    I just recently installed WindowsXP ,and after having spent quite some time ironing out numerous bugs and annoyances, but i cant fix this ;

    When i play mp3's , watch movies or something i get snapping and crackling sounds , like some kind of interference ..

    My headphones are in pristine condition and worked fine before, there is nothing touching the sound card inside the box, and everything worked fine before XP.

    I found some advice about this on , whereas i was told to change the irq address of my Soundcard, wich its sharing with my Nic ... but i cant change it , it just doesnt allow me to., I think its rather likely this is a Hardware conflict but winxp doesnt allow me to change the irq of the sound card or nic card.

    My Specs:

    MSI KT-ARU 333
    512mb DDR 333mhz
    MSI Geforce4 Ti4400 128mb
    Soundblaster Live! X-Gamer
    30gb IBM 7200 ATA100
    120gb WD 7200 Ata100
