Hi everyone, I was wondering if you could help me for a sec.... I just recently started to use my pc for recording. I didn't have a huge budget so I bought the Audiophile 2496 soundcard because it was recomended to me as one of the best starter cards out there. Well my system keeps locking up whenever I do anything with the card. I mean a few crashes when I have 20 tracks streaming at once I suppose I could understand. But this thing isnt stable enough to run winamp!!!!! I mean a $200 dollar card that can't play Mp3's??? When it crashes it will make this really awful noise through the monitors, sorta like an oven timer, I guess an infinite loop or something. It locks up solid too, NO CTRL-ATL-DEL or anything. I have tried every operating system I own with this thing, except for linux, which isn't practical for me right now. I have tried the new drivers and all the tweaks I can find everywhere. I just can't figure it out. My system AMD Athlon 1200 mhz CPU on a matsonic MB with Via kt133 chipset 128 MB of ram (I have a feeling this could be making it worse) Nvidia GeForce2 400 video card Any help is appreciated...!
