    Try a different PCI slot. You may have an IRQ conflict somewhere. Some MoBo's will allow you to change the IRQ assignments for each PCI slot in the BIOS, but that can be a bit "hit and miss"...

    That's all I got :cool:

    A soundcard reinstall is quick and easy. I would uninstall Delta drivers as well as the card and then put card back. See if computer recognizes new hardware and go from there.

    I work on computers alot... It is not a driver issue. If it was it would show up in Device manager with red or yellow mark next to the Device.

    Randyman is right on the money. Try a diffrent PCI slot. The one it is plugged into is conflicting with the Systems Resources.
