    Annoying Error message

    The "To enable the advanced sound for gaming" error message pops uncontrollably when using the control panel. I did what the error message recommended but this had no effect.

    I have installed SP-4 as well as all the patches and this may be either an unintended consequence of one of those patches or something that happened when I installed video cards to have a two-monitor capability.

    Does anybody know how to turn the damned thing off?

    Could well be to do with your sound card. What do you have, and have you checked for driver updates for it?

    Bingo! Woody's Wonders win again!

    My sound card is integrated into the motherboard and I rarely use it so i rarely think about it. When I removed it from the hardware profile the pop-ups went away (at least so far).

    This makes a certain sense because a video adapter is also built in and when I put a video card into the AGP slot, the one on the MB disappeared. I had to dust off an old S-3 card that fits a PCI slot to get the other monitor to work.

    Thanks for the help.
