    If you are using an Abit NF7-S then there are known problems with the South bridge getting too hot, and making the sound go bad. I dont know if this is isolated to the onboard sound, or if the sound cards suffer from the same problem.

    Got this problem on the A7N8X-D V2.0 as well. I found moving DVD from Slave to Master sorted it.

    Jester, try moving the card lower down on the PCI slots. I had an issue with a gigabyte board and the only PCI slot my old audigy would work in was slot 4.

    Hope this information helps
