Audio Trouble when errors encountered
Posted on 2004-04-15
I am running Windows 2000 Professional SP4 on my PC, and for some reason, whenever there is a system sound played, such as "Do you want to save...", the chord sound is started, but then restarted. I am not doing a very good job of explaining this, am I?!?
I'll try again: The start of the sound is played, and then the whole sound is played to its completion. It sounds the same as if you go to the Sounds and Multimedia tab, and then press the ">" play button to play a event sound, then stop it, and then play it properly.
Is this a hardware fault or software/driver problem. I don't think that it is hardware, as it used to work under Windows 98, and also, if I just click the play button to play the sound, it works properly, but if I then click on the desktop, and press Z (I do not have a shortcut beginning with Z), it does the strange double starting play.
If it helps, my computer is a Compaq Deskpro 4000/5133 with an Avance Logic ALS100+ sound card.
Also, I am sorry that this is not a high points rating, as I am relatively new here, and don't have many to play with.
Your help is appreciated,
