Sound Problems

Asus A7N8X have some sound problems . The sound gets disorted. In order to be able to use this Integrated sound i recommend to lower the volume bar to 80% Then most of the sound corruption dissepear. However it is still there so it may be a good idea to buy an external sound card if you want good sound.
