Hello. About a year ago I had ordered a pair of Sony MDR-7506 headphones, for the professional sound quality, since my Dell stock speakers didn't quite pack the audio punch I wanted. Well upon plugging them in and putting them on I've been hearing a slight ticking/clicking with it sounding like it's muffled under static..After starting up games I heard this sound get louder, realizing I'm basically hearing the computer "working".
Now a year ago this didn't bother me much at all. It wasn't that loud. Even after a video card upgrade it didn't change.
But now today I have made a switch from ATI to NVIDIA, with my graphics card. An 8800GTX in fact, from Foxconn.
After installing it and putting on my headphones I've heard that this clicking and other miscellaneous noises have become louder, especially under load. Can anyone help me out with this? Either eliminate it or at least quiet it?
I'm using the integrated sound device from a Dell Dimension 4700, the Sony MDR-7506 (brand new, replaced since orginal purpose), and the 8800GTX..if any other hardware specs are needed let me know.
