Greetings. I've been fighting this problem for last 3 days and gave up.
You may have had an experience with it before so I am giving a shot to
I have Vista Ultimate x86 working on
'Intel E8400 Core 2 Duo 3.0'
'OCZ DDR2 PC2-6400 / 800MHz / Titanium XTC'
'Gigabyte HD3870 GV-RX387512H-B'
'Western Digital 500AAKS'
) x2, 1 TB
'Thermaltake Toughpower 600W'
Sound Blaster Audigy SE
Vista score: 5.6 (HDD at 5.6, the rest is rated with 5.9)
All was working more than great for last 2 weeks (that is when I built
and installed it), but last 2 days I've experienced a strange problem.
At completely random times my mouse stops responding (Logitech MX500),
the sound gets bad and overall performance drops a bit. After restart
eveything works fine. Also, I noticed that if I unplug and plug the
mouse back into USB port it starts working fine again, but the sound
I tried opening an MP3 file and that hangs WinAmp completely. I managed
to open it in BS Player and it sounded "laggy".
I am a computer admin by profession so I am not an amateur
all the logs for possible errors, checked Task Manager for running
processes and applications. File Indexing is turned off on all disks, I
am not using ReadyBoost, HDDs are using UDMA. Everything is fine! CPU
working normally, RAM ok, HDDs inactive...
Any known issue that I am not familiar with? Something with sound?
