ok, ok, ok - found this and realized i may not have "properly" disabled the DEP - would one of you staffers read thru this and assure me it's safe... and maybe tell me what negative results i need to know about?

Method 2: Turn off the DEP feature in Windows XP SP2
If you need the functionality of the incompatible driver, you can turn off the DEP feature. To do this, follow these steps:1. Restart your computer.
2. During the restart process, press F8.

Note On a computer that is configured to start multiple operating systems, press F8 when the Startup menu appears.
3. Use the arrow keys to select a Safe Mode option, and then press ENTER.
4. Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.
5. At the command prompt, type the following, and then press ENTER:
bootcfg /raw “/noexecute=alwaysoff /fastdetect” /id 1
Note If you have multiple start entries or start options, you may have to manually modify the Boot.ini file for your computer. To do this, follow these steps:a. Click Start, click Run, type sysdm.cpl, and then click OK.
b. On the Advanced tab, under Startup and Recovery, click Settings.
c. In the Startup and Recovery dialog box, click Edit.
d. Change the /noexecute option to the following:
/noexecute=alwaysoff
e. On the File menu, click Save, and then click Exit.
f. Click OK two times.

6. Restart your computer.


i've been told by a local "techie" that i have an area of my RAM that has been "claimed" perminately by a program or driver... he says i'm having trouble because some other driver or prog is trying to "claim" that same spot. does that sound right?

it didn't sound right to me, because, well, it's not just teamspeak that's doing it. when i try to open ventrilo (same type of program, just different service provider) the same thing happens. - i just though it odd that 2 different progs would render the same results.

i shall wait... oh, and thanks :tazz:

well if there were an actual driver conflict...maybe....the instructions you've posted are really refering to a driver that you don't have so those wont work....have we tried uninstalling ts and see if ventrillo works by itself? then reinstall ts and uninstall ventrillo...same thing

situation resolved... here's how:

uninstall BOTH TS and vent. install sound card. remove realtek. install TS and vent.

now it works.

sheesh... that was stressful.

i got a program from a buddy called everest... ever hear of it... is it used for anything besides just an easier way to look at your system?
