choppy sound in games
one of my friends from work was working on my pc to try to get half-life 2 to run a little smoother, he thinks it's the sound reading from the hard drive because every time a sound plays or changes, the game lags, he didn't fix it but made it a little better...Anyways, since he did that the sound has been choppy for some of my games, I asked him why and said he installed a older IDE driver or something, so I installed the latest one. Still choppy. The sound is choppy in Flatout, Star Wars KOTORII, HL2, and some of counter-strike. I've tried installing latest sound driver, latest agp chipset driver, turning down sound performance, and changing the latency of the sound. I'm out of ideas, Anybody?
