Recently I upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate. Ever since I'm having trouble with my audio. When I listen to music in any application (like WMP, Winamp or streaming) my sound stops after a limited period of time. This period differs between a few minutes and say 20 minutes.
The applications (ie WMP) simply 'hang'. When I click the play/pause button nothing happens except for changing the symbol from 'play' to 'pause'. The time bar stays in place.
I can reactivate sound by clicking 'sound settings' and perform a sound test in the configuration screen. (I translate these options from Dutch, so names may be different in English: select the used speakers, right click, configure). I get a screen where I can choose between a mono and a stereo test. When I choose the stereo test I get a warning that the speakers are used by an other app. Do I want to continu? On 'yes' it performs an audible stereo test (sound from each speaker seperately) and also resumes the music. It resets something, but what and why!?
Although not exclusively, surfing does make the sound stop. It doesn't matter if I use (my regular) Chrome or IE. (I.e. choosing a new page on NOS Teletekst
causes a certain stop). What is triggered by this site?
Who can help me bring the music back? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
