ASUS G1 Sound distortion after installing new drivers

Hello!

Laptop: ASUS G1 with Nvidia Geforce Go7700, 512MB.

Sound is USB DAC (Silverstone Ensemble EB-01)

Using ancient graphics drivers (01/19/2007, 7.15.10.9802) found from ASUS web site, I have decent graphics performance with older games and sound works OK.

However, I'd occasionally want to play some newer games.

Installing newer graphics drivers from your site (for example, the ASUS released 179.14) cause audio distortion in both USB DAC and in on-board audio.

Audio distortion is pops and clicks, occasionally audio is completely cut out and replaced with noise. Strange enough, this usually affects only Windows audio, not in-game audio. Audio distortion is only heard when some Windows-source is playing: foobar, youtube, wmp... Scrolling down a web page, for example, causes these distortions.

The problem seems to appear with ANY other graphics driver than the ancient ASUS one.

Have any other ASUS G1 users had these problems?

i am using ASUS g1sn and never had that problem. try to reinstall your current nvidia driver with the latest one. and also update your realtek audio driver. where you also can get it from this site.

:) GOOD LUCK!

Yeah I got g2s with 8600m gt.Old driver works fine with old games

but newer drivers(180.48;181) have great improvement in benchs and new games.

something like yours happened when I try to play two program with sound but new audio driver(2.12) works fine.also my speakers can make more loud now:thumbsup:

Now this is weird. I Enabled AERO and the distortion seems to have gone away.

Gotta try more drivers.
