    My computer is no more than a month old and it worked completly fine until just a few days ago.

    Whenever i'm playing pokerstars, I lose sound after 7 minutes which causes me to restart my computer to get my sound back. It seems to only happen when playing that one game. It also causes my windows media player to play very fast without sound and then lock up where my computer wont do a thing without resetting it.

    Cliffnotes - Computer loses sound while playing pokerstars, which also causes media player to go nuts while listening to music at the same time. I tried playing pokerstars without media player and it still lost sound. Any ideas??

    With zero details, all I can suggest is to update the sound drivers and maybe the chipset drivers.
