Ill bet you have onboard sound card. I had similar problems with my similarusing cfs2 on AMD Athelon processor on an Assus with 128mb ram board, with GE
force 2 video card, the system hangs up, usually when fires are shot.
do you know why and how to fix?
system until I turned down hardware acceleration.
I know have a Sound Blaster Live 5.1 board and dont have any stuttering
Even the best system will hang with an on-board sound card in CFS2.
