Every time I use my sound card, It makes my computer reboot. Right now I have it disabled in windows device manager so the computer is running fine. As soon as I enable it , the first time i use sound or something like the screen saver kicks in the computer reboots by its self. The sound card in a PCI card called Muse XL by hurcules. I dont know if this is and irq conflict or something else but i dont know how to find out either

Something easy to try first, move the sound card to a differnt pci slot from the one it's in. that should force it to use another irq

to view irq usage go to start/run/type msinfo32 and press enter, left hand frame, choose hardware environment, choose irq's. You will see the irq's usage listed in the right hand column.
