Looks like some app is trying to use the Esound driver for sound output, but your card is not supported with that driver. Are you running AIM and Mozilla from that console?

You should be able to get that info from doing 'cat /proc/pci' w/out quotes of course. Post the output from that command.

I would look into AIM a little bit though, and see if there's a way to change the driver it is trying to use because if sound works well on everything else there's no reason to mess with it. Just work on the troublemaker which seems to be AIM. Look for the 'event' panel or something of the like (i don't use aim) where you can configure the sounds.
