VT1708 no sound high pitched noise
I have a VIA HDA sound card VT1708 A that was producing a high pitch sound in the speakers. It took me a lot of searching etc to solve the problem. I'm posting this to hopefully help someone else.
I installed gnome-alsamixer:
sudo apt-get install gnome-alsamixer
Then I opened it up and enabled the 5.1
Presto, no more noise.
On Lucid I installed the gnome-alsamixer and muted the front speaker to take care of the noise.

I had, presumably, the same high pitched noise (complete with buzzing as well), though I had sound along with it. I installed alsamixer and pulled all the bars to high and this got rid of the problem. Thanks for sharing.
