Default Auzen X-Fi Prelude's problem

I just purchased Prelude today, and I'm getting pops/static sound when playing music, video..etc.

I'm using Logitech G51 as my speaker, and running under Windows7 64bit.

I have download the newest driver from Auzen's site, and try switching PCI slot, but the noises are still there.

Is there a fix for this??

Thanks

Sorry, I haven't experienced that particular problem in Windows 7 64bit. Have you checked Auz FAQ for the card?

Did you install the intel chipset drivers? Go get the intel INF installed and run it, that may help.

Not sure if this is applicable but...

I was having trouble with noise coming from the right channel from my Auzen Forte. It was an intermittent noise/buzzing. Then I noticed that whenever I loaded a web page a discreet, low buzzing noise was being produced in the right channel. I diabled my wireless card and the noise in my right channel disappeared. I have no clue what that was all about... probably an RF shielding issue. Anyhow with all these services running (like antivirus software for example) in the background my wireless card was active quite a lot.

EDIT:
Forgot to mention that I haven't tried better quality speaker cables yet (although my headphones also produce this noise too).
