Losing Audio on Shutdown

  1. A few days ago i restarted my computer and when it started up again my audio has been messed up. Some things like backrounds in mp3s or like the windows start up .wav sound fine, but speach and alot of other sounds get VERY VERY quite and the quality gets really bad. I listen to internet readio and just to barely hear what they are saying i have to turn up my speaker sound to max, the player sound to max, and my headphone sound to max. other things like spells in WoW don't make any sound either.

    Sometimes if i reinstall my sound drivers it will start working again... until i reboot then I lose them all over again. Also system restore does nothing to help.

    I use a Creative SB audigy sound card, and i downloaded the latest drivers from there site.

    Please help me, if you need any more info just lemme kno and Thx!!

    Your card may suffering from slot creep. Take it out of the slot, clean the connector strip wioth a cloth soaked in gin (yeah, I know it's a waste but it is gentle!) and refit. If this does not cure it, your sound card my be on the way out.

    If you remove the Card and use the Onboard, does it do the same thing??
