I have just installed a Soundblaster Live 24 sound card (to replace the faulty RealTek AC97 on board). Everything works OK except the sound briefly stutters (interrupts) everytime I open an application or navigate to another web page/site. I have 1Gb RAM, a 2.6Ghz CPU and so resources shouldnt be a problem. I have the latest driver installed. I disabled the Realtek via the Device Manager (but not BIOS?) Does anyone have any suggestions? I am fairly inexperienced with these things so please explain clearly if its complicated!! Many thanks in advance, Matt.
