So I moved from Bios 801 to Bios 1402 for my Z170-DELUXE and I'm noticing a new problem. On boot, my headphones have static. Then when the first sound is played there is a pop and then the sound works normally. This wasn't happening on Bios 801 and no other changes have been made. I reinstalled the audio drivers and no luck. Really perplexed. Any advice before I go back to 801?
That's really odd given that I've only disabled the software in three cases to resolve the issue. I just went into MSCONFIG and ensured none of those software packages started up with Windows to solve the problem.
