First of all, forgive me if this is the wrong forum to post this, I didn't find any driver specific forums. My problem is the following: I have just installed the new Aliens Vs Predator game, and found that the sound during cutscenes and intros gets very stuttery. From past experience I guess this is due to outdated audio drivers, but searching the internet for a newer version didn't help. As stated in the title my sound card is the Realtek AC97 Audio, with the driver name being ALCXWDM.sys. DxDiag shows the version as being 5.10.0000.6300 (English), and I can't seem to find any more recent versions out there (this one being from 24/09/2008). I heard the motherboard might be a factor in this, so just for good measure, it's an A8N-SLI Deluxe. Can anybody know if there's a more recent version of this driver out there? And if so, where can i get it from? Also, I heard there's a setting in windows' sound that allows you to change the frequency of the sound. It seems switching it from 96khz to 48khz might help, although I have looked around in the audio properties and settings and found no such settings. My OS is Windows XP. Any help on any of the above is greatly appreciated.
