That sounds like a driver problem. Get the latest drivers for your sound card from your manufacturer's website.

Did that change when you installed a new software or was it always that way?

mentioning about driver, i would suggest that you use the driver provided by win2000 if available. This set of driver is proven to work with win2000. Some times the incomplability issue might arise
 

Remove the previous installed driver and repeat installation with the driver that comes with win2000.

Is the Sound Card Win2k complaint to begin with?
If not you need to check the Hardware Compaitablity List

http://www.microsoft.com/hcl/default.asp

Then from the page enter in the company name of the Sound Card and select Audio from the drop down menu.

Then once you find out it is complaint then check the website of the maker of the sound card to get the proper win2k drivers, there also may be other factors involved, but until you give some feedback we will leave it at this to start.
