The KDE sound system?

I get an error msg stating ¨CPU overload, aborting restart of sound system¨.

See above.

This automagically occurs when I click the ¨full duplex¨ button in KDE 
Control Center.

I am clicking the ¨full duplex¨ button in the hardware tab of the sound 
system window of KDE Control Center.

This is onboard sound, but, the PIII had onboard sound, too, and an 
older mobo.

I suppose I was hoping someone would tell what further information was 
needed to diagnose
the problem, and, possibly even, where I would find that information in 
order to divulge it.
How do I determine what my sound card is?  (I only know it is, indeed, 
onboard the mobo, and
not an added card).
