I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)


I worked for 3 days to get my audio back. Finally I can play music, and watch a Youtube video/audio. Now the problem is my quicklaunch buttons on my keyboard do not respond to what is playing.
The mute button checks the mute box on the startup icon, but does not mute sound.
Same with the volume slider on the keyboard, it slides on the icon, but does not raise/lower the volume.
Also, plugging in a set of headphones does not silence the external laptop speakers... they keep playing.
My internal microphone will not function for skype or pass any of the Windows XP tests...
Can anyone help me sort this out please?

The audio is conexant.

This laptop does terrible video, youtube, netflx etc... Must be dropping lots of frames.

So I am trying different drivers and the laptop locks up.
So I restarted in safe mode, and the video is very good, smooth, normal looking.
No sound in safemode so that is not good to use as is.

I have rebooted back and forth, so was wondering what is safemode doing that the nvidia driver cant do in normal mode?

I have tried laptop2govideo for drivers. Running 296, 297 drivers, they can load but if I started chrome or firefox, the video after a minute locks up or turns black. I then discovered if you turn off aero, then the video will stay on, but the video playback quality is bad, jerky, etc...

So how can I get safemode type normal video quality and also have sound?

I know the video card is old but if safe mode looks good, cant it be made to work?
Also, safe mode the laptop is much quicker navigating file manager, everything seems peppy .

I have a HP DV9000 laptop. The screen display is black. The screen sometimes comes back after a restart. I can also see the display if I connect it to an external monitor. I have done a clean reinstall of Windows Vista to no avail. I have tried to remove the battery and place it back in with no results. Can someone advise on this issue?

Thanks in advance.

This looks like a good forum, I'm hoping someone can help me out here. My Dell XPS 1530m isn't playing video properly now. I don't know if its the video card (nvidia 8600m gt), vista, or something else. Dell just replaced my motherboard and it seemed to start after that. Here are the problems I'm having:

-When I play a video the application goes to "not responding". It happens in WMP, itunes, and even when I try to watch a youtube vid.

-When I try to move the volume slider it freezes and says "not responding".

- Sometimes if I wait long enough the video will play but the audio gets a lot of static.

-If an application is hung up shutdown takes a long time.

I ran Dell diagnostics and it found no problems. When I told Dell tech support this they said I need to reload vista on my system and they thought a hardware issue would show up on the diagnostics. I would prefer not to have to reload vista and I somehow shut off my back-up/retore so I have no restore points. Also, I did reinstall new audio and nvidia drivers and it didn't help. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas I would certainly appreciate them.

I have an IBM ThinkCentre Model MT-M 8113, M55 that had a LINUX operating system on it. I have since removed the LINUX system and replaced it with Windows XP, SP2. The problem is after the LINUX system was removed the audio and video drivers that worked on the LINUX system no longer work with the Windows system. The second part of the problem is that this computer is used in an environment that has NO INTERNET ACCESS! Is there a set of drivers that can be downloaded to a flash drive or written to a CD that will allow the computer to utilize the audio/video components of the Windows operating system?

Put all of the appropriate info in there. I tried to find yours manually but I may be missing some serial info.

Also, if you can bite the bullet and just move the machine for a few to where you can get a connection, they have a "find my model" app on there that would make your life so much easier...

On Sunday my PC did a restart over night, and since then I've had issues with sound, video, and running games. I can't seem to pin down the problem. When I'm in a game the video has become laggy and FPS drops significantly, and always accompanied by crackling and tearing in the audio. Even when the video isn't lagging the audio still crackles. It also does this, though not as bad, if I'm playing audio and attempt to drag my chrome window around. I tried removing the realtek audio drivers, thinking that was the case, and it seemed to make it better briefly. No matter what I try to do to block the updates, it always seems to come back in 10-15 minutes after boot.

I tried posting this on the 'multimedia' thread and I thought I'd post it here because it might be more relevant, but here's the original post:

I have an issue with dvd and cd playback.

I was trying to play a DVD on my girlfriend's laptop yesterday and it started doing something weird. The closest thing I can describe it as is "skipping," though it seems a little more like the audio and video are slightly lagging and being stretched and distorted... or something. Now I'm pretty sure it's the drive because I tried playing a burned DVD, a CD, and a burned CD and they all did the same thing but music and video played directly from the hard drive works perfectly.

