My sound in XP has always been bothersome. last problem was svchost.exe taking up 100% cpu speed, but i fixed that, now its killing itself after about two hours or so of using my computer, the programs that were already up still have audio but any new ones do not..all the system sounds are there like opening a window. but everything says "There are no active mixer devices available" to install mixer devices..blah blah

Its a realtek, it takes the realtek HD audio driver, if I install the other one it crashes my computer whenever it loads.


Also as a side note from time to time my computer kind of just locks up, every program freezes and new ones dont open.. only thing that works is the start menu. I have to do a forced restart.

I also recently reformatted, and these problems started up two weeks after.

I have the latest drivers.

It seems with each reformat I discover something new and exciting about how terrible my computer really is..
