Dialogue cuts out during certain games

So here's my problem.

I have played Mass Effect 2, S.T.A.L.K.E.R Call of Pripyat, Borderlands, and Just Cause 2 (only games i can think of that have this problem)
and the dialogue that the characters speak get cut off when there is a lot of dialogue said (around 2-3 sentence i think).

I have a Realtek ALC888 chip in my mobo which is the GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3L.
I would really like it if this problem is solved, because it does get really annoying when you have multiple games that have this problem.

  1. It would help if you told us the rest of your system specs so we can ensure that it is indeed an issue with the sound chip or not.
  2. Make sure you've your speakers properly configured with windows.. That means if you have a two speaker setup then make sure its configured in windows sound scheme setup as stereo and not as some 5.1 setup etc..
  3. Specs:
    Intel Core 2 Duo E8400
    Gigabyte EP45-UD3L
    4GB Ram
    XFX Ati HD 5850

    I also use head phones for my sound but when i hooked u speakers it still does the same. Also i did try to change it from 7.1/5.1 to Stereo/Quadraphonic but no change ( I changed this by using the Realtek HD Audio Manager)
  4. I also forgot that I have a problem with some or all cut scenes in a game.
    The video is always ahead of the audio and get audio lag.
  5. Have you tried reinstalling? are you on windows? (WINE has these problems).
  6. im on Windows 7 Ultimate.
  7. You definitely have enough hardware to handle everything. The only thing I can think to try is to reinstall the sound driver.
  8. so do i just find a driver from the realtek website and just install that?

    Yes? Uninstall your current driver first.
