I have a number of sound problems , none of which really got me angry untill now.

1. After about 5 hours my sound panel will tell me there are no audio devices and I won't be able to hear anything (unless I'm in a skype chat :thumbsup:).

2. This is the recent part , my computer is only reading one of the sound devices - my headphones and the not the rear input speakers.

I've installed the Realtek drivers a couple times , because my computer would just totally lose all the sound devices and that worked for awhile , but now this problem ...

Have a look in the Event Viewer for any errors at the time you lose the sound.

To open the Event Viewer go to Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Event Viewer. Alternately, go to Start > Run and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter.

Check in all the categories.

If you find an error that occurred at the time right-click on it and select properties. Copy the information in the window and post it back here.

The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:
SYMTDI

I got that one a couple times today and yesterday (when the problem started).

And this one

Faulting application , version 0.0.0.0, faulting module unknown, version 0.0.0.0, fault address 0x00000000.

I'm pretty sure that first one is related to Symantec.

Right click on the C drive in Explorer and go Properties > Tools > Check Now (under Error Checking). Check both boxes then click "Start Now". A message will pop up saying that Error Checking will run after you restart the computer. Restart the computer and Error Checking will run automatically after the restart. After itís finished it will restart into Windows automatically.

The log from the error checking can be found in the Event Viewer under an item named "Winlogon".

Bad sectors is not a good thing. It may be an indication that your hard drive is failing.

How's the sound problem? Any improvement?

The sound dosen't seem to be failing after about 5-6 hours anymore , but the rear input speakers still aren't being read.

Check your devices in Device Manager (Start > Run > type "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter). Look for any "!", "?" or "X" symbols.

None of them have any ! , ? , or X's - Realtek High Definition Audio is there - but I don't see Rear Audio Input or something along those lines which is how my speakers were always labeled at the sound control panel.
