    Red face Sound keeps crashing

    I have to keep restarting Audioserv in Task Manager in the Services tab. This has been happening for a few months.

    It always happens when I am trying to stream with OBS. It works for about a minute or so, then it just dies. The sound skips every second or so. Once I restart Audioserv, it works OK again. However, I have to restart any game and Youtube videos.

    Google is coming up empty.

    What I have tried:

    Running hardware diagnostic using Ultimate Boot. All seems good.
    Running Windows Update.
    Updating drivers.
    Checking for malware.

    I cannot think of anything other than hardware failure the Boot CD could not find. As you all know, hardware problems are extremely hard to isolate without lots of spare parts hanging around. Any ideas would be great.

    Thanks, babes.

    Have you set OBS to run in compatibility mode?

    Posting your OS would be a big help.

    OBS I assume is Open Broadcaster Software

    Windows 10.

    Yes, OBS is Open Broadcaster.

    Yes, I tried compatibility mode. I even tried running as admin. Still no luck.
