Sound hiccups after installing ASUS V9520 video card.

Every time my computer plays a sound, I encounter a brief, half-second freeze (like a hiccup). I started seeing this after installing a ASUS V9520 video card, the drivers for which didn't pass Windows Logo Testing. I went the website to get updated drivers; that didn't help. I removed the card and drivers; that didn't help. I also turned off the sound acceleration on the DirectX Diagnostic tool; that helped a little, but sometimes sounds don't play at all now.

Should I update my sound card (SIS 7012)?

My bet is this is not a PC Hardware issue, but a software/driver/settings issue. Maybe your DMA settinga are not working, maybe motherboard drivers were not installed.

But I can't tell you much more since your post didn't tell what OS and what make/model motherboard. So I leave you to look into those issues. Remember that a bug in the XP OS shows DMA to be set, but it isn't. Fix? Set to PIO and OK it, then go back and set to DMA. Simple.

Thank you for replying to my post, Bob.

I'm running Windows XP w/Service Pack 2 (I was having problems before installing service pack 2), and the motherboard is a ASUS P4S-LA.

I reselected DMA on the primary IDE Channel and set the secondary IDE Channel to DMA, but it didn't help.

Thanks again,
John

That's not what I noted and shold have no effect. Hope you find out how to try the method I noted. Some try setting it to PIO, back to DMA and then OK, but that doesn't do it. It's an odd dance by Microsoft, I didn't write the tune.

Try installing motherboard drivers and the sound drivers.
