After doing some research I sprung for "Driver Detective," and am glad I did. The software works pretty slick, and it turned out that 14 drivers needed updating. God only knows how long it'd have taken me to figure out which drivers needed to be updated, let alone find the new ones and install them. That's all done with an Install Shield.
Everything's working like a charm...except for a minor glitch with two files for the Realtek Audio Driver update. Booting up I get "ALCMTR.EXE Failed to Initialize" and then "RTHDCPL.exe Failed to Initialize." Did a search, they both show up in about six places, and I'm not sure what the deal is.
How to tell which one is the offender??
Should I roll back to the previous driver, then do a reinstall? DD says it's "good" and Device Manager says it's working properly too. Would like to get it right.
Audio works with SonicStage, but not Media Player 11, but that was the case before driver updates. Detailed that problem on the A/V forum, and unless someone has an easier fix, will likely reinstall WMP11...and pray.
