Got a new motherboard (Asus M2N-E). I had a K8N before that and had been using its onboard sound device for about a year with no problems whatsoever. I recently got this new motherboard, a new video, a new processor, and more memory. Now, the sound works fine, except it's all staticy in certain parts of songs. The drivers I'm using are called "SoundMax" that I found on the Asus site. The RealTek ones I normally use didn't work this time around. Please help! Bah. Just ran the SoundMax setup thing and everything is fine. Sorry Blargh! The staticy sound has definitely been drastically reduced, but it hasn't been removed completely. I've been listening to some Devin Townsend and there are a few parts where you can hear it.
