Windows 7: sound gets staticy randomly on my soundcard

sound gets staticy randomly on my soundcard

I have a creative zs PCI sound card with a front panel, sound goes funny randomly after a while with it. It wasn't like this until I switched to windows 7 months ago; worked perfectly fine in XP. I can't figure it out, I've read a few threads to and tried changing some settings cause people said it worked for them, nothing worked for me yet. My onboard sound works without going static but I can't hear dialouge (people talking) in DVDs I watch and sound volume goes up and down strangely in video games. The sound quality I think is worse too, I miss people able to make my bass work better and use my front panel. I've never had a problem with sound on the computer until windows 7, it's been a long time now and I'm hoping someone might have answers to help me out...

If it's Audigy 2zs, make sure you have this latest driver

If not, please be specific on your card model.
Also, update your system specs. Thx.

thats the card I have...is that really the problem? Do people who update their driver still have problems with sound going fuzzy/staticy? I've just updated my driver after uninstalling with driver sweeper. Hope this solves it....

If it's still doing it after the driver updat, notice if it happens after the computer comes out of sleep or hibernation mode.
