Windows 7: Sound not working and win 7 lock's in

Windows 7 Pro (x64)
Sound not working and win 7 lock's in

Requesting Help Please...My audio stops working and everything else seems to not function, I don't know if Windows crashed (which it seems like) or the Sound is causing this problem...but this happens ususallly when I am running a program which relies on Audio a lot...such as my media Player or a Game...after around a few hours the sound stops working correctly and after I exit the program I can't run other programs without them crashing...I have to restart the PC for everything to work normally till it happens again....I am currently running Windows 7 Professional x64..

I also have SRS sandbox running and my sound card is a integrated realtek ALC888. I have installed the the latest realtek 2.39 drivers as well...I need help in fixing this issue...I have uploaded my System info in case it would be needed...thanks
