  • Computer sound noise

    Hey,

    I'm not sure if anyone else has exactly the same prob, but running off the onboard sound, I get a terrible noise through my headphones, like I can hear the hard drive and things like that. But it's grand out of my 5.1.
    Onboard sound may just be crap IMHO - going to get a proper sound card for the carputer. Anyone know what causes this?

    sounds like a ground loop to me, although it's unusual to get it in the headphones and not the 5.1. Are the sources the same or is the 5.1 running from a different sound card?
