Hi pls help, ive had this problem for quite a while and need some help.

Whenever I run games on my PC the sound is always stuttering and echoing itself in the background making it near on impossible to understand any in game speech.

I have tried changing my speakers, Downloading new drivers, even bought a new soundcard to try and fix this but to no avail. All windows sounds and any music I play works fine, it just seems to be when playing games. I dont have any conflicts in Device Manager, and the card says its working properly?!?!

Please HELP!!!

Many Thanks

Rob

HI
whats the make and model of your pc or sound card so we can check on what drivers you need the new ones may not work right on a older sound card.
