When was the last time you defragged the drive, deleted temporary and
internet files, ran a registry cleaner and scanned the HD?
Shutdown and restart the PC see if that fixes anything, look for sound
errors in the Events Viewer and run Task Manager to watch resource
utilizations when running YouTube, assuming YouTube video continues to
play while the sound disappears.
