When you bought the computer and the sound on board, came with it, so did a disk that contained the sound software and driver for the motherboard. You need to reinstall both using that motherboard disk.     If you did not receive the disk, then you need to contact them for it.  Your other ooption is to buy a PCI soundcard, like Soundblaster that wil come with everything you need.

Does rebooting help fix pc game issues

The game usually comes with a minimum spec for the computer. The game may require better graphics or more memory. What is the game? What is the computer? Are you saying the game runs fine in WinXP/Win7 but not win 8?
Rebooting will only help fix an issue if the computer has been bogged down by a program (or programs) that are misbehaving. If you have a game that requires all your PC to run, you can try quitting everything that runs in the background.
Most games have options you can also tweak. Try selecting a lower screen size, lower graphic details,etc ..

Computer reboots itself after it has already rebooted itself and comes back to reboot screen

Sounds like a nasty virus. The only way to fix that would be to do a totatl reinstall of the operating system. When you do that though everything on the computer will be erased unless you hook the hard drive up to another computer and extract whatever you want to save.

Good luck!!

I just get a blank screen with no sound or anything when i turn it on

I once had this issue, the solution was hard to find(five hours), but fairly simple. (This works for HDMI cable set up, but I'm not sure concerning AV)
Note: Yes, the solution sounds ridiculous, but for this issue, it works.

1. Unhook your PS3 from the current TV/Computer screen you have it hooked up to.

2. Hook it up to a different TV/Computer screen that you have or a friend may have.

3. Power on the PS3 and it should have a screen and everything and work just fine.

4. Hook it back to your original TV/Computer screen and power on the PS3 and it should work fine there again aswell.

I've been having an odd issue with my speakers on my computer. After some perfectly fine use, playing music, games, etc, the left speaker suddenly stops putting out sound. Plugging in my ipod, both...

Intermittent problems are always the hardest to diagnose but I would start by going to the device manager and deleting the sound drivers. Then a reboot and as your machine restarts it will reinstall the soundcard drivers and if the game has corrupted the drivers that should your your problem. Should it continue you will need to find updated drivers for Windows 7.

Get script error message whenever you move the mouse

Is it an older game? Just for fun you could try Windows 98 compatibility mode. Right click whatever icon you use to launch the game, click the Compatibility tab up top. Then click the checkbox "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" try Windows 98. Secondly, you should uninstall the game, reboot, reinstall the game.

You should restore your computer to a date when everything was working fine.

To do the same Click start>All Programs>Accessories>system Tools>System Restore

Select restore my computer to an earlier date> Click Next

Select a date when it was working fine and restore it.

Note: All software changes made after the selected date will be undone as well. For Ex. If you installed a new software or game,,,

I am sure this will work for you.

Please rate the solution.

All the best

Computer reboots after about 2-5 mins, OR hangs on high 3D graphics games

Sounds like an overheating problem. The increased demands on the video card create a lot of heat that is most likely not being dissipated properly. Two suggestions - does the graphics card have a dedicated fan? I am assuming it does, and it likely runs at one speed all of the time. Ensure that the fan is actually spinning when the computer is powered up. Another possibility is to add a whole case fan to push heat out of the computer case (most computers do not come with them but usually have the vent and mounting holes in the back to install one, and a connector on the Motherboard to plug it in - I added one to one of mine that was overheating and it is easy and relatively cheap). Also make sure the computer has free flow of fresh air around it. I have seen many cases where the computer case was put in a computer desk where the case is closed up behind a swinging door with one little vent hole. These do not provide sufficient air flow and computers overheat often. Good computers will shut down before damage, but not all. Good luck!
