If it's not one thing, it's another... I'm having a bad week with audio it seems. On my main PC, I upgraded to Windows 7 a couple of weeks back. Now, skype is failling, ventrilo is failing. After doing a little research, ventrilo FAQ's confirmed what i suspected: There is something seriously wrong with your sound card drivers or sound mixer configuration. ... Here is what I have as far as audio / mobo MOTHERBOARD: Asus P6T SE Intel X58 Chipset CrossFireX Mainboard Triple-Channel DDR3/1600 SATA RAID w/ eSATA,GbLAN,USB2.0,IEEE1394a,&7.1Audio (TechSpot reviewed it highly and I went for it!) I did find this for drivers... http://members.driverguide.com/driver/detail.php?driverid=419317&action=winfo but I'm not familiar with this site, and as I mentioned in another thread, I'm not very well versed in Mobo/Sound card driver updating, etc. Can one of you kind techspot folks point me in the right direction?
