what\'s your chipset and soundcard? (and perhaps other specifics). i recently added a new machine, and am having occasional pops. my initial thought was that it was a clocking problem, but now i\'m starting to think that it might be another culprit, as my original GigaPC (intel 815/wavecenter pci) still seems to be purring along.
my new machine is an SiS chipset, also w/ a wavecenter pci & WIN98SE. as far as i can tell, there are no IRQ issues, but i\'m a mac guy so all this PC stuff is still pretty new to me.
