I waited for 7 weeks to get those morons at gateway to fix my computer.
New memory, new motherboard, new soundcard, new cd burner unit.
So when it arrived I thought FINALLY I can play NWN again.
Only now everyone talks like this after I've playeed for a few minutes.

"H-h-h-h-h-h-h-h-hello there."

Same goes for music and I can barely use my mouse as it keeps hanging making it pretty much impossible to play.

Tried reinstalling. All the graphic gadgets are at lowest level or switched off. Used the no cd patch to cut out the cd player in the equation.
Doesn't help, it's still there.

If anyone has a serious suggestion, please please please let me know.
If this can't be solved I'm screwed.
And no smart remarks please, I'm pissed off enough as it is.

Hi Falkhor. I suggest checking for the most current version of sound drivers for your soundcard. Also look into your videocard driver version too.

Here are some links describing something like your problem and what they did:

my sound does that too, its because one of the recent patches made it so it doesnt save your sound settings, just go into options -> sound options -> and set it to directX emulation.

I still haven't figured out how to fix the mouse part of it (where the mouse just suddenly ignores you for a second or two) and I'm not having the framerate/video part of it, so I suppose it could be different problems.

And seriously Falk, if that fails you, find out what it would cost shipping wise and I will take my old CD ROM out of my old "in pieces" machine and ship it to you. I'm not using it, probably never will again ... course finding drivers for it may be a problem.

Sound card of good quality are cheap these days, and even cheaper at a used computer store, It might be best to replace it with a soundblaster card.

But I'm a computer repair tech, among many other things, send me a pm and I'll be happy to call you on the phone and walk you through any problems your having.
I realize this is a week old post, but ya need help I'm there.

Grok
