M-Audio PCI soundcard, static noise problem on left channel


Senior Member
After I switch my workstation from old Core 2 Duo to i7 with a brand new mother board, from time to time I can hear strange static noise (like LP) only in left channel, but only when music is played. No problem if no sound - on silence.

To be worst, after I restart W10 everything seams ok, and after some time it backs again.

Checked cables and all stuff related to it - it's ok.
Cleaned PCI card and reverted back into workstation.

Soundcard is M-Audio Audiophile 2496 and system is W10.
Anyone had something similar in past?

I already opened this thread: http://vi-control.net/community/threads/audio-interface-sound-card-change-opinions.60834/
Maybe it's time to switch to USB interface?!?
