Here is my current setup : Asus G53SX + Logitech g500 mouse + Razer megalodon headset.
Here is my problem : If I for example want to listen to a song, the sound that comes out of the speakers sounds horrible, like the speaker is broken. I know for a fact that the headset is not broken since it works perfectly in Windows 7/8. But(!) when I change it from 7.1 to 4.1 it "crackling" disappears and the problem appears to go away, until I reboot ( it's still set to 4.1 when I've rebooted ) and the "crackling" starts again. If I then set it to 7.1 (still crackling) and then back to 4.1, the "crackling" goes away.
I've googled the shizzle out of my problem but I've not yet found a solution. I've tried all kinds of mixers/sound handling software and nothing appears to be working.
Minor note : the microphone is not working properly.
Thanks for taking your time and reading and hopefully helping me out. Regards, Victor.
