I keep getting that popping/scratchy sound in my audio. It is related to graphics. I have found some info on this but none of the tips have worked. I suppose it is related to the PCI buss and the graphics card. I have a PNY made AGP card. It is an Nivdia GeForce4 Ti 4200 with AGP8X. I have a dual boot system using WIN98se and XPpro. Both OS do this. It is really bad when watching "visualations" while lisening to music. Also can cause it by moving a window around on desktop. It also does it (pops) some during normal use.

This question was answered on April 21, 2004. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

To whom it may concern:

There are a few things you can try, first go to your Sound Cards vendor website and see if you can find newer drivers for your sound card that are already installed If you have the newest drivers already installed try downloading DirectX 9.0b from if you do not have it already If you do have it go to start, run and type dxdiag, once it loads up click on the Sound tab, in the sound tab there is a sound card acceleration level, if its full put it down one notch If its not full try putting it full If the problem persists you have to contact your sound cards vendor.