I tried cleaning all the discs and the drive lens but it didn't help.

Do you guys have any ideas on what's causing this and how I can fix it? Any help would be much appreciated.

I have a strange thing happening. I am producing some clips which are CGI that are all put together in Premiere Pro, After Effects and Encore 1.5. I have a problem that when I preview in premier or encore there is a massive out of synch issue with the audio and video. This problem occurs also when I view any finished avi files using Window media player 11. The problem is not there if I view using quicktime. The bizarre thing in WMP11 is that if I just tweak the brightness slider then the video catches up and everything is ok. The main issue is when I am editing the clips and previewing them in prem and encore, there is no slider for me to tweak to see if I have my timings correct etc.

Maybe I am wrong but it would seem the problem is shared between the adobe stuff and WMP11. Is there any codec issues maybe as it seems strange that the clips work fine in QT.

I look forward to your advice.

I've been having an issue with audio and video playback for quite a while now. Basically when I try to play video in Windows Media Player the video runs very slowly. If I play it in Divx player the video plays slowly but speeds up to catch up with the audio every now and then.

The problem also arises while browsing; when I scroll up and down on a page any audio I have playing in the background slows down while I scroll.

If I'm using Windows Live messenger the same happens whenever I enter or recieve a message.

My PC specs are.

Okay, let me flat out start with, I can NOT stand to use windows 8.1. I am very familiar with W7 and XP but windows 8 just looks, and feels like it was made for a 9 year old who out grew his tablet.

I have had this machine for about 3 months now.... I honestly do not enjoy using it what-so-ever. Finding anything is a nightmare... I refuse to even acknowledge the existence of the "Start Screen". Infact, the first thing I accomplished is deleting every icon off of it except the desktop icon. I do plan to buy another hard-drive and putting windows 7 on it (W10 does not interest me either). But for the time being I have to deal with the issues present... (Sorry I just had to rant a little, it's been building up since the first time I turned the PC on)

The issues...
Audio lag - The audio lags for EVERYTHING, no matter the program, all audio lags. I have tried reinstalling the drivers, made sure they were all updated, disabled/re-enabled nothing solves the issue. I have found a strange temp work around... If I boot the machine and blast threw everything as quickly as it will allow me and play a video file (no matter the source, WMP, Netflix, ect) The audio will sync and stayed sync, anywhere from a min to till I shutdown (it appears to be random). I've googled searched till my eyes couldn't focus anymore on the screen trying to fix this issue. And honestly I'm tired of looking..

Good day!I decided to upgrade my RAM last week. Everything seemed to go perfect. My computer runs significantly faster/smoother!! But...I have stumbled upon an annoying audio/video problem...Almost every time I go to full screen mode (ranging from youtube to video games), the audio slows down, crackles and pretty much sounds like poo. When I first discover this, it was on youtube. I suspected the site might have been having issues. The next day nothing changed so I went ahead and made sure all my drivers (audio/video) were up to date and re-installed. I have 2 audio devices installed (on-board and PCI slot). The issue seemed to have been limited to my PCI audio device but today, after playing 2Moons online game, I discovered that the on-board audio device had the same issue. Maybe it's the audio? Maybe it's the video? (ISSUE OCCURS DURING FULL-SCREEN MODES EXCLUSIVELY)My RAM is dual channel. My PC came with 2x512mb on one channel.

A:Audio/Video Issues after upgrading RAM

Hello & welcome jayocal.First a question if I may, how are you identifying the channels to fit memory on the system board?If as you say your system came fitted with 2 x 512M DIMMs in one channel, it will not be running dual channel, which will reduce memory bandwidth. And if you added 2 x 1GB DIMMs to the other channel, then the system will still not be running dual channel, since dual channel (on almost all boards) requires the same size and configuration of DIMMs in each channel.Boards normally color code the channels, eg :For your current configuration to to run dual channel on the board above, there would normally need to be a 1G and a 512M DIMM in the slots for each color. (Their order may or may not matter, but it should be the same in each. Sometimes an unsuitable arrangement will stop a system from booting up. In that case, turn off & reverse it. I hope you are aware you must turn the system off at the mains before changing memory, not just into standby.)If your board looks more like this:the sequence will be different but the requirements for each channel will be similar.Are you able to confirm please what arrangement of DIMMs you have used already, and if none have followed the color sequence with 1G & 512M in each, would you care to try it and let us know if it makes any difference to the system's behavior?

