    Problem with Audio. Any Suggestions?


    I just built a computer, and I'm having a small annoying issue.


    ASUS M5A97 R2.0
    AMD Phenom II X6 1045T 2.70 GHz
    4 GB Corsair XMS3 1333 mhz DDR3
    250 GB HDD
    Geforce GT 630
    Deep Cool Tesserect BF Case
    450 W power supply.

    I had this system in an older case at first, that didnt have fron HD Audio, or USB 3.0, yet in that case, the computer had no issues.

    I moved the system to the Deep Cool Tesserect BF Case, and now i have this annoying issue. I tested the front HD Audio and USB 3.0 Port, no issues.

    The issue is with the Audio, and the HDD is giving some strange behavior. I was playing Candy Crush Saga, and the HDD shot up to 100% usage, the game shuts down, and then I started hearing a popping sound coming from the speakers. Now everytime I restart the computer, The Hard drive stays at 100% for about 10 minutes, stuck on a "Local System" process that deals with devices, or something of that sort.

    Also, after transfer of parts, the power supply had thrown a spark while i was plugging it back in, so i dont know if that has something to do with it.

    The pop coming from the speaker is about 5 minutes apart.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Take a look at wiring inside and see if everything is right and there's good ground between MB and case. Change place of HDD where it plugs into MB and maybe it's data cable.
    Run a test program from HDD's manufacturer and checkdisk to ensure it's proper operation. Bad blocks or sectors can produce 100% HDD use.
    A small spark when PSU is plugged in but it's switch at the back is not turned off or it doesn't exist is quite normal, the primary circuit in the PSU is getting charged, that's all. It needs to provide 5v, 2A to MB so it can be turned on.

    I have fixed the problem. I did not have the motherboard securely into the case as the screws were not tight enough to hold the motherboard in place. I have reseated all of the wires as well, and the problem has gone away.

    Thanks for your help.
