what i have is Nvidia nForce Audio Codec Interface giving me trouble. When i go to play any audio, i get an error:
"Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There might not be a sound device installed on your computer, it might be in use by another program, or it might not be functioning properly."
and when i go to open my NV mixer, i get:
"The application cannot start because it could not detect NVIDIA nforce hardware on your system. If this is an nforce system, check the windows Device Manager to ensure the NVIDIA nforce audio codec interface component is not disabled or conflicting with another component. The application will now shutdown"
I've checked the device manager, there are no conflicts or other problems shown. Audio won't play at all, not just with Windows Media player. I think it started when i was downloading windows updates from the windowsupdate.com site. I got the blue screen of death, and 5 drivers die, fixed 3 of them by reinstalling, but the audio didn't fix. I accidentally installed an extra audio codec while trying to fix things, i think that may be the problem, but i can't unistall it. I've tried system restore as well, and scanned for viruses. Also, I uninstalled my enumerator..whatever that is....and don't know how to get it back either.. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated, I am running out of ideas on how to get this thing to work again!!!!
I suspect the problem is because i accidentally installed a generic audio driver, but "uninstall" isn't an option. I have found the file for the driver (audstub) in the system32 file, but am wondering if deleteing that file will cause problems for the computer since it won't properly be unintsalled.
LOTS OF THANKS
