Also run the DPC checker again while your system is in this state. If it turns out clean, you may have encircled the culprit. But yes, the figures look muuch better.

Definitely. The only thing I can think of is that the onboard was selected as "preferred device" in XP, you should set that to the soundblaster then. But I assume you didn't even install a driver for the onboard sound (I couldn't see one in your RATT logs), which would render that even weirder. The Audigy should still be recognized in Device Manager. If it isn't, no idea what went wrong there. Does ASIO4ALL still see the device?

You have a real audio interface (your 404) with native ASIO drivers, I can imagine why you want to use the Soundblaster+ASIO4ALL but I wouldn't recommend it.

If you have SP3, the latest version of portcls.sys is already on your computer.
