I've looked around in many different places but have not found anything conclusive about my problem. The onboard sound on my mobo is 'jagged' at best, sometimes cutting out completely. I sent the comp for the service guys to check it out and they said it appeared to be some kind of 'buffering' problem. This gave me the idea to reduce the directsound acceleration slider in the advanced audio properties to 'basic', which made the problem better, but it never went away. Did anyone else with this board have the same problem, or is it just mine?
