I have actually been seeking resolution of this problem for a year now. I
have installed xp on many, many systems and have never seen this problem
Seems like every sound that is attached to a system event like select, menu
command, and menu popup, causes the operating system to pause till the sound
This does not happen each and every time, but often enough to drive one
My system was also very unstable while this was happening. Until I turned
off all system event sounds. Now all works fantastic. System very stable.
I have an AMD x2 dual core 4600+. 3gig DDR2 800mhz
Anybody have any suggestions. This must have something to do with whether
the sound runs syncronous or a-syncronous. or perhaps with buffering?
Your insight and help is appriciated. Thanks
