Very odd problem... I have two sound devices
- Built in Sound adapter on Asus P5Q mainboard
- Creative Sound Blaster Xi-Fi Xtreme Audio on PCI-E
Default output device is number 2. Sometimes, when watching youtube or playing games or anything related to sound output, the sound output is switching from #2 to #1 and then back. During that time PC experiencing slowdowns, some freezing. It appears that the switching is happening on high peaks of sound.
The latest drivers are installed for both. The other way switching(from #1 to #2, if I set default to #1) never happens.
I'm pulling hair out slowly...
