inspire 5300 problem



alright just recently my speakers have been getting static. for example when theres no sound i would turn up the volume and i hear static sort of like when u have snow on tv. and its very very annoying when im watching a movie or playing a game cause i keep hearing this sound and i really can not stand it. how can i get rid of it?
that would most likley be because of your connections (cables.) so make sure all connections are real good. maybe you need a driver update also, depending on what sound card you are using


i am using sound blaster audigy platinum ex. and i just discovered that the static problem only happens when i hit the win xp welcome. thats when it starts. when comp gets turn off again i have no problem i turn the speakers on and turn them up and what not i hear no problem. then i turn it on get to welcome screen BAM problem starts. i have the latest drivers.

try getting the latest drivers for your motherboard's chipset. also, get into your bios and try changing some of your pci slot settings. here is a useful bios guide.

oh, also try muting your cd audio or just removing the small audio cable that goes from your cdrom drive to your sound card, if you have one. it's not needed.

if you can't fix the problem, your audigy might very well be bad.


First just try rearranging your speaker cables and make sure they are not up against power supply cables, monitor cable as these will cause interference sometimes. This could be why it only happens when your comp is on. What kind of speakers are they?

Or it could be your drivers, or the audigy is bad.

Or I could just be completely on the wrong track. :p
got it, in the audio HQ, (control panel) Under Device Controls, in Sample Rate, move it down to 48KHz. (i had the same problem when moving to optical) it used to be set at 96KHz

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
