Hit alt+tab and turn off the pr0n.
Seriously- update your AC97 drivers.
I'm using HT Omega Striker 7.1. It's not an AC97 issue.

Yeah, friggen siren noise is so annoying. Queue for WvW for 3 years only to get in for 5 mins and get off because of the sound <.< Though I found a solution. I asked a guy in chat and he said to turn down game volume and lower sound quality a bit. He said that the siren noise was happening because the game was overloading the computers sound stuff. Not too sure what exactly he was talking about, but I tried his cure and it actually worked.
I did notice that it only happens when there's a metric buttload of things going on (i.e. Shadow Behemoth with like 50 people, or zerg vs zerg in WvW). But I doubt it's my sound card overloading, as it's a pretty damn good card. I'm pretty sure it's the game engine simply bugging out when it's made to play like a billion different sounds at the same time.
It's really annoying though. You're right, after about 6 hours in WvW queue, as soon as I get into a huge fight... WWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH WWWOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHH
