I've recently had a PC built which I have installed win XP on. It seems to work well, however I have a problem with the sound which keeps skipping for less than a second at random times especially whilst playing music mp3, cds, and during games.
I've disabled the onboard sound, used different media programs, and updated the creative drivers but it still does it. Are there any obvious things I could do to fix it?

my pc is:
Asus P4C800 deluxe
P4 3Ghz 800 fsb
512Mb RAM ddr 400
Asus V9560 /TD GeForce FX 5600
Creative Audigy 2
Realtek RTL8139 PCI Fast Ethernet NIC
Win XP sp1

Welcome Majic..........:winkgrin:

Have you tried moving the sound card to another PCI slot?

Try uninstalling the driver then taking the card out. Reboot a couple of times then check in device manager to see if it is gone.

Put the card back in and boot up. When it trys to install the driver point it to the new one you downloaded. That's if the driver is in a folder you created while extracting the driver. If the driver downloaded as an APP then skip the driver installation when prompted and install from the downloaded APP after booting up is finished.
