Yeah (I have ESD equipment at home, for fiddling with mobo's etc.).

But it turns out I lied, because I did change something a while back: I added
a new soundcard to my wife's PC. As it turns out, after I moved it to a
different PCI slot the problem went away. Whoever designed PCI ought to be

My apologies for wasting everybody's time.
