I seem to continuously have a problem with my volume as it keeps shutting off on me after awhile. I have to reboot to get it back in working order. I have done a log in hijackthis and nothing seems out of the ordinary. I've also been on this topic back and forth from moderator to moderator and nothing seems to be working. Please let me know what else I can try to get my volume back without rebooting.

Thanks in advance.

Try going to the Device Manager and see if there is a problem with the Audio codec.

Start> right click on My computer> Manage> Device Manager. Go down the list till you find Sound, video and game controllers, click on th + in the box beside it to extend the tree, and see if there are any errors showing there.

Have a look in the Event Viewer for any errors at the time the sound drops out.

To open the Event Viewer go to Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Event Viewer. Alternately, go to Start > Run and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter.

Check in all the categories.

If you find an error that occurred at the time right-click on it and select properties. Copy the information in the window and post it back here. This will help us diagnose your problem.

How To Use the Event Viewer
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

—George Bernard Shaw

Oddly enough...I did a system restore and it seems I've gotten my volume back. Thanks for your assistance and you can close this topic now.


Thanks again.

Glad that you got it working...Sometimes system restore does what it is supposed to do...Other times it just DOESN'T...The only drawback is that you may lose some updates and other things...but other than that... :thumbsup:
Does this look like an OldGrumpyBastard or what?
