You may have an interrupt conflict. Use the command dmesg
to see if any interrupts have been assigned at boot. Also,
sndconfig may produce the file /etc/isapnp.conf which will
specify resource usage for a variety of devices. Check that
file. Also, look at /etc/modules.conf. Sometimes isapnp.conf
can really mess things up. If you were not using it before,
you might rename it and then try to adjust the resource
setting in conf.modules.
You might also view existing interrupts with
but this doesn't necessarily show all the interrupts in use.
