I know that this is not a whole lot of info on this problem but I really don't have a lot and I am posting in hopes that someone has had this problem and knows what is going on.
My computer has recently begun acting strange. It is a dual-boot machine, and it seems to only be occuring in Linux (which is Mandrake 9.1). The speakers are crackling (and I have tried different sets to no avail) and the display is acting erratic as well, sometimes in sync with the noises from the speakers. The system clock will lose the shadow on its text, sometimes black squares will appear in the middle of screen (rare), and text will sometimes not draw properly (like the text I'm typing now).
The system is well supported by Linux, I have used the kernel's CMPCI driver for my sound with no problem for many versions (currently 2.4.21). The display is also supported, it uses a SiS 630 graphics chip to drive it, and I have even got DRI to work (long before this started happening though).
I am not sure if I have a short in my board or if I have some odd software conflict. Help, anyone?
