Audigy disappeared after overclocking?

I don't exactly have an "extreme" O/C going on -- here are the specs:

Mobo: MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum
CPU: Amd 3500+ CPU (Newcastle .13 micron)
CPU voltage 1.55 + 5%
HT 225
LDT 4X
CPU mult 11X
DDR clock 166 MHz (which becomes 190 MHz)
Nforce 4 voltage: 1.6
Memory voltage: 2.65

So my CPU becomes a 2,508 MHz from a 2,200.

Anyhow, using Clockgen, I can see that my PCI bus is still 33 MHz, even though there is no "PCI lock" per se in the BIOS.

Nevertheless, right now my Audigy card -- the only PCI in the system (the only other card PERIOD is a PCI-Express ATI Sapphire X300) - is not being found by Windows XP.

What should I try doing? I am still using the stock BIOS -- v1.1. Should I upgrade to v1.5 (which I found on MSI's website)?
I can't figure out why it can't find the card. I would try enabling the onboard sound, but that would lower my recording quality.

I am one of those few that actually needs an add-in card For movies, games, listening to music, and 99% of the population, integrated sound is just fine. But if you're hooking up a microphone to record singing, etc. -- then there's a lot of noise if you use an onboard sound card.

Thanks,

Matthew

Many of us actually overclocked with our added in sound card fixed onto the mobo
Not much an issue
What i can suggest is try this

. test your sound card on another mobo (dead?)
. re-sit your sound card
. flash to the lastest bio
. manually assign irq in the bios
