i have done as said and manually built out the soundcard, deactivated onboard sound in the bios and deinstalled sound drivers in windows and deactivated windows sounds and then built in the xonar essence stx card and since then there has been no further screeching issues with the latest asus drivers. i also occasionally listen to music in foobar then open a youtube video and pause for it to load and watch later and i hear a slight "plop" as to where the screeching sound would be. i also watch movies over vlc player and have music running on foobar and then it "plops" again. so it seems essential to manually take out the card and then deinstall all drivers and deactivate onboard sound in the BIOS. i will keep you up to date if the screeching should occur again.

This is a very common issue. AFAICT it's a ground loop issue... The noise starts once the graphics mode kicks in (from console text to GUI).. And heavy video and/or HDD will generate that noise. For me, the way I solve this is to make sure everything that is connected to the PC is earthed via the PC' PSU (i.e. aux powered devices are double insulated). That works for me.

What a strange, bizarre issue! It has happened to me several times since I moved from XP to Win 7-64 in late 2011, and it's quite unnerving. Does anyone know if an effort is being made to narrow it down and solve it?

"Any idea if this forum is read by Asus staffers"

no its not !
asus said this when u register to the forum


my advise for ALL people here with the problem

REPORT IT TO ASUS

when nobody reports it or only 2 or 3 people asus won't fix it


i did uisng there contact form on the home page and waiting for reply
(should take 48 hours)


after reading all the postings here it looks like it is a windows 7 driver problem
the bug occours only with vista/w7 not with xp
(linux users seems not to have this problem either)

nop we have another problem

suddenly the xonar essence st and stx create a high pitched noise under windows 7
when using the headphone amp


in my case it never happens during playback
it happens when i want to start playing a video or music file

the bug happens only with w7 (and vista)
and only with headphone output

could be a bug in w7 driver when the headphone amp is initialised

ANSWER FROM ASUS

so after some mails i got an answer from asus about the problem

1st there is no solution and
2nd it is not a general problem, if it would be one many users would have reported this bug and send there card back but nobody did this


REPORT THIS BUG TO ASUS WITH THE CONTACT FORM

asus thinks only a few people have this problem
and won't fix it
they just say disable onboard sound (and if u already have)  try older drivers....

so there is no help and no fix from asus
and there will be no fix for it !!!!!!!!!!
unless ALL people here will report the bug
but i know that nobody will so live with the bug and risc your headphones

the only thing u can do is use another soundcard or go back to xp
