My soundcard has stopped working after a couple of times. I have noticed that it is usually after windows or my firewall updates.
To resolve:
Right click on my computer and select manage.
You now have the computer management window open.
Beneath Services and Applications select services.
In the right pane, double click on Windows audio.
At the bottom service status should read Started.
If it says stopped, you found the problem click on start and enjoy!

No problem. This is a very annoying problem that took me a little while to figure out the first time it happened. I am convinced this occurs after updates as it has occurred on 2 separate occasions, and both times after my firewall and windows had just completed an update. So I am not sure if one or both of these occuring simultaneously is causing the problem. From surfing the web, it seems like a rather common problem.

Did you ever get your problem figured out? I'm going through the same thing but as of the time I came across this thread I think I'm a bit further along than you guys seem to be. I may be able to be of some help to you or vice versa.

HI,

Try System Restore

XP http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/setup/support/sysrestore.mspx
Vista http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/...

If that doesn't match, u'll have to re-install ur sound card.
Tell the brand and the model of ur computer (or of ur MB if ur computer is a no-brand one) and I probably will be able to give u a linK for free downloading the driver u need.

Both my sound device and networking device on Windows XP suddenly stopped working this weekend, and I have tried all types of ways, including using 'system restore point', updating drivers, adding windows components to no avail. However, I used this morning a 'live linux cd' (one of many available for linux distributions on http://distrowatch.com/) and under linux both the sound device and the networking device were working properly. Hence, the problem lies either with getting the drivers to start working again or with Windows. This is the first time this has happened to me in decades of using windows. The failure of the sound device and networking device occurred within one or two days of updating the latest Windows updates, March 12, 2009, on Microsoft's website. However, I can't be sure there is any connection.
