BTW I think the problem may be viris related but am not posative I've had a few in the past. I am pretty convinced it is somthing loading with the platform itself as I have tried the following:
Watching task mgr processes run to try and see CPU activity during the notification...even shutting down some I thought might have been causing this...no luck
I also tried using msconfig to eliminate loading un-necessary programs using diagnostic Startup mode and even eliminating services after startup until computer shut down due to shutting down too much. Still never eliminating the notification at any time ever.
I tried to utilize the event viewer but it doesn't update at the time of the notification, please note I can see information and error messages but if I clear it to get new alerts nothing happens there is no new info. Therefore I really can't determine which event caused the notification, its like an automatic endless loop thing that keeps triggering every minute or so. I manually shut off everything I can including the network adaptors etc..no luck this notification is persistant as long as windows is loaded you will hear the sound. I could disable it easily I believe- havn't actually tried yet but I just might to see if I can temporarily might tell me more??, but I'd prefer to ultimatly find the cause and fix it right if possible.
I even tried the event viewer that another post here had a link to and it also didn't update with new info at time of notification, so I am really at a loss as to how to proceed??? Running low on options I guess....I'm pretty desperate
BTW I had Norton Systemworks 2003 before the problem, It was a mess to un-install and I now am using Mcafee internet security suite from ATT service, it is current but doesn't seem to find the issue. please note I did encounter some viris activity around the same time I started getting this issue but I can't say for sure it has been a few years since the problem happened and I wasn't using the computer much since then. I want to try and salvage the system as it has alot of software I cant replace easily.
Any help would be greatly appreciated from a software Guru ;)
Sorry this post is so long I just wanted to give necessary info and Bkground
System is ASUS A7N8X N-force, Windows XP Pro, 1 gig dual channel ram, dual NIC, Barton 2500, Gainward Goldensample V-card Dual Monitor, Maxtor EIDE Not that it matters but I built the comp for EDA development (laying out schematics and P.C.B.'s) back a few years ago and it has worked well until this issue.
P.S. I attached a text file from (Services local) and can later send Event viewer or other info if it would help anyone to see my pblm.
Many thanks for any advice or help out here, I'm out of clues again......
