    don,t really know if this is a hardware or software issue or maybe
    both,but something is one card shy of a full deck!
    i lose all sound and mouse movement gets erratic after the comp.
    has idled for awhile,just goes south! so far i can reboot and viola!
    good sound and the mouse behaves! but something is wrong and
    i need help figuring out what it is! my system specs follow:
    amd 950 t-bird not o/c
    ecs k7s5a mobo w/ orig bios
    inno geforce 2 ti w/ 23.11 drvs 255/406
    maxtor 30gig @ 7200 rpm
    phillips accoustic edge sound card w/ xp drvs
    logitec 2x optical mouse
    winxp home ed
    norton internet sec &antivirus 2002
    this problem didn't appear until after i installed norton and the accoustic edge sound card. device manger says everything is working ok
    my temps are 13c/33c/43c according to mbm5 and sisoft sandra
    can any one advise please! thanks da rock:confused:

    I don't know what is wrong with these ecs motherboards ... do you happen to have also the integrated soundcard?
    I also have problems with sound (it doesn't stop but it chrisps) and mouse (the scrolling wheel stops responding)

    amd 900 tb
    ecs k7s5a w/o LAN w/ SB
    Ati rage pro II+ /4mb :(
    fujitsu 15gb /5400rpm
    genius netscroll+

    there have been alot of issues w/this board and amd 1.0-1.4
    gig cpus, most common are the cold boot and fsb issues, i haven't
    seen to many that involve pci sound , i have onboard sound dis-
    abled and use the onboard lan which works great.
    i think i remember seeing a post in this forum regarding sb live,
    if i understand your specs and you're using sb then you might want to look here for answers to your noise prob.
    thanks for your reply!

    First thing to try is : Un-install Nortons then see if you still have the problem.

    If you do then remove the sound card and then see if you still have the problem.

    If you still have the problem I would upgrade the BIOS on your motherboard !
