Hi,
I am having some problems with my computer. The sound keeps cutting out. This happens often if I am listening to music and running a game or other program, but recently when I have been watching films in WMP it has cut out as well. The sound is cut out completely not just in WMP though.

Can anyone help??

Thanks Gareth

Re-install the soundcard drivers or look for updated drivers

If no change, you can go to add / remove, uninstall media player which will roll back to the previous version, see how this plays, and then re-install media player

just to let you know. i have installed the updates but it will be hard to tell if they have worked or not, because the effect is irregular. so hopefully i will not need to ask for more advise, but thanks guys

Thank You for the update

You could look at using other players to check it as well

Winamp has a large number of radio stations if you click file, radio stations then scroll down to click shoutcast radio, set the speed of your connection then look for the different types of stations

If you install Winamp, which isn't essential, then you would have another player to check the sound problem. If it happens with more than one player then you can concentrate on the audio drivers etc
