Strange delay in system sounds

    HP Pavilion a1330n running Windows XP. (any other info, just holler and I
    will provide it) Sound driver (guess that's what it is called, in the device
    manager under sound, video, and game controllers) is a Realtek AC '97
    codec.

    I have noticed over the past week or so that system sounds are delayed by a
    few seconds. Such as the recycle bin. When I empty it, the little "crumpling
    paper" sound is delayed after the action takes place. I have also noticed
    when doing things in OE, such as making blocked senders by right clicking on
    the message and choosing block sender in the drop down, that the "attention"
    or "are you sure" sound is delayed to the point that it happens after I have
    finished and closed OE completely.

    Does anyone here know what could be causing this and how I may be able to
    fix it?

    Thanks

    In the control panel will be two listings:
    one for sounds and audio devices and another for sound effects manager

    Open the sound effects manager and see if you have a delay set.
