    Im running windows xp professional on an ntfs partition. I have a sound blaster live platninum and geforce 2 mx 400. My cpu is a amd duron 900.
    When i run windows xp I have problems with my sound studdering, such as when I first login to windows or when a get an error chime, etc....
    The only modification I have done to my computer recently is I installed caldera open linux workstation 3.11 on its own physical partition, which i made using partition magic 7
    I do not think that this would affect the windows partition at all as the linux kernal lacks support for writing to an ntfs volume but i wanted to make sure.
    also if anyone knows what the cause of this problem can be, could u please help. Thank you

    HI,

    yep u r right linux cannot write to the ntfs partiton , not only that but winxp cannot detect the linnux partiton , it is just detected as a healthy unknoen partiton

    your problem might be because of corrupted sound drivers, try downloading the latest drivers from drivers.com
