I don't think so.  About the only thing I may have done along those
lines is cycle the power and/or install a usb printer. Of course, when
I did those I didn't stop to check and make sure everything worked,
and the first time or two I didn't get sound I just figured the
speakers got unplugged and was too lazy to check.

I've found something worse than oldies station that play the music I used to
listen to. Oldies stations that play the "new" music I used to complain about.
