recently i have switched from windows 7 back to windows xp. on windows 7 cubase worked perfectly with no latency thanks to asio4all.

but i re-installed xp, and now im having problems, when im running my POD into the mic input of my computer, its constantly monitoring the audio input (even when im not using cubase) and when i am using cubase it wont record, and when i click to monitor the audio track i get alot of noise.

my soundcard is built in and uses the realtek AC97 drivers.

anyone had a similar problem before?

any help will be much appreciated
