Thanks guys i'm gonna swap ram and if that doesn't work call creative and i'll post what they tell me. That volume thing didn't fix it either. Thanks to everyone for the help.

Hi Kelly,

Im from Brazil, sorry for bad english.

I saw your problem with Audigy2 and Snap Crackle only in 24 bit sound.

My configuration is similar yours.
My configuration: Asus A7N8X-e deluxe, SATA 80Gb.
I tried everithing and the only conclusion is that the problem is caused by SATA HD.
Using IDE HD, I dont have the problem.

So if you have a solution for this boring trick, please let me know: marcelo_linhares@hotmail.com

If I discover something to help I will warning you too.

I finally solved this terrible fault. March 2014, yest its taken that long but maybe a few of these boards on eBay can now be fixed.

The audigy 2 crackling problem is caused by 4 faulty capacitors. Hold the board with the chips facing you. input skts to the left, gold edge connectors at the bottom.

You can see 4 tiny capacitors at the bottom right hand corner. These are too small to smooth the small power supply chips. The ripple is what causes the interference. You can prove this by pointing a hairdryer at this corner for a few secs whilst in your computer. If the sound improves then these are the culprit.The heat changes the capacitance a tiny amount.

You can either replace them with 50volt 100 uf electrolytic caps by removing them or carefully solder the new caps to the solder points on the rear. Make sure that the negative stripe is pointing the same way as the originals. Then glue them to rear of board with a glue gun making sure that the legs are insulated from everything.

Does it work-YOU BET IT DOES.

Mike
