    I've had some problems with XP of late and I am currently working on them (CPU usage gets stuck at 100%) but the newest glitch is that my sound disappears after almost 6 minutes exactly regardless of the application...I have tried playing a movie on WMP and then any other player and after 6 minutes, it goes mute...I don't need to restart the computer for the sound to return...All I have to do is close out the application and then restart it and again the sound will disappear in 6 minutes...Does this sound like a problem that some may recognize?...Thanks

    hmmm, does this happen with other video and/or music files too? I am wondering if there's a problem with that particular movie file.

    Happens with any movie or music file...It happens within 6 minutes and on one occasion it was around 5 minutes...I tried to see if it was a driver that needed updating but that doesn't appear to be the problem
