I went on my computer yesterday (Windows XP) and was having problems playing videos. I only get a few seconds of choppy video and then it goes black. (YouTube,Yahoo, etc)

I then tried playing a video file on my computer and it worked fine, except there was no audio. I tried .wma in Windows Media Player and .mp3 songs in Itunes, no sound.

I scanned my computer with MalwareBytes and SuperAntiSpyware and it didn't find anything. I then restarted the computer and everything was working fine.

But today (about the same time as yesterday) I had the same problem. All of a sudden, online videos stopped working and audio was gone.

Restarted it again and now it's back to normal.

What could the problem be?

Microsoft Windows XP
Home Edition
Version 2002
Service Pack 3

Dell Dimension DIMC521
AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual
Core Processor 4000+
2.10 GHz, 1.93 GB or RAM
