    Hi guys yet again, sick of the sight of my name, sorry.

    Yesterday and today, just out of the blue, I can't use paltalk. Something to do with the sound set up. I run windows 98. The messages I'm getting are:

    "the audio waveform devise can't record in the required format"

    then if I proceed, I get this message:

    "MMSYSTEM007 there is not enough memory available for this task. Quit one or more programs then try again."

    Which is interesting because I have 57% of my memory free. Everything else seems to be working fine and paltalk was until yesterday.

    Anyone got any suggestions as to what I can do?? Any help appreciated, as always.

    Do you mean "system resources 57% free"...if so that is pretty low...what do you have running in the background...you should have at least 70% IMHO.

    Hi Chum, thanks for that yeah, I just checked again and it is 70%. There is absolutely nothing running in the background. When I try paltalk now, I get a message saying:
    "MMSYSTEM004 already in use" nothing is in use, still getting the audio waveform device message too. I just can't work it out, although I have noticed that my mixer is missing, any bearing do you think? This is driving me crazy. lol.
