Recently reinstalled Win 2K Chinese on my computer and the speakers have been hissing ever since. Constant low level white noise, sometimes jumps in volume if e.g. music is played. I re-reinstalled the OS, but the sound is still there. The same computer is also running Win 2K English and there is no problem there - so it’s not a hardware issue.
Any ideas what could be causing this? Since I reinstalled there are no programs with audio output- apart from those bundled in windows (media player, CD player etc.). Failing a solution, does anyone know of any application that lets you monitor the input to your sound card?
