I have a new HP PC and the sound randomly stops working. When the sound stops, it stops in all applications: iTunes, Web Browser, etc.
HP Omni 27 all-in-one desktop
Windows 8 Pro
In Device Manager, under Sound, this is what I have:
- AVerMedia H334 MiniCard Hybrid ATSC/QAM
- Bluetooth Audio Device
- IDT High Definition Audio CODEC
I just set up this new pc this week and I have run all the windows and drivers updates so everything is up to date.
When I boot up the pc, the sound works fine for a while and then randomly stops working. For example, if I play music in iTunes 11, the latest version, it may play for 1 minute or it may play for 10 minutes and then it just randomly stops playing sound and the sound will not come back until I reboot and the same thing happens all over again.
I have searched this online and I found quite a few people posting similar sound issues with Windows 8, but I have not found a fix for this problem yet. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
