Please can you help?

I have been advised that my PC keep crashing because in my DirectX Diagnostic info there are 2 sound devices - Creative SB Live and Modem #0 Line Playback (emulated). I need to remove the second but it does not appear in my Device Manager.

I have XP 5.1 and a broadband connection

Pulling my hair out!!!!

Thanx

It's not a physical device so you probably can't delete it without dumping your modem. It's probably not causing any problems anyway. You can test the emulated device in DXDiag by selecting one of the "Sound" tabs and then clicking the "Test DirectSound" button. If there really is a problem with it then you can try turning "Hardware Sound Acceleration Level" to "No Acceleration".
