  1. Ok, I'm a non-tech newbie with a problem. I have a Dell XPS running XP SP-2. I have installed Nuance's Dragon Naturally Speaking v9.0, which requires use of a headset. Whenever I attempt to use Dragon with an audio input device, my system crashes. The RealTek HD audio is identified as the problem. What must I do to get my RealTek system working so that I can use a headset for audio input/output?

    Update XP to SP3, and while your are at it, install any Hardware updates available in Windows Update, after installing SP3
