I m using Creative 5.1 SB live. sound card,,

my other problem is related with the audio,, I m using 2 audio device, one is Creative 5.1 SB live (wdm) and second is USB sound card, (my builtin sound is burned coz of some broken sparked wired stereo pin)
the problem is with USB audio, when PC starts and when its reach to POST, in dell logo loading bar, the bar is jammed and and endless beep is start to ring.. I cant understand the problem before, then I got a idea and remove the USB audio, then this problem is gone, no beep is ringing nor jammed at POST,,
so tell me about this,, this issue never cams before..

Those audio services will act up if your power options are completely disabled. Happened to me anyway.
