Hi, I’m running Windows XP Professional SP3. I have an Intel 82801EB ICH5 - AC’97 Audio Controller [A-2/A-3] installed. At seemingly random times, sound will stop working, and won’t resume again until I log off. As soon as I receive the message that I’m being logged off, I hear the Windows sound. Because of this, I can only guess that some process I have running is somehow conflicting with my sound card. However, I can’t find any processes that should have this effect. I’ve noticed also that when my computer won’t play any sounds, iTunes won’t play any songs and the marker will stay at zero seconds (although iTunes doesn’t need to be running for the sound to stop).
Anyhow, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
