Problem with graphics card/sound chipset

This is really driving me crazy. I got an ECS motherboard on VIA K7VZA chipset (with
integrated sound card), 256 SDRAM, AMD Athlon 1.2gHz, Daytona GeForce 2mx 32mb, Maxtor
40GB ATA/100 HDD all of this running under Win'98se. And this is the case - when I run a
game that requires Direct3d mode and in some cases OpenGL all goes smooth, but after a
while i get a high pitched noise and it hangs up. The same happens when i sometimes try to
play an mp3 file, and I have to play it first in KaZaA otherwise and error pops-up that
this format can't be played. I thought it was due to the graphics card drivers so I
updated them, no change.I think it's caused by the motherboard but maybe there is some
kind of a patch to solve this problem, because I can't have a second of entertainment on
my PC. Thanks in advance and sorry for my poor English.

Have you installed the VIA 4 in 1 chipset drivers? These often fix issues with communicating via the AGP port, which frequently causes crashes like you mention. The other thing I'd check is the sound card drivers--since the problems always occur when playing sound, they're probably a more likely candidate than the video drivers!

If my suggestion solved your problem, why a B grade?

well i didn't solve it actually but it kind of delayed the time of hanging up. it still does, but i now know that it's caused by the built-in sound codec. Your advice still helped me, there's no doubt about it.
