    Hi everyone!
    My desktop produces no sound at all. I've updated the driver "Realtek AC'97" with the software "Driver Genius Pro." What happens is I will get sound for a few hours then nothing at all, the sound is cut off. Before it was updated it would give me the same problems. I've check Device Manager and it says that the device is working. The only way it works again if I restart my computer but its very annoying when it happens. Also I got to check the sounds in "Sounds and Audio Devices Properties" and I click to play one of the sounds I just a dialog box saying "Windows can not play this file it maybe damaged or may use an unrecognized compression format. install an Audio Compression in Add/Remove Programs." My computer is Windows XP Home SP3. Any ideas?
    Thank-you all for your help :D
