Question about Computers & Internet
I intermittently lose all sound on my computer. When it cuts out, it may stay off for a day, and then suddenly begin again. Running XP with Sound Blaster Audigy 4. Sound card diagnostic reports everything is OK. Have tried two sets of speakers with same result. Is there a way to establish whether this is a hardware (sound card) problem or a software conflict? I am ready to reformat my hard drive and start from scratch, but if it's hardware, it would be a waste of time. Any help would be most appreciated. Thank you.
I would advise trying the sound card in a different computer. it may not be possible for you, but maybe you have a friend that will let you try it on their computer. also, can you make the problem come and go by wiggling the connection? on my computer i have to have the wire just right or i lose the left speaker. i think you can solve this without having to reformat. what about headphones? do they work when plugged into the headphone jack?
