Not sure how to describe the sounds it makes really, but when there is supposed to be no sound, my computer is still producing sound, it's like a mixture of static, thumping, and humming.. It's pretty quiet, and you need to turn the sound up quite a bit to hear it, but it is quite aggervating when I'm trying to watch a movie. It will also make sounds when I do anything on my computer, like minimize Firefox, they're best described as a digital scratching sound.
It's not my speakers, because this sound is present whether I have headphones on or am playing sound through my speakers, I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit, and my soundcard is onboard 7.1 surround sound (I only use 5.1 speakers however) The computer is brand new, maybe 2 months old at the most..
Any ideas on how to get rid of this?
