    no audio when playing music or watching videos.

    tried to play any music in itunes and no audio, music bar line never leaves the far left end.
    tried to watch video and no audio, video itself is fine but the sound disappeared no clue how or why.
    tried to raise the volume meter for the audio of windows itself and the audio is ok. and also my computer is not on MUTE.
    any thoughts on why this is happening? no audio/sounds on any media related files but on the sound effects of windows itself is fine.

    update: i tried watching a video from youtube and the audio is working fine. so i really have no idea what's going on with my laptop now.

    Please fill in the "My System Specs", including what sound hardware you have. All we are left to do is guess without it.

Solved Random BSOD when watching videos in BSOD Crashes and Debugging
This has been happening for a while now. But I've been having some unexplained BSODs. Usually it happens when playing videos. I get this "BRRRRR" noise and the computer slows down for a few seconds. And sometimes it just crashes after that, and I get a BSOD with some DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION error.

Yesterday I was watching a video and the screen froze for about 5 seconds, some pixels went all weird, and then the BSOD came out. Then I watched videos today and it happened again 2 times. I attached the files, so good luck.
