Sound Static Help (removes most static)

Stumbled upon this trying to fix my static and it helped it out a bit, not 100% though but thought i would share it.


goto your playback devices > click your speaker properties > advanced > and change the default format to a higher setting, such as 24 bit, 48000hz (studio quality)

thats it, and of course you can play around; if you have an alright sound-system you can tweak your eq. settings and such to compensate for playback quality.
