    It's an Asus A7A266 motherboard and there are real strange symptoms (could it be from a power surge?). First of all I got the computer with a damaged nic driver in device manager, which after Ali-driver-update worked again. I thought already that was it. I was wrong! Suddenly blue screens came up with error 0x00000008e and 0x000000025 and so on. So I changed the memory (512MB noname) to 256MB. Now everything works fine except the speaker makes a strange noise after the welcome melody of XP (like a short loud feedback) and after shutdown (stops after a few seconds when computer is already off - like a humming). Cold boot works without any problems, that speaker problem is only at warm restart.
    I checked already another power supply and another ethernet card. I don't think it's the sound card, I think more about a damaged motherboard - could that be? Maybe there is somebody with a similar problem.
