Default Sound just up and dies

Well for the life of me ever since I got my F4tality sound card, my sound just randomly shuts down whenever I'm playing games or if my computer sits idle for long enough of a time, I really don't know what the problem is, if anyone can shed some light on how I can get this solved would be great! :happy:

Did you install the sound drivers?


My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.

Yes I installed the drivers from the disc and updated them. It's completely random when it goes off, there are times I can play games for hours and nothing but then sometimes not but 5-10 minutes into playing them wham sound is gone and I am left with a ringing in my speakers.

About when the computer sits idle while I sleep I have no idea I wake up and log in then do something that makes a noise and what do you know, no sound, very annoying having to reset my pc so much.
