Yes, I DLed the drivers to HD and tried to execute from there.
All of the other devices are good (at least according to device mgr)
The onboard sound is turned off in the bios.

Thanks

Curious.

Try uninstalling the current sound driver from Device Manager (Win 7 will immediately locate and reinstall the driver outside the installation program). Then, right click on the driver installation exe and select Troubleshoot Compatibility before rerunning the installation exe.

Crackling and Popping Problem MAY Be Solved

I just finished an upgrade install of the 64-bit Build 7068 leaked yesterday and the crackling and popping has disappeared under non-gaming use. I'm using my full 6GB RAM for the first time with Windows 7 without triggering this problem.

I spoke a tad too soon. After living with 64-bit Build 7068 and playing streaming music from Pandora all day, I can say the problem has certainly been addressed, but is not 100% fixed.

I had no sound issues when Build 7068 started for the first time. When the screen saver was triggered, I lost sound which did not return when I logged back in or even resorted to the "Change Sampling Rate" trick. After a cold boot, I heard some crackling and popping on startup system sounds, but once the system was fully loaded, system sounds and music playback were fine with no crackling and popping. I still lose sound after the screen saver is triggered, but simply toggling sampling rates restores sound for the rest of the session. I'm hoping these eccentricities are due to the fact I performed an upgrade install of Build 7068 and they'll disappear entirely with a clean install or future builds. In any case, MAJOR PROGRESS!!!
