Thank you Koldbear, I'm giving your suggestions a try. I have at last
managed to find a download site with the latest drivers. I got it wrong,
it's not a Vortex s/c but an Aztech A3D PCI338 using the same chipset. Wish
1) Check for new drivers for your audio card.
2) Try reinstalling them.
Boot into Safe Mode
Open Device Manager
Remove all Audio devices.
