Have a mysterious problem with my brother's system. When he boots up, he doesn't always have sound. It might take 3 boot-ups before the sound appears and works fine for the duration the computer in on.
I had a technician check the system with my brother's speakers...the whole gamut, and of course there was sound.
Any ideas what could be causing this eratic behaviour? All I could grasp at were shared files, or start-up files conflicting, drivers....I've updated all the hardware that I could, but to no avail.
Curious to see if you've heard of this problem before.
