    Anyone ever get any random distortion at system login with the Windows music?

    I'm using a high-end ASUS mobo with a daughter board for my soundcard.


    When I play games or music it runs perfectly clear... :ugh:

    Clean install... 2.13 core2duo, 1gb of ddr2 dual channel... pretty high end system... never had this issue with lower end systems.

    Computer also doesn't take much time to load.

    Yeah I did that. I was wondering about testing the ACTUAL .wav that plays and if that's not messed up, the "delete" the sound card and re-install it.

    Do you need the windows sounds to play?

    You could just turn them off. Everything else will work fine,
    but you won't hear any of the annoying beeps and groans everytime
    windows needs to alert you with a tone.

    Just go to Start > control panel > sounds and audio devices > sounds tab >
    under the drop down arrow for "sound scheme", select "no sounds", then click apply and ok, and no more annoying windows sounds. Distorted or otherwise.

    Yeah I was going to use that as a last resort... but I'm wondering if the card is fucked up.... but in everything else, even shutdown it works and it's random at startup. It's a daughter-board on my ASUS P5N32-SLI Premium mobo.

    How do you boot your system up?

    Do you turn you speakers on, and then boot your computer?

    Or do you maybe leave the speakers on?

    I'm thinking that if you turn the speakers on at the last second, it could be just a bit of static from the connections.

    They make connector "conditioners" that you can buy.

    It's usually a two step procedure. You apply a mild acid type of coating to the connector. Wait a few seconds, then wipe it off. Then you treat the connector with a conditioner/sealer. That gets rid of a LOT of noise problems.

    Maybe that's worth looking at... where can you get that?

    I'm using the same audio system as I've used for years tho :hs:

    I've been using the same two bottles, for years.

    It was called Cramolin, and I can't remember the last time I saw
    it available.
    But a trip to a high end audio store would probably find something very similar.

    I hate ALL of the noises, that's why I always advise that.

    Fuck microsoft and their weirdo noises. :)

    On another note though, the sounds from Vista were recorded
    by Robert Fripp of King Krimson, so I'll be leaving the sounds on in Vista. :cool:

    I don't know if that one had the video in it or not, but I saw one that was circulating around a while back, and the sounds they were messing around with were pretty damned cool.
    One thing about Fripp, he always came up with great tones.
