I have a strange issue with my sound when booting or shutting down Windows 7 64.
I think it's when the sound driver is initialized that this happens, but I'm not sure.
I hear a loud click (the kind of sound you'd sometimes hear when turning on an amplifier when the volume is at it's max). The same thing happens when shutting down.
Sound playback is normal in windows, no problems whatsoever.
I have a Rampage Formula board, and Windows 7 installed the drivers for the sound on install, so that seems right I guess.
The volume in windows is at 10% usually, so it should not be making a loud noise at all.
Are there other users with similar problems? What could be causing this behaviour?
