Intermittant Sound

'lo all,

What would you kind people suggest for a PC that has an annoying habit of losing its sound every once in a while? It also comes back on without reason too.. most infuriating..

It's not the speakers as they work fine elsewhere, and it's not the sound card as I swapped it with another one to check such things

What else should I try?

Is it all sounds, or just the CD-ROM?

All sounds, from the humble beep to the complex ditty...

Put a complex ditty on and start moving leads and things, inside and out. You may find the culprit reveals itself when it is touched.

No luck there.

Went for a re-install of the sound drivers (forgot to do that.. d'oh) all seems well now, but for how long...
