Default Sound card crackling

I am currently running Win2k and Linux and have done so for months.

The other day, after burning an audio CD, my sound stopped working and there was just crackling. This crackling varies in volume and responds to mouse movement, modem activity etc. Only MIDI works! mp3 etc and system sounds can't be heard.

According to Creative Support, I reinstalled the card (no change). I then changed PCI slot. It then worked perfectly. About 3 days later (also after burning a CD) it broke again (reinstalling didn't help). I don't dare risk another PCI slot and I don't want to put a new card into a possibly malfunctioning (ASUS A7V133) motherboard! Is it my board or sound card? Any ideas?!!
