Static on one side

Hi guys,

Recently my onboard sound decided it's life was at and end. Out of nowhere there was static on the left side, speakers, earphones, tried several but to no avail. I thought the jack was probably broken or something. So, I disabled the onboard sound in the bios, removed its driver and installed a Creative X-Fi Xtreme gamer that I still had laying around. Problem is, it's still giving me static. It seems software based as it only starts when windows is booting, no problem during post. I have the newest drivers and it came out of nowhere, anybody have an idea what it could be?

Thanks guys.

  1. Small update: I disabled the X-fi drivers and the static stopped. So, I tried the on board again but it did it too. If I remove all drivers it works. When I install either, it starts again. Any chance this could be windows?
