Remove and reseat the sound card. Check alignment of the slot in the metal
bracket attached to the soundcard circuit board and the mounting screw hole
in the computer case. In my case the slot/screw hole was misaligned and
caused problems. Usually problems occurred immediately after plugging in a
cord into the soundcard.
