What O\S are you ising? It is not uncommon that when an application using the soundcard crashes it takes access to the soundcard with it. I've recently fieleded a question about spotify doing a similar thing under certain circumstances. What you could try is restarting the Windows Audio service. go to computer management - services - Windows Audio. Right-click this then select restart (or start if it is listed as having stopped.
