Fedora Core Test 3 - Sound Problems

Hi guys this is my first post, I see you guys do a good job of answering questions so I was hoping you could help me out.

I am using Fedora Core Test 3, when I installed it and did the test sound, I heard the sound correctly.

However, when I booted into KDE, all sounds, CD Audio, MP3's and system sounds, are fuzzy and distorted. When I play an audio cd its even more fuzzy, so much that you cant even hear the vocals.

I messed with the sound mixer all day, nothing helps. I can make the sound louder but not clearer.

I have an Ensoniq sound card which I believe is a soundblaster model. Any ideas?

Me has an Ensoniq ES1371 onboard (MSI 6151)
and it's running fine (playing Mod / MP3 with Xmms + MP3 addon) in KDE.
Also Playing audio CD's with KsCD is working without problems.

Vendor = Ensoniq
Model = ES1371 (Audio PC 97)
Module = snd-ens1371

But it might be someting wrong with this thing:
start Tux-Racer -> sound is avail (effects - getting a fish - are too late)
leave Tux-Racer
start chromium -> NO SOUND
leave chromium
open terminal and run system-config-soundcard as su
press "play testsound" button
-> if you hear the sound, fine - press ok
-> maybe the app freezes (and after a while it starts playing the sound, so be patient)
start chromium again -> sound is avail
Distro Killer Test System:
Intel Pentium II 400 Mhz - 256 MB Ram, MS6151 Mainboard with ESS 1371 Onboard Sound, Ati Radeon 9200se AGP, Adaptec 2940 PCI SCSI Controller, SCSI Zip Drive 100 internal, HP Scanjet 4C SCSI, RealTek PCI Ethernet Card (for DSL connection), PM = 10GB HDD, PS = LG GSA4081B, SM = 4 GB HDD (vfat), SS = LiteOn 40x CD-Rom
RH9 -> Success, Suse 8.2/9/9.1 -> Failed, MDK9 -> Failed, FC2 -> Failed, MDK10 -> Success, FC3 -> Success

I had the same problem, how I fixed it was to open kmix from the sound and video, click
advanced and then turn off IEC958

After I did that it worked like a charm no more buzzing!!!!....
