I re-installed the driver. Did not change anything. Again, the sound works fine but, i am still getting error. The driver that i am using is, "Sigmatel Driver, Stac 92XX C-Major HD audio, the version is 18.104.22.16823.A05, that i downloaded off the dell.com site. This is the only driver option i have for my system. If it helps at all, i am using a Dell Dimension E310. I uninstalled that last night and re-installed it, and the problem is still there, yet, as i said, the sound still works. Someone has suggested that i go to softpedia.com and get a driver there. The driver that is posted on that website to download is Sigmatel Stac 92XX, but the version is 22.214.171.12415. I am assuming that, that is a more recent, more updated driver??? Any thoughts???
