    Audio popping, and Microphone doesn't work with headset.

    Hello all. I just built a new PC and am using Win10 for the first time, coming from Win7 on previous PC.

    I have a Sades SA-903 headset, and on my previous PC, I would just plug it to a USB port and it would install a Generic 7.1CH Gaming Headset driver, and work just like that, no audio/mic issues whatsoever.
    Now, on this PC, I did the exact same thing, it installs the same Generic 7.1CH driver (maybe a more up to date one?) and now my audio pops, and for some reason, my mic stopped working, even though it actually was working before.
    I have confirmed that it is the headset driver itself with the issue, since my speakers are working fine with the Realtek driver. I have tried to get hold of Sades drivers, but none of them worked, and I can't try my own driver install disc since I don't have a disc drive. Is there perhaps a way to get a previous Generic 7.1CH driver somewhere and try that? Is there anything else I can possibly do to fix this?

    A quick search suggests there may be a problem trying to use that with Win 10.

    The advice by the MVP at the end is sound.

    Thanks for a reply. I have seen that thread, and some others regarding this headset, but there is no absolute answer. This is why I am asking about the Generic 7.1CH driver instead, since that's what Windows uses by default, and I am fine with it, prefer it even, as I did try the SA-903 driver itself back on Win7, and it introduced problems, so I ended up sticking with the Generic driver instead. Is there some previous version of the Generic 7.1CH Gaming Headset driver somewhere I can access?

    Audio popping and stutter may well be due to driver latency.

    Sorry I've no idea about your particular driver.
