buying new sound card
any alternate solution
yeah, there is. Upgrade your sound card or be patient on what you have.
Well, SigmaTel Audio Codec is not so good as I have very bad hardware failure experience with it. My sound card stopped working within a months of usage and it was SigmaTel. Even RealTek Audio codec is better than SigmaTel.
1. reinstall the direct x version that you have, sometimes all the direct x registrations are not "right" when you install your software.
2. buy a second hand creative lab sci fi/soundblaster audigy 2 sound card, it will cost you 300 - 400 rs in the market,
It seems you have been using an obsolete sound card. You may not be able to fix the problem by installing new drivers/codecs. It is recommended that you must purchase external PCI sound card or use one of the USB headphones, they have built-in sound-card and sound quality is good.
Hope this helps.
