Click from speakers, then "not responding"

  1. Hey... So I'm running Windows 7 on my laptop. A few times each day, if i go to play something new or play after it has been paused, I'll hear a click from the speakers and I'll have no sound. I close WMP and try to play it again and it says that the "execution failed" after a couple minutes of trying. After that notice pops up I can play anything like normal. Along with this Windows Explorer (as in the bottom toolbar) becomes non-responsive. I close it and start it again. I replaced my harddrive and I thought that would fix it. But it seems as if the same problem has carried over. If you have any ideas I'd sure appreciate it. Thanx

    Are there any yellow exclamation marks in the device manager?
