Question Sound Stops?

Hey guys,

Whenever I'm playing a game, the sound always cuts off in a time period of 30 secons to 30 minutes. By cuts off, I mean the sound suddenly stops, and the only way for me to get it back is to reset my PC. I'm running...

Windows XP Home Edition
Radeon 9800 PRO 256
3.0 GHz Processor
1024MB Ram
Realtek AC97 Audio

"Device ID" for my sound card is...
Manufacturer ID and Product ID (if needed) is...
65535. And the "type" is WDM (whatever that is x_x

Name of the driver is ALCXWDM.SYS and the version is 5.10.0000.5630.
I've tried reinstalling my sound card and updating it to the latest version, but nothing seems to work. And yeah, the sound is build into my motherboard...

Hope somoene can help me, thanks...

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that sometimes the sound comes back at completely random intervals, but if I'm playing Halo I can make it come back again by minimizing the game and then going back to it (but this also only lasts 30sec to 30min, most of the time, only a few seconds, though.).

Post cutting sound..

Did you build the PC yourself ? - Or is it storebought..?
What model Motherboard ?

The Onboard AC97 chip on Giga-byte boards are troublesome..
I have a NForce chipset..
I had clipping in my audio..Only untill I d/l and installed the true NVidia
(from NVidia ) drivers did it fix my problem...
Giga-byte AC97 drivers on thier website did not resolve my issues..NVidia did though..
So you have to keep looking..

The device Id is too troublesome.. You should split the case and find the ID tags on the mainboard..
But Dont void your warranty If its a storebought Pc..

The Manufacturer of the mainboard should have links to updated drivers..

Try the driverguide tool.. on the main page.. it may tell you the specs..

Last case senario.. Disable onboard thru the Bios and go Buy a new soundblaster or similar card at the store(s).....
Onboard audio does have its bad days, and conflicts..

I almost went off the limb before I got responce from Giga-byte....

Good luck
