I recently upgraded my system, with a new motherboard/cpu/vga and a new OS.<br><br>
I am using the same soundcard i was before (Creative SoundBlaster Live 24Bit 7.1, PCI card)<br><br>
Every time I load up a game (CS:S, Black&White2) the sound plays in 'slow motion', really poppy and glitchy. It slows my whole system down, and is really annoying. It also glitches when I test DirectSound via dxdiag. Otherwise it seems to work fine for most things.<br><br>
I have tried updating and re-installed DirectX several times, along with re-installing Soundcard drivers both from the Creative Website, and from the Instalation CD.<br><br>
Operating system is Windows XP Media Center.<br><br>
Thanks for reading.

If you have your cpu OCed and don't have pci lock on, that could be it from what I've heard before. (Don't have that option on my board, limits me severly)

With a new OS I assume you reformated, have you installed latest drivers for it? And idk if this would help but does disabling the onboard sound card do the trick?

Onboards disabled through the Bios. The creative website does not have any drivers for Media Center, so I used the WIndows XP ones.<br><br>
There is no OS selection from the CD either..<br><br><br>
All motherboard components are installed and working properly (except sound..)

Heard Media Center has had driver problems. OS you used before was XP I assume, and worked correct? <br />
<br />
Sorry that I can't be much more help.

Yep. XP Pro had no problem with the sound. The microphone channel went screwy but thats because I bought a 20 dollar 7.1 card.

Is there a x64 Media Center? Or was there a typo on the website and it's actually a x64 pro driver? Did it say it wasn't digitaly signed also?

Go to device manager and click 'update' on your sound card. When it asks you, select 'search in specified folder' and pick the folder in which you downloaded that beta driver. See if that works maybe.
