    So my computer crashes everytime I have my sound on. I tried looking for other drivers but I can't seem to find any. It's basically an onboard soundcard and if i disable the card, everything works fine. Whenever sound is on and I try to view media or play games, my computer just freezes or sometimes sound just goes scratchy then just freeze. Any suggestions? :wtc:

    maybe an IRQ conflict, or your codecs are fucked?

    When you say disable do you mean disabled in the device manager or physically disabled?

    fi you've already checked the audio and mobo chipset drivers:

    Usually most of the pci slots get mapped to the same shared interrupt lines as the onboard pci devices. Every motherboard has slightly different mappings, so check the docs as most boards come with a layout in their manuals. Determine which slot shares an INT line with your onboard sound and try removing it to see if your problem disappears. If so, play pci musical chairs with your other pci devices until you find a combo that works.

    Agreed, also try leaving it (audio card) out completly.

    by 'it' I meant removing the card in the slot which shares the INT lines with the onboard sound chip. sorry for any confusion.

    did you try removing the card from the specific shared slot? if not, just remove ALL the pci cards (except video oc), enable the onboard sound, and see if it works then.
