It was working great until I fixed it. Audigy Gamer, hooked to Cambridge Soundworks 6 spkr sys. they are excellent btw.
Sys msi mobo 6380 k7t266 Pro2, ami bios 1.45, amd 1700+, XP home os, 40 gb hd, 1.0 gb ram,
had been working fine after very trying reinstall, just noticed snap...crackle, distortion out of spkrs, seems like it started right after i downloaded ms directx updates, did a sys restore but problem still there, i've tripled checked all of the settings, installed all current creative drivers, all comments appreciated
