I have a Asus P5E3 Deluxe motherboard.
I installed all the drivers for my Win 7 64-bit OS.
Everything works, except this strange high pitched noise from my speakers.
If I turn the volume down to about 0. I can still hear the sound in both my speakers and headphones.
Anyone have a solution?
and no, it's not the speakers/headphones themselves.
It's not a physical sound from any hardware like fans/drives.
And no, it's ofc not the mic feedback. cause I can still hear the high pitched sound even when I turn the down the volume to 0, where winamp/skype is silent... the high pitched sound still persists.
If you have an on-board soundcard, it may just be a badly designed motherboard and some USB device is interfering with it. I noticed this when I used headphones in my front ports while having a pair of externals hooked to the front-USB

I just started having the same problem after installing Windows Server 2008 R2.
The Motherboard is a Asus P5E WS Professional.
Tried 2 sets of speakers, and they both do the same thing.
Had to download drivers for the Realtek soundcard from CNET, because nothing from AUSU would install on Server 2008.
Powering down the machine completely then booting up the problem was gone.
I had my integrated sound start to flake out and make the same sound. If I would reboot it would disappear. Eventually nothing I did would help. I couldn't see a bulged cap or anything, so I just disabled the on-board sound and switched to a sound card. Computer has been running fine since..
