HELP! Popping through speakers after upgrades.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Morning guys/girls!
About a week ago I installed a Gigabyte 990FXA-UD7 motherboard and an AMD FX8120 CPU.
Upon startup I had to do a bios update, and the basic drivers etc.
I then opened Winamp and noticed I had this static/popping (kinda like the pop and crackle of a vinyl) through my speakers (NAD integrated amp to Bose 301 Mk 1s)

I pulled the cord out of the computer and plugged my phone and then an old discman in, no popping. Plugged it back into the computer, there it is again.
I reinstalled the onboard sound drivers the following day and it seemed to be fixed.

Three days ago I installed a Corsair H100 CPU cooler (as the stock AMD one was driving me insane with the fan noise mostly) and low and behold, the popping is back on startup.

So upon rummaging through my junk for new leads (out of utter desperation) I found a Creative SoundBlaster 5.1 FX soundcard from a previous system. BEAUTY! I thought to myself.
Installed that card, got the drivers, and no popping!

Now, its back yet again, much less apparent, but still there and I'm at a loss really.

Any ideas would be appreciated, thanks in advance biggrin.gif

Welcome to OCN! One stop shop for all the OC addiction questions you have.


I had this issue from my logitech 2.1 system. It actually came from the powerline into the subwoofer amp. when the power cable moved around behind my desk and pushed the sub it would give off a nasty crackle sound until I found the sweet spot to have it.

Or it could be the line out cable from the card to the speakers is bad or frayed somewhere and is receiving interference.

But also try pluging it into the main board sound port and see if its happening there too. If it is then its the speakers, If its not then its the sound card.

Thanks mate!

Hmm, well, I have tried the computer in a less strenuous position on the PSU cable, and I have had sources connected through the exact same cable and no popping, so I'm fairly confident it's something in the PC it self, but as it does it on onboard sound AND a PCI soundcard I'm running out of ideas :/

unistall ALL your hardware drivers, including audio drivers and any codec packs( such as windows media player classic) you may have on your pc and unistall winamp. remove all peripheral from PC just have your mouse and keyboard.

restart computer and install latest audio drivers alone, restart PC and run the DPC program with stock windows media player and see what happens.

ps. also try doing a diagnostic start up prior to this see if you get the same issues

run MSCONFIG.exe > Diagnostic Start up > APPLY > RESTART

Alright, I'll have to do that tomorrow as I don't have the time today unfortunately, just wondering would I be better off just formatting the drive (as it is a boot drive only) and starting fresh?

Just to let you know, I decided to format instead and that seems (fingers crossed) to have solved the problem.

Thanks so much for your help guys, much appreciated!!
