On an iMac running Windows 7 a customer has an odd problem. They can run media player to play music ok initially but after a period Windows will start to report that there is a problem with the sound devices and no sound will play until the machine is rebooted.

I used the latest boot camp drivers on the build.

Is there anything else I can try?

Try installing Realtek audio drivers, as this article suggests. It might seem strange to install Realtek drivers, but Apple uses an audio chipset from that company. It might just make the problem go away.

@Chris let me know how it works, I'm actually curious myself. –  alex Feb 17 '10 at 21:58
    
Thanks. So far it seems to be working - at the very least it's more stable than it was as the things that broke the sound previously don't seem to be an issue now. –  Chris W Feb 18 '10 at 9:37
