I just reformated my cpu today, and as i was playing cs today, i got a pop up ad in the middle of cs, so as i returned to cs, my sound had like, lag, i would shoot, and about 1.5 seconds later, i would hear the sound. It was really weird, never, ever hapend to me before i reformated. Im even using the same sound card drivers that i was using before (Im almost positive). So if it isnt the sound card drivers, what could it be? Then just now, i purposely went in a server, alt tabed, and then came back to cs and my sound was fine, so i guess it happens every now and then. ANy help would be apreciated thanks. By the way, im using a sound blaster live.
