Platinum !live and crackeling sound



I've updated with all the newest drivers from creative, still the sound is crackeling. When ever I open a program it does it. but when its sits there with nothing running its fine. Open a program does it, close one, does it. When im playing music it even worse. i really cannot work and play music at the same time, it drives me nuts. Could it be a memory issue? I have 256 megs, and it didn't ever do it when I ran 2000 pro. HELP!

Where is your soundcard placed...if it is anywhere next to a harddrive controller card or your video card you want to move it.. I've learned if possible it's best to separate the soundcard away from other cards so there is no interference.

Had it next to my vid errors...had it next to my Raid controller got cracking during HD I put it all by it's lonsome and wallah! not a peep but clear sound :)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
