Hey, well when i turn my computer on i sometimes have sound (rarely) but usualy, when i turn my computer on, and play a song, or game i have no sound. I have tried the windows trouble shooter... and such.. and eventualy my sound worked, by going into System> Device Manager>Hardware and then going into and disabling the sound device and then reanabling it... now hes the wierd part.. sometimes it works... and sometimes when i disable/enable it tells me i need to restart my PC for changes to take effect.. now when it does this it does not make the sound work.. but the sound works when it doesnt say i need to restart and just disables the device. Anyone have even the slightest idea? maybe i need to reinstall drivers? but im not sure as sometimes it works and sometimes it doesnt. :whistling:

If you can identify your sound device (which should be identifiable in Device Manager when it's drivers are loaded), it may pay you to visit the manufacturer's website for a newer driver than the one you have.
