i didn't have a stereo mix anymore when i reinstalled windows.
so i went to install some realtek sound drivers.
for some ridiculous reason the realtek sound drivers break my lan internet drivers.
i have to reinstall my lan internet drivers everytime i boot up now, which is really annoying.

anybody got a solution to this?

Ok. How about some part numbers from your motherboard possibly?

it was working just fine before, i just didn't have stereo mix
i'm pretty sure it doesn't have anything to do with the motherboard :blink:
i think its drivers conflicting or something

edit:
i found the box of the motherboard
just to be sure here it is: DG41RQ

edit 2:
apparently realtek was dumb enough to combine a network driver with a sound driver.
http://wikidrivers.com/wiki/Realtek_LAN_win61
this is the exact file i used, and the realtek website said it was for sound only.
the lan driver reinstalls every time i boot up.
i think this "RAVCpl64.exe" by realtek has something to do with this.
how do i get rid of the lan driver while keeping my stereo mix?

edit 3:
o, i didn't notice realtek made 2 separate uninstaller things for lan and audio.
uninstalling it and rebooting to see results

edit 4:
i fixed it, and my stereo mix is still there
silly realtek and their combined driver installers

Ok. Just to be sure I'm on the same page as you.

You have:
  • Windows 7 X64
  • An Intel DG41RQ Motherboard
  • And before you reinstalled Windows 7 you had no issues with Sound

If I am correct in what I am reading, I would suggest removing both the drivers and using the Windows 7 X64 drivers provided by Intel and located here.

The drivers you are looking for are:

Audio: Realtek* ALC Audio Driver

LAN: Realtek* LAN Driver for Windows* 7

Hope these help,
