I think SC2 is killing my audio.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm running on my sig rig:
Q9550 on an Asus Rampage Formula x48 with 8gigs of ram and the stock audio that comes with the Formula, Supreme FX II. I got the drivers from the Asus site. Running Win 7 64bit.

Occasionally while playing SC2 my sound will go out. It will stay out for a few seconds to a few minutes and sometimes an hour or more. It's completely random. But the longer I play the longer it tends to stay out. And sometimes after I quit playing it will do it while listening to music and surf the web. Only thing that tends to fix it is a reboot. I was starting to think it may be the sound card but it doesn't do this under Ubuntu 11.04. I'm am running a pretty fresh install of windows (1-2 old) and haven't installed more than a few drivers, graphics, audio, LAN.

Any help would be nice.

No on board audio.

New development. The audio drivers I installed auto detect input devices and now it keeps popping up saying that it has found new hardware. It tells me I have plugged my speakers into the wrong port. They are basic 2+1 speakers with sub that use a standard green 3.5mm head phone jack. I have them plugged into the green port and it tell me I have them in the wrong one but I don't which other port to pt them in.

have you tried disabling the card from BIOS and re enable it if not try to reinstall the card and maybe clean the pins (im not joking)

and about the speakers some cards uses stupid way to identify the jacks that they all can do the same outputs so try going into audio settings and see it there (`iv had the same issue with my ALC889)

EDIT:does this happen in SC2 only???

I will give the bios and cleaning/reinstall a shot. Well I only noticed the issue happening in SC2. But now I'm starting to notice it elsewhere. I listen to music via Pandora and sometime it will cut out too. So I'm really starting to think it is a system wide issue with drivers or possibly the audio card or my speakers. I may give usimg my head phones a shot to see if it keeps telling my I have them plugged in the wrong spot.

The pins didn't look dirty nor did the PCIE slot. Disable in the bios did what it said it would. I didn't have audio in Windows and drivers failed to load. So I re enabled it and now I have sound. I haven't tried using a different PCI slot yet though.

I did notice that the drivers on Asus's website are beta drivers but haven't been updated since 2009/09/10 so that could be an issue. Know where I can find non beta drivers? I'm going to try googling some and try giving SC2 a try again.
