    Same mobo, Same onboard Audio, Same issue

    Yeahp.. I have the same mobo, just the M2N-SLI, Same CMedia 6501, and with the CD drivers... I get the same damn thing..

    Plays great for an 30min or so, and u gotta love the features that this drivers come with, but, after that 30m its just crackle snap pop!! SO... u gotta open up that little music note and just change it to like headphones, or 4 speakers, or 2 speakers, just change 1 setting and starts working fine again for 30minutes, gets old, and annoying.. wish there was a fix for this for XP SP2, cause no way in heck will I use Vista!!

    Ugh~

    Possible Fix

    I had same problem you are having and this fix worked for me. Hope it does for you as well

    I kept trying different drivers till I found one that fixed the problem. Try using 5.12.2.4219 Good Luck

    It would be great if you could post a link to that download you found, to help others who have the same issue (aka: me)

    The EXACT same thing is happening to me, except that my sound lasts less than 2 minutes before it starts crackling. And also, when I uninstall, I get that USB PnP Audio thing, the sound works great, but I cannot use a mic in any program besides windows sound recorder.

    I've spent the better part of 2 months looking for a solution to this issue, and still no luck. Any help from anyone is GREATLY appreciated.

    There is no fix(as far as I know)

    C-Media's Tech support is non existant and asus dosent seem to help much either. I have the same problem.

    Reinstalled the drivers countless times nothing fixed it.

    I ended up ripping the Sound card out of an old dell and i somehow got it to work with vista
