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.
