After about 1.5 hrs of pc use, keep getting the error msg "mmtask has caused an error in WDMAUD.DRV"
Have to reboot computer. However, sometimes before reboot the pc just freezes & have to switch off on unit & start again with Scan Disc.
Anyone any idea "what went wrong!"?

Not sure if this will help but...

MMTASK provides simulated multitasking for multimedia applications - i.e. if you were playing more than one movie at a time.

WDMAUD.DRV is a sound card driver.

Have you tried updating your sound card drivers?

No I have not. How do I find out what Sound Card I have? & do you know best place to try & see if an update is available?
Thanx 4 reply
