windws 7 game/sound lag

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've seen several threads around the net about general laggy response in windows 7 for games. I've noticed for me its particular laggy with sound, i.e. an event happens and the sound seems to be a few tenths of a second later. Not much but noticeable in fast action games compared to windows xp.

I have a creative x-fi xtremegamer sound card in windows 7 64-bit ultimate. I've done various things like the network registry tweak, installed latest x-fi drivers but to no avail. This is about the closest description of the problem I've seen. http://www.sevenforums.com/gaming/31...ndows-7-a.html

Anyone have any other suggestions?

First of all Welcome to Overclock.net!

Now, Id suggest removing your sound card and trying to play using on-board sound, see if that fixes the problem. If it does then you might need a new sound card. =[ I run W7 64bit and use on-board audio because i dont have a sound card and its fine for me...
