anything i plug into the sound output plug will make a REALLY anoying screeching sound. i dont really know how to explain the sound but its on top of the normal sounds. for example: if im listening to a song then i can quitely hear the song but i can also hear the loud scressching noise. if i plug in my headphones then i can still hear that sound. this screeching noise will appear even if i have nothing playing, as long as the speakers are turned on.

i have tried googling this problem, no luck. tried asking frends, no luck. if anyone here can help me it would be GREATLY appreciated.

thnx

Hi sumguy111,


have you tried un-installing & re-installing the sound driver?

are you using an on-board sound card or an add-on PCI sound card?

ya i tried reinstalling sound drivers. apperntly my sound card is built into my motherboard. i tried the volume control setting and seems that when i mute "CD sound" the sound gets much quieter, but i can still hear it in the backround.

well you could try rapping the cord in tinfoil for some extra insulation to see if it's something in the environment that is bleeding across.... haven't heard of this happening recently but I use to.... beyond that you may need get an add on sound card ... the built in ones can be very cheep.
