PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version: XP
Problem Application Name & Version: CMI8738/C3DX PCI Audio Device
Problem Hardware Make & Model: MSI motherboard, Model: MS-6590, V 1.0
Error Messages:



I installed some usb web-camera drivers then uninstalled them, but now my audio is gone...

when I click on volume control it says: There are no active mixer devices available. To install mixer devices, go to Control Panel, click Printers and Other Hardware, and then click Add Hardware. This program will now close.

So I try and uninstall the device but it won't let me install... everytime I try to uninstall it the system just hangs. I go into safe mode to uninstall and the same thing happens the system just hangs. I try to update the driver from the cd it hangs when trying to install, same thing happens when went to the source and downloaded the latest drivers for XP. Sound device is built into motherboard.

The yellow ! sometimes means a conflict. Click on the device then Properties. Does it give any type of error code?

It says:

Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)

But I can't uninstall the drivers!

Run the System File Checker

Go to the Run box on the Start Menu and type in:

sfc /scannow   ( sfc if not reconized)

This command will immediately initiate the Windows File Protection service to scan all protected files and verify their integrity, replacing any files with which it finds a problem. You will need your Windows cd.

Try uninstalling the driver after running the SFC
