Sound randomly stops working in Windows 8

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.
