On this Acer PC there's no HT setting, but a few others like
 SpeedStep, force XD bit, and some Intel VM setting.
I turned all of it off and on, and several other settings,
 no change whatsoever in the digital noise, although
 turning off SpeedStep helped with some of the pops and clicks,
 as it usually does in most cases.

On the store's PC, not sure I didn't check but HT is likely on,
 because it is a default setup store PC with no special needs.

This Acer PC has shared video memory (ugh), so I tried a
 separate video card, no luck.
