gothmog2 Posted December 28, 2013 Share Posted December 28, 2013 Got a pair of these for Christmas. Installed the driver software from the Corsair website (2.0.17). immense amount of problems with system hanging / freezing whenever should play a sound. Couldn't get it working at first until I disabled every other sound device (Philips camera mike, onboard sound) in the system; even then if I leave the dongle in when I power up the system it crashes / hangs immediately I play any sound. If I place the dongle in an USB slot after powering up and logging into windows, there's a half-decent chance it'll work ok ... although crashes/hangs can still occur unpredictably. once the system has hung, only solution is to reboot. no connection problems between the dongle and the headset: I think this is a dongle driver issue. If a crash occurs, can't access corsair headset software or even sound submenu in control panel - both of these programs use sound and they hang/ crash. Can see a few similar threads on this forum, nothing identical and no solutions. I'm going to have to conclude the drivers are buggy / conflict with my system and RMA the headset at this rate ... which would be a shame: when it works the sound is excellent.
