ok after uninstalling the driver from the device manager did you try to install the sound card again?


ok try to go to safe mode and check whether you are able to get same problem?

1. how do i boot in safe mode

2. how do i boot to the bios menu


TO get into Safe Mode start pushing your F8 key when the system comes up. Your BIOS is probably the Del key, but could be F2 or F10. You'll have to watch for it when the system boots up.
