I have an Excel Audio CS4237 in a Windows 95 machine. The sound card used to work fine until yours truely reinstalled Win95. Now, CD music works fine and MIDI files play allright, but WAV files play the first 8 seconds or so and keep repeating the same sound perpetually. By going into sound recorder and playing another sound and then stopping it the sound then stops, but the problem still persists for all WAV files played after that.

The repeating loop of sound is an indication of an improper IRQ setup.  That is, Win95 and the sound card are not in agreement as to what IRQ the card is using.  Check the card setup and verify/change either Win95 or the card so that they match.
