Default Fix for Audigy 2 Platinum/distortion and static - 08-26-2004, 16:00 | posts: 186 | Location: New York

I had put up a post before about this problem.
http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread....hreadid=103228

dropped a creative labs tech an email about it and his response help fixed my porblem. in case anyone has this issue in the future, check out what he said.

With regards to your issue, I would like you to do a fresh installation
again for the card.
Remove all Creative related programs from the system in the 'Safe' mode
(Do it with caution):
1) go to window explorer->c:\program files\, and remove Creative
contents.
2) run-> type 'regedit'
3) when in the 'registry editor', click on the 'hkey_local_machine'
folder.
4) click on the 'software' folder.
5) remove 'Creative' folder.
6) exit program and do a reboot of computer.

Once all Creative related contents have been removed, reboot again and
go to main menu (F5) and select 'Normal' mode. After which do a full
installation for the card.

Make sure
- That the card is seated properly in the PCI slot.
- That the on-board sound on your motherboard is disabled through the
BIOS.
- That your motherboard BIOS is up-to-date.
- That the operating system is up-to-date with the latest service packs
and patches.
- That there are no background applications open when you attempt the
installation.
- That the anti-virus program is disabled.


As for the distortion on sounds, here is a guide to assist you.
