  1. Okay, I've figured it out: It's Skype. As soon as I shut it down, the problem disappears. So the question becomes, kaelik: Do you have Skype installed and on aswell? And if so, if you shut it down, will the problems disappear? Scratch that. Back to the same this morning.
  2. No, didn't help either, and I've tried it for the second time now aswell. Gonna try and disable McAfee, see if that helps. EDIT: Hmm, that's both bad and weird .... it helped. So far anyway. But why then don't I experience this on my TVPC??? Same OS on it, same McAfee, but granted, alittle older equipment.
  3. There's no "Never" option, so I set it to "0" minutes. Will see if it works. and yes .... you should have. EDIT: Nope, still having problems. And I've changed other things there aswell as I experienced the lag.
  4. Now why on earth would it do that?? And in that case, which one would it be? I've got 5 (3 internal, 2 external).
  5. That's a valid suggestion I suppose, but it doesn't explain why the same is happening when I put the old nVidia card back in, which I'm pretty sure doesn't have a soundchip on it (or does it? I can't find anything that says it has: Gainward GTX275), and which didn't display this problem at all for years. No, the problem has to be somewhere else, something that changed a few months ago. It's either some kind of update that happened, or a defective part somewhere. The last thing I added, hardware-wise, is the G930 headset, and that was still a few months before this problem developed. I've already tried removing that one from the system and the same still happens.
  6. Yep. Yeah, but it didn't take effect until 4-5 months later, so that's odd too. And switching back to the Nvidia one didn't help much either. Yeah, I'll see if I can't yank it out this weekend and activate the mainboard sound. Will update as I go (more frequently this time).
  7. Everything, from scratch. Didn't help. Might be a hardware problem perhaps. Also tried to update BIOS and other software to the mainboard. I haven't tried to pull out the soundcard ... I kinda don't want to but.
  8. Okay, so yeah, re-installed everything on the computer .... still didn't help. In fact, it may have gotten worse (more frequently). Long reply time, I know. Kinda haven't had the time or will to do anything about this issue. Been lots of stuff to do personally and professionally in my life the past couple of months. Any other ideas to resolve this issue?
  9. I think I've figured out what was causing the trouble. One of the tabs on my Firefox was causing it. Every time it refreshed itself, the disturbances occured. Tried closing it down and so far so good. I've had a small suspesion it was causing it for alittle while. I know Firefox has added a function that lets it use the grafics card to power grafical content on webpages, but that was awhile ago. Still, I will try and do as you said this weekend, and see if it helps. It still shouldn't be this way. I've had that particular page up for a looooong time and it never caused any problems before. Thanks in advance. I will let you know how things go as soon as I've done what you suggested and given it a fair amount of testing time.
  10. Okay, I'm getting sick and tired of being shot in games because my computer randomly slows down to a crawl. Symptoms are as follows: - Grafix freezes up. - Sound crackles kinda, but not noise crackling, but the sound you hear at that moment. It could be in-game sound, or just plain music or video while not in-game. - I die for the umpteenth time!!!! Okay, not really a symptom. My system and accessories: Mainboard: MSI 890FXA-GD70, Socket-AM3 (BIOS default) CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition RAM: 2 x Kingston ValueR. DDR3 1333MHz 4GB, CL9 GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 2GB GDDR5 (software and drivers updated) Soundcard: Creative X-FI TITANIUM FATAL1TY champ (software and drivers updated) Headset: Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930 (software and drivers updated) OS: WIN 7 Home Premium 64-bit (fully updated) Now, this problem never occured before I switched from my old nVidia GPU to this Radeon one. I switched it out about 6-7 months ago, but the problems didn't manifest themself until a couple of months ago (tops). But, I thought I'd give it a go and switch back to the old one (Gainward GeForce GTX 275 896MB PhysX) just to check. De-installed everything Radeon, and installed the newest nVidia drivers and software. No go, still the same problem. Okay, so I started to think maybe there was a problem with the headset I had bought 5 months ago, so I tried de-installing that. Still the problem occured. Tried watching the list of processes running to see if I could spot something that was hogging the CPU. Had problems with Search & Destroy's Tea-Timer feature way back in the days on the old computer which resembled this problem, but alas I can't see anything out of the ordinary. So I'm kinda at a loss here what could be causing this. And short of installing Win 7 all over again, is there any tips you guys can give on this subject? If you require a soundfile example of what it sounds like then I'm sure I can provide.
  11. Yeeeahh .... it's gonna be great! Can't wait!!!
  12. I concur with Deft here. It won't be anything above the standard in the industry. I'm pretty sure of that.
  13. Yeah, still gonna play. Unfortunatly, we may be playing on one of the European servers come launch. I'm alittle unclear on the specifics, how many of our guildies in WoW who will be following me, Tebby, and Corzip over to ToR.


    I'm also not sure if we can join a US based server??


    In any event, I would have to talk to Tebby and Corzip about it first. They're the ones that have most info on this game. :)

  14. If you're still going to play SWTOR and need people to play with you can find most of the old DS crew over at crimsonnova.org We are pulling NOVA, END and ISF all into one guild. Should be a great time!
