i have this strange sound error that usually occurs while i'm playing music or video games and results in 'crackley' sound. that is, everything after that point is said or played normally, but with an edge of static to it. for some reason it only occurs in battlefield1942, silent storm and windows media player but i have no idea why.
my card is the inbuilt one that came with my ABIT nf-7s, and i am currently using 'AC97' drivers, allegedly the ones i need according to the people at some silent storm forums i went to.
