1st. I had onboard sound, and I started getting crackling noises in my games and when listening to music. I bared with it for a while, then I got annoyed.
the crackling came through my Speakers And my Headphones.
The headphones are pretty good ones, aswell as the speakers. (3 speakers in total)
2nd. I went and got a soundcard, I Uninstalled all the other soundd rivers from my onboard sound, Disabled onboard audio in BIOS, and installed my Sound Card drivers from the CD. When playing games it's fine, but when I listen to my MP3 Music with winamp, and Windows Media player, it's pretty **** quality, and sometimes crackles. (This is with Speakers + Headphones)
I really do NOT no what to do now.
I'm thinking it's something to do with an Audio Codec not being installed or something? I dunno. I then tried installing my drivers (C-media) from the C-Media website, it still gives me the crackling sound.
I've check the plugs at the back, they are all plugged in correct..
It can't be a hardware problem, because it's a bit weird that my speakers + headphones make the same sound, at the same part of the song/s.
I have an ASUS P4S800-MX motherboard, with SiS Chipset.
I've installed my ASUS drivers + my chipset drivers.
