Recycle the sound device. If there are any Windows corruptions this will fix it.
Go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the IDT sound entry and then LEFT click "Uninstall". DO NOT uninstall the driver. Restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the IDT sound.

This solution worked for me.

I have had this problem on a Dell Latitude, and I finally found a solution that worked for me. In the Control Panel, in Hardware and Sound, there is an IDT Audio Control Panel. In that panel, I unchecked "Enable Power Management." I rebooted and the problem disappeared and has not returned.
