    Turn off all system sounds to see if that helps: Control Panel>Hardware and Sound>System sounds and choose No Sounds from the dropdown list under Sound Schemes.

    Darn! Well at least we can rule those out. I wouls say try another media player and see what happens next. I'm pretty sure it is a software problem...you have the latest drivers installed, or are they the Windows drivers for this card?

    tried foobar, windows media, windows media classic and its driver from the card maker

    it happen only when i load/refresh a website either with FF or IE

    din't had that problem with XP , someone mention because vista volume mixer take charge of the sound.

    Right click on the speaker icon next to the clock > Sounds > set the "Sound Scheme" to "no sounds". See what happens.

    Some Dell laptops had a sound problem with Vista (mine did). The sound would break up or crackle for a few seconds every few minutes, which is aggravating because I listen to a lot of music on my lappy. There's a program called Vista Anti-lag that solved the problem, but Windows 7 cured it altogether.
