I recently got a Creative Recon3d PCIe. It's not working. When I start my computer, my sound works for 1 to 20 minutes. Then, the sound will suddenly stop. When the sound craps out, the youtube video I am watching will start to stutter (and of course I can not hear anything). Or if I was using winamp, then winamp cannot play songs.
Previously, I was using on board sound and had no problems.
I have the latest drivers from Creative. Creative's customer service has been no help
The last thing I should say is that this is the second card that's been giving me these problems. I RMA'd the first one because I thought the card was defective, but apparently it wasn't.

Don't know how to solve your problem. What i will say is that the majority of experienced soundcard members including myself never recommend Creative cards. You have bigger issues with your cpu and mobo- obviously a typo(non-compatible)
