Windows 7: Sound keeps cutting in and out during in-game videos

04 Nov 2009   #1

Win 7 64-bit
Sound keeps cutting in and out during in-game videos

Every 5 seconds or so, my sound will cut out for about half a second and then come back. This only happens during in-game videos (like when Call of Duty 5 is loading a mission) or while a game is starting up (like when Borderlands is flashing its creator logos before the game menu appears). The sound works fine during actual gameplay, for music (iTunes), or any other sounds on my system. Please help!

Btw, I'm running Soundblaster X-Fi XtremeGamer with the newest drivers on Win 7 64-bit.

Update bios if one is available. Tweak settings in there by following guides that you find online about your specific hardware/ram/mainboard.

Disable any ports not in use such as parallel or serial etc...
