Help! New computer, audio issues, CPU at fault? - Page 3

post #21 of 29
Do you have any wireless devices near the PC? Or wires that don't use any protective coating?

Nothing wireless near the PC. Not sure what protective coating you're talking about?

What else in on the same circuit as the computer? Sounds like dirty power to me try a different circuit if you can.

Barring that try a different set of headphones with higher impedance. You may be making the amp on the MB work to hard.

That was one of my original thoughts that it was the power outlet. I tried two different rooms but the problem was still there. What type of headphones would I need to test this? I only have like earbuds laying around other then my mdr-v6.

Well the MDR-V6 are around 60ohms so they shouldn't be causing the amp that much stress. But give your earbuds a shot chances are they are lower impedance and may be better within the tolerances that the amp on the board can push. If they work better, find out how many ohms they are and then get a decent set of headphones in the same range.

Did you try switching to DVI video out put rather than HDMI? The quality is identical, but separating the video and audio signals might yield a result.

The last resort is to send the HDMI signal into your TV (which sounded like it was near your PC?), then plugging your headphones into the TV.

Tried DVI and using different headphones. No change.

I've fixed my problem.

The solution was to stop using crappy onboard audio and get a external usb dac amp.

Glad to see that it is fixed!
