I think I may have a sound card problem. anytime I try to play a game, any game. my Pc freezes or bsod's and repeats the last part of a word or sound effect in my game, but the weird thing is it only happens once and then I can game on for hours on end.
I find it particularly Odd that it would only happen once and then everything work like it supposed to after I restart my computer.
It is also very frustrating to me that I have to restart it once for games to work, and this happens with all the games I have tried, Battlefield BC2,portal GTA4 and killing floor
OS: Windows Vista Ultimate 64bit
Processor: AMD phenom II X4 940 ~3.0 GHz
Memory: 8190MB RAM
Graphics: 2 nvidia GTX 275s
Sound: C Media PCI 3d Audio device
I have also never had this problem with my old Hard drive. the only thing different it that It had different audio drivers.
If you removed the card and the problem was gone, then either the card is faulty (RMA like ksampanna offered) BUT...
before this, I would try different drivers and see if that helps.
usually drivers cause PCs to crash / freeze or just act in a wierd way
