My problem is that since I installed XP Professional x64 edition, and using either genuine Creative Labs or Microsoft sound drivers, there is frustrating audio tearing/clicking whenever a sound is played. It seems to me like an Interrupt issue, but I cannot fix it. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

I have fixed the problem. The issue was to do with the PCI Wait timer on the motherboard. Lowering from 64 to 32 resolved the issue.
