Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Sound doesn't turn on after a few minutes!

\015 Hi guys\015\012\015\012Having a problem with sound on my pc. When i start up my pc there is a few minutes where if i start a program (game/movie/browser) the sound will run perfectly until i turn it off. But then if i try opening it up again after the first few minutes there is no sound. :P\015\012\015\012Its very annoying as whenever i want to hear sound on a game or video i have to restart my pc and open it up right after windows loads. Or else im doomed to silence!!\015\012\015\012This is the case with both my speaker sets and my headphones. I also replaced the sound card a while ago and still no difference.\015\012\015\012Im loosing my mind!! xD\015
