Hi

I got a new board to build a 'silent' PC.

It's a Intel BOXD525MW which has onboard Intel HD audio.

I've tried both 32 and 64 bit installs of Windows 7 and both give noisy/distorted audio.
This is apparent both via audio cable and headphones, both front panel and rear sockets on back of board.

Here is a video of the sound.

Has anyone come across this before? The board is brand new so wondering if it is faulty.

Thanks
Grant

audio CDs much the same. Audio distortiOn gone with audio at 10% which is of course too quiet.

Grant,

A simple test,  try booting into a Linux live disc and play a sound to see if this does the same.

I would have to say it maybe a faulty earthing in the connector on the motherboard causing the distortion/static on the line.

If it fails in linux, then that is the next most obvious thing.. meaning the motherboard has a minor fault.
