Hello, for the past few months I've been having an odd problem with my Gen Five Dell XPS. Ever since I got a new Graphics card, (a GT 220) I used to have a Ninvida GT 6800, but after a while I got this odd problem. When I am in a video game, (anyone really I've had this problem pop up on just about Everything) the sound will cut, and then bug out replaying the last played sound, while there an odd noise that accompanies it (it’s kind of random as to the other noise) but it cause the entire PC will freeze up I end up having to force restart windows. No BODS, no error message when it gets back to my desktop, Nothing. I've asked everyone I know, and I've gotten many answers for the problem, ranging from it being the Mobo, to the sound card, everything and anything. I’d REALLY appreciate any help you can give me :S

Thank you Very much!
Sephy

I suggest you look at the event logs. On win xp they are in start, control panel, administration tools, event viewer. There is a system and application log to look at. Any errors near the time it failed may be relevant. The help and support menu can help you find it for vista or win7.

Please have a look and post any errors you found, if there were any.

Hi,
I would start by upgrading your graphic and sound drivers.

32bit XP drivers are here and here.
