i am at my witts end but i feel there may be a community here that can lead me in the right direction! thanks much for your very anticipated help
here we go...
i am running a celeron 1.7 that i built several years ago. i have a spacewalker motherboard and i have two ide hard drives and an old ide hp cd-writer. i have a creative labs soundblaster live 5.1 sound card installed in the pci. just recently i added a matrox 16 mb dual vga graphics card. now, when i am playing music (i usually use winamp but i have also experienced the issue while using napsters program) and surfing the net (most prominent with firefox, but also noticed in ie) i get these beeping ssounds when i click to load something. when i go into my ebay, it will beep constantly until the page is fully loaded. and if i click on another tab it will beep then too. the beeping does not happen if i am not already running a program using the sound card. does anyone have any idea what this might be? i have upraded to the newest drivers for my sound card. the problem is that i also installed some a/v codec programs just before/after i installed the PCI graphics card. i have since uninstalled the software. XP automatically found the driver for my matrox card. if there is any other info i can give, i will be happy too! thanks
