View Full Version : [ubuntu] Annoying background noise

May 5th, 2008, 07:26 PM

I recently installed Ubuntu Hardy on my desktop and the first thing that struck me was this background noise whenever something visual happens, such as moving the mouse, animations, effects and typing.

I don't know if this is a known issue or if there is a fix anywhere but I thought I would ask.

Abit NF7 series mobo and Creative Sound Blaster Live.

The noise is even there when everything is muted and is quite bassy. Sound has always worked in windows xp fine but just wondering why it is appearing in Ubuntu on a fresh install.

The noises kick in on the Ubuntu loading screen if that helps.
