RE: system trivia (groove/programming): DOS prompt/etc and choppy

Kevin, the latter of my response was to ep, and actually as I re-read it, I didn't explain fully. What I actually meant was to check whether the audio device (your sound card) is sharing an IRQ # with another device, such as your network card - or it could even be your hard drive. What will then happen is when you are playing a CD, you go to boot a program, and you HD has to do work to pull the program in to memory - but this disrupts your sound card as they are both sharing the same interrupt request.. <SPAN
Just a
thought really..

  sure that I am having trouble with setup. It's just that the burner is not   burning at 12x and I don't know why.  It's on it's own seperate IDE port   so it really shouldn't be complaining about anything!   <FONT color=#0000ff face=Arial

    use Nero here,  and have no complaints with it.


    class=773560608-28082001>One thing to bear in mind - do you have any     conflicts with your IRQ settings? If you are on Win2K, then you can go to     admin tools / Computer Management - and take a look in the <System     Information / Hardware Resources / Conflicts/Sharing> tree, it should     tell you there. There is also a folder for IRQs, which will tell you what     IRQ each component is set to.

    not on Win2K then you can look at your IRQ settings within your BIOS set-up,     usually within PNP Configuration I think - but don't hold me to that :P

      Very impressive burner.  Now my one at home is being a big pain in

          Really?  I thought it 
          was only because my personal pc has so little memory.   I 
          run into that behavior with explorer and playing mp3's at the same 
          time.  This also becomes a problem when burning a cd or changing 
          formats, and even though I leave it alone, sometimes it ends up a bit 
          How much memory do you have, 
          EP?  If I remember right you are the gamer and bought the big 
          huge system for the pc games?

            Windows still doesn't know how to
