    i am running Windows Vista Business 32-bit and whenever i play World of Warcraft or Crysis my sound gets echoy and it stutters. Its really annoying and i can play, the video runs fine, its the sound that gets to me.:confused: And i have a Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 4

    I read a thread with the same problem as me, but the person had XP and he fixed the problem by going into device manager/ IDE ATA/ATAPI controller and unistalling the Primary IDE channel. Vista is a bit diffrent, it doesnt not have a Primary IDE channel under the IDE ATA/ATAPI controller folder.
