I've tried like all the drivers they have for sb live...and for some reason, my sound skips when i am using windows....

if i am playing mp3's and i am scrolling thru folders in explorer or surfing the net then my sound make weird skips....

does anyone know what is causing this or how to fix it

(winXP Pro, 850 Duron, abitkt7a raid, 384mb ram, SB live value, geforce2mx, ibm 60gxp hd 40gb(OS), mps's on maxtor 7200 ata66 30gb)

Sounds like a memory (RAM) problem to me

How much you got ?

I would open task manager and see if anything is running in the background ...


What are you using to play the mp3's with ?

I have exactly the same problem with my old live platinum. tried all sorts of different drivers with no success, its beginning to drive me mad, especially as i use my pc for creating music! grrrrrr. someone told me that he read somewhere it could be due to a conflict with a raid controller. iv got a highpoint controller on my abit be62 mobo, but i dont have a raid array set up, just use it for ata100. getting a new mobo next week without raid, so if sound starts working again that must be it i guess.

Mingiunate, do u have a raid controller on your mobo?

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
