I recently installed a new graphics card (GeForce 8400 GS, not really "new" but new to me) and now my sound lags and skips (almost sounds like needle skipping on a record in a metal cave.) I noticed that the graphics card installed some kind of HD sound drivers for some reason, so I uninstalled them, but the problem persists. The only other thing I did was update my BIOS, I don't know if that would have affected anything. Any help would be appreciated!
sometimes there follows some hd audio drivers with gpu drivers, try installing drivers again with custom option and see if you can find an answer there
I tried uninstalling the drivers but the process isn't finished until I restart my computer, and my computer keeps automatically re-installing the drivers at start up and I can't seem to find a way to disable it or even stop it while it's happening. I also didn't see any custom options for installing sound drivers, there is only a choice between "search automatically" or "browse my computer" but I wouldn't know where to look.
edit: Should I just get rid of the drivers I usually use and use the new ones instead?
