Hi,

About the sound problem, try temporally disabling your antivirus software to see if problem goes away. It may be scanning the executable (the file that runs the app) and unsing up too many resources doing so. Let me know what you find out and we will go from there.

About the parallel device, do you have any devices attached to your parallel port? e.g. printer, external drive....

Check the "Device Manager" for any devices under a "Other Devices" type (if exists)
Right click "My Computer" select "Manage" to find "Device Manager"

Hi,

When the prompt to supply drivers appears during bootup, insert your HP Deskjet cd to see if it will find the drivers on it.

Hi Sylvain,
I put HP Deskjet CD and even Windows 2000 CD when prompted with no luck. Like I said, I can live with that as it does the job anyway.Went on HP website as well but no driver update was available. What's bugging me is the sound problem. If I use games with sounds, no problem. But when comes the time to listen to music, it becomes garbled every now and then and specially if I open an other application. Even at Windows startup it does that.
