  1. I just bought a Sound Blaster Audigy 2 Value and ive been having problems with Halo on the Pc. When i turn on Hardware Accelaration the sound is better than software but when its on i shoot a weapon and the sounds cuts on and off. Its annoying. So when the videos play i can hear talking sometimes and sometimes not. So whats could be wrong. Any Suggestions. Here are my System Specs: (just built)
    MOBO: Forgot brand it think its MSI or ASUS but dont want to look for it.
    CPU:AMD Athlon 64 3500+
    Mem:1024MB of DDR-RAM
    Graphics: Sapphire Radeon X800 Pro 256MB
    HD:2xWD Raptor 74GB in RAID0
    Sound: Sound Blaster Audigy 2 Value (when for this one because i ran out of money on other components.)
    PS:430W Antec

    The first thing I would do is install the latest driver. Maybe you did this already but you didn't mention it. If you did and it isn't working, maybe an older driver might work.

    Yeah i tried everything installed latest driver went back to the old driver. It still kept coming in and out. And its only in that game.

    Is your Halo game patched?

    Aaaah.....That may be the problem!

    You gotta look at both parties:
    Is it the Soundblaster?
    Or Halo?

    Yeah, seems likely, especially since you said the problem only happens with that game. I think the 1.05 patch would be the one to try since the 1.06 and 1.07 seem to be for servers.
