Hey guys,

Just installed Lion, and now my sound card doesn't work.

I can see the icon in system preferences, and when i click it asks to 'quit and reopen' which i do, but then a message comes up with 'the device could not be found' message.

I see nothing in my sound settings, i even re-installed the driver but still no luck.

I also noticed my internet is not as smooth and keeps cutting out randomly, possible problem?
QUOTE Thanks

I'm "assuming" this must be some 3rd party sound card since you mention re-installing the driver. I'd suggest you check the manufacturer's site for whatever card it is.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

A new driver was needed from the manufacturers which supports lion, so problem solved. Internet still bugs out though.
