Default Sound Card Problems

ok, my sound card is a realtek Ac97 or somethign like that, anyways.. when i'm webcaming with a friend, and using a microphone at the same time, after about 10 minutes, all my sound will cut out. I can't hear anything, no music, no one talking. Nothing. Anyway I can fix this?

This a fairly common problem with the Realtek AC97. There is one solution to this problem and something you can try just to see if you get lucky. Try the latest drivers from your mobo manufacturer and/or Realtek, this has not worked very often to my knowledge. The only solution I have ever seen that works is to upgrade to a PCI sound card. Good Luck and let us know how it turns out.
