    do you onboard sound or a sound card?

    have you tried updating you sound drivers?

    definitely sounds like a driver or BIOS issue. You may have some devices conflicting.

    i updated the drivers, and evrything even have the latest bios version.
    I have a sound card which is for professional recording and it does the same thing with that one even when i take that one of and leave it with the Realtek audio that the mother board comes with it still has the same problem.
