    for some reason out of the blue my computer randomly stops playing sounds and anything to do with videos this includes streaming videos from the net and the only way to fix it is to restart, all drivers are up to date sound wise, codecs are all up to date video wise. and the sound and video drivers appear in the device manager as working properly.

    any ideas apart from throw out the comp lol.

    what are you running
    video card brand and model
    cpu
    m/board
    ram
    power supply
    brand
    model
    wattage

    check the listings in the bios for 12v line voltages and temperatures and post them

    well for starters anything on the net that has video i cant watch. the net will freeze on things like youtube and if someones posted a video on facebook itll freeze there as well. by freeze i mean just the net not the comp. the comp runs fine but just wont play anything media wise on any player no matter if its online or off. i have a range of differnet media players as well and none of them work when this happens.

    the comp specs are

    intel [email protected]
    nvidia GTX 590
    x58 m/b
    12gb ram
    1200watt p/s

    and just in case you start to get technical.....im not lol. i dont see how voltages would turn the sound off, but then again who knows cause i sure dont.

    make and model of the psu

    if the voltages are down it causes heat and heat can be one of the causes of the problems you are having

    check the listings in the bios for 12v line voltages and cpu temperatures and post them

    okay found the event viewer page and this one appears a fair bit and around the times i was using it as well

    Event filter with query "SELECT * FROM __InstanceModificationEvent WITHIN 60 WHERE TargetInstance ISA "Win32_Processor" AND TargetInstance.LoadPercentage > 99" could not be reactivated in namespace "//./root/CIMV2" because of error 0x80041003. Events cannot be delivered through this filter until the problem is corrected.

    that shows up and so does this one......

    The program iexplore.exe version 9.0.8112.16457 stopped interacting with Windows and was closed. To see if more information about the problem is available, check the problem history in the Action Center control panel.

    Process ID: 17d0

    Start Time: 01cdfb871b2c5594

    Termination Time: 8

    Application Path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe
