I'm having a strange problem where when I plug in my 5.1 speakers if there is no sound playing I can hear small popping sounds every 20 seconds or so. When music or other sound is playing, the sound cuts of while the file keeps going, then the sound picks back up then cuts out and so on.

However, if I plug in my headphones I have no problems.

Hello,

What Sound Card do you have? Many sound cards require a little setup troubleshooting to playback the sound how you intend it to. The 5.1 format consists of three speakers across the front and two speakers in the rear. The .1 is a sixth channel called an LFE that is sent to a subwoofer.

If your sound card does not support 5.1, then your speakers will not achieve the desired output properly.


Hope this helps,

well I have a soundblaster audigy LS which does support my 5.1, but I'm pretty sure it's not my sound card since it was doing the same thing with the sound card from the motherboard as well.

Hello,

If you could be just a bit more specific, that would really help weed out some variables. There are endless posiibilities, so any little detail would help.

You mention that when you plug the speakers in they act up. Did this just start happening to a setup you have had for awhile? Did you upgrade any components, and afterwards start experienceing problems? Did you install a program and start experiencing problems soon after?

I would love to help, so please, paint me a picture, the more info the better, Thanks.
