Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 125297
nForce2 AC97 - terrible high pitched noises, squeaks, hums, etc.
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:06:44 EST
Description of problem:
Fresh Fedora Core 2, updated with apt.
I am using Asus A7N8X Deluxe with onboard sound:
desc: "nVidia Corporation|nForce2 AC97 Audio Controler (MCP)"
desc: "nVidia Corporation|nForce MultiMedia audio [Via VT82C686B]"
It provides terrible, high pitched noises (squeaks, hums, noises,
etc.) from speakers or headphones just after kernel starts. It sounds
like this noise is synchronized with hdd work, cpu uses, etc.
I can insufficiently solve this with some alsamixer tries, but when
i'am calling from gnomemeeting it hapens again. My caller can also
hear these sounds, but when i take microphone out, the noise stops
for him, but it's still on my side.
I was trying to mute all inputs, etc - no result.
On Windows XP this problem does not exists.
Always on kernel start.
Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat. The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.
If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.
