Sound Help

I can not get 10 minutes into any program before the sound cuts off. I can't get it back on until I reboot the PC. The computer used to freeze up all the time, but I tracked that down to the anti-virus sweep, now I just loose sound all the time. I've been through all the Persario help pages and it doesn't cover this particular problem anywhere. I updated the drivers. Checked the capatability. Nothing works. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Re:Sound Help. Seems that "freeze up" is what needs fixing.

But not enough information yet.

Let's try the usual items.

1. Use http://www.google.com and read http://www.doxdesk.com/parasite/ about these pests and what tools to use to get rid of them.

2. Remove the case cover to see if the freeze up is heat related. No one tells you to dust it out and that the fans must be running and not clogged.

i have had distortion probllems in the past and lost sound a couple of times and this is what i did to resolve issue; control panel, system, device manager tab, multifunction platform or adapter, click remove then go to add/remove software in control panel and let windows reinstall the multiplatform. sometimes you may see an exclamation mark next to the problem device in device manager but sometimes you wont. please post a reply. Jack.
