    I just received my 1520 today and I am also receiving a lot of bad static and noise coming from my pc.

    I can hear it from the computer even when I do not have the head phones on, it is worse with the head phones.

    I'll call dell tomorrow.

    how about you chat to them using the live chat support?

    also, link them to this forum...show them people having this issue!

    Oh and my system config is just like yours, except...


    are you using the CREATIVE SOFTWARE EDITION?

    I think it's hardware...

    Oh I wanted to try a USB headset...but i don't have one... I wonder if an external USB sound card would help too??

    help!

    I'm also getting a little static through my headphones. I only notice it when I'm not playing anything though.
