Been having trouble for some time with audio on my pc. Don't know if this is specifically a card issue, but abrupt jumps in sound (explosions, loud voices, etc.) kills my sound on speakers and my headset sometimes for a second or until I'm forced to restart. The sound doesn't have to be relatively to loud to kill it either.
didn't know where to post this, didn't find a category for audio
