    Default Audio Driver issues

    I just recently built a computer around a Gigabyte EP45-UD3R motherboard. Everything's been working nicely, but I'm having audio problems. Whenever I listen to music or watch a movie, the sound tends to pop at random places. I've installed the latest audio drivers for the motherboard that supposedly work with Windows 7, but I'm still having issues. Any help on the subject would be greatly appreciated!

    Interesting!
    What kind of speakers are you using? Have you had this issue with headphones? Do you have any other speakers you could try? It could be that Windows 7 driver. You may want to wait for the Windows 7 updates to see for sure? Have you tried it with any other Windows OS? I hope it don't damage anything while you get it resolved. Please keep us posted.

    First off, yes it also happens when I'm using headphones. I did some further research and it seems like it's a windows vista/7 problem with Realtek HD audio. Problem is the only suggestions people have made are to uninstall the audio drivers and reinstall them. I already did this before I learned about the Windows 7 problem so I'm still at a loss for fixes.

    On Realteks website they state that you should only use the drivers from the manufacturer website. The realteks drivers may not work properly on your system due to gigabytes customization.
    Also disconnect any connections to the front audio header and use only connections from back panel for now. Test audio operation and report back your results. Yes it may very well be the driver for win 7 as well.
    Hope that helps a bit

    Windows 7 has a power setting in it. Click Start Search Power Options if it is on balanced click change plan settings navigate to show additional plans or to Advanced settings change it from balanced settings to High performance settings. This should reduce any cpu lagg or delay & eliminate the possability of it beeing the power setting. Let me know how that goes.

    I installed the default audio drive from the CD that came with my motherboard, which was Realtek HD audio. I also tried a usb audio driver and still suffered the same problems.

    Windows 7 has a power setting in it. Click Start Search Power Options if it is on balanced click change plan settings navigate to show additional plans or to Advanced settings change it from balanced settings to High performance settings. This should reduce any cpu lagg or delay & eliminate the possability of it beeing the power setting.
    Just tried this. Played a few videos and some music, and I don't seem to be getting the problem anymore. I'll keep testing files just to make sure, but I think this probably fixed the problem. Thanks!
