Hi, i have a Win 98SE HP Pavilion PC (667 MhZ, 64MB RAM, Aureal Sound card). today when i was playing the game "Age of Empires", all of sudden, there was a loud sound from my speakers and the system hung. the game was installed 3 years back and i am using it regularly without any prolems.. when i restarted the system, the error that showed was:
Error # 11; CODEC failure. Driver not loaded
the real intersting aspect is that: when i remove my speakers (Polk audio) and use other speakers, it works fine.
also, when i use my speakers with another system, my speakers work well.
i would like to hear ur comments on this, thanks in advance...
this is probably irrelevant, but just the other day i had problems with both of my age of empires2 demos. the splash screen would display and then the program would exit. age of empires1 worked fine. i dont know what is wrong, but if i run them from a dos window they work fine.
