Windows 7: Delayed system sounds

01 Apr 2009   #1

Win7 Build 7022
Delayed system sounds

Currently running 7022 (runs fine for me so I'm not upgrading until RC1) and among the annoying little quirks is the fact that all of my system sounds (alerts, etc) appear to be delayed. I hear them a full second or two after the action that triggers them.

Anyone else having this problem? Is there a fix in a later build?

I'm on a Dell Latitude D830 with a SigmaTel HD audio chipset.

Hi Mark, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I have not experienced this in the 7000, 7048, 7057, or 7068 builds. You might try one of them instead to see if it may work better for you.

Hope you get it sorted,
