Time to go back to the original question.  Only we know now that the last
two sentences are confusing, because it has nothing to do with wiping

My current guess is that Kubuntu is using your sound card differently than
Windows or Mandriva, and leaving just that card in a state they don't like.

I would recommend going into System Settings -> Multimedia, the Devices tab
and select Music.  I would one-by-one select the output devices on the right
and test them.  If more than one of them work, I would choose a different

Then see if that default is the one used by Windows or Mandriva, making
sound work after warm booting Kubuntu.
