Specs: Windows XP
I have made a clean install and reformat with XP Pro. With nothing running and CPU usage 2% or less I get "Not enough memory to complete the operation..." when I click on Windows Sound Recorder and record a couple of sentences. The error occurs as soon as I click the "stop button." I re-installed all the latest drivers for everything. Everything else runs fine...internet runs fast. Can anyone tell me what to do to get this to work?

Additional Info: My system is a Dell Optiplex GX 280. I have a 3 gig processor and 3 gig of ram. When I click the sound recorder it opens properly...I then record a couple of sentences and click the stop button. That's when the error box pops up telling "not enough memory to complete operation." Then I click OK and then the "X" to close the dialog box. I then get a box to save my file...I put in a file name "test." When I click on the test.wav file just recorded it plays back perfectly. I need to find out how to stop this error from occurring.

I have a program from Photodex.com ProShow Producer. It calls Windows Sound Recorder to make sound overlays on slides. When I try to use the record button in Producer it crashes and closes. I am sure the problem is the error that windows pops up that causes the program to crash.

Please Help.
Thank you,
Marvin

Try downloading and installing the latest drivers for your soundcard.

Thanks for the reply...This sound "card" is really not a card but it is built into the motherboard. I have no way of knowinf what drivers to get. I already downloaded the latest drivers from Windows for the sound recorder.

The sound recorder does not have drivers, it is a program. There are several programs out there that will help identify what hardware you have in your system. Do a Google search for a program called SIW, it will help identify what onboard sound chip you have. Report back what you have and we can help you find the right drivers.
