Software workaround for SB Live?

    Many people have complained here and everywhere else for the
    static/craclking/stuttering problems with a SB Live. All the suggested
    workarounds are user-side workarounds, meaning they have to change
    their IRQ settings or something like that.

    My situation is different - I'm a game developer, currently having
    problems with one of our games and a SB Live. I'm interested in a
    program-side workaround, so that the user doesn't even notice the

    Do you know any of such workarounds? Is this the right forum to ask?

    Thanks in advance,

    I don't think many users live here with the level of expertise you require.
    :) It's above our heads. Anyway, if the solution requires adjusting PCI
    latency timer or such, there are no software workarounds. These options can
    only be fiddled with via the BIOS interface (at least in a safe way, since
    different chipsets work differently).

    You could ask Creative directly, surely they have a developer support
    program, or write the KX Project guys an email (they have the source code
    for their driver available too I believe, in case you want to reverse
    engineer it and maybe find a solution).
