I recently looked at a friends machine, having sound probs, ended up in device manager.
Under other devices with an exclaimation mark are three items i have never seen:

There are no added devices except a modem, dvd rom, hdd, floppy.
xp pro
semperon cpu
soltek board
ddr 333 mem
wanadoo connection (adsl)
sis onboard vid
ac97 onboard sound

Original problem still echoing sound, but only on hifi cd, (not mp3 or windows sounds).
I wander if these problems might have something to do with the sound prob, probably not.

Any help appreciated
