sound problem : comes and goes
Posted on 2003-03-06
i have a problem with the sound on my pc. when i first bought my pc it worked fine but for some reason (and usually when i am online) it just cuts out. i could be viewing a site, listening to a cd or playing an online game when it stops working. then as i shut down my pc or restart i hear the 'exit windows' sound so it seems to work again. when i turn the pc back on everything is fine.
i am running xp. my hardware is: 1.2 Ghz duron, 256 ddr ram, ga-7vkml motherboard (which has ac97 codec sound on-board).
i have tried a clean install of xp and the problem still occurs. i have heard ac97 is pretty crappy so do you think that is the problem or could it be something else.
