Sounds like the mobo is dying.

I just noticed you have an ANCIENT Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE

I wouldn't be surprised if THAT thing is dead. Wow, surprised it's lasted you this long.

You'll be pleasantly surprised to learn that sound cards have come a long way since then, so buying a new one won't just be replacing it. It'll sound great.

Could be, but it is more likely the sound card. It has already been 4 days, so if reseating the card, reinstalling the drivers does not work, I would probably go out and buy another sound card. I'm guessing the warranty on that old Sound blaster is over already.

Pull the old audigy, and try it without. It's probably died and it messing up your SB by sending trash over the PCI link.

I can't believe that didn't cross my mind, lol. What crossed my mind was this one guy who came in here with a similar problem and told us the next day that his mobo had died. Let's hope that it's the sound card that's dead!
