Hello from the Isles of Scilly!
I have a Dell Latitude running XP that for some reason has started going TaaDaa! (I think thats how you spell it!) every 20/25 minutes. I had a support person look at it but she couldn't identify the problem.
Any ideas?
Thanks!

Try and uninstall your audio driver and reboot hit the windows key and pause at the same time then select hardware then device manager then scroll down and find your audio driver right click it uninstall it then reboot.

EDIT: How is your pc running other than the current issue??

Have you tried scanning your pc with your antivirus and malwarebytes and superantispyware? Make sure to update them.
