i think i had the same problem...
sounds like driver problem, i seem to notice thatr it usually is with the audigy cards.
fully un-install drivers, then re insatll.
if that doesn't work, uninstall drivers, move card to different pci slot, then install drivers.
look for newer drivers than what are on your installation cd.
if none of that works you may have a bad card.
