scrath noises from speakers

I have these annoying noises(scrathes) on my speakers,only during startup and shutdown.All windows sounds are disabled but i still get them (noises) everytime i boot or close the machine.Have this case over a year without any probs.It all began by changing motherboard and processor a couple of weeks ago.Same PSU,same cables to speakers ,monitor,power cords.Any thoughts?

With the new motherboard, did you install the motherboard vendor's chipset and sound drivers? If not, give that a try as the vendor's sound drivers are usually the best.

It could just be when the sound driver is installed during startup and when its unloaded (disabled) on shutdown, too.

Thank you very much for the quick reply.Forgive my ignorence,how do i obtain those vendors drivers?
While waiting for response,went to ASUS site,downloaded audio drivers(BETA unfortunately),installed,helped(did cut noise by 50%),but still there as an issue.

That points to the motherboard/drivers or how the sound initializes at startup and how the sound closes at shutdown.

One one system I have (with an Intel motherboard), I get a pop when Windows starts and the sound drive is loaded. I have all system sounds disabled as I used this system for my recording studio.

Had the same issue for atleast 12 weeks.

I solved it by muting the CD player below the text 'playback' in the Mixer. You can also try to mute the line-in.

Good luck!
