    I recently had to purchase a brand new motherboard because my last one died on me and now I am having a strange problem. I can not seem to play any video games without the sound from the game turning off and pausing any music I happen to be listening to. I can turn back on the Music by skipping ahead in the song track but the game sound stays off until it resolves itself after a few minutes.


    I'm wondering if anyone out there has any Ideas.

    Oh! sorry but i can't help you as your direct X is updated and doesn't seem to create any problem. I have no idea about any other fault.

    Thanks anyways, I can add a bit more detail. When I load a game the sound will run for about 3 minutes then the computer goes silent.
