hi I'm having a strange problem now: sometimes, when I'm gaming, the sound suddenly disappears, and outside of the game, I can't even open music / other sound files anymore because it says I haven't got a soundcard installed... to get my sound back, I have to reboot my computer... now... does anyone know what might be causing this or how to solve this?

does it slowly sizzle out? or does it just stop?
it just stops... suddenly...
Update drivers & software?
but why did I not have such a problem for over 2 years?
Do you have an external soundcard?
nope, actually it's not even a card, it's on-board.
Onboard sound cards are usually cheap and aren't expected to last long just to hold you over till you get an expasion card. so you solution would be a new sound card Im surprised it lasted 2 years

Thats a whole lot of crap right there. Arnt expected to last as long? ROFL. Where on earh do you get this from?
it's a Creative card or sumthin, so i guess it's meant to last long enough.
