If your device driver for the sound card says it is working properly, I'll bet you have the wrong driver. This definitely sounds like a driver problem. Look on the card manufacturers page and make sure you have the right one.

I agree that it is a driver problem, but try a general web search for drivers. I once tried to load a sound card and the company web site had the drivers with 3 files. Another unrelated driver site had the drivers with 5 files. Also check system info under system tools for IRQ conflicts. The bios which would be older might have a dilemma with the PNP. You might have to manually assign IRQs.Make sure you document your originals before proceeding. I also reccommned a product called Sisoft Sandra, the eval version should suit fine.

Hi, if drivers is a second option, try cheaking your multi media/ midi/ cheak what preferred devices are being used, you have the option of custom config, test etc. this usually can pin point the problem.
