Hello All! I have searched the forums, & saw many audio related topics/issues, but none quite like I am having, so here goes!

This problem has plagued me for probably over a year. Mobo is Abit KV7V. About a year after building this system, this started occuring. I have no sound of any kind - no wave, mp3, even system sounds; it will work sometimes, & sometimes not. I have tried 2 different sets of speakers, they are fine. I have tried switching back & forth between the onboard sound & the pci sound card, makes no difference.

I will have sound upon booting, but aftere a couple of hours, it goes away. After I reboot, it will return only to leave again in a couple of hrs. This is a fresh install of Win XP, about a week old. Onboard sound is disabled in BIOS.

Previously I was thinking that my son's games were "breaking" it, but now after reformat, they are not installed, so that can't be the problem. Everything looks ok in dev. manager, don't know where else to look.

No spyware/virus/etc.

Any suggestions?

Re-enable your onboard sound in your BIOS.

Also, take out your installed sound card and try it that way. If the problem goes away, plug it back in and see if it happens again. If it does happen again, then the problem is with the installed sound card.

If the problem still happens without any other sound card installed, then the problem could most likely be your motherboard.

Have done that in the past - still had the same prob. I am thinking the mobo as well...

would running dxdiag at the time of the problem offer up any clues? are there any logs I can view, diagnostics to run that would help sort this problem out?
