Curly one!!!
In the last week for some unknown reason my sound has been playing up. After playing any game for 15mins or so the sound either distorts or stops working. If I exit the game I have scratchy or no sound for all programs. A reboot fixes the problem and away I go again. I have tried every driver I can think of, even reinstalled the chipset drivers but no luck. Any suggestions?

Usually a voltage problem on the card
You could try blowing out all dust internally and check the connections.

Thanks,

But still a sound card built into your motherboard.

I'd still go for the blow all the dust out - it'll probably fix it. (Heat and voltage issue)

You might have a point. I've just installed a new video card which is double slot and runs hotter than my last card.

Due to your Video Card (That you stated you just mounted)

You may be causing extra heat on your motherboard

Therefore you may need to install another internal fan, or somehow cool down the box.
