I recently have upgraded my computer from 4-8 GB of ram (4x2GB) and I've been having an issue of where my mic gets squeaky(I sound like alvin from the chipmunks) on a cold reboot, like in the morning. I know that it could be a grounding issue but I dont think it is. I am currently using a dedicated sound card that I have had no issues with.
This is where I get confused. If I switch both the pairs to new slots, the squeaking persists BUT - If i take on channel out, boot on 4gb it goes away! Add the other 4gb and everything is fine.... Untill another cold start.
Hope you guys can help,
