sorry if this should be posted in the sound card section, but i thought it would be better posting it here, as this is an onboard sound problem and i dont have a seprate sound card.

ok so basically the problem is, just sometimes and its getting more frequent and annoying now, the sound cust out.
its normally say for example, when im watchin a youtube video.
what happens is, the video will play for the first 2 secs (0.02) then it freeses.
sometimes the video continue with no sound, and sometimes the video just stops, even though the video has been fully buffered.
what annoys me even more is, when this happens, all my pc sound is lost, so i cant listen to anything on windows media player or anything of that sort.
before the problem used to last between 5-10 minutes and after a while the sound would start playing again, but recently the sound has cut out for soo long that im left with no choice but to restart my pc which i hate doing everytime.
i tried updating the REALTEK AC97 drivers but that has not helped.
i dont know what to do really?

I've just started to have the same problem. Did you find a solution? My sound started to randomly go out and when it goes out, rebooting is the only way to bring it back, but it doesn't last long. I'm also using XP.
