My Dell Latitude C600 is completely unusable for audio. In fact, it\'s completely unusable near audio. The video generates some monstrous electric field that causes very audible noise in the audio signal. Both the built-in soundchip and my audiophile 2496 in the docking bay (not in the laptop itself, obviously) suffered. Any video activity (wave animation in my multitrack software, time counters, even moving the mouse) would \"appear\" in the audio. Audio cables running near the machine would pick it up too. I worked on this for weeks trying to solve the problem. I tried external monitors, shutting down the video in the BIOS and working blind, and one night in a drunken stupor even tried wrapping the whole thing in tin foil.
The Dell tech support web site has a user forum and it appears that many users are frustrated with similar video/audio clashes. Dell tech support\'s advice to me was to point me to a web page that very carefully explains how to disable keyboard beeps.
I now run GSt and all other audio apps on my desktop computer and shut down the Dell while recording.
