When playing certain games, I periodicaly get a pulsing interference sound through the speakers. It continues for a minute or so then everything go's back to normal. Only happens while playing games. Listening to music no problem! Any ideas??
Well as I said, 'twas just a thought, but I do know that some games need just that bit extra. and that without it anything could happen including slight distortions of sound. This may not be the problem at all, but in any case I am sure others here will come along with their ideas/thoughts too.
Thanks all, sorry Technotiger was,nt meaning to sound off, just wondered how the interferance would be generated by a lower powered system? System has got creative 5.1 live soundcard with 4 speakers and a sub. PC 2400 athlon, 512mb ram, 60gb hd, xp home, fx5200 nvidia graphics card. When the interferance starts it is much louder than the game volume, and you can still hear the game faintly in the background, then after a minute or so noise goes away and everything is back to normal!!?? I thought at first it may be caused by one of the speakers being too close to the monitor so I moved it but no better. If I close the game application the noise stops. Faulty sound card?
Hi, no apologies necessary mate, I did not take offence at anything you said - didn't even think of it. Another thought, perhaps if you uninstalled the game, then did a disk cleanup, then re-installed game, it might clear the problem.
