    Whenever I start a mission it starts to make these horrible sounds and i cant even have the volume turned up. I dont even really know how to explain it but its a very annoying sound. Just wondering if anyone knew if it was a known problem or not?Thanx

    Is the sound very distorted ?like crackly?,as mine does the same thing with a creative live sound-card installed..with onboard sound it is fine.
    Try turning your sound acceleration down it may help.

    Just seen a similar thread below this with a similar answer so maybe merge these threads together

    Yea thats the sound its making, It really annoying, but it must be a problem with the sound blaster lives. I tried turning the sound acceleration all the way down and the only one that works is turning it completly off so who knows. If anyone knows anything else let me know.

    Fixed My problem

    All I did was put the Real drivers from creative on, instead of the ones you would get from windows update. Now it works just fine :D

    I had the same problem. First update to version 1.2, then turn on hardware acceleration in sound options. This worked for me.

    There is a registery fix to stop the crackle.

    I would also suggest to buy a Audigy 2 or buy a Audigy and used hacked drivers which I did and I get 63 Voices :) instead of 31 :( . In BF42 The sound comming from my speakers are soooo sweet.
