Try removing the sound card thru the dive manager and let windows redetect everything. This will usually fix your sound problems. Sounds like there is a bad driver somewhere? Let me know how it goes and I will give you futher assistance if this doesn't work.

    Sorry about that, I meant the "Device manager". If using Windows XP go to Start and then RIGHT CLICK My Computer and scroll down to properties. Now click on the Hardware Tab. Click the Device Manager button now. Scroll down the list until you see the Sound, Video and Game Controllers. Delete the ones to your sound card or any that have the Exclamation Point on them. The do a reboot of your system.