hey guys. I recently been having so many problems with audio sync issues when mounting a 3D image. Video plays fine in my media player. (have tried totalmediatheater and poweriso11 seems to be the best so far). anyway it seems like it plays fine in 2D but 3D is giving it audio sync issues. I think ive pinpointed the problem and ive found that disabling my motherboard audio driver (intel) and enabling nvidia audio seems to have a better effect in 3D playback (again mounting). ive tried a few different 3d image backups by the way, i also didnt have a problem with intel hd drivers playing 3D but intel drivers started to give me a BSOD which lead me to buy a nvidia card for 3D. So back to the issue. Is there a way to have both audio drivers installed becuase I switch from tv to monitor for display and I have external speakers that I would like to use instead of my tv audio. I also have the latest nvidia drivers, chipset drivers, directx and most up to date bios. im running windows 7 64bit, gigabyte mobo, geforce gt 520, 12gb ram, intel i5 2500. Also says nvidia hdmi output not plugged in, in windows sound properties if someone can explain that. sorry for such a long typed problem.

A:Having Issues with multiple audio drivers getting audio sync issues.

I have to enable intel driver then reboot so I can use my external speakers, any easier way without rebooting and keep switching audio drivers.

I have three separate problems but I thinking they are related to hardware.

OS: Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium
Computer: Acer Am3100-U3201A
Motherboard: Acer F690GVM
BIOS: Phoenix Tech 6.00 PG (10/10/2007).

I have downloaded and installed all the updated drivers for the components in question and none of them work. Could it be a BIOS/motherboard issue?

The three problems are:

1) NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT
If I enable this, my system hangs at the Windows Start Screen

2) Marvell Yukon 88E8056 ethernet card
Never got it work after trying every solution on the web.

3) RealTek High Definition Audio
"No Audio output device is installed"
Windows was trying to install this as Unimodem Half Duplex Audio Device. After screwing around I manually installed it as the Realtek device.

Since none of these are working I am thinking there is a root cause to all the problems?

Any ideas?

Hello! I am using a Lenovo Ideapad 100s and having a 2 issues when using a Skype-like meeting program called Zoom: (1) Audio becomes very choppy - both my audio of other people, and their audio of me. Speech is barely perceptible. Happens usually 10-40 minutes into a meeting. Sometimes moving closer to my wifi source (Comcast seems to help, other times not. (2) Cannot click any program. Can use taskbar and task manager, can move mouse, can continue speaking on Zoom, but can't interact by mouse with Zoom, Chrome, etc. Also happens usually about 10-40 minutes into a call. Only solution I've found is to restart the computer. I've borrowed a friend's computer and it seems that neither of these issues come up. Also they seem to be made worse by group meetings. No issues with the computer when not using Zoom. My computer: Lenovo Ideapad 100S 80R200BWUS (11.6" HD - Intel Atom - 2GB Ram - 32GB SSD)Could it be related to the RAM? Or Wifi?

Hello, and thank you in advance for your help. A few months ago, my system became infected: namely, AntiMalware Doctor and the Google redirect virus. After getting some help from Microsoft Customer Support, I found your forums. Since then, I have received lots of help from Malware Response Team member Sempai. I'm happy to say the infections appear to be gone; however, some issues seem to persist. Audio & video is choppy and stuttered. This occurs with all audio and video, from my own music and videos on my HD to youtube and other streaming video to games run through flash, java, etc. The only site that doesn't seem to be choppy is Hulu. For some reason, their video comes through with no issue. My main issue is with SlingPlayer, an application that uses my SlingBox (a device hooked to my cable box that allows me to stream my television online) that worked with no problems before. Now, it is unwatchable, due to the extreme stuttering. I have tried letting it buffer, but no amount of storing up the video seems to matter. Also, youtube and other streaming videos tend to run a little better once I have let them completely load, but it doesn't always work and it isn't perfect. Whenever I Restart my computer, the audio controls on my machine stop working, and the Volume icon on my system tray disappears. I effectively have no volume control.

So, I recently updated to Windows 10 - partially feel like that was a mistake now, but oh well. Most of the issues I have with it are just connected to it having different design than windows 7, and me being overly used to Win 7, so I guess it'll wear off.

