Hi GuysI got this POPUP and wondering what it means.Thanks.December 28, 2008 at 3:57 am #30662
You haven't stated whether your audio still works ok. The message means either the onboard sound in your computer is faulty, or there is a driver issue. I'd start by uninstalling and reinstalling the device. If the problem persists, seek updated drivers for this device, or if you have recently updated the driver, try rolling back to the previous one. If none of these work, its likely you have a hardware issue. If the audio works, and the popup isnt there every time you use the audio, then it may be easiest to just live with it. If it really bugs you, since its an onboard audio issue, the easiest way to fix a hardware issue is to permanently uninstall it and fit an aftermarket sound card.Another thing that is possible is that you have installed something else recently thats creating a conflict. Have you recently added anything that can access audio, like a webcam ?

Thanks dak.Audio works fine.This is a brand new custom built Computer.Checked Device Manager and all is fine,so that would eliminate a driver issue,would you agree.A software program I am running was immediately shut down by Windows,I presume.The icon immediately vanished from the task bar.Everything else seems fine.Just get worried when something appears,that I don't understand.Maybe best to wait and see if this POPUP appears again?Would you suggest uninstalling,and reinstalling the program?Installed nothing that can access Audio.December 28, 2008 at 6:18 am #30664
I wouldn't agree that device manager showing no problems negates a driver issue. The fact that the audio is still working, and device manager's advice makes it seem likely that its not though. I'd point out that even new components can be faulty, but I doubt thats the case.Its possible that the popup was a one-off.. a bit of a hiccup perhaps, it certainly happens.I'd be curious to know which application was shut down, but I'd leave things as they are for now and watch for a re-occurence.

Thanks dak.May have been one of those unexplainable Windows wonders, that occur,from time to time.The program was QLOCK,World Time Program.Seemed unusual,both happened, at the same moment.I will watch for a re-occurence.You advice is much appreciated.December 28, 2008 at 9:14 pm #30666
I have had this…It was the driver having an issue with a codec I had installed…And no it does not show in control panels device manager because the driver was still running. I removed the codecs and the messges still came up…Then I had to reinstall the audio driver to get it working…. You can also get this from just having a simple clash amongst programs wanting to use your audio...This is why I have system restore ready to go as it is easy to turn back time...
