Oh man....LM now reports that my Intel Quad Core only has 1 core functioning!!.....Gstreamer is reporting I have lost my audio!!!..had to reinstall my Nvidia drivers after rebooting and getting low graphics mode message!
Flash aint working in FF nor Opera Final!!! What the heck is happening!!!....They changes I have made recently was adding Conky and VirtualBox..thats it....no updates pending from LM.....
The error message I get when I click on the Speaker w/the red x is:
The volume control did not find any elements and/or devices to control. This means either that you don't have the right GStreamer plugins installed, or that you don't have a sound card configured.
You can remove the volume control from the panel by right-clicking the speaker icon on the panel and selecting "Remove From Panel" from the menu.