There is, however, one severe problem I noticed when trying to play back some AVI files of CoD gameplay I had stored on an external harddrive. They played in Windows Media Player, but showed no video; in fact, it instead showed the musical note that is characteristic for when you play back files in WMB that are audio only. However, the audio from the AVI file still played. I know for a fact that the files aren't corrupt or so because they are playable on another computer of mine which runs on Windows 7, and they used to work just fine on this computer too before I installed Windows 10, *at least as far as I remember.*

And it's not just in WMP you only get the audio. Also when importing the files into Vegas pro 12 and After Effects CS6 I get a black video preview that only plays back audio.

And here comes the final crux: it's just some AVI files that you can't see the video of. After some testing and thinking I figured out that the files i couldn't play were AVI files recorded with Fraps, and the playable ones were recorded with Dxtory.

I'd love some thoughts on this if anyone has ideas, and if you want more info on some area in order to maybe understand what the problem might be, just tell me. Anything to get help! >... Read more

I just installed Windows 8 Pro on a new machine.

I carried over my HD7970 from my old Windows 7 machine. I had absolutely no issues with audio in Windows 7, but Windows 8 has been a huge pain in the ass.

I have two displays, an HDTV connected through HDMI and an older LCD connected via DVI.

All my audio comes through the TV. In fact, I've disabled the onboard audio device on the motherboard. So I am strictly using the Radeon card for audio.

One thing I noticed is that the Audio tab in the Catalyst Control Center says "Your displays do not support audio...", but it shows my Panasonic TV in the Playback devices. The playback does work, but I get weird mutes.

If I go full screen in Youtube or Netflix the sound mutes for like 30 seconds. When I do ANYTHING (change tabs in Chrome, click a link, move windows around in a VM) on the other display, the sound mutes for 30 seconds. I basically am unable to do anything on my other display while something is streaming. It's irritating beyond belief.

Does anyone have a solution for me?

A:HDMI Audio issues. Full screen video mutes (and more).

Well, for a while my problem was solved. I uninstalled the Realtek drivers (since I wasn't using the device) and reinstalled the AMD drivers and all seemed fine for a while. But I just started my computer up after I had put it to sleep and it's doing the same thing again, even after a restart.

Hi All,

I've been having issues with latency after a recent build and fresh install of Win 7 Home Premium. When playing video (especially online) I see horizontal bars flash randomly on the video screen. I also hear audio crackles / cut outs when I'm playing music through Foobar and browsing the web - usually when navigating to a new page, opening a new tab, mousing over an auto-dropdown, these types of things.

I've been reading up on these issues, and have updated my Realtek drivers. I've been using a Rosewill wireless USB adapter for internet, but have noticed the same issues when connected directly to my modem as well. Only thing is, I don't see iusb3xhc.sys affecting latency any longer when I'm connected directly.

When I disable my LAN controller, I see the issue with ndis.sys disappear and it's not affecting my latency as reported by Latency Monitor.

When directly connected, I do still see ndis.sys coming up as a latency issue in Latency Monitor.

I have just uninstalled my Nvidia video drivers to see what effect it would have on the Latency Monitor finding dxgkrnl.sys being the King of latency-causing affairs on my troubled system. Now, this file is not causing issues.

So, now, being directly connected to my modem, with no video drivers installed, the issues come up as seen in my attachment. ACPI.sys and ndis.sys.

I'm at wit's end, what is my next step to get this fixed?

Thanks ahead of time for your assistance!

Youtube it plays fine.....until you go into Full Screen mode, then it's garbled...you can't make it out what anyone is saying during play back in F\S mode. Another problem I have is Encoding videos do the exact same thing!

Last night I downloaded a freeware program that was on my old box called "Panzera mp4 to avi converter 1.3" it's a great program. My Camera uses the Mp4 format and I am not too fond of quicktime just to run that format. The reason I am trying to convert them is to kill the file size and make "nolstalgia" DvD for the family. the Mp4 plays fine however,no sound problems in the original clip.

My video and sound cards are up to date, My video card is a Geforce 8400 GS. Running on a AMD Athlon 64 processor at 2.20 ghz with 1 gb of ddr. Anyone ever had this problem? I tried Divx and Xvid thinking it was a codec problem. boy was I wrong. any suggestions is welcomed.

I installed DirectX9.0c, I have Divx and Xvid codecs. My sound drivers are up to date. I unhooked the onboard sound and uninstalled sound max after buying the Diamond. A friend told me I should disable the onboard sound entirely but I can't find the option in the bios. My mother board is a "Asus A8x socket 939" board. Any helps please? I am desperate!

