1st thing this is the 1st time it is happening to me under Vista, XP doesn't had this problem with the same PC. (Athlon64X2, MCP61 chipset Nforce 6100)
I just installed Windows 7, and when I listen to music while surfing the sound sometimes slowed with sizzle as if it was vinyl (crack), not obvious but noticeable.
This was with the basic drivers provided by the OS (Realtek ALC888). So I updated to the latest manufacturer's.
I reinstalled everything, I thought I have messed up somewhere. A test I just reinstalled without anything and surf, I can surf it back little by little, in fact it is based on the traffic of the connection that it sizzles.
If I download something or streaming audio is not really clean.
Am I the only one who see such concern? What could be the cause?
