    Hey i just got done reinstalling xp cause i had the .worm or whatever it was and like when i turn up the volume half way it makes a loud whistle noise and like then the computer screen has these lines and the like vibrate. Does anybody know whats goin on? I dont know if it is the sound card or not. My sound card is a audigy 2 zs. Also when i plug in the black and orange in the sound card the make a loud sound too untill i plug them in all the way.

    do you have the mike plugged in or turned up?

    mute that, or lower the volume, see what happens

    The master volume could be set too high, and/or bass/treble...

    well those werent the problem...for some odd reason all of a sudden the back left speaker wires were switched around i had the red in the black and black in red but since i had to add more speaker wire to the wire that came with the speakers the wires were color coated. Its weird that all of a sudden after 3 months that it was makin that noise :\. O well its fixed now. :)

    That should shouldn't cause that noise (unless there was also a short). Reversing positive and negative on speakers should only cause the signal to be 180 degrees out of phase; most noticable by a lack of bass from that speaker.

    Whistle or squeel?

    If it's squeeling thats feedback from an open micropone. Disable the mic.

    His problem is fixed now, and he said that his mic was set to mute.

    My dads gf told me i should make sure i have the drivers up too date which i do and download wmp9 and dx9 which i did and that still didnt help. So i checked my back speaker and switched them around and it worked :). If u r wondering why i would download dx9 is because of the computer screen problem that went along with the speaker problem. Anyway thanks for the help.
