Issues with headset and multiple audio software items running at once

Hi all,

I am running an Asus M5A97EVO board on Windows 7 64bit. I run a Logitech G35 headset. So, I left out of province for work last year and was away for 8 months, once I returned I had a Hard drive failure and had to re-install windows on a new harddrive.

I cant recall exactly but I think the following issues came up after the install, they were definantly not there before I went away for work.

I play a PC racing game that uses audio
I use Teamspeak
I listen to Windows Media
I watch YouTube

I used to be able to do all 4 of these at once if I choose to. Now, If I have teamspeak open its hard to get my racing game going, sometimes I have to shutdown teamspeak, then get the game going then try teamspeak again. I cant listen to windows media and youtube videos wont load when I have my game and teamspeak running. If I close them, everything else works normally.

Its like I can only use 1 - 2 audio items at once, its really weird and I am at a loss as to what might be causing this.

Hopefully I have included enough information, anything else let me know and ill get it for you.

Chris,

Do you have the correct hardware sound driver installed? or just the generic, basic function, Windows installed High Definition Audio driver? If its just the High Definition driver, first step is to install the correct hardware sound driver.

You failed to fill in the "My System Spec's" so I can't comment on what the actual sound hardware is.

Hi fireberd, Ive updated my specs. I am just using onboard audio through the MOBO. As for drivers, if you could point me on where to find the information of what I have installed I can pass it along

According to ASUS you have Realtek audio.
Download the Realtek drivers from this link, as the first start.
