My xonar will ocassionally out of nowhere just start this incredibly loud high pitched ringing noise and it won't stop until I reset the computer. It's terrifying because I'm afraid of it damaging my ears it's so loud. It happens about once a week probably about 4 times now.
What could cause this, how to prevent it, & is this a common prob?
Also for a duration of 1 second with phones on could this damage my ears?
My setup is
xonar essense stx
windows 7 ultimate x64
winamp newest with kernal streaming output, allow 24 bit & dithering.
windows control panel is set at 24 bit 48000. prob was still the same when it was at 44100.
xonar audio center set at 48000 2 channel with dolby headphone & 7.1 & EQ.
headphone amp high gain +12db
using headphone out on back of card to ATH-AD700's.
