Audio problems causing issues in game

#1Ramsus32Posted 1/6/2014 11:10:27 PM(edited)
I'm having quite a strange issue. While I'm playing any game, I'll will lose FPS but my sound will also stop working until the game fixes itself. Now it doesn't sound bad at first but that, tied into the fact that if I touch my audio jack while my headset is plugged in will cause it to sound staticy, I'm trying to figure out what's wrong. I'm pretty sure it's my audio jack since I tried my headset in another computer and had no issues. I just find it strange that an audio issue will be causing me to drop frames in game. My audio is perfectly fine while browsing the internet or on YouTube but as soon as I go into any game I will start having issues.

Also, I can cause the freezing by just touching my audio jack a bit and it will freeze the game for a few seconds.

Onboard audio or soundcard?

Let me also add that sometimes it will say my mic is plugged in when it's not and unplugged when it's in, so it's not just the audio that is the problem. I think it might be the whole backside panel.

Try updating your onboard audio drivers. It could be that the port's gotten loose. Happens if you switch jacks often.

Did, still have the problem, also I don't unplug my headset from the back at all.

If this is the case (which I think it is), will it cause a bigger issue and is there any way to fix it?

Well motherboard audio does take a bit of power. Especially if your playing a game that maxes out your system if you disable the audio completely, youll probably see a bit of a frame rate increase.

You should probably see if there is a audio driver update for your motherboard.

I would try an audio driver update first, that's cheapest and easiest thing to check.

My only other thought besides a new motherboard, would be to buy a sound card and disable mother board sound?

Audio driver didn't work. I'm planning on building a new computer in a few months anyway, so I think I'll just suffer with this issue instead of buying a sound card.
