I am using a PC with Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2, which has as audio device, Realtek HD. All my drivers are up-to-date.
I have a serious a problem few minutes after booting Windows, an error message appears saying "Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
After this happening, my audio device dies completely (computer has no sound; in Control Panel => Sounds and Audio Devices says No audio device found; many applications refuse to run because no audio devices detected!).
Please note that while such error messages does not appear (few minutes after booting), everything is OK.
And I can tell you even more if I open an application that obligatory needs an audio device, before such error appears, the applications continues to work well (with sound) even after such error appears and so no sound (except for applications opened before error appearance).
Do you understand? What do you suggest?
Thanks in advance.
