  • Help with Sound card driver issue...

    Well....

    I was doing a Windows Update on my home machine, and it for some reason updated my sound driver for the wrong card.

    I have an MSI K7N2G-ILSR board with built in NVidia Sound...

    Windows update downloaded and installed a CMI sound card driver.

    I uninstalled it in Add/Remove, but now everytime I boot up I get this pop up message:



    Anything I can do? I've tried to disable it in MSConfig, but I can't find it....

    Please help me out!

    Peace,

    Rafster

    Click on Start, Run, then type in MSCONFIG
    look over the startup apps and see if the CMI card is still in there. If so, uncheck it and reboot. Should clear that up for you.


    Ok, never mind. I didn't read the last line of your post. Dammit, I need glasses.

        .cpl files are Control Panel files. Usually located in \windows\system. The original sound card came with a control panel part, windows [stupidly, of course] removed it. See if you can find the missing file and manually put it in system.

              What I did was just search the registry for the CPL file, and delete anything that came up... (Did reg backup 1st ofcourse... )

              Rebooted this morning and, no more error message!!!

              Peaceand thanks to all for help,
