Partial Video Freeze/Capture

Last Modified: 2013-11-13

I am using a Windows XP, SP2 Machine with all current updates. I am running a program called MLogger which is a program that captures audio. This program basically records files on a constant basis through the day and every 30 minutes initiates a write process. During this write process, the machine creates a small area on the screen (4 sq inches or so) which I will call a video capture or video freeze. While the program continues to run, this freeze basically holds a frame of whatever passes over it.

For example, if I open IE whatever is on my webpage over that "frozen" window will stay there. I have made sure that all drivers are current from the manufacturers websites. I have 2GB of RAM, Dual 2.8's and an onboard 82915G video card. I have also made sure that DirectX is current. Any help would be appreciated as this is truly annoying. Thanks
Watch Question

This is hard to say. It kinda of sounds like a program problem, but it could be directly related to your sounds card or video card. Are you using built in sound card that is on the motherboard or have one plugged into a PCI slot?


We are using the onboard video card and four stacked SoundBlaster audio cards
