Looking at your /proc/interrupts it appears that your sound card
( HDA intel ? ) is sharing an interrupt with a usb port.
It really it needs one to itself.
Assuming your system uses grub bootloader, as root-user edit the file
/boot/grub/menu.lst and add the following to the kernel line ( try one
at a time and then both ) :
so that the boot entry looks something like this ( my system ) :
title Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 184.108.40.206-rt3
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-220.127.116.11-rt3 root=/dev/hda5 ro acpi=off noapic
be aware that this may effect the power management facilities of your
box. for example my desktop box no longer turns itself off on shutdown,
i have to switch it off.
hope this helps, best wishes G.
