Question My sound just disappears after a short period??

I had a used motherboard put in with a C Media AC97 Audio Device. The board is a K7SOM+ 7.5A made by ECS.

My computer seems to lose it's sound after it's on awhile, especially when it's not in use. The only way to get sound back is to reboot.

Any ideas? I checked the settings for the audio device, and in power management. I see nothing that would cause this.

I have the same audio device. I get the same thing. After being booted up for 1 hour, it just says "Windows cant find audio devices. Please reinstall, bla bla..."

Are you using any kind of pirated software?

That doesnt really matter with sound drivers.

C-Media tends to make horrible sound products. I suggest installing the C-Media driver update from MS update.
