Hi there.I wonder if anyone can shed some light on a recurring problem I have with Windows 98.Let me put you in the picture.I am an avid Airband listener,and I use a Toshiba Tecra 520 CDT running W98 for one specific operation.I monitor a thing called ACARS which relies on a signal from a VHF radio being decoded by the Acars program,which is on a disc.The laptop itself is NOT connected to the Internet at any time.OK?
Now the problem is this.More and more often now I am getting the message 'All 20 soundbuffers on card 0 are full.You should reduce your decoder passes'.The program then stops decoding for up to 20 minutes, sometimes even longer,and then carries on until the next time the message appears.
Can anyone shed any light on this annoying nuisance?.Thanx guys.

How much memory does the system have? If the card is "borrowing" the main memory you just may not have enough.

Hi Tyger.Thanx for the reply.In answer to your question,there is 96MB of RAM but the laptop is not used for anything except the ACARS program.In fact it has now ceased to decode anything at all now,as the aforementioned message now appears immediately after loading.Any help?
