My built in laptop speakers doesn't function sometimes?

I recently purchased a brand new laptop, HP Compaq Presario CQ40 with windows Vista Operating System and built in Altec Lansing Speakers. For the first 2 months, my speakers were working just fine until 2 weeks back when I turned on my computer only to find out that my speakers weren't functioning. However my laptop could detect the presence of the speakers. I immediately did a virus scan and checked the Device Manager and everything was fine. The driver was enabled and was working properly. It was not it mute and there was no yellow"?" icon. I tried refreshing my speaker device through Windows Media Player and still no result.
Finally I tried rebooting my computer and it did the trick.
My speakers have failed to function a few times now and my only solution was to reboot my computer? Sometimes the speakers suddenly stop playing sounds when I switch from one Youtube video to another. Or it fails to play windows start up sound...?
Is there a better solution? Can anyone tell me why this is happening?
