Lose Sound with Audacity 2.2

Having problems,
When I start to play a album with the Audacity Software on the music plays for about 20 sec than stops, I am running windows 10 on a Alienware laptop. I checked the Audacity Logs and see this:

I need Help Please !!!

There is no Audacity 2.2 supplied by us.

If that is not a typo, I suggest you uninstall that version, run an anti-virus check on your computer, then install the current Audacity 2.1.2 release from our site: http://www.audacityteam.org/download/windows.

FFmpeg is an optional library that lets Audacity import and export more audio formats. It does not seem that is relevant to your problem, especially given Audacity loads it properly according to the log.

What audio are you trying to play, and on what sound device? You can show us your audio devices by posting Help > Audio Device Info… top right of Audacity.

If it’s a recording you made with a microphone, you may need to turn off Windows corrective audio enhancements.

If you upgraded to Windows 10 over previous Windows on the same machine, you should go to the Alienware site to install the latest Windows 10 audio drivers intended for your specific computer model.

If you are playing to an external sound card or PCI sound card (some sound card other than the one built-in to the motherboard) you need to go to that manufacturer’s site to look for Windows 10 drivers.

If you don’t have compatible or correct audio drivers for your sound device(s), then bad playback or recording may result.
