    Hey, I have a problem that has been annoying me for the past week.

    Sometimes when I am on my desktop, my sound will randomly crash. I will need to right click my sound, and disable then enable my Speakers/Headset, and it will begin working again. This gets annoying since it can happen three times in a matter of minutes, or more. It also makes me have to restart the games I am playing to get the sound back. I have even wipe cleaned my computer to see if it was a virus causing it, though it still occurs(Doesn't matter though, I was wanting to wipe clean my comp, and this was a good reason too :D)

    I am running Win7 64 bit, and I am using VIA High Definition Audio Drivers(Well, thats what it says in Device Manager). I recently tried downloading Realtek drivers, though that didn't solve my problem. I have right clicked the VIA High Definition Audio Device in Device Manager, and clicked Update Driver, though it says they are up to date.

    My motherboard is a P5KPL-CM.

    Any suggestions? Thanks.
