    Unhappy Sound Card not working on OS X Lion
    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?

    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.
