Howdy Julie and welcome to G2G:

You are going to have to reload the drivers for your C-Media sound card..

These will either be on the systemboard driver cd you should have received with your system or on a separate driver cd if the sound card is a separate card and not integrated into the motherboard!!

Go into Device Manager.. Now, check to see if there are any yellow or red marks beside any of the items listed in there..

Control Panel>Folder Options

Click on View and make sure the Show Hidden Files and Folders option IS marked..

The message is telling me the drivers may be on your system but they haven't been installed..
