Hi all,

I have a headache with my recent problem. I have a Creative SoundBlaster sound card installed in a Pentium 4 1300Mhz which runs Windows XP SP2. The sound card used to work fine. Recently the volume icon in the taskbar tray keeps muted off and on all the time. When I double-click it to open the Volume Control window, I see the Mute All checkbox keeps checked and unchecked continuously. I can hear sound from the sound card, but of course it's not perfect due to the muted off activity.

I installed Ubuntu 9.04 on a different partition, and Ubuntu detected the same problem. The sound icon in Ubuntu kept muted off and then back on all the time. So the problem is not with Windows.

I bought a new sound card and installed it in the machine. I saw the same problem. When I installed the new sound card in a different computer, it worked. So the problem is not with the sound card.

I don't know what's going on here. Is it something with the motherboard or something else?

Can anyone help me with this? Thanks.
