Yep. It's certainly not overheating... both the CPU and GPU idle in the low 40s, and the CPU doesn't ever get above 80. I've noticed that my GPU rarely, if ever, gets above the low 60s - could this be a sign that it is under-performing somehow? Based on some brief googling, the 560m is generally known to run pretty hot.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water eh? Mate try a memtest you will need to make a bootable disk and set the BIOS to boot from the optical and you must let it run for at least 8 passes unless the errors come up straight away. It does take a long time to do and if the errors do not come up in short time overnight is good.
See RAM - Test with Memtest86+ there is a later version but it is beta so try this one first.

I let Memtest86+ run overnight, and it went through 9 passes with no errors found.

Mate I have a Toshiba L550 but not up to your specs and I have two audio devices listed in my Device manager both are listed as Microsoft and I am just wondering what yours are listed as in the DM on your machine.
It did occur to me perhaps the two drivers you have installed maybe conflicting with each other?

Could you tell us what the exact model number is now you will need to quote the Part Number it is under the machine and is made up of alpha -numeric see pic.

This is an important thing to remember when you are getting support from say Toshiba and it relates to where the machine was made and intended for - mine is the Aussie Part NO

PS Imeant to say I got this with Speccy if the label is disfigured http://www.piriform.com/speccy/download < from piriform

I am definitely grasping at straws here but, it could be worth a shot?... I have this issue with my sound whenever I want to use the HDMI sound to watch something from my PC on my HDTV and it has to do with the fact that if the speakers at default then I get no sound on my HDTV, I have to switch to HDMI audio as default for the TV to have audio and viceversa... the point is that I can never get this right.

Check on your Sound properties in Control Panel to see which one is the default audio... see image attached.

Also, realtek digital output has never worked for me so I don't even bother with it.

Yep ALV that's why I wanted to know the model of that machine to dig out the audio devices as mine are Microsoft.
