GTX580 + 2 Screens = Audio Issues?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So, 3 days ago I finally got my GTX580 after months of it not being available and it's been running fine. I get no FPS issues, no sound issues, no heating issues, no power issues.. Infact it's using less power than my previous HD4890 and running 25 degrees cooler.

That is until I plugged in my second monitor, which I left unplugged at first to make sure it works with just one. Problem is, as soon as I get some audio running now, whether it's from a game, VLC, WMP or Windows' own sounds, it all crackles. And loudly as well. It seems to be tied to the GPU load somewhat, as the worst of it happened when I had 2 EvE Online clients running at once. The GPU also went to nearly 90 degrees in temperature at that point. Considering that running any game(including 2 EvE clients) with maxed settings on a single monitor never put it past the 60s.

Any idea what the issue here might be? I had 2 monitors plugged into the HD4890 for a year and never had any problems with it.

do a driver sweep and reinstall your nvidia drivers as well as the ones for your soundcard/ onboard sound

It would def help if you could fill in your system specs. What are you using for audio?

Motherboard: Asus Rampage II Gene
CPU: Intel i7 920 @ 2.93Ghz
GPU: GeForce GTX 580 @ Stock Speeds
RAM: 3x2GB DDR3 @ 1600MHZ
Monitors: LG Flatron W2753V 27" and Acer AL1917FSD 19"

Audio is on-board.

If it is something to do with drivers, which is obviously just a default answer to any problem, why would it flare up only with two monitors present and have no problems with one? Those same drivers were there when I had the same two monitors plugged in to the earlier Radeon. I only cleaned out and replaced the display drivers.

Edit: SoundMAX Audio Driver v6.10.2.6600 for Windows 64bit Vista & Windows 7(WHQL) 2010/07/15 update

I did find those from the Asus website and will try it. Not sure if it's any different from the "package" drivers I've installed previously.
