    Somtmes, not always, but once I reach about 5 tabs in Chrome, all sound coming from my speakers stops... anything... windows media player, skype call, fb/youtube video, everything.

    I can get the sound back by closing a tab or 2. They are not the same tabs I open, they are random websites each time it happens.

    From the volume mixer, nothing is muted, all is appearing to work normally.

    I can find nothing like this from googling it.

    Try reinstalling Chrome to see if this resolves your issue.

    I will try this now, but the problem does not happen every time so I can not say if it has been fixed immediately.

    Alright, did you check to see if there were any further updates after installing 1709?, it may not update right away and you may need to retry a couple of times!. ;)
