Hi all, ,will try to be brief and factual..! The Motherboard is Foxconn 945G7MD series,socket 775 Processor INtel Pentium dual CPU E2180 2GB,Memory(RAM) 4gb(3.24gb usable) System 64bit.. Two hard drives ,one with 2 x Windows XP (Pro) and the other 1TB with Windows 7 'Ulimate' installed.. Problem, Audio on the Win XP drives is fine and uses, Reaktek drivers. but on Win 7, device manager shows .High definition audio (S/PDIF ) device, and "this device is working properly". All I hear is a sharp cracking noise when switching on or off ! .. Can I change the S/PDIF device to Realtek with appropriate drivers . I seem to have tried almost everything else.. ! Glad for any help . Many thanks
