Hi, The sound on my AC'97 has a horrible scratchy background noise very noticeable when I turn up the Volume Control even in the slightest. Turning up Wave will increase the volume with no noise but up to a limit, but if I want to take it further using Volume Control the noise can be quiet deafening.
I tried downloading new drivers from Realtek site but still no joy. Any suggestions? (NetHighStreet Athlon 1800+, win 2K)
I'm pretty sure is not the speaker connection, I get the same noise when I plug the earphones in. I'll try switching the sound to analog, although right now I can't quite recall where to find that setting.
