fixed the correct settings.

Also I have a Logitech MX610 mouse with volume buttons on it that don`t work as well.

Here is a screenshot of the volume mixer.. I`m not sure if that`s helpful..

Any help will be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance guys

A:Volume mixer issue / sound control

viachy, welcome to the forums.

For the volume buttons on the laptop, is there or did you install a driver for it? It may or may not be needed, but from the sounds of it, it is.

For the mouse, what version of Setpoint do you have installed? The latest is 4.80 (for Vista, but works well in 7),

A:Weird sound issue in DP35DP mobo

That can happen with onboard audio solutions, unfortunately. That's why professional audio uses Firewire interface, outside of the pc.

What you can do is go into the bios and see if spread spectrum is enabled. If not, set it so.

So i've been struggling with some audio problems for a while now and i've found out that the problems are not related to the microphone as I've tested several microphones that all work on other PC's but have problems with mine

I have a Xonar DGX soundcard and no matter what kind of microphone i plug into it, the volume is very low and i have a horrible crackling noise, if i turn mic boost on, this effect is amplified.

As you can see here the card is properly connected in it's slot

idk what kind of information would be required to fix this, but i'll be sure to respond quickly if some kind of specs are needed.

I would love for this problem to be fixed as i'm currently in a long distance relationship and i use Teamspeak/Skype every day for Gaming.

A:Solved: Xonar DGX Crackling and low volume

Crackling issues are almost always driver related.

Try manually updating/reinstalling the drivers. You could also try using an older version of the drivers.

After waiting for nearly weeks I finally after Popping/crackling changing noises mobo got a replacement for my fried mobo Gigabyte P A-UD It's a different board but practically same as my original one except it has two eSATA ports P A-UD R Ultimately after replacing with the new one I'm experiencing noticeable popping or crackling noises while playing any videos via any media player Popping/crackling noises after changing mobo streaming such as youtube gaming I currently use a headphone via USB DAC More importantly I don't hear these noises while idling or Popping/crackling noises after changing mobo doing anything that doesn't utilize audio After surfing for solutions I was able to find few simple troubleshootings though non of them fixed the problem - Used different USB cables - Used different USB ports as well as external hub - Have latest driver version for the DAC - Disable SPDIF from quot recording devices quot - Disabling other audio devices from quot device manager quot - Set sampling rate to something else I also eliminated my headphone and DAC as the problem still happened for other devices The DPC latency checker didn't help either as it showed constant green results with no drop outs With the new installation of mobo every drivers and BIOS are up to date with newest version As a result I'm starting to suspect the problem is caused by the mobo itself after all all of my headphones and DACs worked fine with my previous mobo with no issues With that being said this isn't the only problem that is happening for my newly replaced mobo as there are all sorts of big small problems which is just driving me nuts atm I'm in a verge of buying a new mobo and CPU because I don't see the point of returning this mobo again and waiting another weeks for the replacement which God knows if that board will have the same issues or not Though before I do that I'd like to try one last time so I'd appreciate it if I could get more solutions to try

A:Popping/crackling noises after changing mobo

Did you happen to install the Gigabyte "EasyTune" program? If you did, uninstall that. It caused me audio problems in my recording studio system that uses a Gigabyte motherboard (GAZ77X UD5H).

Other things that can contribute to the problem: Wi-Fi, a cordless phone or cell phone close by. Video card drivers, sound card drivers. Also a power supply can cause this.

But, as you have found out there is no "one fix" for the problem.

Hi folks,

I am running Windows 7, on an Abit IB9 mobo which has Realtek HD Audio on board.

I have just installed Skype and cannot get the sound playback in my headphones to work.

Sound plays fine in the 2.1 speakers

My mic works fine using the generic MS drivers from Win update.

I have tried various drivers from Realtek (R190 Vista, R211 Vista, R211 XP) but cannot get my headset to work!


P.S. If you need more info about my rig, it should be in my profile, otherwise just ask...

Once upon a time, on a system I used to own, I recall a way to make the sound coming from the speaker jack different than the headset jack. For example: I could play Pandora through my desktop speakers but only hear Ventrillo in my headset. Is this still possible? I can't figure it out.

A:Realtek Onboard HD Audio

You can select the output of Ventrillo to go to your headset, while the output of Pandora to go to the speakers, yes.

The settings to do so should be available in Ventrillo. Just tell it to have the output go to your headset.

No, that case is a mini case designed only for microATX, you want one from this list: 1054808287&name=ATX Mid Tower, those are all ATX mid towers.

Its recommended that you do NOT use the built in case powersupplies.

I do not often check this (it's been months and months) but when I right click on my speaker icon and select Volume Mixer I no longer have all the items that used to be there. I have the latest drivers installed (V. 1.81) and have also tried the updates from the HP website. I used to have several choices...line in, microphone, main, midi, etc. Now I only have "device" and "applications". There is a website that I frequent and it has lessons in midi format that you can click on and they play. I can no longer play those links. Where did my choices go and how do I get them back. Midi files that can be downloaded or "save this file as" play thru Windows Media Player 11 without problem. Thank you.

Is anyone having a problem with their ALC658 chipset? I bought a motherboard that came out of a Compaq with that chipset and am having no luck using the Realtek drivers. No audio whatsoever. Also, I'm trying to manually install the .inf files and Windows 7 doesn't recognize any devices to install from the .infs in the drivers which say they support ALC658. Any help would be appreciated.

A:Onboard Realtek ALC658 no audio

If you hadn't already, I would've suggested that you get the latest drivers. However since that didn't work, I'd just suggest taking it to the place you got it, and asking them to order a replacement.

See my response to your other post. If you want to use the Creative PCI sound card, you must disable the Integrated Audio (RealTek) in the BIOS or there will be conflicts and problems.

Hi All,

I've just joined and need to update my profile with my hardware details but for the moment I'll just say it's in relation to my A-Bit motherboard and the Realtek AC97 on board audio.

When trying to capture audio streams from Monty Python's Holy Grail (Camelot song) I noticed that there is only what can be described as a "wee-woo"in in the background.

Usually this noise is un-noticable but increasing the volume and editing the wave causes this to become really prominent.

Can anyone tell me if this is a standard problem with the onboard sound or if this is something I can resolve by updating the drivers?

Hope someone can help as it's really annoying.

so what you really mean is, that if the mobo has everything you want it to have, you can't go wrong really. I was wondering though, because they stock asus, and looking quickly at the titles on this board they raise the most quistions.

i perticularly like the GA-7VAXP because it has a game port build in.
