Default Vista 64 sound issues

Just installed vista HP 64 bit and I seem to be having trouble with the sound in some games. Team Fortress 2 and EP:2 to be exact. All other games work fine. The problem is that the sound is scratchy and it skips. All my drivers are up to date and I have tried both X-FI and onboard sound same thing happens in both environments. If I boot into 32 bit the sound is fine in all games.No stuttering at all. Thanks in advance .

I have also redownloaded those two game and verified integrity of the files and defragmented them. I have also turned sound settings all the way down as well. Same thing.

source powered games use valve sound engine so openal, alchemy won't help.

just like Bob, don't have any issues. only thing i can recommend is re-checking those drivers.
Windows 8 the next big failure, right after Windows ME

I thought Source used DS3D. Hence the reason you can download HL2 (Source) profiles from the Alchemy developer website.
