Hey all, Got a wee bit of a problem.
Just got a new soundcard a terra tec dmx 6fire
Now i installed the SC fine, But it continues to skip and crackle with
Now i know this is to do with XP assinging an IRQ for it and sharing
IRQ's, For some reason, My mobo/SC just dont go together with irq
sharing, (it happend with my last SC)
I have moved it to different PCI slots, in some its only crackles once
or twice, whilst in other PCI slots it will crackle repeatadly,
Now as far as multimedia goes, this Sound card works fine, on
everything except fruityloops, (and no its not fruityloops, I have
tested this fact)
Basically... Any ideas????
I have set manual IRQ setting in the bios for the PCI slot the SC is
in, But nope, cause XP assigns them whatever.
I have Disabled every other device I dont need freeing up IRQ's still
nothing. (there is now about 4 FREE IRQ's the soundcard could have but
it wont use em)
I have fresh installed XP, and selected 'standard pc' For installion
To disable ACPI )as this disables Automatic IRQ routing, And the use
of 'virutal IRQ's,
But as my system is a new one, I find that disabling ACPI has a sevre
effect on my system performance.
Also searched the registery Like a bastard but doesnt seem to be
anyway to 'hack' this setting.
Latest drivers on everything.
Im tearing my hair out.
Can anyone give me any ideas, My music is very important to me.
And I have tried everything.
Many many thanks
