I have a problem with my computer. I share a computer with 2 other people in my family and whenever i or anyone else logs in to my computer a pop up comes up and it says:


"The currently installed driver for the S3 Sonic Vibes audio controller is not compatible with Microsoft Windows XP and will be disabled during the upgrade.

For more information about this driver, visit the manufacturer's Web site at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=95. Web addresses can change, so you might be unable to connect to this Web site.

For a list of devices supported by this version of Microsoft Windows, see the Microsoft Windows XP Compatibility List at [url="http://www.microsoft.com/isapi/redir.dll?prd=whistler&ar=help&sba=compatible.""]http://www.microsoft.com/isapi/redir.dll?p...mpatible."[/url]


i am pretty sure one of the people were deleting usless thing under add and remove programs and they deleted sonic vibes or whatever but i would appreciate if anyone could explain it and help me fix it

First question: Does anyone have difficulty obtaining sound on the system?

http://members.driverguide.com/driver/deta...driverid=143923

From what I see, it's an S3 (onboard) audio driver. If it is not installed on the system and no other sound controller/card is used, someone will probably be experiencing difficulty with system audio.

The way to check: Start/Run...type devmgmt.msc...click OK. Under Sound, Game, Video Controllers there will be a yellow or red marking if the device is installed but the drivers are not installed.

Installing the drivers should take care of it.

Update Those Drivers - http://www.cyberwalker.net/columns/aug00/310800.htm

Can you tell us the make/model (manufacturer/model number) of the system, if it not custom-made? If custom made, then tell us the motherboard manufacturer and model number, please.

Louis

I looked in devmgmt.msc and under audio it showed audio codecs, legacy audio drivers, sigmaTel high def audio CODEC, and Unimodem Half-Duplex Audio Device. There were no red or yellow markings. I am not sure what system you are talking about but all i want is for someone to tell me how to stop the windows downloader thing from coming up because my computer is working fine but i want it gone.

I misunderstood your first post, sorry for that.
