Hi Wesley,

I second for Clonezilla, I use this for my work PCs

If you have a big enough USB stick, you can install the live version of Clonezilla on the stick as well as the cloned image,then you have that stick to restore from, or if not big enough USB stick, you can store on an external HD

I do get a bit overwhelmed by often conflicting advice. I don't like
the thought of going to OSS

Agreed it's not something I suggest easily, but as a last resort it solved my issues in the past.

In fact, I can't help but feel that this is a minor problem caused by
a minor setting that I have missed somewhere.

Other possibilities are 1) A hardware issue that just so happened to pop up during the upgrade 2)  A regression in the sound driver that caused yours to stop functioning. if you paste the lshw command output here we can search if your hardware is giving problem for other people too.

Not a good week - my wife's XP notebook is running somewhere between
dead slow and stop.

Could be anything if it's XP ;P Guess that's why people just reinstall, Clonezilla is useful here to image a fresh install, so next time you can just restore the image in 20 mins.
