Don't think I can did a system restore just after finding the problem and everything was fine.The problem reoccured and I have tried restore points to solve the problem with no success.

I did have an issue with the system builder about on-board sound and insisted he installed a PCI sound card ( Blaster live) which did not work very well. I have a MSI NEO2 Platinum board if that is any help

I don't know if this is relevant in your case, but I have found that changing the sound in RealPlayer affects the system sound.
Sometimes when I mute it I lose all sound and the only way I have been able to get it back has been with System Restore.

I have never got to the bottom of it just worked around it.
