A peculiar audio issue

Hello friends. Need your help in solving a rather peculiar issue. I have a PC with Windows 7 64 bit as the primary and only OS. Lately a strange audio problem has come up. The sound goes off suddenly while gaming. The only solution then is to restart the PC for the audio to return. Am having a discrete audio card (Asus Xonar Essence STX). I have tried all the driver tricks (updating, uninstall-ing & reinstall-ing) to no avail. Do you have any idea what's going on here?

    Try again using just the onboard sound and see if the problem persists.

    Thank you for taking your time out and replying. I did try that. The results were the same. The problem got resolved though when i tried the 'Run as administrator' command. May be its an issue where the program is being denied full access to the audio device. Will try to find a work around for that. Thanks again.
