Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Whenever I want to listen to music, I have to open my master volume controls and turn up the wave. After I turn up the wave, everything is fine for approximately 45 seconds to 1:30 seconds. Then the sound disappears. The slider on the wave control does not reset to zero but if I just click on it without moving it the sound comes back. This will last about the same amount of time before I have to click on it again to get the sound to come back. I use Spotify for most of my music listening but it does happen with windows media player, iTunes, even Youtube and such. I have removed and re-installed Realtek High Definition audio program and all the drivers. Same thing... I have searched for weeks on the internet looking for a solution and cannot find a single thing. I see a lot of posts that are very similar but most of them are dealing with Winamp problems which I do not have. Any help would be much appreciated. Yes, all my audio devices are installed properly and are working normally. It's just strange that I can click on my wave control and I have sound again for a short time.

SOURCE: no sound for windows xp.
Go back into your device manager. Rught click on your sound card or sound device and say uninstall. After it is uninstalled, don't close device manager. Go to very top to your your computer's name or my computer if you didn't name it. Right click and click on scan for hardware changes. Windows will find your device and reinstall in a second. This will give you cack your volume control and sound.

SOURCE: I can not play audio files
In the windows media
player go to > now playing - more options - devices - speakers
then changed the audio device to use your soundcard.
Also, uninstall any other players, they usually interfere with each other.

Since after installing the Service Pack your drivers are update. Now you can not use the previous one.
Since after many trial, your driver is now got corrupt. I will suggest you to Roll Back the System from the Service pack 3 to Service Pack 2. And then go for it.
Otherwise use the Repair window method and then reinstall the original drivers.
Let me know the issue after this.

Tips for a great answer:
1. Right-click the speaker icon in the system
tray (at the far right of the Windows taskbar).
Click Open Volume
Drag the slider in the
left column with the mouse to adjust master volume.
4. Drag the slider under the name of the input source to adjust volume for a specific source, such as CD or Wave Out.
