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.
