I have an asus a7v600 mb with athlon 1800+. radeon x800 videoc diamond 7.1 soundc about 40 sec into playing a song sound distorts then plays normal for 40 sec. when I play games such as wow framerate is between 9-25fps. updated drivers for sound, video, chipset, even bios to 1008. Still the same change soundc to blaster audigy se still same. changed videoc to geforce 6600 all with the drivers still the same. removed the sound card fps has returned to normal 65-80 fps in wow. If I enable the on board sound still have the same issues. music can be played either from hard drive or cd any song distorts the same. running windows xp any ideas would be appreciated.
