Hi people. I dont know if this issue is a hardware problem or not but I'll try anyway. The problem is weird.... really... Some random days I turn on my pc to find any program will just refuse to play audio!! I mean, hitting the play button will not start the reproduction of the file. No errors, no jump to other files, no sound, no seeker bar movement, just like I'd never hit the button in the fist place. This happens with winamp, wmp, mcp, vlc, etc etc. Windows itself wont play any sound (games, web, etc) but the audio device doesn´t show any problem. As I said, its random. Some restarts will fix the problem until it just happens again. I have a Creative x-fi xtreme gamer on an am3 asus mobo (I can provide more details when at home if u need). Windows 7 pro sp1. Any hint on how to solve this once and for all? Thx in advance.
