Alright, my sound works just fine when I am on my computer normally, playing music etc.
This is where the problem develops, when playing games (DOD and BF2), after a period of time (let's say 5 minutes) my sound just cuts out.
It's definately not my speakers and I am aware that it is indeed my soundcard. I also can't even use a microphone with my card, it just doesn't pick it up.
Anyway this is my setup:
Powercolor 9600XT 128mb Graphics Card
80GB Hard drive
Asus Mainboard - P4P800 Deluxe
Intel CPU P4 3.0 GM Prescott - 1MB Cache, 800FSB
Networkd Card etc....
My comp isn't too old, got it in September, 2004.
Basically looking at that am I correct saying that I have onboard sound?
So, i'm looking for a card good enough to not cut out when my sound options are on high in games and can take a microphone.
Not looking at spending too much, but would this be alright;
Also I have logitech Z-640 Speakers would they be alright with that soundcard?
If you haven't realised already, I'm not that good at the hardware side of computers but I really do need your advice.
If I do purchase a new sound card, would the on-board one be removed or would the new card just slot in and that's it?
