Mobo: ASUS P5E LGA 775 Intel X38
Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz LGA 775
Graphic Card: Radeon HD 5770
PSU: OCZ GameXStream OCZ700GXSSLI 700W
RAM: 3 sticks of Kingston 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) KVR800D2N5/1G
OS: Windows XP SP3
Sound Card: M-Audio Delta 44
ASUS BIOS: latest
All drivers: latest
PROBLEM: There's a constant static coming through my speakers and when I drag a window around the screen or scroll websites, you can hear it through my speakers, I also hear the "buzz" in BIOS when I hit an arrow key. I'm pretty sure this is a driver issue because I've replaced the sound card and graphic card but the problem still remains, and the static/popping isn't present in SAFE MODE.
Here's a video showing 3 different sounds my computer is making:
YELLOW "!" IN DEVICE MANAGER
This came up recently after I installed my new graphic card today actually, the Found New Hardware Wizard won't go away saying it found a new PCI Device. I checked the device manager and I have a yellow ! under System devices>PCI Device which led me to running a program called 'Unknown Device Manager' and it shows 3 unknown devices.
1. PCI DEVICE (UNKNOWN DEVICE) Chip: ATI Technology
2. PCI DEVICE (UNKNOWN DEVICE) Chip: Intel 82801IB/IR/IH (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller
3. PCI standard PCI-to-PCI bridge: Chip: Intel X38/X48 Chipset PCIe Port 2
That 'HD Audio Controller' might be the culprit?
I've ruled out that it's not the:
- Sound card (bought a new Delta 44, didn't fix it)
- Graphic card (bought a new graphic card, didn't fix it)
- Speaker cables (bought new cables)
- I unplugged the USB ports inside the computer.
- Unplugged all the fans.
- I muted Windows audio volume.
- Disabled the asus HD audio in bios.
- It's not my speakers because this was happening with my old speakers when I first built my PC.
*In SAFE MODE the buzzing is not there, my speakers are totally silent and normal.
Anyone have a clue what's going on? No one can pin point this problem for me.
