I have came to these forums to see if I can find a fix to my problem.
I recently did an overhaul on my computer. My old one was custom made about 6 years ago, so I bought brand new everything.
Case: Zalman z11
SSD: Intel 330 120gb
Hard: 465G something (From earlier computer)
Mobo: Intel dz77gal-70k
Processor: i7 3770k
GPU: Asus 560 ti
PSU: Corsair 700GS
Cooler: Corsair H70 Series
Sound Card: Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Pro Series PCI Express Sound Card
So the problem that is occurring: Recently when I've been on my computer, I get a msg in the bottom right corner (the hub) from the 'Sound' hub. The notification comes up saying 'Your sound input is ready to use.' The notification has a picture of analog cables (The Red/white ones). When this happens my sound cuts out from my headphones, and my Sound hub crashes, as well as my Creative Sound Blaster program. If I restart the computer, the sound fixes itself, but it will happen again within a half an hour. If I don't restart the computer, it'll eventually just freeze and shut down. After it shuts down, it repeatedly tries to power up, and fails. I took a look inside my case and saw that when it attempts to power up, the 'CPU HOT' warning LED on the motherboard was lit up. To fix this, I got a Corsair H70 series water cooler installed, but the problem still persists.
I also found the sound input that it said it 'Ready to use' on the Sound page and disabled it completely, hoping that it would not re-activate, but it still does.
Any answers would be appreciated.
