no, it isn't the speakers (at least in my case), it's definately the
chip on the motherboard. it's not specifically the AC'97 either-- I
believe it relates more to the i810_audio chipset.

at any rate, I have installed a Sound Blaster Live! Value card into my
workstation, and disabled the i810 in the bios, and my sound works
perfectly now. :)
