Asus A7V133 and Creative audigy 5.1 conf

By Barry Pie ·
Just replaced my old sound card (creative PCI12 with a Creative Audigy 5.1. I'm a game player when not at work but I now find that most of my games stutter horrendously, getting stuck in sound loops and so forth and displaying 1 frame per couple of seconds. I've tried a fresh install but the problem remains. I've also moved the sound card to the furthest PCI slot from the AGP slot (under advice from the vendor), still with no effect. Anyone have any suggestions?

For my new computer, I avoided the Audigy because it had a reputation for sucking up IRQs -- 2 or 3 IRQ's in use by one card!

The advice to find the latest drivers and s/w for the card is a good place to start. A visit to the device manager tosee what resources the Audigy is taking up may alos provide some insight to make the trouble shooting easier.

Also, don't forget the basic stuff -- make sure the BIOS is set ofr a PnP operating system, and set it to reset the CMOS device data (I don't remember the exact verbage, but it's a yes/no choice right under the PnP OS setting)
