I know a friend with that problem and he uses Win XP. Funny thing is that I didn't have the problem before (it was my machine) but I also was using the onboard audio and not a pci card. I thought it was his soundblaster card

Yeah, if you look around there are people using just about every make and model of audio card and experiencing this problem. I don't consider xp a fix as it's a dx10 game.

FYI this issue has been around before Windows 7 was released -

- inCrysis - Crysis Forums / Crysis sound problem
- Corrupt sound / sound crackling - Crysis Tech Help - Crysis: EA Forums

The sound issue has also been reported in Crysis Warhead as well - Corrupt sound / sound crackling - Crysis Tech Help - Crysis: EA Forums. Someone posted a fix in that thread but it doesn't look promising.

Hmmmm, either I am not making myself understood or you are not reading my posts correctly... I never said that XP was a fix, I did said my friend had the same problem and he is using XP since you mentioned it was a windows 7 issue.

Personal experience sorry, it worked properly back when I had xp. It worked in vista. Now that I have 7, this is when the problem developed for me.
I've pretty much given up on it at this point. Short of changing hardware there seems to be no fix for my system, and it just doesn't seem worth it to play one game.

Do you have a soundblaster card? if so, have you tried uninstalling the driver and software and running the onboard chipset only?

Sorry, just saw your system specs and you do have a soundblaster card

Yeah, in a last ditch effort after my last post here, I pulled that card and tried a old generic no name card I had in the other room, the effect was even worse than with this one. On top of that I'm still trying to get things back to normal with this one now, for some reason it's decided to fight me over my headset...
