    I don't know if it anything you did. My ESP has been on the blink lately. Anyways...
    From the Common Issues section of the Troubleshooters Sticky

    No sound, skippy/choppy/crackly playback, high VM usage, etc.
    Howzit....Whatzit...what tha...? How to tune up, and keep your Winamp player humming along. Search this Forum to find others who have driven down your road and have advice and tips to help you out.
    Close & restart Winamp after the DirectSound tweaks. Although not necessary, you may want to close Winamp, Windows and restart the computer. Some user have found changes don't fully take effect until a reboot.

    You may also want to update the sound drivers. Sudden playback issues or changes in playback, can be attributed outdated or corrupted sound drivers. If you have a soundcard go the manufacturer's website for updates. If you have an on board sound chip, go to the website of your computer provider or the manufacturer of the motherboard.

    No luck? Please provide system specs
