Sorry to hear about your troubles. Thanks for your perseverance. Speak 16
was touted as a major step forward , but does have some known issues
Are you able to tell us how you reinstalled it? Did you download an .xo file

Hrm. These are issues with GStreamer, the multimedia system. 
~/.sugar/default/logs is where activity logs are stored. There should be a
log named "org.laptop.SpeakActivity.log" or "org.sugarlabs.SpeakActivity"
that should provide some clues as to why it's breaking.
