    only static sound in audio output


    goodday,

    I own a homebuilt PC with a Sabertooth Z97 Mark 1 Motherboard.
    I've bought this one from a friend of mine and did a clean install of windows 10 64 bit before I bought it. after installing the pc everything works perfectly except the audio.

    when I plug in speakers/headphones or earphones in the audio-output (motherboard + case output) all I hear is static and popping sounds (even when there's no sound playing) . when I disable the driver the static and popping sounds stop.

    I've tried reinstalling the driver software (realtek HD audio) and disabling every other driver to see if any software is intervening with the driver. I've also tried different setting as setting it to AC '97 or HD audio and I've tried heaps of more things but didn't find any solution.

    is there please someone who can help me? I'm out of ideas and can't find a solution on the internet.

    thanks in advance,

    Martijn


    PS. At the moment I'm at work so I'm not able to provide all the specs of the PC But I'll try to provide as much information as I can if you need it.

    :)

    headphones audio jack only playing from left side

    Do external speakers work from the back panel output (desktop), or the internal speakers work (laptop) ?

    What do you see in Device Manager > Sound ? Is the device shown as 'working properly' in the Properties Window ?

    If it's only a problem with the headphones, wiggle the plug side to side a bit. If you get sound out of the left channel

    (or now the right channel ? ) doing this, it's probably the 'feeler' in the output socket on your machine is not connecting fully.

    If you have the same problem with speakers, and because you are hearing static/white noise, it may be the

    left (or both ? ) channel on the audio circuit is failing.

    If you are using a desktop machine you can buy an PCIe audio card to replace the on-board audio should

    the on-board audio be failing.

    HDMI Audio: Are Multiple Devices Possible?

    Your GPU card or motherboard chip likely has only one HDMI Audio circuit or none, in which case audio processing is done by a separate chipset. One circuit can output only one audio signal, that's why you hear the same sound on both displays. Did you try
    to connect one display via analog stereo audio, and the other via HDMI audio? Were you able to enable 2 different audio outputs in Windows Sounds, and then select the right audio inputs in your media players running media content on the laptop screen and external
    display?

    only static sound in audio output

    Most PCs have an audio jack on the case as well as the one on the motherboard in the back.
    Which one are you plugged into? Have you tried both?

    Yes I've tried both.

    That "sounds" like a bad motherboard (or, the audio chip on the motherboard). It would be rare to have two bad audio jacks.

    Couple things to check/try:
    • Go into the UEFI/BIOS and toggle the audio device off, save and exit into Windows, back into BIOS, turn it back on, save and exit into Windows and test
    • Download a version of Linux (Ubuntu is good) onto a USB stick and run Ubuntu from there (Don't install it, just run it from the USB). See if the audio works in Linux. If it does then you know it is a Windows or driver problem. If it doesn't you know it is bad hardware.
