To start off, I run on Windows Xp and have Spybot Search and Destroy.

Putting it simply, the sounds on my programs cannot stack. I don't know whether its a simple priority problem or something, but on some applications such as Quicktime, and games such as WoW and iRO the sound has echoes and is laggy. I've asked on other forums before, and they say it could be a soundcard problem. Also when I go to Control Panel>Sounds, Speech and Audio Devices>Speaker Settings I get a window coming up saying DirectSound settings not availiable. I thought it could be a problem of having not enough memory, and I don't know -exactly- how to check this but on Task manager, its says my Physical memory availiable is around 272000, which im assuming is 272MB?

Right now im really guessing I need a new soundcard? :tazz:
