You probably gave these details in your other post, but either link to
that, or give them again:

  1. You’ve already said you’re running 10.3. 32 or 64-bit?

  2. Which sound card is it?

  3. Which desktop environment (KDE, Gnome, etc.)?

That’ll be a start.

Just thought someone might have a quick idea right away.

card quite a while back but don’t remember which one; it didn’t change

As well as answers to the questions requested by smpoole7, the next time
your sound system fails, have a look at system messages (if any) with:

dmesg | tail

Does the mixer die when you lose sound?

If you can, please supply more info concerning desktop sound system
being used? Some users have has serious problems with PulseAudio for
