Default Permanent Background Sound

I seem to have this permanent recurring noise in the background. It sounds abit like the sound from when you start pinball on windows xp. It keeps on playing throughout anything i may be doing on the computer? is there any way I can get rid of this? (and btw, pinball is NOT running in the background).

many thanks,

you'll have to download the new drivers, uninstall the old drivers, then reinstall the new ones. Some times just following the steps in the wizard will uninstall the old ones for you.

To get the new drivers, you will need to know what type of sound card you have, (if you have one), or what type of motherboard you have, if you have integrated sound. If you have a factory build you can go to the manufacturer's website, and they should be able to give you this information as well as drivers.

Post back with more questions, or if you have problems with the installer.
