Hey

I have a problem with my sound.when i have the latest winamp playing
mp3's, while playing a game(such as swat 4 or counterstrike source)
between 5-15 minutes into the game all of my sound cuts out. completly.
hitting play in winamp does nothing, the progress bar (of the songs
duration) doesnt move, its as if im hitting pause. Only a pc reset
fixes the problem.
i've tried using other media players, but its teh same. I have also
turned off audio hardware accelleration to no avail.
the audio device is c-media AC97.

Thanks for any suggestions!

Hello cewing10 and welcome to TSG!

First thing i'd do would be to update the drivers via the Asrock website and if that didn't work just buy another sound card. Also look in the application and system logs for any warnings or errors.

The AC-97 indicates on-board sound.

I would be trying a PCI sound card as well.

ok so there isnt any settings i can change? it seems random, just cutting out...my guess is the sound is being overleaded with winamp and game audio going through it...
logs were all clean
reccommend a cheap 5.1 sound card?
thanks for your replies guys
