After my computer has been on for a couple hours, music files refuse to play in iTunes. There is no error message, just when i click on the song nothing happens. I tried to see of Windows Media Player works and the file says that it is playing but there is no sound. When i try videos with Windows Media Player, the video starts to play and then shuts off. When i reboot everything seems to work fine, but i would like to solve the problem because rebooting sucks. I am running Windows XP Pro with Mcaffe Securit Center on a Dell that is 3 months old. Thanks for the help in advance.

How long has this problem been going on? Have you added any hardware or software lately?

One thing to check go into device manager and see if sound card or other hardware have red or yellow marks next to them. If so right click and select uninstall, reboot and let Windows find the "new" hardware and reinstall it.

ok i will try that now. recently i have added my music library to the computer, which is about 20 gigs. the only other things i have added are ipod utilities such as ephpod and ourtunes. i have only noticed the problem in the last 2 or 3 days.


EDIT: also, my password protection does not function after the computer is on for a few hours. when i reboot, i am asked to enter a password, but when i go idle after a couple hours, there is no prompt to enter a password, the computer just goes directly to the desktop

Well that makes hardware and software conflicts unlikely

Have you scanned for viruses and spyware/malware?
