    I am running windows vista. When my laptop goes into hibernate and then
    comes back out my sound stops working until I disable it an re-enable it.

    Also, I run dual monitors and it switches the side of the one monitor and
    messes up all my icons. Any suggestions?

    Possibly driver related. Is everything up to date, it is a good first place
    to start. Hibernate seems to be somewhat ropey atm, it does not work at all
    for me, in the fact when I put my machine into hibernate it will not wake

    Yes, sorry. Forgot to say that everything is up to date.

    It may be a known problem. I never really looked into it as Sleep is what I
    generally use.

    Is your sound device a high definition audio one? If so, in Control Panel >
    Windows Update, click on View Update History. Do you have KB937077
    installed? If it is available as an update, when you click on Check for
    Updates, install it.

    I have that update installed successfully, but the problem still happens.
    When I do resume from Hibernate and click mute and unmute I can hear a
    popping sound emanating from the speakers. That is the only response I get
    from them unless I reboot the system. I did not think about disabling and
    enabling the driver, before I read this.

    Any further suggestions?

    What is your audio adapter?
    What driver version are you using?

    That is the generic Windows Vista HD audio driver and the source of your
    problem. You must find out the actual manufacturer of your audio adapter and
    download and install the latest Vista audio drivers.

    Is it Realtek, Sigma Tel, etc.?

    In Control Panel (Classic view) > Device Manager > expand Sound, video and game
    controllers, right click on the HD audio entry and select Properties. On the
    Details tab > Property drop down list > Manufacturer, is the manufacturer

    Or go to your computer or motherboard manufacturer and see if you can determine
    what the exact manufacturer of the audio adapter is. Also, consult any
    documentation you have received.

    If it is the Realtek High Definition Audio adapter, go here:

    http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads...=3&GetDown=false#High Definition Audio Codecs

    NOTE: You may have to run the driver install twice. Once to uninstall the
    older driver. REBOOT. Again to install the updated drivers. REBOOT

    I know but I keep getting an error when I run it.

    I fixed it finally. I had to disable and reinstall a driver for XP in order
    for it to work.

    Thanks for your help.

    What was the error?

    Wow -- you got an XP driver to work?

    the error was "Driver Installation Failed: Could not find the MEDIA device
    for this driver."
    I don't understand why MEDIA was capitalized or what I got this error in the
    first place.

    Ya, the XP driver actually made it work. Actually, before I meddled around
    with this, whenever I pressed the mute button (or clicked mute on the volume
    meter) the mute LED of my notebook would NOT turn on (as it used to do with
    XP). When I did all this, it actually began lighting when I muted. Weird.
