    After I installed Windows 7,I started having a problem with sound.My sound card is onboard Realtek High Definition Audio.The problem is,sometimes I hear a "cht pht" while listening to music,radio,game on computer.After noticing this problem,I installed the latest drivers of Realtek,but nothing changed.Also I tried installing my motherboard's sound driver,but again nothing changed.Then I tried a previous driver cause I heard that it works better but nothing changed.Also I tried using other speakers,but nothing changed.I tried playing with sound settings,including "block all sound effects" but I still have the problem.

    What can be the problem,this problem started after I installed Windows 7.

    What is the model of your motherboard? try to visit the motherboards website and download the driver for your sound card that is compatible for Windows 7. You can also try to install a vista sound card driver if there is no windows 7 driver available for your motherboard.

    Try to install the driver from the device manager.

    have you tried going into device properties & working with the options there? mine has enhancements & an equalizer & all kinds of adjustments you can make. look at your default device & properties for what might cause unwanted noise.
