    Hi all in this forum,

    Well my problem is clear, high latency causes crackling, its not constant, but it gets pretty annoying >_<

    PD: Drivers updated, also tried YouPax audigy drivers
    I've got audigy 2 value on PCI


    any idea to fix this?


    Playing farcry 2, it starts with no sound crackling, then it starts with a very crackling (latency) as it shows here (i took the screenshot a few secs after a "crack" in sound)

    [​IMG][​IMG]


    After playing for a long time, it start with more frequently cracks, and then it finishes like this, with continous -_-".



    [​IMG]

    also happens with sacred 2 specially in a zone in which my pc suffers a lot


    Is there anyway to give sound card more preference in pc tasks? (my onboard is disabled), or make it dont suffer pc latency :S

    Thx for reading and maybe answering :p,

    I formatted my windows partition, since i had been long time without do that, the problem its less frequent now, but it happens again,

    Also changed PCI slot, no effect :(

    If any help my motherboard is a cheap ass one, asus m2v :/, and pci latency is set at 64, tried 256 and 32 (max min values) and no change

    thx for your answer anyways =)


    Ill report tomorrow, i found a web in which there are adressed many crackling issues with audigy, and my pc seems the Guru of those mixed in one xP, altho i can solve em all i think.
