Sorry Guys, I am all hummed-out.
I am still sitting here, headphones clamped round my enraged head in complete silence.
HAVE disabled the onboard facility.
Was getting a "Found new Hardware" for S/B, don't have a disc so keep trying to let it load generic driver....BSOD.
D/L Creatives driver from website, In my programmes list the "Creative Audio Controller" just brings up " The audio device supported by this application has not been detected"
"Sounds" in Control panel just says "No Audio Device"
Device Manager mentions "audio Control Manager" under "sound" and that wants a driver but that's the one that the generic driver kills the machine.
I haven't given up but AM feeling a bit frazzled at the mo.
You guys should send me an invoice for counselling.
