Default Re: How do I fix this clock error?

Welcome to the APAC! (Some of us still call it the DUC)

If you are using the Quartet as an audio device in Windows, don't. Go back into the Windows audio settings and change the active input and output device back to onboard audio. Someone else reported here that he had to actually disable all of the outputs and inputs from his interface in the Windows audio devices before his interface and Pro Tools got along nicely, but usually just putting Windows back on onboard audio fixes this.

If your PC has auto jack sensing and you can't choose other ins and outs, then use some dummy plugs plugged into the audio in and out jacks on the motherboard so that Windows has something else to default to instead of the Quartet. I had to use dummy plugs on a PC last year. I cut them off of some cheap old broken studio headphones that were hanging aroud just in case I needed spare parts.
