i have a soundblaster x-fi gamer edition sound card by creative. this is the second time this has happened to me while on my comp. if it helps this is a new build i just put together a week ago. the wierd thing about this noise is that i can restart and it goes away and doesnt happen agian or atleast from what i have seen so far. this last time it happened i was playing c&c3 and the comp has been for about 3 hours now. i was wondering if anyone has any idea why it makes this noise and how to fix it.

Hey mate. I would suggest ensuring that the card is seated and connected properly on your motherboard. Secondly uninstalling the x-fi software and reinstalling might help. Also download and install the latest drivers for your card.
If all else fails, hit the reset button.

How are the speakers connected? Have you tried a different set of speakers or a set of headphones to make sure its the card?

well i think its good now... i went to creative labs forms and there were many people with tehsane problem. the solution was to update the asus bios because of some compatibility issues between the creative soundcards and asus mobos..... i updated today and played diablo2 for a few an hour so so and so far nothing has happened..... however i thinki have soem kind of popping cracking noise in the background bu ttha might just be the game. so so far i think everything is good. if something comes up ill let you all know. thanks for hte help.
