Did my DGX just die?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My setup is an Asus Xonar DGX + Sennheiser HD598's.Yesterday I was watching a youtube video and suddenly I was hearing the CPU through my headphones. I could hear it responding to me moving the mouse and clicking, etc. It sounded very much like coil whine plus a dose of static.

I uninstalled the driver and rebooted, the sounds persisted even with the Windows generic audio driver, so I pulled the card and swapped it between a few slots with the same result. I ended up going to onboard audio which is nowhere near as good, but there are no abnormal noises. Is this thing fried?

Maybe there's noise coming from your graphics card. Put some tape over the bracket and plug it in far away from the GPU, but don't screw it down, and see if the sound goes away.

If you have any options for "Spread Spectrum" in your BIOS, enable them.
They reduce RF and EMI.

Its definitely dead, I finally got my old C2D rig out of the closet (had to put a heatsink and PSU back in there) and it does the same thing. The card itself smells kind of burnt but I can't see anything that looks damaged. Oh well, it was $35 and lasted almost 5 years, I guess its time for a new one.
