Regarding the sound problem what sound card make and model are you using?
Are you using alsa or oss and what kernel modules are loaded?
You may need to monitor /var/log/messages then use rcalsasound stop then
rcalsasound start to reveal some clue about what has happened to your sound
 ( that is if alsa is being used).
