    Hi i have had this problem for a while now and it is very annoying so any help and ideas are much appreciated !

    The problem is that the sound on my computer will randomly dissapear (usually when running a game or similar process) but it does happen occasionaly when nothing special is happening. Sometimes the sound will return and go again randomly for a while but it always stops coming back after a while and i have to log off the computer nd back on again for the sound to return, As you can imagine this is not ideal !! so any advice is welcome....
    (my sound drivers are up to date)

    thanks alot

    Peter

    Check the cables from your sound card to your speakers first. check oyur version of DirectX also if this only occurs in games and make sure the drivers are all DX approved. Sound card may just be defective.

    run direct x diagnostic. This may show up any errors with the registry and or drivers installed for your sound card.

    Sometimes, the registry can cause sound loss, if it gets too large where there are redundent enteries.
