I don't have any experience with VIA systems (other than my archaic
Pentium MMX Asus board ...) so can't give any advice on that front.
However, it could also be audio related - ensure ALSA (if you're using
that!) is setup correctly - try the extra audio buffering/aggressive
buffering available in the frontend setup and see if this has any
effect on things.
