Look for updated drivers. If that doesnt fix the problem get a new card.

I'm not familiar with that soundcard. Adequate sound cards are VERY cheap these days.

Try any Creative ( sound card, just not the original Soundblaster, too many compatibility issues. That's all I've been using with my XP machines since 2001. No problems to date.

If not Creative then any soundcard that has the "Made for Windows XP" logo will do fine.
