Can't tell you why you having this problem try unistalling your sound card or onboard sound and reinstalling it could be corrupted.

Do u need a newer sound driver for ur card depending on ur op/sys.

A friend lost her sound, and removing some seldom-used, resource-hungry startup items restored it. It often seems the first thing to go when memory's at its limit. As rebooting seems to cure your problem, could you be opening too many applications at once?
