Re: Audigy SE Crackling...
Hmmm, not everyone with an nForce4 motherboard gets this crackling sound but it is a problem nonetheless. I don't have any issues. Your sound cards fine. Make sure to check for motherboard updates. Flash the BIOS when it becomes available and check for updates. That's all I can tell you to do.
*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?
