    I am talking about the headphone jack and hearing the system noise through it. read the forum. it will explain it. The Core 2 Duo affects the headphone jack and sounds on many different PCs from different companies, because of the throttling.

    i've heard of cpu whine like those found on the hp 6xxx series, but hearing it through headphones really suck. i wore headphone with music playing so i don't have to listen to the cpu whine...which was very high pitched and annoying as anything on my dv6000t.
    im glad i ordered a compal ifli90/sager no2090 over 1520. those with the 1520...good luck!
    you guys might wana try programs like rmclock and see if that'll help?

    My problem is worse. I can hear the noise without the earbuds, even louder than the fans in medium speed. The earbuds that came with the computer are fairly as I tested them with my ipod. But they just amplify the noise to an unbearable level.

    Duke, download rmclock and try it yourself. I would do it but I don't have Windows. I will give you my PERSONAL assurance if you do it right, you won't break anything. Not that my assurance means anything...

    Its nightmare with my AKG K26P. Oddly enough, its not much of problem with my 12$ AT though...RMclock fix did remove "whining', although its really annoying that you have to manually start it every time you boot vista. And even without whining, my otherwise fine K26P still get terrible background static noises. Dell rep told me that they cannot fix it because its not hardware problem(no whining in BIOS), and Vista SP1 may fix it. Apparetnyl it is a common problem, and now I am debating with myself if I want to return this otherwise fine laptop.:(

    Uh-oh. I have a Vostro 15" on order...essentially the same model. Anyone have first hand experience with the Vostro? Does it have this problem?

    Anyone who has had the problem under Vista, tried it under either XP or Linux? Did it still have the same problem?

    Finally to the person who asked about USB sound cards. Although I ave on first hand experience, the USB sound card should work perfectly. It transmits the audio digitally to the USB card. The card (or dongle) then converts it to analog.

    Still, if this is a problem I'll have to find another laptop. :eek:

    USB sounds card works fine. SPIDF should work, too - for noises from headphones, anyway. You still need to fix whining from laptop itself, though.
