Win7 x64 - Sound 'freezing' every boot Tags: Sound Cards Boot X64 Components Last response: August 29, 2011 8:14 PM in Components Share Sappo569 August 29, 2011 8:01:54 PM Hello! Hopefully I can find an answer here Just did a clean install of Win7 X64 on my system, previously had Vista. Everything is great. Fast, better gaming etc. However the sound is making me lose my hair! Specifically upon a boot anything I try to do with sound, play a video, game, even mute/unmute the sound in the mixer causes that application to freeze and have to be ctrl+alt+deleted. Sometimes after a boot I can play a game right away, sound is working. Other times it just hangs on the initial loading screen because it cannot initialize the sound module I think. The tricky part, I am using Logitech G930 headphones (USB), and have nothing plugged into my onboard sound card or the PCI-E Creative X-FI Extreme soundcard. I have disabled the built in NVIDIA HD audio and the Creative card, only leaving the G930 plugged in as the sound device. All drivers are loaded fresh. Is it a compatiblity issue with the G930 and Win7? Perhaps the software is not loading properly.

Try updating your drivers, it might help, not too sure about the rest. oh wait i saw you said all drivers are loaded fresh. Is that from a disc? or did you do it via the net? hmm... im sorry but i dunno what else to say, i guess this will just bumpt he thread if anything. m 0 l Sappo569 August 29, 2011 8:13:50 PM From my research: http://forums.logitech.com/t5/Headphones-Headsets-Micro... This seems to be exactly what I am experiencing... So almost 100% the answer is the G930 device it appears. Anyone have experience dealing with this device? Never had ANY problems with it in Vista, but it seems Win7 is a a whole diff ball of wax m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
