windows xp taskbar changes color cannot access audio
Posted on 2010-09-24
This is a new build, new computer but using WinXP - problem is at some point during the day the taskbar switches from blue to a silverish color (and font changes) and then services seem to stop - audio goes off completely, Internet still connected but apps are erratic, like QuickBooks cannot find the network database.
When I reboot-everything is fine ... for awhile. Do not know where to look to solve the problem. Is it the audio driver? But then why would the screen/taskbar change? That seems to be consistent - whenever the taskbar is blue, the problem definitely shows up.
Also, when closing, a BSD c000021a but memory address all 0's so I don't know what that is telling me.
