On-board sound help

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am using the on-board sound on my Asus A8N-32 Deluxe. I have a problem weather I use headphones or my desktop speakers. When I turn up at high volume I get a high pitched noise. I've tried to install new sound driver with now luck.

Any ideas?

Best idea?

Disable onboard sound and invest in a PCI soundcard.

Not too creative ... but I think it's the best solution.

On-board sound is usually fine, you must have a dud. I just installed a PCI soundcard so that I could seperate my game noise from my Teamspeak/Ventrilo noise (1 sound card for headset, 1 for speakers). Makes it a lot easier to hear what people are saying by not having the sound of the game or anything else windows related coming out of my headset. It was kind of an experiment, I didn't think my PC would let me use both sound cards at the same time, but it works.

Nice crisp sound was never a big issue for me to have. Any cheap sound card you recommend?

Creative Labs SoundBlaster Live, the PCI card I use together with my on-board audio.
