    Sound vanishes from computer

    From time to time I do not get sound from my computer or even through an ear phone/connected external speakers.
    But sound can be heard from a connected TV through HDMI, if from playback devices I chose the TV as default.
    On re-starting the computer the problem gets solved- but re occurs after a few days.
    Could some one please help'
    Thanks & regards

    All kinds

    Some applications/programs/games Just love to take sound over and not release it after closing or collide with other ones. You can go to Control panel > Sound > Speaker properties > Advanced and play with two settings for "Allow applications...." and "Give exclusive rights..."
