    Audio problem System Freeze


    Hi all i have a problem with my audio

    the problem is that when i play cd's mp3's etc after around 2 minutes the whole system freezes this just started happening yesterday have not installed anything since then

    the motherboard is fujitsu siemens with intel 810 chipset with onboard audio (ac 97) but i have this disabled instead i use my pci - C-Media sound card

    it also doesnt matter what media players i use ive tested with jetaudio winamp win media player they all do the same after between 2 and 3 minutes

    i have a intel celeron 466mhz processor and 64mb sdram 1 4.3 gb hard drive (c) and a 2gb hard drive (d) which all my mp3 files are on

    ive tried re installing windows 98 onto another drive but still the same problems also reinstalled the drivers associated with the audio devices

    here is a list of audio devices in my device manager

    C-Media PCI audio legasy device
    CMI8738/C3DX PCI Audio Device
    DOS Mode MPU-401 Emulator
    GamePort Joystick
    GamePort Joystick
    MPU-401 Compatible
    Soundmax integrated Digital Audio
    Wave Device For Voice Modem

    I really dont know what has caused this problem as nothings been changed since it was all fine a couple of days ago

    have just tried windows media player it wont play anything at all now but the others jetaudio plays for around 2 minutes then system crashes and sticks to repeating the same part of audio
    any advice would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks

    Does the computer crash when you do anything else, or just when you play music?
    If its just music, you could try uninstalling and reinstalling your media players. The easiest thing is probably a reformat, though it would probably take the most time.
