    .. another strange error cropped up today with the HDAC audio controller not starting. 2 of them ?
    Checked looked for new driver and uninstalled and rebooted - comes up error again.
    Just wondering with this and the bitlocker error earlier in the week if my SP3 is starting to have HW issues ?
    a..any suggestions ?

    Again, with two components that are MoBo, sounds like you may have a hardware issue...

    I developed this after a firmware update a long time ago. Was told (on these forums) it was an update to the MS dock.

    I got rid of this issue (that arose after the last fw update) by uninstalling both HDAC. Then rebooting to force it to recognise the hw. Now it has one that is working properly.
    1 issue down 2 to go.
