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?

Do you have an external soundcard?

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
