Media Devices Dissapearing Over Time

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I am running Fedora 16 x86_64 on a toshiba laptop. Over time, my devices have been steadily disappearing. I have had this problem in previous installs of fedora. While running f15, my speakers stopped working within a week after install. On a previous install of f16, the speakers lasted about a month before mysteriously ceasing to work. On my latest install (From late february), the speakers went over 6 months ago. I was not very put off by this, as I seldom use the speakers in favor of headphones. However, 2 weeks ago, my webcam and microphone went out. I use these much more often, (HowTos)
