On my computer, I lose sound after about 30 minutes of run time. The speakers work fine, and I get sound until the 30 minute (or so) barrier, and then it stops. Also, I have installed the latest drivers from the manufacturer, no change. Any ideas?

Replying to your own thread is the worst thing you can do on this forum, since we look for 0 reply threads when come online. By replying to your own thread, you greatly reduce the chance someone will pick up your thread, because we think someone else is already helping you.

start > run, type
eventvwr.msc
<enter>

Right click application and choose CLEAR ALL EVENTS, do not save the log
Right click system and choose CLEAR ALL EVENTS, do not save the log

Reboot. Work with computer until error recurs. reboot

start > run, type
eventvwr.msc
<enter>

Look under systems and applications for items with red Xs that happened at the SAME time as your problem...list them here.

Also,

download Everest Home

unzip it, install it, and then save a report and ATTACH it to your next post

The error log showed no errors at the time the sound died. Attached is my Everest report.

Yes, no modem, onboard LAN to my cable, and yes, drivers from Foxconn, as it is onboard sound too.

The driver you linked me to would not install; disabling sound acceleration did no good.
