Dang I hate creative. (driver problem)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I can't get my sound to work properly in games. This happens in TF2 and BF2142, the only games I have played. My computer used to be running great, everything was all happy, until I installed an updated chipset driver that was posted in the news section. Well it totaled my computer, I had to reinstall windows. And since I have reinstalled windows nothing has worked the same. I have tried the drivers that came with my sound card, beta drivers, I don't know what to do. But what happens is, I get some weird sounds in 2142, and then after a while, the game will lock up and I get some more weird sounds. While in TF2 everything is fine for like 5 mins, and then it freezes up and I get some weird sounds. What should I do? what are some good drivers I could use for my card?

It could be possible that the card is malfunctioning of some sort. What sounds do you get in BF2142?

My only problem is sometime the sound gets funked up, then I have to turn the sound up and down real fast to get it back to normal.
Try cleaning the driver out then reinstalling it.
Or a rollback before the chipset driver install.

It's kinda a hard sound to describe. It's almost like a beep beep kinda thing, it's weird. I sure hope it isn't going bad .

@Pooping^fish- I formatted my computer after I messed it up with that driver .

Ok, problem fixed, well sorta. I found a non beta driver on the creative site. I driver cleaner'd it and installed the one I found on the internet. Now it works good, except my rig still reboots on me . But I can figure that out by myself I hope. hahahahah
