I'm think this is the same issue others are having, but wanted to post anyway to see if there is a possible solution somewhere I've missed while searching the forums.
My soundcard is a SB X-Fi Fatality Gamer (one with Xram) - rest of system specs should be correct (I'll double check after I finish this post).
I'll play one of my games for a while, any game, and sound will start crackling and/or go out altogether. Once I exit the game system sounds are normal, but if I go into any other game, sounds start out cracking or don't even start at all until either the game crashes or I reboot the system.
Sometimes this will happen if I've surfed the web or done anything else first then try to play a game.
I've tried Creative's drivers
, Daniel_K's drivers, and a couple of the PAX drivers with no difference.
Is this the same issue others are having and if so are there any solutions other than going to onboard sound (which is disabled in bios for now - no drivers installed either). I'd prefer the SB because the sounds are much better.
Thanks in advance.....
