Audio just *quits" from time to time

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Forgotten Boy, Sep 4, 2003.

  1. I'm running Windows 98 on a 1Ghz Pentium system using
    a SiS PC266 socket A motherboard. And what's been
    happening lately is that the audio would just stop, to
    where I wouldn't be able to hear any of my mp3's,
    Windows tones, etc. I would then shut the PC off for
    about 5 minutes, turn it back on again, and everything
    would be fine. This has happened twice in the past 2 weeks.

    Here's my question: would I need to reinstall the
    audio driver to keep this from happening? It's a SiS
    7018 audio driver, which of course is integrated into
    the mo'board.

    I've tried reinstalling drivers for similar problem... same result. I find
    it unlikely that it would be a driver issue because if it's a problem, it
    wouldn't be intermittent. You might want to check to make sure that it's not
    sharing resouces with another device.

    I would ditch the onboard sound (disable it) and pick up a cheap
    replacement. Judging you have a 1 GHZ system, any $15.00+ sound card would
    be superior to it.
