EsounD on Intel chip

my problem is that esound is acting up, but since i have had this installed exactally the same on several systems now, and there hasnt been a problem softwarely, i figure it is hardware. Here is the problem. If i use, in kde, anything other than esound the sound is fine. but when i use esound, the sound is..........backed up.....maybe. like if i play an mp3, it sounds very distorted, but also the notes are off. like i am slowing it down. my cpu usage jumps up about 99% and stays that way long after i stop the audio. This is particularly a problem cause i use enlightenment and it uses esd. I cant figure it out for the life of me. i am a mad googler too, and i cant seem to get the right combination of words to get me anywhere. Here is lspci, although i am not sure what kind of good the info will do.

The system is an HP Pavilion dv1000 series notebook, with the quickplay and all that good stuff that takes forever to get working. As you can see it is the intel sound card. works great with all other sound servers, so must be esound, which is software, but have used it on other hardware and works great, so i dont know. i tried giving it different priorities, and that did no good. I tried upgrading esound, and still no good. same output. any help is greatly appreciated. thanks.

well, no responses. but i think i have it figured out. I went back to using slackware 10.0. maybe something to do with the new esound, or maybe kernel, or maybe alsa-driver, or maybe alsalib. One of those i am sure. sorry i posted in the hardware section of the forum, but i wasnt sure. someone might be able to try removing the esound-0.2.35 and installing the 0.2.34 version, if they are having the same prob.
