Windows 7: Sound crashes and videos starts lagging!

Sound crashes and videos starts lagging!

Hey. I have a really annoying problem. The sound crashes randomly, and any videos also start lagging, (both youtube videos and windows media player videos,) at the same time. It occurs any time, sometimes half an hour from when i started the computer, sometimes after 6+ hours. The only thing that solves the problem is to reboot the computer. I Installed a clean install of Windows, but it still crashes. The sound works fine when it's not crashed. I always have conversations in Skype, maybe that has something to do with it?

My computer is an ACER ASPIRE M5810:
Intel Core i7 860 @ 2,8 GHz
NVIDIA GeForce GTS 240
4,00 Gb RAM
500+300 Gb Hard Drive
Realtek High Definition Audio
Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit

Help is very much appreciated! Thanks in advance!

This is some other PC problem and not really a "sound" hardware or driver problem.

Sound Starts Crackling And Breaking Up During Videos And Screen Record
When i'm playing videos the sound starts becoming very crackly and buzzy. I checked my CPU usage because my old laptop used to do this due to CPU spikes, but it's still sitting between 0-5%. The laptop is only a few months old and it's been doing this for about a fortnight now. Also when i'm...

Full screen videos and games lagging

Lagging, "Flickering" sound in videos and more
All right this one beats me. Few weeks ago the sound from internet videos and winamp started to "flicker". The first instinct was my computer is running at 100% or lack of memory. I checked my task manager and my cpu is about 25-30% with 16% going to chrome process (watching the daily show/youtube)...
