I have a 1.6 AMD and a MSI mother board, with 1.5 gig of ram. I am having a random and a repeatable audio clipping or springy sound output when I use a PCI type sound card. I can use a USB sound device, but it has no sub output or line in/mic. I have tried a $12 generic card, two Creative cards, and my latest is by ASUS. I have no conflicts in the device manager ie(yellow ! symbols). I have stopped any unnecessary background programs. When it happens randomly during playback my CPU usage goes from 3% to 7% norm, to around 36%. I can get this problem to repeat every time I change the volume up or down. After I change the volume I get the clipping 5 seconds from the volume change. I also have a 120w power controller, I am not sure if I am getting close to maxing it out. But if I was would it blow the fuse on the power controller board, or just shut down my PC?
No announcement yet.
