    wierd windows 8 sound issue


    Hallo there.

    I upgraded to windows 8 some weeks ago, as i got it trough dreamspark.

    I got this huge problem, on both my stationary, and my laptop

    sound keeps dissapearing for 4-5 secs every 2-4 mins. And it's really annoying.

    I got 2 soundcards on my stationary, and ive tryed using both of em as primary devices.

    One of em is integrated on the mainboard, and the other one is an external steinberg c1.

    On the laptop the card is integrated.

    Anyone had this issue before?
