I have win95 running with SB16 card and latest drivers from
creative labs site. It plays CDs and multimedia files fine
but it causes little noise when I play windows WAV files.

I don't understand what is the problem ? Some one told me it
might be 'decoder' problem! When I checked I have about a
 dozen audio decoders installed on my system. How do I know
 which one is causing problems ? and what to do there after?

Might be something simpler.
When you are using the Microsoft Windows Sound System version 2.0
with Windows 95 and you mute the volume using the Audio Control
icon, you may hear clicking sounds when you play a .WAV file.

Try changing the sound cable running from your CD to your sound card. Poor shielding in these cables can actually allow them to pickup noise from within your system.

You may need to shield your PC from a local radio station tower which can cause interference. In addition, there are patches available from the manufacturer.

OK...go to Start | Run... and type sndvol32  then hit enter
Make sure that the wav audio is not turned all the way.  If it is, turn it down, and adjust the volume on the speakers to compensate for the lower output level.  If that doesn't work, I might have the card checked out at a Creative authorized service center to verify that the wav processing components of the card are not damaged.
