Howdy folksies. Got a laptop with what I suspect to be failing sound hardware and or speaker issues. I need your help in diagnosing this.
Symptom: The speakers suddenly stop playing sound. They play normally after "every" reboot, but then after the "same amount of time", suddenly go blank.
When I click the volume bar, I can see the green part moving (that lets me know that windows IS indeed playing sound) just that nothing comes out the speakers.
First attempted drivers, next a reinstall of the OS (various versions to make sure). Same symptoms occur. I believe the same happens even with headphones.
