So the sound card (Intel Device 284Bh 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller) is sharing IRQ 17 with the WiFi card (Intel 3945 a/b/g) and one of the USB controllers. Could this be a possible cause of the hangs I've been experiencing? Since I turned off animation I have had fewer hangs. I currently have UniAud 1.1.4 RC6 with Paul's uniaud16test2 and uniaud32-1.9.4. Sound is not working for Z!, but is for system sounds and was for Flash (I haven't used Flash in a couple days since it seemed to hang when I tried to play a youtube SWF, but it did play these at once).
