How vày I remove C-Media sound drivers?

How vị I remove C-Media sound drivers?

euston (Technical
User)
I am cursed with C-Media sound drivers, courtesy of Microsoft.I cannot get rid of the d----d things.I uninstall C-Media drivers with the supplied utility.I then install a Creative PCI 128 card using the Microsoft Creative drivers & the sound is terrible.It"s not hardware.I know that this is so because when I run a different copy of Windows XP (without having been so stupid as to let XP install C-Media drivers), the sound works well.It would seem that the C-Media driver is interfering with the Creative one.

Owzat! On ya way, back khổng lồ the pavilion!


A little clarity please.Sequence of events, hardware specs, etc. Would be nice instead of just complaining...Like..."I want khổng lồ use a (insert card make & mã sản phẩm here) with a (insert PC make & model, or detailed specs, OS SP level, etc), but I am having trouble with (insert trouble here)."

Thanks for replying.The on-board sound system is disabled in BIOS.As khổng lồ the events, I installed Win
XP on a machine with a Jetway V400DB system board equipped with AC97 sound.I allowed Windows lớn install a driver for that sound system.It didn"t sound too good (very attenuated) so I uninstalled the drivers (or so I thought), disabled the AC97 in BIOS, inserted a Creative CT4810, let Windows find a driver & was disappointed khổng lồ hear a very distorted sound (the melody is apparent but it sounds on the edge of breaking up).I have to lớn say that I didn"t give much thought khổng lồ what Windows was doing when it installed the driver for the AC97 sound system.I have read that it is less than perfect at identifying audio chips.When I run a different installtion of Windows XP on the same hardware, the CT4810 behaves perfectly.I wish that I had elected to lớn disable the AC97 in BIOS & use the CT4810 on initial install.

Owzat! On ya way, back lớn the pavilion!

Windows will only replace the driver if it is newer than the installed version, also WHQL plays a part in the picture...uninstalling, ergo removing the said C-Media driver, would have to lớn be done by hand, then when you deinstall the driver per device manager it does not get deleted, just the hooks pointing lớn the hardware get reset, and upon reboot will get reinstalled...btw. Here is the link to the latest driver for that (CRP) card...http://support.creative.com/Products/Product

Name=Sound+Blasterif windows (see above as lớn why) does not switch out drivers, then unpack (use winrar or similar) the driver package to lớn a folder, then edit the ctpci2K.inf file...e.g.original file Quote:
Signature="$CHICAGO$"Class=MEDIAClass
GUID=4d36e96c-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318provider=%Mfg
Name%Driver
File=ctpci2k.cat

File=ctpci2k.cat
notice the date & version change! this is necessary lớn FOOL windows into thinking that this driver is newer than the one installed...if you are not comfortable in doing this change yourself, or just don"t want khổng lồ mess with it, then you could also look for the program called Driver
Cleaner (costs $9.99), it may be able to remove the C-Media driver completely from the system...it can be found here: http://www.drivercleaner.net/

This is most embarrassing!The problem was the speakers.Intermittent faults are the very devil.There was an extraordinary coincidence between the speakers going duff and the use of different installations of Windows XP.The speakers have now gone permanently duff & have been consigned to lớn the dustbin.I have lớn thank Big

Ben for his expertise.That post is very useful and will come in handy when I really do have a driver problem.

Euston - glad you found the culprit, and thanx for posting what the fix was... LOL, I almost suggested you kiểm tra the cabling & speakers, but that the second install worked without a flaw kept me from doing so...
