Assuming you are talking about an add on sound card and not an on-board one then start by removing the card from the motherboard and clean the contacts with a soft pencil eraser and blow out the slot with a can of compressed air, refit the card.

Download the latest sound driver for your card and version of windows and save it to the desktop.
Go into Control Panel and select Add/Remove programs, look for any software related to the sound card and uninstall it.
Go into Device Manager and locate the sound card, right click on it and select Uninstall.
Run through this routine and locate any/all sound drivers and delete them. Do not reboot, just close all the boxes to get back to the desktop.
Double click on the driver that you saved to your desktop to install it.

If the drivers still drop out then I would suspect the card is faulty.
