Chirping sound when not playing music

Postby Imagus on Fri Jul 18, 2008 6:42 am

Hello,

First of all, I really love Mint! I have been playing around with several Linux distros in the past, but in my opinion nothing beats Mint. A big thanks to the developers for such a wonderful product.

I have a bit of problem though. Well, it's not really a problem, more a bit of an annoyance. Whenever I run Mint, I always get a faint chirping sound in my headphones when I'm not using any sound. Music playback is fine, but as soon as I stop playing music, the chirping sound returns. It's hardly audible on a low volume, but the more I turn up the volume, the louder it gets.

Is there anything I can do about this? I don't have this problem in Windows.

Thanks for any advice.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

You could check if the Volume Control has the mico on...It could be that.

Thank you. I have checked the microphone, but it's off.

It's no big issue however, it's probably just my cheapo soundcard.

I've also noticed this, Acer laptop with integrated Intel sound module. As I have Skype permanently running I looked to that software and disabled all alerts bar the essentials. No more chirping sounds.
