Frequent Loss of Sound, XP laptop

My sound driver frequently gets lost (Sigmatel) so I get no sound from Youtube and other clips. I reinstall the driver and then sound is ok for a few days, then gets lost again. Machine is a dell Inspiron, XP, 3 gigs, 1.8 GHz duocore, dedicated 8600 video chip.
Any advice welcome.

Check Dell website for your model/service tag (or use the auto-detect option) and see if there are any audio driver updates. Or maybe you have the last updated version and going back to the previous version will help.
