Windows xp problem..no sound after few minutes...!
hello guys.. i am a computer technician..and i have been facing a wierd problem since last few months some of the cybercafes where i install a fresh copy of windows xp...people complaint that after a few minutes (say 20-30 mins) sound on some computers stop working....and if you restart the affected computer..everything works just fine and then again after sometime sound goes off......when i go to control panel and check sound properties...the slider to adjust volume seems "dim" and you cannot slide it.... and the volume icon in the taskbar also disappears...
another thing that i have noticed is an error regarding "svchost.exe".......and my taskbar also turns to classic style..whenever this problem occours....
i dont know if it is a problem with the drivers....operating system......or what..?
someone please guide me...!

When the sound quits, go to the control panel-->sounds and audio devices-->audio tab-->is there a device selected for the Sound Playback Device? If not, can you pick one from the drop down box?
If not, you may need to reinstall the audio device.
all right....what i see there.(in control panel under sound devices) is.."no sound devices installed.."...but when i check my sound card drivers in device manager..everything seems to be fine... !
What do you have listed under sound, video and game controllers in the device manager?
