strange lines around window items
Posted 10 August 2009 - 04:58 PM
Well, installed my ps and video card last nite.
All the wierd lines are gone!
But my sound is gone. The disk that came with the card installed some kind of audio driver.
ATI Function Driver for High Definition Audio
I disabled it in Control Panel and got sound back, but sounds really bad.

last resort ...uninstall the display driver and reboot...let windows "find" the new hardware and then use the driver cd and let windows reinstall the display driver and hopefully it wont reinstall the ati sound driver...

Uninstalled the ATI driver, but on reboot, windows found new hardware. Back to square 1.

problem is that the overall audio quality is mediocre. it used to be rich. will try some other stuff this evening.
when I uninstalled all of ccc and reinstalled, my video settings were still there from before. will have to find a way to COMPLETELY uninstall and try again.

To get rid of that unwanted driver, device, or service:
1) click on Start then Run…
2) Type in cmd press enter
3) At the cmd prompt, type in set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1? press enter.... (Note that nothing seems to happen–this is ok. We are actually setting an environment variable which is going to help us to see hidden devices)
4) On the next cmd prompt line, type in devmgmt.msc and press enter. This will launch the Windows Device Manager Console.
5) In the Device Manager Console, click on the View tab select Show Hidden Devices.
Now, as you expand the different drivers and devices in device manager you will see not only the items that Windows currently detects as installed on your pc (these are the usual items displayed), but you will also see drivers, devices, and services which have been loaded in the past but were not uninstalled or are not currently started. You can find your offending device, right click, and choose uninstall... to remove it from the system completely.
Be careful though; you should note that non-loaded devices, drivers, and services are grayed out, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you should delete all of them. Only remove items you know you don’t need. And, be careful that you don’t change too many devices or you might need to re-activate your Windows installation.
Last thing, if you accidentally exit the Device Manager Console you will need to start over again at the cmd prompt. To close the cmd prompt window, type in exit press enter