Okay, About three months ago, I got hacked HARD...permissions were changed, administrator rights were removed from my administrator accounts, etc. i was flabbergasted. THe iactually didn't bother me though until I ran a MBAM scan and found 133 viruses and spyware instances on my drive (NOT including tracking cookies!). I cleaned and recleaned, using MBAM, SuperantiSpyware, Avira, running each one in safe mode first, then loading into my normal account and running them, and finally erasing my user account and creating a new one. But even after the new user account was created with Administrator privileges, I still routinely received virus and Malware threat warnign flags from MBAM and Avira. Eventually, Avira and MBAM were disabled and Avira was "deleted" (Windows will not uninstall because the setup.exe file has been 'Changed" and won't reinstall it because I don't have "Administrator privileges" on my Administrator accounts!) even though at startup I receive an error message saying that Avira has been corrupted. The most telling issue is that antivirus and spyware/Malware scans come up clean on Safe mode scans, but using my normal account, the machine reboots. Using Superantispyware I notice that it's always during the memory test that this occurs (and in Safe Mode, it passes through this section with no issue). None of my antivirus programs will download updates, even ones I start manually, and although I have no problem acc... Read more

After having my motherboard, graphics card and RAM replaced due to a power surge, I have been experiencing high audio latency, along with very poor sound quality which includes static noise, crackling. The sound is similar to that of an untuned radio.
The sound quality is decent when I am running limited audio programs, but when I run multiple (Such as Skype + Youtube), the sound quality starts to become poor.
The sound quality also becomes poor quite frequently when I am only running one audio program.\

I've already tried going into Device manager and disabling/reenabling drivers to see if they were the cause of the problem.
I've also tried updating the drivers to the latest version.

Not really sure what to do now, help is appreciated gratefully.
System specs:
Windows 8.1
Intel i5-4570 @3.20GHz
8GB Kingston HyperX DDR3
Sapphire HD 7850 OC 2GB GDDR5
ASRock B85M Pro 4 New Version

EDIT: Searched online, pretty much have 0 dedication to fix this myself, and decided it was time for a fresh windows 8.1. So I reinstalled windows :3

A:Audio issues (Static + crackling) and high audio latency

FWIW, the DPC Latency Checker is not fully Win 8 compatible (there is notice on their web site) and it can give you false latency hits.

The Resplendence Latency monitor is Win 8 compatible.

First of all here are my specs:

Computer is an E-Machines T2642.
Motherboard: IM845GV
OS: Windows XP Home Edition (service pack 1)

Now my problem. About 4 days ago my sound stopped working on my computer. I checked the device manager and found multimedia audio controller listed as an other device with a question mark next to it. The properties lists the device as not having any drivers installed. I have tryed installing and rolling backthe drivers to no effect.

Another problem that I seem to have is my network connections shows a local area connection as having a network cable unpluged, with the device name being Realtek RTL8139/810X Family PCI Fast Ethernet NIC. I have tryed unintalling the realtek device and adding it again, but when I do it seems to generate the unknown multimedia audio controller which I suspect is the source of my problem.

So any advice on what exactly I need to do to fix this and get the sound back? At this point I suspect that the "sound card" on my motherboard may be fried. Help would be appricaited.

A:No audio/sound. Multimedia audio controller issues.

Hi, i have an HP dv9000 laptop with a broken headphone jack. The headphone jack was working and i was listening to music while it broke. My laptop has two headphone jacks and a microphone jack. The two headphone jacks both broke at the same instant when i plugged in a second headphone. The problem seems to be hardware related because when both versions of windows that i have installed, windows 7 and windows xp, do not give out sound to the headphone jacks. Good thing i have another laptop of the exact same model that broke a while back. i could take the needed part from the broken computer and build it into the working one. All i need is some instructions on how to do so.
Thank you for any help.

Hi guys,

Can you guys help me? It has been bugging me for sometime now. I reformatted my PC after it crashed (XP keeps on freezing) and installed all the necessary motherboard drivers after. The installation went smoothly and the device manager show no conflicting drivers or whatsoever.

