XP Sounds cuts in and out with video

By adza ·
I have problems with XP and sound. What happend is when i'm in games particurly the video clips the sound cuts in and out. I have tried everything i can think of and still it has this problem!! I have an AMD 1800+ CPU with a gigabyte 7DX+ motherboard, geforce 4 video card. I have disabled the onboard sound and put in a Vibra 128 pci sound card but it does the same thing!! I've got all the updated drivers, flashed the bios.
Any idea's would be appreciated before i see how well this computercan fly!!.... out the window!!

I had the same problem with most any sound/video configuration. I changed to a Soundblaster audigy in win 98 and now everything seems fine. the ac97 sound on board was terrible with handling sound.
I'm using an amd 900 duron with 384 meg of ram.
Can you return the Vibra? Look up prices for sound blaster cards in pricewatch.com for good deals. Otherwise try a little maintainance on the hard drive. Run Scandisk, and defrag to clear up some space and see if it improves.
Good luck

How fast is your cdrom/dvd drive? If its a 5x dvd or slower or 24xcd or slower I'ld try replacing that. Also is dma access enabled for cdrom/dvd?
Did the video answers pan out?

If you have any soiund effects set up for the sound card try removing them in the sound card control settings.

Think that the problem lies within XP itself instead of your hardware.

As usual, there should be patches available within shortwhile.

Yup, waiting for patches is terrible especially when this become a habit from Microsoft. But I do praise them as well for making quite beautiful product like Win2K.

Replace the video card.

I assumed you already installed M/B drivers.
Try to update your video driver with Detonator 4.
