Can you describe the sound difference - louder, no bass, clicks and pops, plays Ave Maria at random intervals? What sound card do you have or, if none, what motherboard? Reply to WyomingKnott Monkey5000 July 2, 2014 6:33:22 AM I think it installed in IDE mode, I can not select IDE in Bios, only deselect or chose RAID or AHCI In RAID it sounds al little distorted and i AHCI a lot distorted. Do you know why. Motherboard is Gigabyte P35.
