    I have a dell xps 420 and it HAD vista home premium 32-bit, but I upgraded to the 64-bit version of home premium and that's when the problems started occurring. At least once a day my sound randomly does a very loud screeching sound and afterwards my sound doesn't work for a few minutes. I have X-Fi Xtreme Gamer sound card and I was pretty sure it was compatible with 64-bit, but now I'm worrying. I've already tried to uninstall and reinstall the driver in device manager. Is it possible I have to turn off my computer and unhook and rehook the sound card so it reads it properly or something?

    Okay, I downloaded everything on that link, but all it did was lessen the loudness of the crackly sound when it goes crazy. At least it doesn't give me a heart attack any more, but the problem still exists. It seems like it most frequently occurs when I'm on ventrilo. I'm not 100% sure about this, but i think it also messed up a few times on full tilt poker (when I wasn't on ventrilo or don't recall being on ventrilo). Also, I just noticed on that same page that it says that "Windows Vista is currently not supported." so I might be SOL until it is =\.
