Sound Stops

Windows XP with current version of WMP:

If I'm watching a video (especially if I click on the video timeline to move ahead in the video), the sound will simply stop. Not just in WMP, but the sound on the entire computer will stop until I either log off/on or restart. I have had multiple sets of speakers and this phenomenon is not necessarily limited to WMP, but that is when i notice it most often.

Adding more strangeness, when i do log off or shut down in order to restart the sound, my computer makes the "goodbye" sounds!!! it just won't play any sounds and i haven't found a way to "fool" it into thinking i'm logging off so that the sound kicks back in without doing so...

thanks!

Sounds like one of those unfixable Windows glitches. I suggest using System Restore. Choose the most recent restore point before this started happening:

Start > All Programs > Accesories > System Tools > System Restore

The wizard is pretty self-explainatory. I also suggest switching media players, as anything Windows SUCKS. (sorry bout the strong opinion)
