Also, when the sound stops, look near the system clock is there a speaker icon with a red ex?
I did not see a red X at all on the speaker icon in the system tray. I will update when this problem happens again. It didn't happen when I booted up, this morning. But I did check all of my sounds in the mixer and nothing had been muted.
Hmm, now that I think about it, this could have
happened after a Windows update, but I'm not 100% sure. In this morning's bootup, I wasn't told my computer was installing updates, but from a previous cold boot where the problem did occur, I was finishing an update.
