Just a very odd sound coming from my onboard. I have a Gigabyte GA-8IG1000 which has been awesome for a year and a half. I recently (about 2 weeks ago) noticed that the soundcard will make a tick, kinda sounds like an old DOS game sound. but it is recurring every 3-4 seconds or so. The funny thing is that it only happens in old games like Diablo 2 or Heroes of MM 3. I'm guessing it has something to do with soundblaster compatability, but why hasn't this problem been seen before? I can exit the game, sound will go away. I can even play newer games such as BF2 or even CStrike, and the sound is fine. I've looked around for similar posts, but can't find any. Any help would be appreciated. I'm using AC' 97 Realtek Codec: ALC850 Win XP Also, the time this started, i did just set the card to have 2 ports "Line-out" and 1 port "Mic." It didn't occur at the time, but i noticed it after i made this change, and played an older game. However, i've since set it back to default and the sounds still occurs.
