Since Kondo's not here i will try to help. Run Windows Defender>Tools>Software Explorer and turn off the startup programs you don't need (all of them). Change the priority of your tasks in the tasks manager (via right clicking after hitting ctrl-alt-del). I don't use vista so I can't do anything about the errors, but getting rid of all the extra pre-installed programs should help. If all else doesn't work add a stick of RAm or downgrade to XP if it bothers you too much.

i already turned of the startup programs so it can't be the cause of this. it began right after i installed service pack 1 for vista. and the errors are mostly at the sound, i want to say that i can't regulate the sound and sometimes my icq goes down as well. but thank you for helping me i will try to ask my brother when i can maybe he can help me( when i can reach to him)..

Method 1: Restart the computer

Method 2: Plug the computer speakers in again

Method 3: Verify that the default output device is set correctly
1. Click Start button, type Sound in the Start Search box, and then click Sound in the search results at the top of the Start menu.
2. Click the Playback tab. A check mark is displayed next to the default device.
3. Click on the thing that you want to set as the default device, and then click Set Default.
4. Click OK to save your settings and to close the Sound dialog box.

Method 4: Verify that the sound driver is installed
1. Click on the Start button, type Device Manager in the Start Search box, and then press enter.
2. In the Device Manager dialog box, expand Sound, video, and game controllers.

If there is a yellow question mark next to an item in the list, the device driver is not present or will not load, so go to method 5.

Method 5: Reload the current sound driver
1. Click on the Start button, type Device Manager in the Start Search box, and then press enter
2. In the Device Manager dialog box, expand Sound, video, and game controllers.
3. Locate the audio device that was included with the computer.
4. Right-click the device, and then click Properties.
5. Click the Driver tab.
6. Click Uninstall.
7. Make sure that the Delete the Driver Software for this device check box is cleared, and then click OK.
8. In the Device Manager dialog box, click the Action menu, and then click Scan for hardware changes.
9. Close the Device Manager dialog box, and then determine whether you can hear sound.

Method 6: Update the current sound driver
Contact the maker of your speaker/laptop or check their website for updates.
