Replaced NIC Speakers Quiet & High Pitch Squeal While USB Hphs OK


I could use some help.

I just replaced my network card with a 1 Gb one containingan Intel chip. After doing this I get nosound from my speakers except a high pitch squeal.My USB headphones have the correct sound andno squeal.

I have replaced the speakers with an alternate set and getthe same results so it isnít the speakers.

I have removed the new NIC and it made no difference in thespeaker issue.

I have a Gigabyte 970A-G46 main board.

Any ideas how to solve this will be greatly appreciated.

Doublecheck the connection to the speaker jack. Make sure you are connecting to the GREEN jack. If you mistakenly plugged into a different jack that could be the problem.

That motherboard is an MSI, not Gigabyte.

Verify the "Speakers" are set as the default Audio playback device, in the Sound Panel/Playback section.

The speakers were not set as the default device. They are now.

I don't get any sound from the PC thru the speakers.

Disconnect the USB headset, in case it is conflicting with the PC sound.

Refresh the sound driver. Go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the entry for your sound driver (Realtek) to highlilght it then LEFT click "Uninstall". DO NOT uninstall the driver. Restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound. See what that does for it.

On final thing.
Do the uninstall of Realtek but also uninstall the drivers. Then restart and Window will install the generic, basic function High Definition Audio Drivers. Check to see if you have sound. If there is no sound, with what you have done it suggests something happened to the sound hardware chip when you were inside the PC to install the NIC card.

With the USB headset, it takes digital audio and converts it to analog (basically a sound card) inside the headset and the reason it works OK.

High Pitch Sound
I'm getting a high pitch sound coming through my Razer Tiamat 7.1 Headsets. The sound does lower as I lower the main volume, but then I can't hear anything else. Currently, I'm plugged into the rear USB ports and I tried switching to different USBs, but nothing changes.

High pitch sound coming from computer.
There's this high pitch sound coming from my computer. You can hear it if you're within like 6 or 7 feet. I think it's coming from the cooling fan. The weird thing I noticed is that the sound goes away if my ethernet cable is not plugged in. Any ideas how to fix it?