However, i noticed that i am hearing no audio. I checked the following:

Control Panel -> Sounds & Audio Devices
- Speaker Settings is grayed out (meaning unclickable)
- Device Volume is grayed out

- In the Sounds tab, even the 'play' button is grayed out.
- In the Audio tab, both Sound playback and Sound recording are showing no options.

I tried some troubleshooting by going to Accessories -> Entertainment -> Volume Control and tried to place the volume icon into the task manager, it is saying that i have no audio hardware installed.

I visited the MSI & RealTek sites, searched, downloaded and installed the latest SiS 745 and AC97 drivers but to no avail. I am also installing the chipset driver first before the audio drivers. Onboard audio is also enabled in BIOS. I also even tried reformatting twice. The problem still persists.

These are the items under Device Managers -> Sound, Video & Game Controllers
Audio Codecs
Legacy Audio Drivers
Media Control Devices
Video Codecs

I notice no instance of any RealTek drivers in that.

Note that my PC was already on WinXP before i reformatted it, so it *should not have* given me any p... Read more

A:Audio issues with SiS 745 chipset and AC97 Audio

The easiest way to see if this is a driver/windows problem and not a hardware one is to boot using a knoppix/ubuntu LiveCd, since these are intializing the sound devices without any drivers.

Okay, from what I can tell I have a Lenovo Ideapad z510, and the audio is really messed up. It's been like this for about a year, and I have no idea why. I don't really see anybody else with this problem and I can't figure out what's causing it, but a tech guy I know told me it probably had something to do with moisture. So basically: No sound at all without headphones/external speakers. Headphones/external speakers only play through one earphone/speaker, which is really frustrating because I've tried multiple pairs of headphones and all of them have the same problem. But, (this is the weird part) if I pull the headphone plug out a little bit and twist it, it'll play what should be through only the right earphone through both. Please help?

hi everybody,
i've got an intel D945GNT board with XP pro installed. at my initial installation, the audio installation was smooth and there are no audio problem, but suddenly (after about 3 days) the volume control on my bottom right of the desktop is missing and checking the the Control Panel>Sound and Audio Devices>Volume; Audio; Voice were greyed.

I have done the following but cannot solve my audio problem:
1. i've formatted and freshly installed the XP pro, then after this, installed Intel's Express CD, but intel audio failed in the installation.
2. Checked the audio on the BIOS (the Audio & Legacy Audio was enabled).
3. Checked the Run>Services.msc>Windows Audio, it indicated that it started.
4. Uninstall the ff: Control Panel>Add or Remove Program>High Definition Audio Driver Package -KB835221, and Control Panel>System>Hardware>Device Manager>System devices>Microsoft UAA Bus Driver for High Definition Audio.
then installed again the Express CD-it failed again.
then repeat the uninstallation process above, then installed the latest audio & chipset drivers at Intel's Website, but it also failed to solve my problem.

Can anyone help me with these??? i've been on several day in solving my problem with no success...

also, if i had a busted onboard soundcard, does anyone know any software to confirm that it is really busted.

I'm trying to get a simple headset (mic in and speaker jack) to work, I want sound come out of the speakers on the headset and i want to be able to talk.

I've used windows updater to download the drivers and such for my computer because the factory drivers on the website were not working properly.

I have zero idea what options to select with all these things to get this to work, on my older pc I simply plugged my jacks into the front of my case and it worked.

Installed card as required, drivers on everything are up to date. Bios is vanilla and I hear about dual core processor drivers but I can't find any.

My problem is. While performing some strenuous tasks on my computer I.E. Gaming and listening to a media player (I used to be able to do this no problem)doesn't matter which one I get terrible crackling noises and frame rates bite the dust hard. I don't even have to have a media player open sometimes it just starts failing in the middle of a gun fight and I have watched processor performance in the task manager and it is insane, both cores up at 50% just idle and if I grab the task manager window and wiggle it it shoots to 80% on both cores lol... if I open the Creative Driver Device and click Default... everything goes normal for a little while (like right now I am posting this and listening to Winamp). as long as I don't do anything to demanding.

A:Serious Audio Issues

I've never heard of an audio device directly affecting frame rates so this almost sounds like a directx or software problem to me. Do you get any error messages at all or program crashes? I would run the directx diagnostics tool just to see if there is any file corruption and to test out the sound options. It might also be a good idea to disable hardware acceleration for the new sound card and see if that effects anything. If it doesn't then the problem exists someplace other than directx or sound card drivers.
