    Default Sound will stop working several times in windows 8

    I have no idea what causes this problem. Sound will suddenly stop working sometimes. So I have to stop and restart Windows Audio and Creative Audio to restore the sound. To confirm it is all sounds, including system sounds, when it has stopped working, I get no sound when I click on the volume control slide bar. Normally, when sound is working, if you click on the slider, you get a pop sound. When it has stopped working no sound is produced when clicking the slider.

    Note: I am using windows 8 CP.

    Thanks for any help that can be given.

    I have fixed it now. I would like to stay windows 8 CP for a while. I am lazy and I dont want to spend much time to download and install a new OS which is still beta OS and might have more problems. Thanks, anyway.

    Indications (rumors) are that the RTM will be out sometime in July. This is the version that is released to OEM PC builders. At that point the code is locked and there will be no further changes, just updates. Also rumored Win 8 will be released in September.

    With these dates in mind, the code in Win 8 RP has to be close to final. Possibly just some tweaks in the system. The beta releases will eventually deactivate. I have not specifically heard the time frame for this, but again rumors are sometime in January.

    1 beta is usually better than the 1 before it. As for Win8 RP, as a Microsoft Beta Tester, I'm on the lookout for "problems"... it's feeling like I'm looking for bananas in an corn field.

    RP has some nice changes over the CP.

    Cheers,
    Drew
