    I have switched video cards, tried removing soundblaster, swapped ram chips with no success.

    Typical of a bad sound card... I suspect your Audigy 4 Soundblaster has cooked its own goose from long use.

    I tried taking out the sound card with no improvement but I didn't uninstall the just disabled and removed from the machine.

    Would that change anything?
