    Hi, I'm currently having a problem i cant seem to figure out the cause. I've been using my onboard Realtec HD Sound on my Gigabyte GA-MA790X-DS4 790X board for a while & then over passed 2 weeks i've noticed sound pops & crackling whenever i listen to music or watch movies & even when my windows loads up it crackles.

    What ive done so far...

    Uninstalled & reinstalled drivers
    Uninstalled & installed older drivers
    Uninstalled & installed Microsoft's default drivers
    Checked Speakers & headphones & both work fine on my other system.
    Uninstalled all codecs & reinstalled codecs.
    Downloaded Different media players & tested.

    Ive purchased a Speedlink Stage 7.1 PCI sound card to fix the problem & after installing drivers i still have the same damn problem.

    I'm currently using windows 7 64bit on a desktop since its official release & only had this problem for 2-3 weeks now.

    I'm suffering here guys, my sound is needed for audio editing & video editing so please can someone suggest some possible fix's.

    thanks

    Hey. Please install the latest driver from here if this is what you're not currently using:

    Realtek

    Many times, this issue is caused by cpu throttling which is set in the bios. Try finding out which setting(s) affect this and disable as a test. Sometimes software that loads with Windows is responsible for the throttling. In this case, disable this software as a test.

    If you have Easytune software installed from Gigabyte, or other unnecessary utilities from them, uninstall.
