Just want to say that my problem is not something that has recently started happening, this has been a round for as long as I can remember.

While playing my headset (Razer Megalodon) makes static noises that seem to increase with more GPU load (I run 2 HD4890 cards, not in Crossfire). This static noise goes on for a while, until the sound just stops working(complete silence).
The more clients I run the more noise. I also have some speakers connected to the computer, and have no problem playing sound trough them while playing Eve. Tho the headset is USB and the speakers are not.

Anyone know how I can fix this problem? I have updated drivers for about everything, also re-installing the OS (Win7 64-bit) is not helping.

I have this problem through my 5.1 surround sound system on the PC. I log into Eve and it starts to crackle and scratch. I have to turn off the sound system for about 30 seconds and then turn it on again and then it seems to be fine.

Only happens in Eve. Other games are ok.

Ah other way around for me then, the seround works ok here.
After I turn the sound system off for a while, the problem still continues when I turn it on again.
I have experienced the same thing in other games, but not nearly as much or nearly as annoying as with Eve. I cannot use my headset at all while playing Eve.

Anything happening?

It's been a problem since Dominion. I am stuck with 7 year old drivers because the last version of drivers for the SoundBlaster Audigy 2ZS don't work with any of the apps that let you control the card...and specifically state that in the basically I can have a card with updated drivers and no way to control/configure the sound on my computer, or I just have to deal with the sound cutting out after an hour or so being online. Enabling/disabling the sound in game just freezes the client :(
