    sorry for the double post.

    fix the problem: i read in a forum that someone resolved this issue by turning there nvidia internal sound card accelerator off.

    or by buying a new sound card and uninstalling there old sound drivers.

    start> run> dxdiag> sound tab.

    i also have a problem with the gamesave dir: when i try to save a game, it says "problem with your current save, please check you savegame dir". where is the savegame dir?

    Be sure your power supply isn't going dead.

    No, its practically a brand new PS', besides, Abit EQ says all voltages are in normal state.

    the problem was my integrated nvidia soundcard driver, nvmcp.sys, driver was out dated.
