Sound, which had been perfect, now was unlistenable; scratchy, distorted, cutting in and out.
Someone told me that Creative drivers didn't play well with additional RAM so I experimented with returning to original 2 G; removing original and adding new 4 G; using all 6G of RAM.
The sound only worked properly with the original 2 G.
All Creative X-Fi sound card drivers are the latest.
Is there a fix for this? or will I be forced to keep RAM low?
