Windows 7: Netflix Runs Very Slow Until Enabling Audio, Then It's Fine

Netflix Runs Very Slow Until Enabling Audio, Then It's Fine

I have encountered very weird behavior in my Windows 7 machine. Recently, for no reason at all, I have been getting blue screens; maybe 4-10x per day. So, this machine will auto-reboot all by itself. After the machine comes up, I can open web browser, and try to play Netflix or YouTube, and videos play VERY slow. Also, there is no audio. So, I go to Control Panel > System > Device Manager > Sound, Video, and Game controllers. I Disable and then Enable the Audio, and everything is totally fine. Before I do this, nothing will work in any browser (Firefox, Chrome, and IE). I have all Windows Updates. I don't see any weird issues with the Registry, or anything for that matter. Does anyone here have any idea what could be going on here? I have been using Windows for a long time. I have never encountered anything like this before. All problems started around 2-3 weeks ago. I have no idea what triggered this. Any and all suggestions are welcome. Thanks.

Ok, thanks for that info. I definitely didn't know about that. I followed the instructions, created the, and uploaded the results just now. Can someone who understands this stuff (presumably a lot better than me), take a look and give me some feedback. Thanks!
