Intermitten issue of no sound while playing NSF: MW
I recetly upgraded my system to the following config:
Mercury 945GCM motherboard with integrated 6 channel IDT Audio [MS 888111 needed and installed] Intel Dual Core 2 Ghz 2 GB DDR II running in dual channel nVidia Geforce 9400 GT 512 MB PCIe graphic card
The issue is while playing NFS: Most Wanted
The sound disappears and comes back intermittently.
Troubleshooting I've tried till now:
Reinstalled the drivers from the net. Unchecked 'Automatic jack monitoring' in IDT control panel.
This happened atleast 5-6 times during one race which lasts approx 3-4 mins max. So you can easily imagine the amount of frustration!
The strangest part is the sound does not disappear while I'm playing videos or audio in windows usinf VLC or any other software. Once, when the sound disppeared I promptly exited NFS and checked in windows. The sound was not there! I checked in settings, unplugged and replugged my speakers, checked the headphones, but no sound. I've checked the back and front panel both and the issue is only with the back panel. Also, sound came back when I hit my computer cabinet lightly. But disappeared again! Is this a driver issue or a h/w issue? If its H/W why does the sound NOT disappear while I'm watching a movie or playing music?
Any help will be really appreciated. I'm almost ready to chuck this motherboard out of my window and get a ASUS G31

Is there perhaps an indication that your CPU is throttling back due to overheating? That might explain the sound (BIOS and chipset-generated.) Try checking your temperatures and system event logs.
It could be that your video drivers are really wacky somehow, but loose heatsinks or bad airflow sound likelier. (Of course you'd reinstall the heatsink and paste and correct the airflow to bring cool air in and exhaust it once it passed heatsinks.) Oh...and you could probably stand to have more DDR2.
windows XP and above version of operatin system do not require audio cable connection from mother board to cd rom drive, check ur sound driver
Follow the instruction on the motherboards manual and use the driver cd provided with the motherboard for the proper sound driver.
no ther is no any driver problem
1 there is only the configuration problem
2 you motherboard not supporting dual port sound output.
every mobo (motherboard ) has one sound output port one mic in port,and one line in port.one is already config on sound out put but you have to config another mic in port or line in port as sound output port it config by the sound utility install by the driver like (realtek hd audio manager ) most probebly 4.1 is run on hd audio supported mobo.like 945,965 intel chipsets.
