Hi, This error message is more likely to occur after you use the Add New Hardware tool in Control Panel.

This can happen if the "drivers=mmsystem.dll" line is missing from the boot section of the System.ini file.

To resolve this problem, follow these steps:

1 Use any text editor (such as Notepad) to edit the System.ini

file.

2 Add the following line to the boot section of the file:

drivers=mmsystem.dll

3 Save and then close the System.ini file.

4 Restart your computer.

Good luck and hope this resolves your problem if not, please resubmit

your question!
