Sorry it took a day to get back to you. I have been trying all sorts of things to get this figured out.
First I did as you suggested and went to,"Run...typed in..."diskmgmt.msc" Here is ALL that came up on teh screen as follows... this format won't look quite the same but here are the headers from left to right and what it says under each one:
Volume Layout Type Filesystem Capacity FreeSpace
C Partition Basic Healthy 298.08GB 285.08GB
Then I went to the control panel.... System...hardware.... RealTek .... there is nothing to,"Roll back" too so I then ran the trouble shooter...Said it is working fine and that it is running the lastest available driver.(version 188.8.131.5297 )
I ran my Norton virus program (deepscan) and foudn no virus's...The went and downloaded Microsoft's Adware/Spyware removal tool and ran a complete scan with that... nothing bad found...
I then went pack into Ad/Remove programs and it shows that I already have the Security Update For Microsoft.NetFramework 1.1 SP1 on Windows XP along with all the updates released since: i.e 2.0,3.0,3.5 SP1, and 4.0 Client Profile.
Still..down in the bottom right of my tray is the update shield indicating I need to update..so..I ran that and when done it said,"The following updates were not installed, Security Update for Microsoft.Net Framework1.1 SP1".....????????? Not sure why it is prompting me to install something that already shows as being installed when I look in Add Remove Programs?? Can I make it stop giving me false update info?
I also ran the trouble shooters on each item in the Device manager and all indicate they are working fine??
You had mentioned my blue screens seems to happen when coming out of hibernation which is I believe, accurate...Went and checked how often the updater was set to update and it was set for everyday...I changed that to once a week.
Now the latest adventure which is..I got another blue screen yesterday morning and this one was different???
Let me just list the stop codes I have seen to date below:
First was the Realtek stop code.. Stop: Ox000000D1 (Ox0000001,C,Ox00000002,OxA7B3AF47
Also this... Stop :Ox000000D1 (OxF4E816EE,Ox00000002,Ox00000001,Ox8941600B
Below each Stop code message was this... "Windows Login Process system terminated unexpectantly with a status (?) system has been shut down.. Under that it said,"Running dump of physical memory" and then, "Physical Memory Dump Complete"
To get out of any of these stop codes all I do is re-boot and the computer seems to run just fine?
It is only two years old so I am flumoxed at this point... I went to another site thinking it was the Dell site and downloaded a software program they said was free when I first went in ..It's called "Driver Detective"..Turn out it wasn't the official Dell site...
It did perform a scan of my system and the scan say's I have twenty items on the computer whose drivers need updating and that I could have the software fix the problems if I'd just give them my credit card..LOl Wouldn't do it anyway as I don't trust those ,"Fixes" but I can't afford it anyway....
In all this fiddle farting around something with my sound has changed...It works but the sound is kinda ,"Tinny/distant".
Anyway..I don't want to overwhelm you with all this but wanted to make sure I gave you all the information I can discern. Thank you so much for your valuable time!!
