Hello, I have a problem which I do not think is related to my Sound Blaster Audigy 2 Value, however as it is related to sound I figured that I could request help here.
Firstly, Computer Stats:
Operating System: Windows XP Proffesional (Service Pack 2)
Pentium 4, 2.93GHz
512MB of RAM
160GB Hard Drive
Network Adapter: Belkin 802.11g Wireless Card
Video Card: Radeon 128MB PCI-E
Speakers: Logitech X-5500D
On to the problem:
I bought Logitech X-5500D speakers, along with my Creative SB2 Value. Brought them home, set everything up and surely enough I had working sound.
After a few minutes a "blast" or loud bang occured, this continued to happen every few minutes from then on.
Immediately I figured it a problem with the speakers, and had them tested at the store which I bought them from. They figured there was no problem, but replaced them at my request.
I brought the new speakers home, set them up and surely enough the same problem occured.
I next tried detaching my Wireless Network Card to see if that was interfering, as I heard that could be the cause of pops and clicks. However pops and clicks are an extreme under statement when you are talking about the blasts that I get. Removing the wireless card did not help, the problem continued.
Next, I tried running Linux on my PC to see if the problem was Windows based. Linux did not solve the problem so I went back to Windows XP Pro SP2.
As a final resort, I replaced my SB Audigy 2 Value with a cheaper 5.1 sound card and yet the problem happened once more.
So I thought, maybe I have crossed wires on the back of the sub which sets up the speakers, had a look and tried some different things to no avail. I also have tried plugging the power cable for the speakers in to a seperate wall power supply, was of no help.
The speaker unit has multiple connection options, Direct, Optical and Coaxial. The sound only occurs on the Direct input so that brings me to the conclusion that the issue is not with the speakers.
Finally, it's not an issue with the hard-drive because throughout this ordeal, I had to replace my hard drive and yet the issue continued.
So it's brung me to wonder, is it possible for the issue to be with some of my hardware components in my computer? What would you suggest for me to fix the problem?
Cheers in advance for any help and suggestions,
Pint-size luxury and funky style
