Alright, so all that aside, recently I purchased a 5.1 "3D USB SOUND ADAPTER!". The name sounds a lot cooler than it really is. Now I'm not sure if I just got a bad deal or not, but now with my new "3D USB SOUND ADAPTER!", I can finally hear sound again, but under one lame-[bleep] condition: It absolutely has to constantly sound like a massive force of static is overtaking the speakers. And no, it's not the speakers because I've tried many different pairs.
So what should I do? Is there some sort of magical driver that can make it at least sound a little more audible? I mean, I know I only spent 10 bucks on this USB thing, but don't you think you should at least be able to hear audio a little bit, without being eaten alive by static? I don't know a whole lot about PC's, but I do know that I uninstalled my old sound driver to no avail, and previously had tried to rollback the driver just in case it was something bug-related.
I've reformatted my computer numerous times since before, so I know that the original sound issue is never going to be solved, but what's my best bet here as far as the external realm goes?
Thanks a lot for looking over this, hopefully someone can help out. Cool forum by the way
