High-pitched sound, won't stop

Specs: Windows XP
Some time ago, a high-pitched, non-stop sound started coming out of my speakers. I thought it was my speakers at first; changed them and still the same thing. Then I thought it was my soundcard.

Now I've just got a new soundcard (cs4280-cm), got everything set, and tested it. Just when I hit play in a random song the same high pitched, constant sound started coming out. It only started when I played that song, but it didn't stop when I did. The sound volume is affected by Volume control, and it mutes if I mute.

Guess you could try a live cd and see if it shows up.

Move speakers around just in case or try on different system.

Kind of running out of things to swap.

1- do you have speaker wires hooked up to your CD or DVD rom that run to the MOB?

2- are you playing songs from your hard drive or from a CD?

"...The sound volume is affected by Volume control, and it mutes if I mute....". Well, that's to be expected, no?

What format are these audio files, and what program is doing the "playing"? You could perhaps have included that minimal info in your OP...

1 - nope. no speaker wires, only the basic.
2- hard drive, hasn't tested playing from CD

IMpatient;
From what I've seen in other forums, I didn't think that was expected.

I've used Winamp, playing a mp3.
Here's more info, sorry I forgot to put on my OP:

Windows XP, SP3

Pentium Dual 1.61Ghz, 1Gb RAM

"1 - nope. no speaker wires, only the basic."

so then I presume you only have the power and the IDE cable hooked to your cdrom?

The reason I mentioned the extra wire is because some people replace an optical drive in an older PC which they have upgraded to say XP from windows 98. The old optical drive had the extra wire so they attached that to the drive which resulted in the sounds that you are describing.
