Journal Journal: Central Time IS NOT Mountain Time...

Note To self: Central Time Is Two Hours Ahead Of Pacific Time, Not One Hour.
Incase you didn't know Creative TechSupport Closes at 6 Central Time. I called at 4 Pacific thinking I still had a hour. This Sucks, No?

Journal Journal: My PC

So I finally got my New PC hooked up. Its working except for heavy static coming from the sound card and the bios reading my hard drives and Cd player as IDE devices...

The Build

DFI "LANPARTY 925X-T2" 925X Chipset Motherboard For Intel LGA 775 CPU -RETAIL
BFG GeForce 6800 GT OC 256MB DDR3/PCI-E/TV-Out/DVI (Retail Box)
Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy2 ZS GAMER Limited Edition PCI Sound Card, Model "SB0350" -RETAIL
Intel LGA775 Pentium 4 550 3.4 GHz, 800MHz FSB, 1MB L2 Cache, Hyper Threading Technology - Retail
Plextor 16X Dual Layer DVD+/-RW SATA Drive, Model PX-716SA/SW, Retail
Maxtor Ultra Series Kit 200GB 7200RPM SATA Hard Drive, Model L01M200, Retail 2x

So First Off the Hard Drive And The CD Player.
I have the hard drives connected to sata ports 1 and 3 and the player to 2. I tried switching the the CD to number 3 but no difference. BIOS says their all IDE drives. Tried going through Bios settings pertaining to IDE and Sata drives and couldn't get anything.

As for the Sound card...
When my headphones are plugged in I get some pretty heavy static. The volume of the static doesn't change if I turn the volume up or down. I can just barely make out game music when playing a music file.
