IDT Audio System Tray Application has
Encountered a problem and needs to close.
There are plenty of forums out there talking about this same topic. Simply search for it on Google and you'll be sure to see messages from desperate computer users who have recently restored their system and now run into the "IDT Audio System Tray Application Encountered a problem and needs to close" message upon boot up.
The sound works perfectly, but the error is still there. The only way to get rid of the error seems to be when you disable the audio driver. If you watch closely, you'll notice an icon in the task bar that pops in and out. That little icon is the problem. Thankfully there is a quick fix for this error problem.
You might have uninstalled your audio driver. If so, the Sigmatel Audio driver can be downloaded from Dell Drivers & Downloads. Be sure and select the correct Dell Dimension PC Model and Opperating System (the link is for Dell Dimension 5100).
Once the driver is installed and working, restart your computer to make sure that the audio continues to work (note the start up and shut down sounds). If the annoying error message "IDT Audio System Tray Application Encountered a problem and needs to close" keeps popping up, then follow these simple steps to get rid of it.
After that, simply restart your computer and the error message should stop completely.
Although this method works for most users, there are other options available if the problem/error messages continue. Such as:
