Help Diagnosing/Fixing Sound Problem

By evilwebster ·
I am running Windows NT 4.0 Workstation With Service Pack 6a installed. As the computers around me are either the same, or NT Server, I am forced to run my Video Games, And MP3 Music, on a system that wasn't designed with either in mind. Now, every so often (i have the games, and Mp3's running fine) the sound cuts off. (i.e in the middle of a game, or a song, for no apparrent reason) I then have to reboot, and sometimes that doesn't even get the sound back. Expirienceing this problem with Crystal Ware Windows Audio Drivers Release 4.05.2600 -- Can Anyone help?

Help Diagnosing/Fixing Sound Problem

Look for IRQ/Resource conflicts / rebboting should resolve that for a time again. How much memory do you have in this system?

It may be that the sound card (or system board if sound is embedded) is flaking out when it gets hot. In which case,another sound card should resolve the problem.
