Hey Everyone:
Just got my brand spanking new Turtle Beach Santa Cruz sound card. Unforunately, having problems with it. I downloaded the newest drivers from Turtle Beach Support website. Install just like the installation instructions. Around 40% installing the software my computer will freeze. ctrl+alt+del to end program then another Ctrl+alt+del to restart. The drivers will pick up and install. Then if I go to restart or shutdown, and then open internet explorer, my sounds emits a high frequency pitch for all windows default sounds. I can go to control panel then sounds-all windows default sounds come the high pitch that sends my dog away. Music, movies play fine though. Annoying when I surf web because new website, instead of the click I get high pitch sound. Thanks you all for your help.

Hmm, you have the weirdest setup ever! A 2GHz P4 with 128MB RAM? Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Back on topic, you may have a bad card.

It may be a bad card, but it's definitely worth trying another driver version. The newest one isn't always the best one.

yes that is odd, 128 mb...thats very low.... I think you could use atleast 256mb, or 512

Only have 128 MB of RAM will definitely slow down your computer a lot.
