Hello Yan!

I seem to have the similar problem, and I also turned power savings off. No
help. But now when you mentioned those multimedia and sound stuff, I can
remember that once I got a blue screen complaining about some sound driver
(which is btw properly installed and is newest version). What do you mean by
turning multimedia and soun off? You mean leaving the machine totally without
sound, uninstalling something, or what?

Thanx in advance,

                      Zoran
