    Sound/Audio randomly stops working?

    Okay well this happened like 2-3 weeks ago, i have an extremely annoying problem.. The sound of my computer would randomly stop working for some reason.. Not only that, but when i watch youtube the video or any video it won't load and it would literally pause or freeze.

    To fix this i would have to disconnect/reconnect my headset or disable/enable my headset through the sound control panel; when i do this, it seems to fix everything, as the sound would come back and the videos would load back up and work normally again, but in 20min or 1hour the same problem would occur again and i would have to do the same process over and over again... Anyone has a solution for this weird phenomenon?

    My OS is windows 8.1
    And my headset is a Logitech H540

    That's USB headphones, right ? Maybe your USB controller goes to "sleep" or headphones' driver itself. Change those power saving settings and see.
