Sound stops working

Discussion in 'Windows Desktop Systems' started by Powerchordpunk, Jul 17, 2002.

  1. Every now and again, my sound stops working. In most cases, it is after a minor program crash or just after a program that uses sound closes. All I can do is reboot. Does anyone know why?

    Run diskchecker "dskchk", make sure you have the upto date sound drivers.

    "Minor" program crash? If it's all configured properly, there shouldn't be minor program crashes. I'm sure someone will be able to debug your fiasco.:)
     
  4. minor program crash as in gta2.

    GTA2 Update Patch
    Sound Drivers
    Windows Update
    Check speakers?
     
  6. I ran chkdsk. didn't come up with anything.
     
  7. gta2 update patch - what update patch. how would this cause the sound to stop working if other programs do it too.

    sound drivers - windows xp sound drivers

    windows update - nothing

    speakers - properly configured.
