    look at your system information (start>accessories) and see if it's conflicting/sharing irq assignments with anything. sometimes soundcards cause hard to track down problems like this because they are part of a resource conflict.

    Thx for reply guys. There are no conflicts. everything is fine. Drivers ... seems to be good. where can i get new ones? at sound blaster they dont have them.

    Could this be caused by Video card? I think it started when i updated my video drivers too.
