    Sound Trouble

    Help!

    At the same time each night the sound will die, no matter what upgrades/driver installs. Now i have heard from a friend that he had trouble with a similar problem but his was killing a program. Now his problem was on XP and to do with the event log cycle and refreshing. Now i am wondering if it is a similar problem with the sound as i have exhausted all ideas, how do i alter the timing of the Event log if it is possible?

    btw this is on a Dell XPS

    I had a bizarre problem on a Dell laptop once that had 2 headphone ports on it and when something was plugged into one of them and removed the sound would stop working. Not until you put something back in and removed it again would the sound start working. Was a very peculiar issue and i never did get around to solving it. Don't know if this is anything similar to what you are experiencing.

    I have the exact same issue above with my M1730, it really is very frustrating but I know calling dell will result in me having my laptop out of action with no resolution :-(

    I have tried this, but no matter what i do at 10pm every night the sound goes requiring a restart of the machine. When you are in the middle of an online guild event it is pretty hard to log out and get back on to the same server and before anyone asks it is not the game as it will do it no matter what program/game is running at that time of night.

    Is anything actually dumped into event log when this happens?

    Killing all nonessential processes can help to narrow things down.
