    Is this what you have? Mix reviews on this one... Try a different PCI slot away from the AGP or where your Videocard is... Are you using Video card?

    Well it might be interfering IRQ I/O (input/output) with it that's why? I say put it on your last PCI slot.

    -------AGP
    -------PCI=1
    -------PCI=2
    -------PCI=3
    sound-PCI=4

    Sounds like the drivers for your soundcard have become screwed up somehow. Try uninstalling the soundcard drivers, then install the newest one from the website of the manufacturer.
    Edit:
    And If that doesn't work, then I would try installing it another computer, to see if the problem lies with the card.

    You have Norton AV 2007 disable that and try the game again. You need to see what's cause the sound problems?
