Do you have a WinModem with voicemail capability, something like 
that? Because I was having the same problem with my SB-compabile 
sound card until I yanked my WinModem, which had a patch wire linked 
to the card, and apparently this messed up the DMA i/o addresses, 
etc., etc.

Just a thought. Maybe you should just look at your sound card and see 
what else it's hooked up to, besides the motherboard.
