I recently installed an Ensoniq S4016 VIVO ISA card into my P3 system. It seemed to work fine, however I get these random loud static noises when a game or windows plays a sound. It seems to be related to Hardware acceleration because when I turn it off, the problem goes away.
Has anyone encountered this problem before? What do I do? I've tried different drivers, different ports and IRQ's, changing the IRQ"s in the bios from plug and play to ISA legacy, disabled the gameport, etc; Nothing seems to fix this other than turning off hardware acceleration. I even tried different versions of Directx.
Pentium 3 MMX 600mhz

Voodoo 3 2000 16MB
Serial and Parallel ports disabled in BIOS
It is possible to commit no errors and still lose. That is not a weakness, that is life.
