Windows 7: Audio Keeps Going Out, Especially in Mozilla

Audio Keeps Going Out, Especially in Mozilla

My audio device has become very unstable in the past few days, and I have no idea why. Sometimes I have no audio at all, and sometimes it works in Windows, but it is working less and less frequently in Mozilla/Firefox.



The screen shot below seems to suggest everything is fine.



Is there some kind of diagnostic tool that I can run to check the status of things? Or, is there some tool that I can download to help me manage the audio on my system? Again, when I check the audio settings, everything seems fine, but it is definitely not fine.


Thanks!

Hi ryguy7272

I understand that you keep loosing audio output.

Can you say any more about the problem: does it happen after when you power up, or mid-way through listening to something?

Had you tried unplugging your audio speakers and re-plugging back in? What happens?

Volume Mixer is quite a good diagnostic to use. It shows the different source volume outputs in real-time.

What sound card are you using?
