My GF’s computer’s onboard sound never worked (all drivers loaded properly, but no output. C-Media, anyone?) so I slapped an old Avance ALS4000 PCI sound card in her computer, disabled the onboard in the BIOS, and ran the driver program. Now she has sound, but it’s stuttering VERY fast, like listening to it underwater. Any tips on how to correct this?
Seriously, though, the drivers are the newest and spiffiest, OS is updated, etc. Sorry for not including that in my post. I was just hoping someone had run across this particular card/problem before.
I’ll probably go the route of buying new card. The mobo drivers are the ones that came with the mobo, plus the latest updates, and still no go. There’s quite a bit of flap on the net about how the card is teh suck, so I’m going to take one more stab at getting it going, then bite the bullet.
In other news, while trying to remove a virus, I managed to frag half of Window’s security boot package, csrss.exe. Had a fun time finding a bootable registry editor, figuring out the syntax, and restoring the keys.
