    I am running Windows XP on an RS480M2 MSI motherboard and I am
    experiencing problems with the sound (chopping). There is not really
    any pattern of when this happens, but I am experiencing the same
    whether I am using the onboard sound card or an external USB Creative
    sound card.

    The chopping increases if I am downloading from the internet or if I am
    doing file operations.

    I am not sure whether this is a Windows problem or if it is
    driver/hardware related. But since I find the driver support for this
    motherboard pretty bad I would not be surprised if that it the case.

    Has anyone experienced the same problem?

    I think I solved the problem. There was a hardware conflict on the PCI
    bus - probably related to the IRQ. I enabled a feature that resets the
    configuration on the PCI bus. This solved the problem for my new Sound
    Blaster Extigy PCI sound card. I don't know if this also has solved the
    problems for the onboard sound and USB, but I think so.
