Set-up: P3 laptop, 512mb ram, Windows XPsp2, virus/spyware-free.

At odd intervals, the audio will stop working on the machine, and the only way to restore it is to restart the machine. I am guessing it is not a hardware issue, because VLC and MPC take an inordinate amount of time to launch whenever this problem is occurring. It *may* have something to do with a virtual-memory leak in a recent Windows update (because I've only had this problem very recently, and none of the player software has been updated for awhile).

I have, without success, attempted to jigger things by twiddling various control panels, drivers, etc.

Because I also use this machine for lengthy video-encoding projects, it's annoying to have to wait half the day before restarting in order to hear things again.

-- Any ideas?
