Hi all,

I have a Dell Dimension 8200 equipped with an OEM version of the SoundBlaster 
Live Value card.  After upgrading the drivers to a version that does support 
the "what you hear" functionality, I now have a highly annoying crackling sound 
after any text is spoken by JAWS and possibly other situations as well.  
Applying a patch to disable "turbo mode" has reduced but not entirely 
eliminated this crackling.  Any pointers to drivers that actually fix both 
issues at the same time would be hugely appreciated.
