    Hey, I'm getting some sort of feedback from my speakers. It seems to only happen when there is no music/sound playing. Where does this come from? Is my sound card picking up feedback from moving parts inside the box? Is there a conflict with the onboard sound device (if so, how do I disable this or even check to see which one is "running the show")?

    Things I did since the last time I can remember not hearing feedback:

    Upgraded motherboard ASUS A7N8X Deluxe
    Added wireless headphones (nice ones from Sony - about $180 - but not sure of the model)
    Upgraded to WinXP Pro from 2000

    Anyone out there have ANY ideas?

    Unplug the headphones and see if that helps. The speakers in the ear pieces can act like a microphone ;)

    It could also be your microphone. If it is aimed toward either of the speakers, you get a feedback squeal.

    In the sound properties, you might try setting the mic to muted.
