Hello all, first time poster here at Tom's. Nice to be a part of the community. Anyways, to the problem...
I built my system about a year ago, with windows xp. Everything was fine, after a while I got the Creative Sound Blaster x-fi xtremegamer sound card. Again everything was fine (after installing drivers). Well I recently did a reformat and installed windows 7. Installed all of my games, programs and drivers. All was well I thought. I proceeded to log on to World of Warcraft and joined a battle ground, where multipule people are in a very close vacinity so a cluster of sounds usually come flying out of the speakers due to the many spells being casted. The sound becomes very bad, hard to explain the sound exactly just seems poor quality, a bit crackly, i would explain the sound as being crunchy. Not crisp and clear. Would anyone have any light to shed on this problem?
Well i disabled the realtek onboard sound... still low quality. I was told by someone else to whipe ALL audio drivers and re download just the one i need again. how do i find and delete all audio drivers and do u recomend that
Do you have a nice video card?
Did you get a new one recently?
I have worked on computer that had interference from the video card.
My suggestion would be the same as ibnsina.
Try a different PCI port. (further away from the video card if possible)
