Very confused about sound on Gigabyte GA-M57SLI-S4

I have a Gigabyte GA-M57SLI-S4 and can't get sound working properly. Sometimes (depending on driver used) it works perfect for about an hour or so, then it starts to double the sound + echos and crashs the application in use.

Other drivers have noise when audio playback starts, some send noises via microphone when I use TS.


I tried many drivers but none of them where working. For me it is dificult to chose the right driver. Is there anyone who can help me.


- board is described on Gigabytes homepage with ALC 883 sound


- in users manual it is ALC 888


- when I google the ID 0x1458A002 it is identified as sometimes ALC 889a and sometimes ALC 885.



My System:

Kalyway 10.5.2 updated to 10.5.5 via Zephyroths updater (10.5.2 > 10.5.3 > 10.5.4 > 10.5.5)
