    That could be a issue as well, but I don't hear that cause issues much these days.

    Ahh well, then how did you get the ATI HDMI Sound driver installed? Maybe it is a default part of the actual driver only? Either way I would get the full installer for testing, that way you can try the install and choose custom to be sure it does not get reinstalled next time if you find out your X-FI is not the cause and you reinstall it and the ATI Drivers.

    Hmmm, I uninstalled the ATI drivers, ATI Tool Tray and then rebooted and reinstalled the CCC and drivers, except for the High Definition Audio driver. When I checked the device manager, the High Definition audio driver is still there! No option to uninstall the driver, so I removed the device and rebooted. The HD driver came back again! Don't know how I can remove the driver, it just seems embedded.

    I tested again with the HD driver disabled, and got hitching again.

    Well HD audio driver is Microsoft UAA Driver and not a part of the ATI Drivers at all. If that is which one you meant.

    Time to test with your sound card uninstalled and using onboard RealTek audio.

    Well I uninstalled the X-Fi drivers, pulled the card out and then enabled the onboard sound. Fired up Il-2 1946 and got hitching as usual. I then disabled the HD Audio from the video card so just the onbord sound is enabled, fired up the game and no difference.

    I just give up. Its the motherboard, it has to be. I have swapped out everything in this frigging poxy machine and its still hitching.

    Thanks for the help LSD, I'm going to admit defeat with this.

    Wait, I thought you got it to not glitch on you on the page before this?

    Right? What is wrong with running like that?

    When you did test with RealTek sound, did you use the new driver I linked you to at Realtek? If not please do, and do not use the ones at Gigabyte site or from the CD.

    Promote me to the top of the dumbass tree. The problem was the hard drive I was using to install my games to. Its a 500 gb Western Digital "Green Power" drive; either there is something wrong with the drive or there is some sort of shutdown going on with the damned thing while games are running, as part of its eco feature or something. I swapped all my data over to another "normal" 500gb drive and the hitching/pausing has gone.... hopefully permanently.

    I guess I should have checked the hard drive before anything else, but I didn't think a drive could cause this sort of problem. Thanks for all the help.

    Ahh! Another user just a few days ago was having issues with the same exact drive, he was putting his page file on it and it was stuttering in games. Maybe this was you? I don't think so though, but ya we found it to be those drives as well.

    Glad to see you found the issue, send that drive back and warn anyone else you see mentioning it!
