Windows XP Tips
Crackling Sound With Soundblaster Cards
Posted By: Byron Hinson

This seems like a strange problem with Windows XP. Some users are noticing scratchy, popping sound with their SoundBlaster cards and Windows XP. I have come to the conclusion that this is happening the most often on PC's that contain RAID setups such as a Highpoint controller. The main fix I have come across is to install Raid drivers OTHER than those that shipped with Windows XP. For instance on my Raid setup, I went back to a older Windows 2000 driver and this has almost completely stopped my sound problems.
