SoundMAX HD Audio problems

2009-02-08, 21:01 PM

Hello. I'm new here :)

 

I experience some problems with sound on my lenovo T61. I've got HD audio Soundmax.

Sometimes, when I listen to mp3 I hear some cracks (one crack from time to time - not often). Buffer length in foobar is set to 5000ms - so it's big enoght. How to explan it better: it's similar to listening to badly ripped song from audio cd. I've got drivers 5.10.1.5520 installed and the BIOS is in latest version too. All windows sp3 updates are installed. On AnalogDevices website I can't find any drivers to try. I use koss headphones & working on "maximum performance".

 

Please help.
Kuba

did the audio drop-outs start happening after you updated your system with the latest video drivers from lenovo?

 

this is a very common/serious problem, but evidently not serious enough for Lenovo to FIX it. (did you hear that Lenvo?!)

 

XP and Vista are both affected by this extremely annoying bug.  apparently the workaround is to downgrade to an older version of the Nvidia driver, prior to version 7.15.11.7693.  i uninstalled/removed the 'new' nvidia drivers, downgrading to the stock Windows VGA driver, then i re-ran Windows Update, which offered me an earlier version of the Nvidia driver, which behaves much better than version 7.15.11.7693.  i'm running Vista x64, but the same issue/workaround applies to 32 bit Vista and XP, afaik.

 

there are various other threads on this site discussing the issue... like this one
