N68C-GS FX Sound Driver Issue corrected (was crashing)
Hi, it seems so far that I've fixed the problem I've been having since recently installing this motherboard.
OS: Windows XP Pro 32/64-bit (yes I had the crashes on both of those OS's) I am currently on teh 64-bit.
Maybe this is premature but I just played a session of Diablo III and had no crash, after about 30 minutes of playing with Sound Channels on 128 (which caused faster crashing previously, as opposed to 64/32, etc # of sound channels).
Re: N68C-GS FX Sound Driver Issue corrected (still crashing)
Still having crashes.
I have now installed the latest drivers right from the VIA website for the audio chipset of my motherboard listed in the manual.
I have also now installed the mobo chipset nForce drivers straight from the NVIDIA website, instead of the drivers the ASRock website.
GeForce 7025 / nForce 630a chipset
Sound devices in question are installed as follows:
ATI Function Driver For High Definition Audio - ATI AA01
VIA High Definition Audio
The crashing is happening much less often now, but seemed mostly limited to when I'm playing Diablo III, and when I am watching youtube videos.
But it also happens any other place.
I saw someone suggest going into Services and making sure Windows Audio is on and started. I thought that seemed kinda silly, it should obviously be on, but I checked and it was set to Automatic, yet was stopped. I started it, and then my audio device was listed in Windows Sound. However, I've had to start multiple times the Windows Audio service, which as far as I am aware, should be on by default, and should not be turning off.
