my sound card on my desktop sings with my hdd, cdrom, psu.. pretty much everything seems to come through on my pc..

Guess I dont need a stethescope.

(places ear next to speakers)... hmm.. might be bhronchitius..

From my experience it just comes from putting the sound chip on board.. my chip is located near the power plug on my mobo.. about 2" from my sata controller and south chipset

I solved this by getting an external sound card... it plugs in via usb and its ment for headsets.. works great, excelent sound quality

something else you can try is switching to digital sound, using the optical port
