Move the soundcard to another pci slot & while you have the
case open give the inside a clean out, dust can cause all sorts
of problems, when you put things back together make sure
everything is plugged in securely & that you have no damaged
cables, good luck & let us know how it goes

Thanks for the reply.

The problem is that i cant move the card to a nother slot
because of the graphic card fan there is no more room and
i keep my computer clean as a whistle.
the cables are ok to.

When you say audio do you mean music cds or is it any type of audio?
The reason I ask is it may be an actual faulty speaker problem or a
cd/dvd drive problem.

Has your MB got onboard sound & if so does that work ok?
Some other possibilities are the SB itself, its drivers,
static or wireless interference.
Have you got a wirelees card fitted or a router anywhere
near your speakers, if so try moving them further away, Ive
not done this myself but I have read that if you rub a pencil
eraser along the gold finger on the card it will dispel any
static that has built up, try un-installing all previous SB
drivers & re-installing compatible drivers from here instead;

You can also try muting any sound devices you are not using.
Hope this helps & let us know how it goes.
