Hi Laura. Are you using the onboard soundcard? Perhaps you could disable it, 
either in the BIOS, or from jumpers on the MOBO as I have done. It might help 
to remove potential problems, as I see both cards are using irq9. This may or 
may not be causing a problem, but if you just have your Audigy card enabled, 
at least you are only dealing with that card. Nigel.
