  1. I was playing WoW one day and the sound cut. I checked my sound card's USB and speaker connections, and all were connections were secure. So i go to the volume control and make sure i didn't accidently mute anything with my keyboard. All were unmuted, so I went to the Device manager. The sound card wasn't there, and Ventrilo never picked up the card either. I restarted the computer, and it worked from then on, but what im stumped at is why it just disappeared like that. Can you guys possibly help me answer my question?

    Probably a sound driver glitch. If this is just a one off, I wouldn`t worry too much. If it keeps happening, then have a look for any updated sound drivers.

    Regards Howard :)
