I'm confused on this one. Looking for any answers. Today I finally setup my carputer in my puter room for it's first testing. I'm using the following:
Old HP Pavilion MicroATX Case, modified.
AOpen M59 Pro II
Pentium 233 MMX
SB Live Value (2nd Ver)
Quantum 6.4 HD
For setup and playing my old PS/2 Mouse and current keyboard.
I have the following problem. When I'm playing sound/mp3 and moving a scroll bar I get a distorion. Only when sound is outputed AND moving a scroll bar. I believe it is from the mouse, but not totally ruled out yet. Any ideas why? Could this be a possible problem? Any suggsstions to fix?
Ok, I tested it with out the mouse and just the keyboard. Still does it. I tested with out the keyboard and with just the mouse, does it. The I tried both above with and with out monitor, still does it. It is only when I move a scroll bar. It doesn't happen anywhere else. All I can say is it is wierd. I guess it totally doesn't matter since my system will only have a VFD display. But I find it odd.

I have had the same problem in the past too. I assume it is just the mp3 "skipping" because moving the scroll bar takes a little cpu power that the mp3 needs. On a 233 this is probably the case. Do you have a lot of things running in memory that might also contribute to the problem?
Got started with computers on this board early in high school...now I run a web development company and am about to build my dream machine.
Winamp is the shell. Nothing else running. Give me a minute and I will check the IRQs.
I have a 200mhz k6-2 and sb live and it happens to me too, but when i do it on 450mhz k6-2 w/ same sound card, it works fine. So my conclusion is thats its the processor. BTW 200 has 96MB of ram and the 450 has 64 so its not the memory.

I too get the same problem, but my gf's computer doesn't.
mine is a Pentium 233MMX (overclocked to 266) with 64mb SDRAM and a genuine Creative labs SB 16.
Gf's box: K6-2 350, 64mb ram, and onboard sound, and hers works great.
