Two problems:1) Audio2) Freezing when running AMD Overdrive
I have the habbit of whipping clean my HHD and re-format/re-install system and programs every year for the las five with the newest manufacturer's page downloaded drivers. Two problems: 1) Audio & 2) Freezing when running AMD Overdrive - Original setup:Gigabyte GA-K8N51GMF Athlon 64 3200+ Radeon x1300 512 1GB of dual channer ram 300x2 SATA, RAID 0(HalfLife2/FEAR; audio editing, video editing) Realtek's software has a built in eq, not very good but sometimes helped. - New setup:Gigabyte GA-K8N51GMF Athlon 64x2 4200+ Radeon x1300 512 1GB of dual channer ram 300x2 SATA, RAID 0 (HalfLife2/FEAR; audio editing, video editing)Audio is HORRIBLE, phone-line quality. Realtek's built in eq only makes sound worse. AMDOverdrive freezes the system when ran. Advice please?

The most likely problem is a Virus, or program incompatibility. Run a good virus checker (such as MalwareBytes) . But also look at the system cooling(unlikely) check the CPU fan and the case fan if you have one. If you don't have a case fan you should get at least one. The FX6000 series can run quite hot. You don't say what program you are running when it freezes, If you are gaming you should run as many fans as you are able to fit. You don't say what Graphics you are running, games are very processor intensive and so the CPU will generate more heat. By fitting a good GPU you will reduce workload on the CPU and so cut the heat generated.

You will want to run this free program as soon as you download it. It will remove any viruses on your computer. This is a great tool to use about once a month to make sure your computer is clean. Do a full scan and wait for it to complete. If you have completed the steps above and still have the problem, you will need more RAM. RAM is temporary memory that your computer uses when it is on. If you have very low RAM, then you will have a very slow computer.
Registry is accessed by almostall the installed programs and your operating system itself. Why is computerslow and freezing has to do with the fragmented registry data. You have todownload a PC Optimizer software that includes Registry Defragmenter tool suchas Reginout to perform system maintenance tasks.
Too Many Programs areInstalled
Installing too many programs makeyour computer slow and freezing. You have to uninstall the unwanted programs.
1. Click Start ' Control Panel. 2. Click Programs ' Uninstall a Program. 3. Select a program to remove. 4. Click Uninstall button. 5. Follow the wizard. 6. Reboot the computer after completion.
Sometimes computer runs slow andstarts freezing due to an insufficient RAM. You have to install additional RAMsif required.
Lack of Proper Configurations
You will feel that your computeris slow and freezing if you haven't set Windows for best performance.
1. Right click My Computer. 2. Select Properties. 3. Click Advanced System Settings. 4. Click Advanced tab. 5. Click Settings button under Performance frame. 6. Select the option Adjust for best performance. 7. Click Apply ' OK ' OK.
Junk Registry Keys
Storing junk entries in theregistry makes your computer slow and freezing. You have to delete such junkentries using a Registry Cleaner and PC Optimizer software.
Run your antivirus program. There may be something slowing your computer that you can remove. It is a good idea to run your antivirus program every week. Step 2
Remove spyware. Run a good spyware tool at least twice a month. Step 3
Use a pop-up blocker, if you have one. Check your antivirus program.
Dispose of the Extras
Delete your document files for anything you no longer need. Saved pictures, audio and video files in particular can slow your computer.
Remove unwanted programs from the Control Panel area. Old toolbars or games the kids downloaded off the Internet are a good place to start. Look for software you no longer use, such as the old printer you threw out last year.
Clean out your email. Old messages are a constant drain on your computer's resources. Go through every folder, deleting everything you do not need. Leave no mail! Finish by emptying the Deleted Items folder.
Turn off unnecessary programs. Check your taskbar for icons that show running programs. Disable anything you are not currently using.
Run the Disk Cleanup tool located in your Control Panel. (Windows only. For other operating systems, please check the Resources section below.) This will remove temporary files, cookies and unnecessary components to speed up your computer.
Defragment your computer. Defragging takes some time, but will speed your computer significantly. You can find the tool in your Control Panel. Run it monthly.
Check for disk errors. Sometimes corrupted files slow down your computer. To find and fix these files, Go to My Computer and right-click on C drive. Choose Properties, then Tools.
You may want to look into upgrading your RAM if there is less than 2GB installed. This is a recommendation that I have found in working with several PC's running this Operating System. Also, you would want to run disk clean up and remove any temporary files that Windows finds. Deleting any other temporary or unused files from your PC on a regular basis should increase system performance. In addition, if these steps do not solve your problem, you may want to consider upgrading to a faster performance hard drive (preferably a SATA II with a 32MB cache). As a last resort, you may look at your CPU to see if there is an upgrade for it, as well. Keep in mind that Vista is a resource hog and can slow down a PC within just a short period of time.
