Remove all soundcards and the net-card, turn off all unnecessary things
in bios (serial-card, parallell-card, usb, firewire, etc.), and see
if that helps. If that helps. turn back on everything one at the time.
Try also to set down the speed on memory, cpu, other stuff, in the 
bios, perhaps there is a safe-mode option or something.
