How are you outputting the sound?  You said it's your onboard audio, is it
outputted via a stereo plug(s), or it coax or digital?

Try setting the  "Audio output device" to "ALSA:default" and the same for
the "Passthrough output device".   Then uncheck  both of the SPDIF
options...  That's what I had to do at least.
