    I have Sigmatel High Definition Codec driver. My OS is Windows Vista Home Premium. I have a Gateway GM5420 computer.

    I have sound (audio) from time to time. Then it just disappears. I try to reload and I get error message "Device object not present. Restart system and run setup again."

    This problem existed with this computer right out of the box. Gateway tech support is absolutely useless and ludicrous. Ergo I live with the problem.

    Has anyone had this problem and how was it resolved? I appreciate any help you may can give me with this frustrating problem.
